    Our opinion

    The Relais la Suvera is an aristocratic home, now a unique and luxurious place to stay.

    Hotel description

    The Relais la Suvera stands on a hillside commanding beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside just above the hamlet of Pievescola. There was a castle here in the Middle Ages which was then transformed into a Renaissance villa in the 16th Century. Nowadays the Relais la Suvera is the country residence of its owner the Marchese Ricci Paracciani Bergamini and his wife, Principessa Eleonora Massimo. They opened its doors to guests only in 1989 and today Relais la Suvera is an exceptional place to stay, furnished with antiques throughout and hung with original works of art. The aura of a stately but private home greets you as you arrive, and la Suvera is probably the most exquisitely and individually furnished ‘hotel’ we feature. Candlesticks, vases, ceramics, ornaments, paintings complement the style of each room, some of which are furnished in quite exact period style, for example, there is a Napoleon room and a Neo-Gothic suite. The Relais la Suvera hotel consists of 36 rooms and suites situated in four main buildings, the Papal Villa, the Stables, the Oliviera and the Farm. The style of the rooms does vary from building to building, with those in the Papal Villa, especially the suites, being the most historic and individual whilst those in the Stables are slightly more rustic and less ornate. A unique feature of Relais la Suvera are the superb public rooms, that attract national museum-status classification, such as the Library, the Pope Giulio II Hall and the Marquise Campana Hall, all furnished with precious antiques but still radiating a genuine lived-in feel. A delightfully atmospheric restaurant sits just opposite the main gates to La Suvera, where local Tuscan specialities are served together with wines from their own estate. There is also a heated outdoor swimming pool, a spa, a tennis court and shady gardens with cypress and chestnut trees.
