Relais Le Macine di Stigliano

Relais Le Macine di Stigliano

The "Val di Merse", which extends southwest of Siena, has a long and rich history. The human presence dates back to the Etruscan era. The Middle Ages left beautiful villages, ancient fortresses and many other mystical sites, such as the magical Abbey of San Galgano. In the lush nature and untouched forests of this region, lies Relais Le Macine di Stigliano. This small hotel is the result of a careful restoration of a medieval building from the 11th century.
