Hotel Palazzo del Capitano Wellness & Relais is situated in the center of the Medieval town of San Quirico d'Orcia, within the boundaries of the "Parco della Val d'Orcia" which, in 2004, became an UNESCO world heritage site. The building, one of the oldest in San Quirico d'Orcia, was built in the 15th century by the powerful Biringucci dynasty whose family crest can still be found on the main facade on Via Poliziano.
Palazzo del Capitano has 16 bedrooms, the interiors of which are characterized by exposed wooden beam ceilings and terracotta floors. The rooms, each with the name of a different zodiac sign, are furnished with precious antiques and exquisite bed linen and drapes. Palazzo del Capitano Wellness Suites feature a wonderfully romantic canopied bed and Jacuzzi with chromotherapy bath for two people. In the hotel's "La Grotta di Venere" spa facility guests are able to indulge in a superb range of wellness treatments.
The wine bar and restaurant "Petessi" has been named after the former Capitano del Popolo of San Quirico d'Orcia who lived in the building during the 15th century. What once served as stables have been converted in a charming restaurant with bar. The rooms have large vaulted ceilings and feature an immense open fireplace. In the summer months, meals are served in the private garden of the hotel under the shade of the olive trees.
Guests dining at the restaurant of the Palazzo del Capitano, opposite the hotel, enjoy the finest traditional Tuscan dishes. The ancient cellar was discovered during restoration work and now houses an excellent selection of Tuscan wines including much acclaimed vintages of Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti Classico and local Orcia D.O.C.
