About this trip

Retreat yourself! Ignite your passions, indulge your senses, and awaken your soul! Join O2 Aspen and Terri Barnett this October 17th-20th for Feed Your Soul,  a luxury retreat in the heart of Tuscany. This experience is uniquely designed to embrace you with sophisticated comforts, tranquility, and lasting transformation.  Feed Your Soul is all about nourishing you from the inside out.  

View a quick video about Monteverdi and the tranquility that awaits! 

Savor the sweet life as you Indulge yourself in this exclusive experience at Monteverdi – a rare charming hotel/spa, in Castiglioncello del Trinoro, Italy.  Imagine a hilltop in Tuscany—the kind you dream about, with views so spectacular that they take your breath away! Monteverdi sits 30 minutes from Italy's most iconic hilltop wine towns - Montalcino, Montepulciano, and Pienza and even closer to organic family-owned cheese farms, olive groves, wineries and more. 

Each room, rich in history and character, is uniquely designed and decorated to represent a slice of Tuscan life.  Monteverdi’s spa takes inspiration from modern luxury and old traditions, which includes an underground heated pool based on ancient Roman baths, a sensory shower, a cold plunge pool, treatments inspired by a hammam, and outdoor travertine soaking tubs with views of all the valley.


The rooms  (all available for single or double occupancy) are classically Tuscan: stone walls, wood-beam ceilings and views laid out like paintings from every window,  superb bathrooms with Organic La Saponari bath products, and elegant touches throughout.


Price per person for a shared room is $3200 - please specify if you have a specific roommate request or if you are open to being placed with someone. Price for a private room is $3900.

Accolades for Monteverdi

GOOP | April 2019

"Imagine a hilltop in Tuscany—the kind with views so spectacular that UNESCO deemed it a World Heritage Site, the kind with charming centuries-old buildings, the kind you dream about in the movie version of your trip. And while we’re indulging this fantasy, let’s add that the interiors have giant bathtubs, high thread counts, and the kind of preternatural beauty that could be its own coffee-table book. This hilltop exists. It’s a hamlet of a town called Castiglioncello del Trinoro. Population: sixteen, give or take. And virtually every building in this hamlet comprises Monteverdi, a boutique hotel slash spa slash wine bar slash world-class restaurant. The place is so spectacular that we quickly run out of superlatives. But know this: The spa—which includes an underground heated pool based on ancient Roman baths, a sensory shower, a cold plunge pool, a heated room with treatments inspired by a hammam, and outdoor travertine soaking tubs with views of all the valley—will make you feel like Emperor Augustus."


"Stepping inside the ancient walls of Monteverdi Tuscany is transformative. The boutique hotel, which is spread out throughout the villas and old-world buildings of the little village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro, is unlike anything else you might experience in the world. As a Unesco World Heritage Site, the windows of each carefully designed room (courtesy of Italian designer Ilaria Miani, a friend and collaborator of director Wes Anderson) reveal sweeping views of the rolling Val d’Orcia hills and vibrant greenery. It’s no wonder Anderson penned the entirety of The Grand Budapest Hotel here."

Getting There

There are three excellent options for traveling to Monteverdi:

  • Car Rental: Monteverdi is approximately a 2-2.5-hour drive from Rome to Castiglioncello del Trinoro. Please see their driving directions for the best route.
  • Car Service: You may hire the Monteverdi car service for the trip from the Roma or Florence Airport; all arrangements can be made by their concierges.
  • Train Travel: You may take the train from the Roma Termini station located at the Roma Airport to the Chiusi station where you are then picked up by a car service; again, all arrangements can be made by their concierges.

Specific instructions for all three options are available by contacting the concierge directly at concierge@monteverdituscany.com

Wow! Terri's heart is in every moment of hosting her guest, with expertise evident in her ease of leading a powerful, transformative yoga and meditation retreat. She gathered a warm and caring group of people, sharing delicious food, in a beautiful setting.
This was a wonderful experience. It was great to meet so many interesting people. The accommodations were amazing. This was a trip not to be missed.
Terri’s retreat was an amazing spiritual journey that was good for the body, mind and the heart. The most amazing women are attracted to her special transformative powers. I think everyone took as much or as little as they needed. The sunrise walks, her rigorous yoga classes and the sound baths were truly amazing. The hotel was gorgeous and the staff absolutely lovely. Thank you!
