Meaning forbidden place, here were housed the guards who watched over and protected the kings and emperors traveling from the north to Rome.

An isolated but strategic position dominating the Orcia valley, on the way from Sarteano to Radicofani, the Abbey represents a typical example of an architectural complex that, through the centuries, has been involved in historical events that have changed its very structure.
The present owners bought the Abbey in 1989 and began a long period of restoration over fourteen years resulting in the complete recovery of the monastic building and twelve villas belonging to the property.
Spanning over 2500 acres, Tenuta di Spineto encompasses approximately 70 km of private roads, framed by verdant valleys, a small lake, wooded hills and cultivated fields. The villas are secluded one from the other, each in an isolated position that guarantees complete privacy and tranquility.
The estate offers the possibility of swimming, walking, fishing and relaxing. On the edge of the vast nature reserve that makes the Val d'Orcia a perfect spot for nature lovers. All manner of flora and fauna can be found throughout the grounds including tuscan deer, wild boar, rabbits, foxes as well as plant life to satisfy any botanist.
Visitors soon realize that Spineto is not simply a place, it's more a way of being... a special, diverse way in which to relate to others and ourselves, close to nature in the evocative atmosphere of a spot full of energies. When the stay is over, leaving with heavy hearts, many guests ask to return with family and friends.
