Location of the Castle Hotel Talamonaccio

An old medieval tower with a castle attached to it stands on a mountain near Talamone Bay. It is located in Tuscany (Republic of Siena), on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea. This region is famous for its mild climate, clear sea and pristine pine forests.


History of the Castle of Talamonaccio

The exact date of construction of the Torre di Talamonaccio is unknown. It was erected around the beginning of the 13th century as a watchtower to protect against the Saracens. Talamonaccio stands on the highest point of the coastline - the water surface is perfectly visible from it.

Tower of Talamonaccio - from a medieval castle to a modern hotel

In the 19th century, the military fortification turned into a private residence. Now the castle retains its medieval flavor and architecture - it has been restored in the South Tuscan style and combines ancient reliability and modern design. By the way, it was here that a fragment of the James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" was filmed.

The main building (castle) is two-storey. Let's go inside.

Passing through the main entrance, you find yourself in a cozy lobby. It does not at all resemble the gloomy interiors of medieval hotels - it is a bright Mediterranean-style room. Also on the ground floor there is a kitchen and three bedrooms - each has its own bathroom, decorated in soft milky tones.

Cozy sofas and armchairs, a fireplace, a dining area with an antique table of the 16th century, an antique kitchen set that serves as a mini-bar - you can spend long hours here with a friendly conversation. There are also modern amenities such as air conditioning and a 32-inch SKY LCD TV with DVD.
