Why we've chosen Laticastelli Country Relais, Italy

Hidden by a thick Italian woodland, Laticastelli is surprisingly only a few steps from the incomparable beauty of Siena. The ancient fortress dates back to the 1200s, but a painstaking restoration has maintained the traditional features and created a wonderfully secluded Country Relais. The truly authentic architecture of this Italian 'Small Village' means you'll revel in Italian history, while soaking up the luxurious interiors and discovering new Italian dishes in the La Taverna restaurant.

How does Laticastelli Country Relais minimise its impact on the environment and contribute to a sense of place?

Laticastelli is an ancient Fortress dated 1200, which has been converted into Country Relais after a careful restoration that kept unspoilt its charming and beauty. They are in the process of installing ground-source heat pumps as Laticastelli is located in same area of thermal springs of Terme San Giovanni. Local food producers are used as much as possible, including Pecorino cheese from Val d'Orcia and Fiorentina beef steaks from Val di Chiana. To minimise their impact on Tuscany’s natural environment and is biodiversity, guests can arrive by public transport. To encourage car-free holidays, the owners offer free transfer to those travelling by train from/to the closest train station, Rapolano Terme or Siena.
