We were fortunate to enjoy the most delightful visit to the Hotel Monteriggioni on our recent visit to Umbria and Tuscany in June. We had briefly visited Monteriggioni the previous year whilst on a wine tour. We spied the Hotel and thought that it would be an idyllic option for a stay at some point. We were not disappointed! Being at the tail end of a long three week Europe trip – we live in Hong Kong - we were feeling a little jaded at this point. The opportunity to sit in the beautiful garden relaxing with a book and a glass of prosecco was bliss! Gigi, the charming owner, very kindly chilled our shop bought bottle for us. Outstanding service – nothing was too much trouble for this gentleman! We were allocated a lovely, spotless room with a good sized bathroom. All bathroom amenities were of a high quality. And then we got to breakfast – I can honestly say I have never seen such a beautifully presented spread! The opportunity to sit out on the terrace added to the relaxing ambience and the pastries, bread and croissants on offer were simply divine! In addition there were the usual Italian breakfast staples of meats and cheese. Gigi could not have been more helpful in suggesting options for dinner – we went to his recommendation, Il Pozzo, and had a wonderful evening with superb food. One of the nicest things about staying the night in Monteriggioni is experiencing the calm that descends on the place once all the daytrippers have left for the day! We certainly intend to return. Thank you Gigi for being such a welcoming host.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The building, which is in the heart of this charming medieval fortress, dates back to the 17th century and is now home to the superior 4 star Hotel Monteriggioni. The original architectural style has been preserved during the restoration, creating, together with the tasteful furnishings, a luxurious setting where guests can enjoy a private yet elegant atmosphere. Twelve luxury bedrooms – each with its own particular character – and “La Maison”, a most charming apartment, look out over the boundary walls made famous by Dante in his Divine Comedy. The centuries-old olive trees and the stone swimming pool in the garden offer our guests quiet areas for reading, enjoying a long breakfast or simply relaxing. The owners, Michela Gozzi and Luigi Cagnazzo, are always ready to answer any questions about the major Tuscan art cities and the ancient villages of the area.
