In Val d’Orcia you will spend a holiday like nowhere else
The Val d’Orcia is such a beautiful land, so full of marvellous things, its splendid landscapes and its villages that are UNESCO heritage. We have chosen to offer you a rare holiday, the Capitano Hotel Collection holiday.
Ours isn’t just a simple hotel, it’s not one of the usual places but its a new concept of holiday. We diversified the offers to meet your requirements. We have the Villa del Capitano (the Captain’s Villa), the Palazzo del Capitano (the Captain’s Palace) and the Dimore del Capitano (the Captain’s homes). San Quirico is a village that has maintained its aspect through the centuries and its buildings are extremely charming. It is a jump into the past. That’s why we chose to use these ancient buildings, give them new life through a careful design and restoration process, with great attention to detail, to the characteristics that enrich and evaluate a unique location in its genre. In the Palazzo del Capitano you will feel the thrill of being nobles and princesses, in the Homes you will breathe the life of the city being an albergo diffuso. The rooms are scattered here and there on the streets of San Quirico and not one is the same as the other, just like the restaurant and the cellar are in different places and you will have to walk, enjoying the streets of the town, to get there. Just outside the ancient walls of the town there is the Villa. Refined and elegant, slightly secluded with modern and artistic furniture. A perfect blend with the surrounding nature.
And to complete the experience of staying in the village, we could not deprive you of some fundamental elements like good food and lots of activities in the area. You will have the best gastronomical offer at your disposal to refresh the spirit as well as the body at the Antica Trattoria Toscana Al Vecchio Forno and at the Enoteca Ristorante Petessi for more important occasions. The greatness of our land can also be discovered through its wine. You will be able to taste our wines at our Cellar, a treasure of the 1400s discovered by chance during restoration works and literally brought back to life. lastly, if you want to take a moment to relax between a walk, an excursion and a mountain bike ride, we have a Garden Bar on a splendid terrace in the Giardino Hotel.
Living in a village, discovering its charm also means being in direct contact with nature. That’s why you can ask information and book the activities you prefer through us. There are excursions on foot that will take you to unique and exclusive places, also with the use of a shuttle bus, guided tours to get to know our history better (the most glamorous tour in Europe on our barouche, is unmissable), bike rides to feel one with the surrounding nature (the most exclusive services are at your disposal, from washing your bikes, to parking and rentals), traditional cooking courses with Marcella so you can take a piece of Tuscany away with you, wine and food tours where you can see the places where they are produced, the vineyards and the farmsteads that have given us fame all around the world.
This and much more is the idea of “living the village” and this distinguishes ours from every other concept of holiday. The Genovese family and all its team await you to offer you a holiday you never find anywhere else.
