Dario Mugnaioli's Il Giardino del Centro Storico offers to its guests four cosy apartments, built inside the Castle of Montemerano, in a completely renovated environment that dates back to 1400 and 1600. Furnished with a simple but elegant taste, these apartments let you enjoy to the fullest the atmosphere and the charm of this medieval village, in the Maremma countryside. They are not only architecturally appealing but they are all very versatile too. The old spaces of the castle were connected with each other and, to satisfy the needs of numerous groups, they can be connected again if necessary. The name that Dario gave to its business comes from the enchanting pergola that was waiting to be enhanced in front of one of the apartments. Dario then converted it into a garden where, every day, he takes care of it and let the plants and the herbs of his Maremma grow.
Since the mid-50s, Dario’s family made the hospitality one of its main strength and an excellent facility. From Montemerano for generations, the Mugnaioli family manages the only bar of the old town centre, the Glicine Eventi, situated right at the beginning of the village. The word “eventi” is very important because the Glicine (wisteria) is not only a bar but also the real (and unique) meeting point for tourists and the people of Montemerano. Overlooking a gracious small square, the sight gets lost in the Maremma countryside. In the centre of the square a monumental fountain, more than a century old, is the symbol of the arrival of drinking water to Montemerano.
