The Origin of Etiquette
The resort includes a number of accommodations, including a country hotel, suites, villas with private pools, and farmhouses. It also includes "La Casa", the home where writer and poet Giovanni della Casa was born and lived in the 1500s. This aristocratic author penned "Galateo", the famous guide to polite society manners which governed the noble classes for generations. At Monsignor della Casa Resort & Spa, the air of elegant living continues 500 years after its birth.
Guests love the casual yet fine decor of the rooms, apartments, and halls of the resort, blending an informal atmosphere with a timeless elegance...the perfect hospitality etiquette!
Add a touch of romance to your stay at the resort by booking the Suite Deluxe, where you can relax by the crackling fireplace during winter evenings, soak in the private hot tub, or enjoy a glass of wine on the outdoor patio. If you book early enough, you can request the canopy bed!
Relax and Recharge under the Tuscan Sun
Monsignor della Casa is more than just an elegant resort in Toscany. With its feel of a historic country hamlet and the dreamy surrounding countryside, the resort is a welcome oasis from the pace of modern life where guests can slow down and recharge.
