I am myself plus my surroundings and if I do not forbid them,
I do not forbid myself.

(José Ortega y Gasset)

Living and working in an environment of rare beauty, is a privilege and carries great responsibility. Our eco-friendly hotel runs entirely on renewable energy sources, and is therefore an ideal partner of "Legambiente Turismo" and in 2013 the hotel has been awarded the EU Ecolabel.​
Over the years the hotel Montemerlo in Fetovaia was awarded for the best environmentally management of Tuscany and is also in the top 7 in Italy. In the year 2015, the hotel was finally awarded with the 1st National Award EU Ecolabel 2015.
In addition, we are now also a Bike Hotel, and so we continue our way with enthusiasm. We love it to grow and this important challenge is part of our plan for "Green Hospitality"!



The management of the hotels is taken already in the second generation by the owners since 1971 (family Palmieri).
