The charm of beauty and history.

Italian Hospitality Collection is a brand of hotels, resorts and spas in Italy. Whilst the brand name is in English so that it can be understood worldwide, the names of the hotels are in Italian, reflecting the deep-rooted bond with their host country
Chia Laguna is the Sardinian wonder. Chia is a breathtakingly beautiful coastline, a succession of golden sandy beaches lining a sea that alternates between turquoise and blue, with the shimmer of tiny silver fish swimming through shallow, crystal clear water. Then there are the dunes, covered in rushes and aromatic herbs. Behind the beaches you will find small saltwater lagoons nestled between granite headlands covered in Mediterranean brush. When you see Chia for the first time, you can hardly imagine it being any more beautiful than it is. Then one evening you see a flock of flamingos resting in the lagoon, changing from pink to white and back again as they move their wings. As you watch this spectacle you suddenly realise our understanding of beauty can be taken to a whole new level, much further than we thought possible.
The Domus de Maria coastline, which includes Chia, has been named Italy’s most beautiful for 2016 by the Legambiente Blue Guide and the Touring Club Italiano: the proof of our description of this breathtaking escape.

Three of our hotels are in Tuscany. Their names sound as if they’ve come straight out of a fairytale: Fonteverde, Bagni di Pisa, Grotta Giusti. They are indeed taken from history because each one of these hotels has a long and fascinating heritage and tradition. They are spa hotels, each resting on its own natural spring and are located in some of the most beautiful areas in Tuscany: in the hills overlooking the terracotta red roofs of Pisa, the rolling hills of the countryside and the enchanting Val d’Orcia valley.
Fonteverde was built at the end of the Renaissance for Ferdinando I de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, right in the Val d’Orcia valley. Ferdinando was a cardinal, but when his brother died, the dynasty behind the great history of Florence was left without an heir. And so he was allowed, or perhaps ordered, to leave the Church, find a wife and assume the role of the Grand Duke. Today, Fonteverde has become a stunning hotel, preserved down to the smallest details in timeless serenity. The water from its spring continues to flow as it has for thousands of years, constantly renewing itself but always using the transforming power of water. It fills the spas and pools, giving forth health and wellness and perhaps taking us back to a different experience of transcending time and self.

The history of the Bagni di Pisa starts with another Grand Duke of Tuscany, Francis Stephen, in the 18th century when royal houses were complicated and interwoven across all of Europe. Not only Grand Duke, Francis Stephen was also the husband of Maria Theresa of Austria, the Holy Roman Empress, and the father of two Queens: Marie Antoinette of France and Maria Carolina of Naples and Sicily. He commissioned the construction of a spa residence upon a natural spring in the hills just above Pisa. It had to be majestic, whilst also being understated, not only incorporating real spas, but also Tuscan art and the resplendent refinements of that century. Bagni di Pisa has become a building of exquisite taste, cosseted within a lush garden, with every last detail from its architecture to its fittings immediately reminding you that you are in Tuscany. Over time, Bagni di Pisa has become a delightful hotel for health and well-being. It now houses a state-of-the art spa complex, but has never lost its royal heritage or its subtle elegance, combining the charm and beauty of tradition with a sense of relaxation and good living.

The story of the Grotta Giusti goes back to the mid-19th century, or to millions of years ago, depending on how you think about it. Grotta Giusti is an elegant 19th-century villa in the Tuscan foothills, sitting directly above a thermal spring. More than that, however, and perhaps most importantly, it houses the largest natural thermal grotto in Europe.
Over many thousands of years, the water from the spring has transformed the grotto into a series of rooms and decorative formations in the rock, which today it is the crown jewel of the Grotta Giusti spa complex. It appears to have been specifically designed for wellness and spa treatments, with sections at different temperatures heated by the water and the steam created by nature as nourishment for the body. The same nature that, together with a team of passionate gardeners, created the landscaped gardens that surround the villa with ancient trees, lush paths, the colours of flowers and the aroma of the Tuscan countryside to nurture the soul. Many of the people that shaped Italian history and culture have come here over the years to enjoy the benefits of the spring waters, from politician and general Giuseppe Garibaldi and composer Giuseppe Verdi, to the great stars of Italian film like Alberto Sordi and Vittorio Gassman.

Italian Hospitality Collection
has brought these hotels and their diverse, yet complementary stories together. They each offer a unique experience that combines heritage with a true renewal of the senses.
