For something a little extra special the hotel Concierge can arrange a host of experiences including wine-tasting with a Sommelier in the hotel's courtyard or at a prestigious local winery, the opportunity to take part in harvesting saffron and then learning to cook with the spice, or natural winemaking courses.
Culture & History
For a little more history take a trip, with or without a Guide, to the delightful medieval walled town of San Gimignano, a Tuscan castle, or the cities of Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca.
Characterised by endless vineyards, rolling hills and centuries of the world's favourite art, culture and food, Tuscany is synonymous with romance. Wake up in your luxurious suite and enjoy an exquisite alfresco breakfast on a sun-dappled terrace, before strolling hand-in-hand through the estate's thirty acres of pretty olive groves. Explore the idyllic streets of nearby Siena and Florence together, taste the region's beautiful wines, or unwind with the spa's indulgent 'Romantico' ritual - including a deep-soaking couple's rose petal bath and a synchronised massage, all accompanied by a flute of chilled Prosecco.
Spa & Wellness
Nestled on a picturesque hilltop and formerly the estate's wine cellar, The Essere Spa is a haven of relaxation and serenity. With seven luxurious treatment rooms - boasting traditional barrel-vaulted ceilings and restored stone walls - you can choose from the extensive and varied menu of therapies, traditional and modern, each inspired by local ingredients - rosemary, grape and olive oil. As well as creating their own homemade, organic beauty products, The Essere Spa hosts unique workshops in which you can learn to make your very own products, allowing you to continue your Tuscan journey of wellness at home.
Children’s activities and a babysitting service are available.
