These charmingly cosy rooms are located in the secluded 17th-century farmhouse a few steps from the main building. The ancient building’s original features are contrasted with polished concrete floors, spacious modern showers and a flat-screen TV is cleverly hidden to not interrupt the aesthetic.
Standard with View
One of the main building’s smaller but cosier rooms with a simple, hushed feel – perhaps the room that best reflects its monastic past. Windows look out over the sprawling valley and the Chianti hills from every corner. The bed is king-size with an orthopedic mattress for ultimate comfort and the bathroom has a rainfall shower. Handpicked metal vases and angular lamps accompany the wooden furniture; the flat-screen TV is cleverly hidden to not interrupt the aesthetic.
Each unique room in this category reflects some aspect of the building’s ancient history (not least the beamed ceilings). Open-plan storage maximises the space, beds are handcrafted and king-size (with an orthopedic mattress for ultimate comfort) and some bathrooms feature double sinks carved from a single piece of stone or a standalone bath tub; all feature rainfall showers. There is a hidden flat-screen TV, too.
Superior Room with View
The valley, the hills around Badia and down to the city of Arezzo are the views in question and they can be spied from every part of the 20 sq m room – even from the rainfall shower. The bed is king-sized with an orthopedic mattress for ultimate comfort (twin beds can be requested, depending on availability), there is an open closet for optimum storage, a hidden flat-screen TV, a host of handcrafted objects and antiques decorating the room and original beamed ceilings.
Junior Suite - II
Look up and your eyes will be drawn to the ancient beam in the centre of the room, look down and you’ll gaze fondly at the free-standing bath tub. Between the two, a single piece of furniture cleverly functions as both headboard and desk, facing the room’s two olive-grove gazing windows. The bed is king-size (with an orthopedic mattress for ultimate comfort), there’s a hidden flat-screen TV and the bathroom has a rainfall shower, the aforementioned tub (although it’s technically in the bedroom) and two separate stone sinks.
