Beds made from the wood of 400 years old wine-barrels – hand made with modern design: We found old wine-barrels – taller than humans, thicker than today´s barres: Over centuries their wood got infiltrated by wine and its crystallisation. Integrated into the finest carpenter-work you sense the touch of artisan work and spirit of wine.
Healthy floor cooling/heating & air-conditioning: For a balanced and healthy room climate we integrated a cooling/heating system into the floor – as well as traditional shutters protecting your guestroom from sun-light. Additionally there is an air-conditioning in each guestroom.
Minibar, satellite TV, water-boiling facility … and literature: If it´s a cool glass of white wine, your special TV-Show, a cup of tea …. You find it all in your room. From the owner´s library you find selected books or you might leave one of your books for fellow guests.
Sunbathing, reading and writing on the private terrace: Every guestroom opens into a private Patio with lavender and roses – table, bench and shades invite for relaxation. Alternatively, guests are invited to use terraces, lounge chairs, picnic-spots all around Valdonica.
Forum´s Lounge: In the heart of the Cantina there is the Forum´s Lounge. Through it´s glass wall you are connected to the wine-cellar, where the wines are ageing in oak barrels – the Gral of Valdonica! The huge table in the Forum´s Lounge – made from the wood of medieval wine-barrels- is the center of Valdonica´s social life: Cooking, dining, tasting wines, chatting, philosophising, discussing, reflecting…
Spectacular Setting: Nestled in the vineyards, surrounded by oak-trees with a heavenly view on the hills of Maremma and the Mediterranean Sea with its island of Giglio. Surrounded by pure nature, without any sign of human civilization.
Sleeping in farmhouse-coziness: All guestrooms-walls and floors are made from solid wood and are built in traditional wooden roof-beam structure – including handmade clay tiles … all organic materials. Ecological insulation keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. The Master-Guestroom warms with private open-fire place.
Spacious Cooking/Dining&Wining/Living Lounge: Grand sliding glass doors make inside and outside confluent. This is where you meet your fellow guestds. You might wish to lit the open-fire place , cook a meal for your beloved ones or read a book from the owners Library.
Private Terrace for each Guestroom: Each Guestroom has his own private terrace. Or you might wish to relax around the kitchen garden, the lavender garden with your fellow guests. Inspirational spots all around for your sunbathing, reading, writing, chatting.
