The historic residence currently housing the Relais San Giuliano was built in the 1700s by the Marquis of San Giuliano, within a large estate of hilly land, once planted with vines. The complex is arranged round an internal courtyard, and includes, among other buildings, the Casa del Massaro (the farmer’s home) and the Palmento (winery), renovated fully respecting their identity. A stylish a corner of heaven, characterized by careful attention to detail.
The property features a restaurant, a lounge bar, a small wellness centre and a comfortable infinity pool surrounded by the garden.
The Relais has 11 rooms and suites, characterized by a unique and refined design. The skilful use of natural materials such as wood, terracotta, iron, glass and ceramics makes the rooms highly welcoming and comfortable, also suitable for long stays.
All rooms have double beds, free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, heating, kettle and a selection of teas and herb teas.
The "Sabbia Nera" Spa, which was once the home of the farmer, is a small wellness temple, complete with Turkish bath, Finnish sauna, Jacuzzi, emotional showers and relaxation area with tea corner.
