Hotel description

The Valdonica Vineyard Residence is set in a peaceful corner of picturesque Tuscany, surrounded by meadows, forests, lakes and vineyards perfectly suited to extended walks. Each of the 9 rooms is decorated in bright colours and has its own private garden with a terrace and sun loungers. The rooms are replete with lovingly realised details such as handmade furniture, bed linen and towels, and a small selection of literature. However, each room is also equipped with modern comforts including a minibar, TV and DVD player.
Winery Hotel: Traditional Italian bed & breakfast in Tuscany
The beautiful Valdonica Winery, where the hotel is located, is set amid sun-dappled hills and enjoys views to the Mediterranean Sea and island of Giglio. The traditional bright and airy architecture of Tuscany is evident in the 9 rooms, where it is skilfully combined with modern design. Meanwhile, the importance of viticulture is evident in every detail of the hotel and throughout the grounds. The residence produces its own wines, which have won international awards and can, of course, be sampled on-site. Guests that wish to understand more about the wine-making process are free to explore the vineyards on their own or participate in a grape harvest.
Romantic Hotel: private atmosphere and loving details
Guestrooms at the Valdonica Vineyard Residence stand out from those of other hotels. Lovingly designed, they evoke the surrounding wine country with individual touches, including handmade bed linen, towels and bathrobes, as well as high quality furniture designed by local artisans. The private terrace invites visitors to relax with a glass of fine wine. In addition, visitors can compare flavours with other guests while enjoying the wonderful views of the surrounding vineyards during wine tasting events on the hotel terrace. Those looking for an even more intimate experience can exclusively hire the Villa Valdonica, located in a private setting 100m from the main house. Villa Valdonica offers 3 double rooms, all with private bathrooms, while guests can choose to enjoy the hotel catering or cook for themselves in the well-equipped kitchen.
Ecohotel: Sustainable eco-philosophy
Due to its unique setting and focus on the natural environment, the Valdonica Vineyard Residence is an ideal retreat for nature lovers and those in need of peace and quiet. The rolling hills and vineyards of the area form part of the Maremma region, which stretches along southern Tuscany’s Mediterranean coast. To help preserve this precious landscape, the owners of Valdonica Vineyard Residence have opted to operate the plant on a sustainable ecological basis. All grapes are grown organically and even the power supply is ensured via renewable sources.
Food & Drink: Hearty breakfasts, Tuscan specialities and local wines
Breakfast is served on the hotel’s terrace and takes the form of a buffet spread, where guests can enjoy fresh produce supplied by small local companies. This includes homemade jams and ham and cheeses particular to Tuscany. There are also weekly wine tasting events, which are combined with a dinner. These take place in the hotel’s atmospheric wine cellar, where local wines are served alongside traditional Tuscan dishes.
Sports & Recreation: outdoor swimming pools amid lush grounds, exploring the vineyards
Only a two minute walk from the villas the hotel’s outdoor pool is harmoniously integrated into the vineyards and offers a spectacular view over the Maremma to the Mediterranean Sea with the island of Giglio. Another pool is about 20 minutes walk away from the guest rooms and can also be reached by car within 5 minutes. The pool is picturesquely set among olive and oak trees, and swimmers can soak in the views of the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel grounds are a great starting point for long walks or cycle rides through the extensive surrounding vineyards, during which guests can not only enjoy the beautiful Tuscan countryside, but also observe the countless flocks of sheep that wander free in the local area. The medieval city of Grosseto, which offers bars, restaurants and shopping facilities, as well as an architecturally interesting historic centre, is 20km from Valdonica Vineyard Residence.
