I know you have a ton of dedicated “escapees” but I just want you to know that not a week goes by that I don’t think of my trip with Escape To Shape. It was a game changer for me. Your business has the ability to open doors, eyes and experiences to people and change them. What a gift you have. Thank you!!!

Accommodations

This exquisitely restored and uniquely designed hotel will embrace you with sophisticated comforts, seclusion, and tranquility.  Located in a mediaeval hamlet called Castiglioncello del Trinoro, in the Val d’Orcia (a UNESCO World Heritage site), midway between Rome and Florence, Monteverdi is rich in history and character. Each bedroom and bath are a uniquely designed and decorated slice of Tuscan life- the perfect blend of simply luxury with all the amenities & beauty one could hope for. 

*Monteverdi is much more than your average hotel. A stay here is an experience in and of itself, hence the perfect home for Escape To Shape: Tuscany. With cobbled mediaeval streets, an ancient church, a peaceful pool, plenty of space for indoor & outdoor workouts and even local villagers who still call this hilltop hamlet home. Flowers, spices, herbs and vegetables are plucked straight from the sprawling gardens and chef Giancarla works with us to ensure each meal is a memorable farm-to-table experience. The spa takes a cue from the glorious Tuscan surrounds too, with herb and flower-infused treatments. As if this weren’t traditionally Tuscan enough, there’s also the ruins of a 12th-century castle to explore.

A stay here is one truly to remember...

For our brief stay in Rome (2 nights) we will be staying at the classic Baglioni Hotel Regina, a member of Leading Hotels of the World. With its prized position on Rome’s famed Via Veneto, the Baglioni Hotel Regina evokes the sensational spirit of La Dolce Vita through its original Art Deco design, luxurious furnishings in each of its 136 rooms and suites, and breathtaking views of the city. 

*Please note we will not have all of Monteverdi to ourselves but will be sharing it with other discerning travelers. The property is quite spacious so we will have private areas for our meals and activities.
