In the fall of 2018, we traveled to Italy and spent a magical week at Monteverdi Tuscany, a medieval village-turned-luxury boutique hotel. Unique from any other place we’ve ever visited, it’s almost impossible to describe. We were greeted by their staff who put hospitality at the forefront of everything they do – making us feel like we were at home at Toscana! Beyond that were Monteverdi’s exquisite suites, luxurious spa, 700-year old church, award-winning restaurant, its own Enoteca, a new lounge and terrace bar, yoga studio and the breath-taking views of the Val d’Orcia, all of which elevated our every sense.
As proprietors of three restaurants we were especially impressed by their new Culinary Academy, presided over by Executive Chef Giancarla Bodoni.* Her carefully curated philosophy of the purest food, finest wines and most impeccable service inspires our dedication to always provide the best.
We fell ridiculously in love with Monteverdi, returned this past spring and now we want to share it with you, our friends and cherished customers. To do this, we have created a new collaboration between Toscana and Monteverdi.
Toscana patrons who book a stay for three or more nights with the mention of Toscana will receive the following:
• A complimentary lunch with paired wines in Monteverdi’s fine dining restaurant, Oreade, or the Enoteca
• A room-category upgrade whenever available
We are most grateful to Monteverdi founder and owner Michael Cioffi who has generously offered to donate 10% of your total room rate to the Gordon/Brown Fellowship whose mission is to change lives by funding a college education for deserving inner-city high school graduates.
Monteverdi will claim a piece of your heart as it did ours. Enjoy the photos we’ve added here but beware – they do not do justice to the history, beauty and magic of this private little hamlet.
