Eco Luxury retreats general information
11 Rooms | Children: yes

Lupaia is both remote and splendidly accessible. Located in the world-famous wine region of Montepulciano, it lies halfway between Rome and Florence, and is strategically close to the most enchanting historical landmarks such as Pienza, Siena, Arezzo and Perugia.

Lupaia, a country estate in the heart of Tuscany, lays on foundations more than a thousand years old, with the main house and annex dating back to 1622. The current owners, an Austrian family who also manage the inn, have created an intimate and romantic hideaway with splendid views of medieval villages, vineyards and olive groves.

The 5 stone houses, which house the rooms and suites, have been lovingly restored and welcome guests who wish to share the feeling of well-being that this special place conveys.

Retreat Projects

Waste

We try to minimize waste by avoiding plastic bottles and unnecessary packaging. The bathroom amenities (shampoo, lotion, etc.) are provided in refillable terracotta bottles. All waste is separated by category and recycled wherever possible. We use organic waste to produce compost to be used as a fertilizer in the vegetable garden.

Energy

A 20-kw photovoltaic system is installed on the roof of the parking area. The system provides 50% of the consumed electricity. Energy-efficient LED lighting was installed throughout the gardens. Air-conditioning units in the rooms have been replaced with latest-generation units with a much higher efficiency and lower energy consumption.

Local Products

We produce olive oil and cultivate a 1000 sq.m. herb and vegetable garden. Our produce is used in our restaurant kitchen, and additional supplies are delivered from farmers along the gravel road to Lupaia. Dairy products and meats are bought nearby. Our wines come from the local wine areas of Montepulciano and Montalcino.
