On the side of mount Amiata – sort of invisible access to a fantastic realm, hidden like its underground richness – following the laws of metamorphosis, decline and rebirth, the ancient magnificence of San Processo live again. In a natural sanctuary saved from the ruthless passing of time, surrounded by a dormant volcano (already sacred to the Etrurians), enclosed by the vastness of Val d'Orcia, under the wild warmth of the maremma sun, the remains of the ancient bell tower rise in all their magnificence as a simble of what once was one of the main monastery in the medieval Amiata.
A skilful and accurate reconstruction transformed the friars' humble dormitory in an exclusive farm holidays, where the guest – inside a labirinth of symbles, fairy tales and legends – can taste a mystic aura of peace, surrounded by an ocean of history, culture and art, lulled by the rustling of the leaves of a secular forest.
In harmony with the original features of the ancient franciscan monastery, a skilful and accurate reconstruction has rearranged the internal space, creating a mixture of ancient and modern.
Among a symphony of objects d'art that witness a time that was, and an explosion of colours, the farm holidays San Processo, gives you the chance to stay in a spectacular place of great impact, visually and spiritually, which has now been divided in five cosy apartments.
A squared rock spur, once the stronghold of the monastery, a sixteenth-century portal and the many arches frame the apartments (one of which is equipped to host disabled people), provided with a wide living room with kitchenette and an en-suite double room.
