The use of typical materials from the area of Val d'Orcia (Tuscany) becomes an essential element in the recovery of the three Monteverdi villas at Castiglioncello del Trinoro, within the valley declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

One of the villas has been converted into a hotel by interior designer Ilaria Miani, who made the typical elements of the Tuscan country house, like the use of local stone-flagged floors, the recovery of the original wooden beams and the use of Carrara marble, key details in the interior design project.

The basic furnishings, blend perfectly with local craftsmanship and works of contemporary art. The project also includes redesigning the exteriors, including a swimming pool and courtyard.
