    Our history

    The apartment in Monticchiello Casa Bonari was born in the late 1970s, starting with the purchase of a large uncultivated land. There was nothing where the structure now stands, only a breathtaking view surrounding so many dreams. Our grandparents Gino and Elsa and our parents Albo and Vanna started building the house with a handful of good intentions and expectations. So much work and commitment led to the birth of what you see now. Father and grandfather created the beautiful garden themselves, the olive grove, which is still cared for with great passion.

    The rest of the Val d’Orcia

    The Val d’Orcia rests in the winter months. The fields breathe, the country roads free from tourists regain their identity, as well as the splendid towns, the small villages perched around the valley. It is the season with the most beautiful colors, a palette of ocher, brown, yellow, the turquoise of the sky. And it is certainly one of the best moments to visit Monticchiello and its surroundings, in the quiet and tranquility to take a bath in one of the many spas, an e-bike ride without having to book in advance, walks in the most beautiful paths of the Val d’Orcia without meeting anyone, only the splendid nature.  …

    DANIEL SPOERRI in Val d’Orcia

    Daniel Spoerri is an extraordinary artist: choreographer, painter, dancer. He has dealt with theater, staging, direction, writing, but it is above all as a figurative artist that he has achieved notoriety, consecrating himself as one of the most interesting in the international contemporary scene. After having lived in numerous places and in the most important cities of art (Paris, Vienna, Munich only some), he reached Tuscany and in 1989 set up in Seggiano a “Garden of Wonders”, we would define it: a beautiful village at the foot of Mount Amiata. Here Spoerri has inserted works by him and other artists who offer us a varied and profound vision of the…
