The restored maisonettes are part of a years-long endeavor to restore a country estate deep in rural Tuscany. The work is led by the owner of the estate Michael Moritz and the hotel’s CEO Luciano Lusardi. The improvements have included transforming the old well-house into a spa, converting a farm building into a contemporary art building and renovating several maisonettes.
Guests staying in the new maisonettes will notice the original terracotta floor, wood-beamed ceilings, open fireplaces and stone archways. Each has its own unique antique furnishings and artwork.
Casa del Guardia is the renovated first floor of a 17th-century building that in the 19th-century functioned as the home of the estate’s guard. The maisonette includes large bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms with showers. Casa del Guardia looks out over the estate and on to the wide Tuscan hills.
Stallina, a 17th-century building, was once an animal shelter. Now the maisonette includes a living room, kitchenette and bedroom. Stallina’s private terrace offers a clear view of the surrounding hills.
L’Antica Stalla is found on the ground floor of another 17th-century stone building. The maisonette’s two bedrooms, each with private bathrooms, feature original vaulted ceilings. From the building’s large balcony, visitors can see the countryside around the estate.
