The Tuscany region
Residence Il Monastero and San Dalmazio exude the true essence of that part of Tuscany as yet unspoilt and not so well known. Their ancient origin so evident in their very structure, with every stone and brick revealing a sequence of caring and sage adaptation through centuries. Equally around you is the visual beauty of generations of good farmland husbanding. This age long labour apparently harnessed solely so that you may indulge in a culinary feast. Olive oil, wine homemade pasta and vegetables aplenty. You can work this out, if you wish, by walking, cycling or horse riding along the meandering tracks and lanes often flanked by the characteristic and poetic cyprus trees, and always inviting you closer to nature.
Away from the commercial trappings of mass tourism, you will be rewarded by sudden and pleasant encounters with a wealth of medieval fortresses, churches and small hamlets which are dotted around the gentle hills and meet people enjoying and willing to share their slow pace of life.
All tourists know the beautiful Tuscany. Beyond famous cities (Florence, Siena, Pisa, etc...) coutryside and rural tourism has become very actractive.

"A beautiful,tranquil,place to stay ; ideal for exploring Tuscany."
Relax , enjoy the sun and plan your excursions to the delights that Tuscany has to offer. The owners are delightful and extremely helpful. Il Monastero is charming with lovely panoramic views and a wonderful place to use as a base to explore Tuscany. Visit Florence, Volterra, Sienna, Pisa, San Gimignano and its Festa,, and many more delightful Tuscan towns and villages. All are a short drive from San Dalmazio nestling in the rolling landscape of the Tuscan hills. We have stayed here several times and have introduced are daughters to its delights. Try it you will disappointed.
