How many people can say they’ve stayed in a 15th-century convent? You can if you book Relais Chiostro di Pienza, a charming hotel set right in the heart of Pienza.
Set just 100 metres from Pienza’s cathedral, this historic hotel has well-kept gardens and a panoramic terrace offering lovely views of the Tuscan countryside.
What could be better than a refreshing dip in Chiostro di Pienza’s outdoor pool after an afternoon exploring the old churches and monuments nearby? Sun loungers are available for free.
Relais Chiostro di Pienza’s rooms feature views of the old town, the Val d’Orcia countryside or the old convent itself. All come with tea and coffee-making facilities, minibars and satellite TV and some feature original ceiling frescoes.
La Terrazza del Chiostro, the Relais’s restaurant, serves Tuscan and Italian dishes out on the terrace. Take in the panoramic views while enjoying your meal.
