experiences

divine dining

Michelin-starred La Torre is in the former stables, but no trace of the original residents remains in the elegantly muted dining room, decorated with terracotta-tiled floors, arched ceilings and polished slate tables.

As you’d expect, the menu is a love letter to Tuscany; executive chef Giovanni Luca Di Pirro uses the finest ingredients sourced from local farmers or directly from the estate’s organic garden. The dishes are seasonally inspired, with crispy greens and fragrant herbs in spring and rich truffles and wild boar in autumn. 

sip & savour

In the former castle kitchens, the bar is an atmospheric space, all exposed red brick, flagstone floors and arched ceilings: sip a local wine with a plate of cured meat and cheeses and you’ll feel like landed Tuscan gentry.  Choose from Champagne, reserve cognacs, grappas and whiskies, or have the hotel’s expert mixologists whip up one of their enticing signature cocktails.
