Relais La Costa Dimora Storica

7 rooms, 1000 years of history

An old post house of the year 1000, a precious refuge for those peregrines and wayfarers that used to travel along the Via Francigena to visit St. Peter’s tomb in Rome. Nowadays, that old shelter is still a refuge: for hearts, souls and bodies.
Surrounded by fifty hectares of uncontaminated forests, Relais La Costa is, in fact, a timeless place. A peaceful oasis that holds the essence of natural beauty. History, art, elegance and harmony with nature coexist exactly here, among the hills of Chianti, which softly surround Siena on the one hand, and Monteriggioni on the other. Here you can smell the scent of history, thanks to a process of restoration that has preserved the authenticity of a magic place, ready to offer hospitality to any XXI century traveller with the enthusiasm of one thousand years ago.
Relais La Costa is the ideal destination for anyone who wants to relax and experience unique and unforgettable emotions, like the spectacular view of Siena, thanks to the different levels of the structure. More than a destination, it is a starting point to explore the typical hamlets around Siena, the wonderful landscapes of Chianti, Val di Chiana and Val d’Orcia.
Relais La Costa offers to the guests a series of services in order to make them experience a unique and unforgettable stay. Everything in the Relais is characterised by beauty and relaxation. The Spa “L’Eremo del Benessere” is a place of meditation and rest, where you can be cuddled and taken back to the past through the pleasures of present. The fantastic swimming pool, completely nestled in the relaxing greenery of the park, in the wonderful observation deck, which is the highest point of the building, makes you can admire Siena and the surrounding hills. Nestled in the greenery as well, there is a great heated hydro-massage pool, equipped with a private space near the majestic olive grove.
If you want to abandon yourself to the pleasures of the table, there is “La Sosta del Viandante”, the lovely restaurant of the Relais that proposes typically Tuscan hand-made meals. The ingredients are always fresh and come from a rich and generous territory, which finds its highest sense exactly in the fullness of its flavours. You can admire the orchard and the vegetable garden on the slopes of the Relais. They daily offer fruit and vegetables used to prepare the dishes for the guests, and only a small quantity of extra virgin oil is periodically produced in order to preserve its aroma.
As regards the rest, the Relais offers seven wonderful Suites, which harmoniously combine the charm of a historic house and the highest ease of spacious rooms equipped with any comfort.
