Imagine to open the window of your hotel room and lose yourself with your eyes in the green of the Val d’Orcia or in the blue of the panoramic pool overlooking the valley. The enchanting landscape of the beautiful hills that have become a UNESCO World Heritage Site is the perfect setting to get away from the daily hustle and bustle and rediscover the peace of the senses. No, it is not a dream, it is the unique experience you can live in our hotel where nature dominates everything.



Our journey towards environmental sustaina­bility is a mission to which we have dedicated ourselves for thirty years – say Sabrina and Enri­ca Bellugi owners of the structure – and that we inherited from our father Leri who in 1993 mana­ged to build a Tuscan structure where the atmo­sphere is typical of the country house, pampe­red by the gentle breeze of the Val d’Orcia that makes you forget the flow of time, immersed in the harmony of nature and its silence.

The interior spaces harmoniously combine the Tuscan style with the comfort of today highli­ghting the careful attention to detail even in the outdoor spaces made of panoramic green terraces and corners that offer a breathtaking view and unforgettable moments of peace Pool edge of mineralized water completely renova­ted in 2023 with new hydromassage facilities and waterfalls. The green of the landscape and the blue of the sky contrast with the blue of the pool that from April to November guarantee a natural color therapy even at night.



The director Sabrina Bellugi opens the doors of the Wellness Center Casanova. Here every detail is first dreamed, then created and finally cured in the time: Everything is a dream – confirms the director – a desire, an emotion, born in close col­laboration with my father Leri, the first to under­stand the infinite potential of the place and with my sister Enrica we continue to pursue this dre­am that has turned into reality. We started from a small accommodation facility, and now we have seventy units; we are always on the move: every year we offer completely new services and spaces dedicated to relaxation».
