Hotels Val d'Orcia • Relais Palazzo del Capitano

The palazzo del Capitano has reappeared after an extensive and detailed restoration, as a charming hotel with eleven gracious rooms offering modern comforts whilst retaining the fascination of the ancient architecture and enhanced by furnishings following the true Tuscan tradition.


Inaugurated in March 15th the'"Enoteca Ristorante Petessi" gets the name of the former Capitano del Popolo of San Quirico d'Orcia who lived in this building in the 15th century.
The former stables with the original vaulted ceilings have been converted into a restaurant room with bar and a large fireplace. In a welcoming atmosphere of the internal room or under the shade of olive trees guests can enjoy typical dishes based on traditional Tuscan recipes, for those who want to discover tastes and flavours of past times.
In summer guests can relax in the large garden amongst lavender and aromatic herbs in the shade of vines and ancient olive trees. Roberto and Cosetta Genovese's hospitality is both descreet and relaxing.
This oasis of peace is the perfect place to organise wedding banquets and wine tastings.

There are two different roads, one is fast and directly goes to Siena, the other one follows the hills of Chianti and touches many nice towns. Arrived in Siena, you have to exit at "Siena sud" and take the "SS 2 - Cassia", direction Monteroni d'Arbia, Buonconvento and San Quirico d'Orcia.
