A Tree-Filled Spa That Brings Warm Modernism to a 900-Year-Old Tuscan Village

Set amidst rolling hills in the 900-year-old village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro, in Tuscany’s Val d'Orcia region, is The Spa at Monteverdi, where history flows into the 21st century.

Owned and restored by lawyer Michael L. Cioffi, with interiors designed by Rome-based restoration expert, Ilaria Miani, The Spa at Monteverdi Tuscany brings the colors and textures of the region into the spa's richly textured treatment rooms and outdoor areas. 

This particular part of Tuscany is fed with natural thermal springs known for their healing properties, which makes it an ideal site for rest and rejuvenation.

The spa’s treatment rooms and plunge pools are designed with warm, light, and organic colors that put guests at ease as they enjoy treatments such as body scrubs and lavender oil massages. 

The spa also includes a mini-fitness area with Techno-Gym equipment. Giant pendant lights, plenty of unvarnished wood, three trunks that rise from the ground indoors, and a sunlit patio surrounded by trees give it the welcoming feel of an ancient village apothecary.
