relais alla corte del sole


The Relais is situated between Tuscany and Umbria. It is located near Lake Trasimeno, facing Cortona, and at the border of the Sienese territory of Montepulciano. So you may enjoy the view of one of the most evocative lakes in Italy, while at the same time being very closeto some of the most important cities in Tuscany for art, monuments, and landscapes: Cortona, Montepulciano, and Siena.

Time spent in our new restaurant is quite an event, whether you dine on the covered terrace overlooking the beautiful landscape or in the refined atmosphere of the dining room. After opening the restaurant in the summer of 2005, our guests now enjoy fully the owners' experience in the art of dining, with a menu that skillfully elaborates both tradition and innovation.

During their stay, guests can visit the ‘cantina’—wine cellar—where they can taste or purchase wine, products both from our zone and from various Italian regions, and try some delicious snacks.

Other services and facilities include outdoor swimming pool, free private parking, laundry service, and bike riding.


This venue is an old monastic village skilfully turned into a romantic charming Relais, set amidst the most significant expressions of Tuscan art and the Franciscan appeal of unblemished nature. The village architecture is particularly impressive with its original details beautifully preserved, such as decorative beams, old wooden doors with their original frame, and stone and terracotta tile floors.

 Symbolic and protestant weddings in the garden. Catholic weddings in a nearby church. Civil weddings either at Cortona or Castiglione sul Lago.
