Hotel Relais Palazzo del Capitano
The Relais Palazzo del Capitano is situated in the centre of San Quirico d'Orcia, a well-known Tuscan medieval village in the heart of Val d' Orcia in South Tuscany.
Built in 1400 by the Biringucci family, Palazzo del Capitano, after lengthy but detailed restoration work has now been returned to its ancient splendour. Today the building is a charming hotel with beautiful rooms and suites, all equipped with every modern comfort whilst retaining the fascination of the ancient architecture and enhanced by furnishings following the true Tuscan tradition.
Breakfast is served in the former stables with vaulted ceilings in front of an open fire. In summer guests can relax in the large garden amongst lavender and aromatic herbs in the shade of vines and ancient olive trees. The characteristic wine cellar guards "treasures" of the most famous Tuscan wines, from Brunello di Montalcino to Nobile di Montepulciano, from Chianti Classico to the local Orcia d.o.c.
Just a short distance from the Relais hotel is our restaurant 'Al Vecchio Forno' . Here guests can enjoy the flavours of antique recipes accompanied by fine Tuscan wines from the old cellars.
Clients are offered a rich buffet breakfast, comfortable rooms with canopied beds, air –conditioning/heating, TV sat, telephone, safe, private bathroom with shower, public swimming pool with shuttle service.
In April 2008, after an extensive and detailed restoration, Palazzo del Capitano offers 5 new Wellness Suites, a new lobby "Salone dello Zodiaco", a wellness centre "The Venus' Suite" and a new Boutique in the main street, in addition to the already existing Boutique in front of the hotel main entrance, where delicate fragrances, creams and body products made with olive oil and aloe vera can be purchased.The Wellness Suites offer all comfort for an memorable stay, all with a queen size canopied bed, a Jacuzzi with cromotherapy bath for two people, TV plasma, mini-bar, fireplace and a marble bathroom with shower.
