Like every year, we write to you to inform you about the news that is waiting for you this 2020. We are young and dynamic management and we like the changes, especially when they help to improve. In this case, the improvements concern your stay in our two hotels, Hotel della Fortezza in Sorano and La Casa degli Archi in Pitigliano. We have studied for you three new thematic Special Offers, to transform your stay in the hilltop towns in real unforgettable experience.
Staying in one of our two structures, you will have access to three different thematic special offers, dedicated to the gastronomy of the territory, the thermal and holistic wellness, and the discovery of the cultural highlights of the three villages Sorano, Pitigliano and Sovana.
Maybe you still don’t know that the territory of the hilltop towns has a lot to offer, even if it is not a tourist destination. This corner of Tuscany still almost unknown hides big surprises, especially if you visit the area for the first time. Just for this reason, we have created three thematic special offers to allow you to dedicate yourselves to the activity you prefer to discover the territory, not only the mere visit of the historic centers.
The three packages
The first experience that we want to suggest you is a stay dedicated to the discovery of all the museums and Etruscan necropolis of the three villages, because we’re actually in love with the history of Southern Tuscany. In addition to a welcome aperitif with volcanic wines and two dinners, you will have at your disposal our cumulative Love&Food Card. We are talking about a discounted ticket that will allow you to visit all the museums and archeological parks of Sorano, Pitigliano and Sovana. In particular, it includes:

With the help of the headlight that we will give you, you will get into the darkness of the woods among sacred roads and mysterious necropolis.
In addition to the love for the history of this still mysterious places, we have a great passion for good food and good wine.

During the dinner at the local restaurant, you will have the possibility to taste the traditional dishes of the area. We are talking about homemade pasta, like pici, tortelli with spinach and fresh ricotta, main courses with wild boar, hare and roe.
In addition to the classic dinner at the restaurant, we want to offer you something more particular, a tasting dinner with high-quality local products served like Spanish tapas in the stunning tasting room of the fortress, the EnoRistrò. A unique place where to taste unique products. The focus of this menu is to let you taste the simplicity of the raw products with very simple recipes, from the production to the table.
To end with the bang, a tasting of the volcanic wines of Sassotondo cellar right in the location of the EnoRistrò, with the company of the owner of Hotel della Fortezza.
Did you know that because of the presence of two extinct volcanoes, Bolsena lake and Amiata mountain, the territory of the hilltop towns is characterized by the presence of natural hot springs? The underground is rich in thermal water and it offers the possibility to relax also in winter in the hot water, surrounded only by nature.
Many of you surely know Terme di Saturnia, that is about 30 minutes by car from Sorano and Pitigliano. Today we want to introduce you a smaller and less-known thermal center close by Hotel della Fortezza and La Casa degli Archi. Included in your package you will have the entrance to Terme di Sorano, a small and quiet center. It is a place where to forget the stress of daily life and think only to personal wellbeing.
A new idea that is born recently is to allow you to enjoy a private massage in the EnoRistrò. The big room of the EnoRistrò is usually used for the tastings, but at first, it was born to be a multifunction area called L’Isola che non c’è. With some relaxing music, the perfume of oils and incenses and the warmth of the stove, you will be able to dedicate yourselves to the pleasure of a massage, done by our best expert masseuses. A special occasion for a holiday in a couple or, why not, with the family.
