Your Destination

Situated in Colle Val d’Elsa in the veradant green of the Tuscan countryside, Hotel Relais della Rovere sits between Siena and Florence in wine-centric Tuscany. An ideal base for discovering Tuscany’s touristic sites, Hotel Relais della Rovere is fully surrounded by a spectacular park that spans over 2 hectares – creating a tranquil and private space where guests can walk through nature and history, pore over a good book in the ancient courtyard and revel in the century-old scene of Colle Val d’Elsa.

Renting a car is highly recommended, as there is much to do in the area from sampling wine in the Chianti region to acquainting oneself with renaissance masterpieces in Florence.

Relais della Rovere 4*

This entirely unique hotel is a converted monastery for Benedictine monks built in the 1100s and in the 15th century, was home to its namesake Cardinal Della Rovere, who later became Pope Julius II, a keen patron of renaissance artists such as Michelangelo and Raphael. The Relais della Rovere, dipped deeply in historical context and scattered with the Pope’s coats of arms, oozes rustic charm and a sense of warming hospitality.

A beautiful park surrounds the entire building and features a seasonal travertine marble pool where guests can relax and enjoy the charming view of Colle Val d'Elsa, the Town of Crystal. Here you will find total relaxation against a stunning backdrop that seems to jump straight out of an oil painting and come to life before your eyes. The Relais is equipped with everything you need to make your stay in Tuscany as peaceful and memorable as possible.
