History & Story
The aura of Fonteverde is waiting for you at the magnificent Medici palace in San Casciano dei Bagni, a precious medieval village nestled in the rolling hills of Siena. Commissioned in 1607 by the Grand Duke Ferdinand I, this beautiful residence is a fitting tribute to the Italian Renaissance.
The contours, materials and furnishings reflect the utmost attention to detail. Everything seems to recall the splendour of the past, while offering the most innovative and modern comforts. From the breezy terraces you can enjoy a beautiful landscape, dotted with farmhouses, monasteries and villages. History and tradition are everywhere, and even the palate finds satisfactions with traditional flavours and recipes handed down from generation to generation, and reinterpreted with a modern flair.
Walk along century-old cobblestones, look out onto the beauty of Val d’Orcia, enjoy the hot springs for a journey of rejuvenation. At the Fonteverde Spa Resort in Tuscany, Italy, every simple gesture takes on a magical significance.
