Castel Porrona Relais

In an enchanting medieval village with two dozen inhabitants, surrounded by Tuscan hills dotted with olive groves, cypress trees and vineyards near Montalcino, lies Castel Porrona Relais.

The five star boutique property is composed of 25 rooms and a private Castle with personal butler for exclusive use. Swimming pool, water zone and SPA, a Tuscan cuisine restaurant and bespoke service provide a wonderful hideaway escape in the Tuscan countryside.


After careful renovation and interior design, Castel Porrona Relais offers its guests refined hospitality in an ancient borgo. The hotel has 25 rooms and suites, a spacious lounge with a piano bar, a restaurant with large outdoor spaces and an AGUA SPA. History, exclusivity and refined service are the distinctive features of the Castel Porrona Relais.

Agua Spa, with facilities covering some 800 sq. m, offers its guests a unique experience of relaxation and wellbeing. Agua Spa comprises indoor pools and a large outdoor swimming pool (open from June to September), hydro-massage tubs, sauna and steam room as well as numerous areas for relaxation, whether indoors or in the well-equipped gardens. 

The “Restaurant del Chiostro” serves local Tuscan cuisine with a modern twist. Its unfussy dishes and careful selection of the best local ingredients allow it to offer diners a true, high-calibre gastronomical experience. The restaurant is housed in the former farm buildings and, in addition to its internal rooms, it has a large outdoor area that can be used in the summer months and is also available for private events.


Relais Castel Porrona sits at the heart of a region rich in history and cultural heritage. Towns such as Siena, Florence, Montepulciano and Arezzo, with their monuments and famous museums, are just a short distance away. Also of note, near Porrona, is the beautiful Romanesque abbey of Sant’Antimo, with the religious order of the Premonstratensians. Small towns, off the main tourist trail, offer numerous cultural attractions and can be visited in peace and quiet. The Relais can also arrange cultural tours with a private guide, upon request.


Castel Porrona Relais is located a short drive away from main attractions such as Siena and San Gimignano as well as from the hot springs Bagno Vignoni, Saturnia and the coast of Punta Ala, Castiglione della Pescaia and Porto Ercole. The perfect secret escape for an exclusive holiday with access to the Tuscan countryside and seaside.
