During the Middle Ages, the cloistered gardens were important places immersed in the silence of the abbeys. Secluded places, walled and protected, associated with an understanding of Paradise as a place of joy. They were called “gardens of the simple”, because of the simplicity of the herbs from which were extracted the essences of natural healing.
What was once the garden where, in the silence and stillness, the monks dedicated themselves to a meticulous and passionate work of cultivation of plants and aromatic and medicinal herbs, has become a green area designed for relaxation, at the disposal of hotel guests.

A relaxing green space, modern tables and chairs, simple furnishing, is the green framework for a modern style, elegant, and refined, where guests can relax, sipping an organic herbal tea before breakfast, or just admiring the starry sky after dinner and before going to sleep.

The garden is the place to find yourself and relax
