Discover La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena, Curio Collection by Hilton, which was formed from the medieval villages of Bagnaia and Filetta.

La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena, Curio Collection by Hilton was constructed when mighty kings and towering castles ruled Europe for centuries following the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena, Curio Collection by Hilton, is composed of buildings that date back to Fall of the Roman Empire. But the first written evidence of La Bagnaia is in a document from 1081. It is a signed donation by the Emperor and King of Germany, Henry IV (Arrigo the Fourth). Other documents from this time period include papal bills by Pope Alexander III (1159-1181) and Pope Innocent III (1198-1216).

The village that La Bagnaia calls home was settled around 900-400 B.C. The village prospered for many years before experiencing a blight. This led to the bishop of Siena merging the Parish of Bagnaia with nearby Filetta. The rebirth came several decades later, when the notable Jacopo Bichi bought the whole estate. The purchase included all houses, cultivated fields, springs, and woods. The wealthy Bichi family decided to build their country residence on the land, and restored the ancient homes. The site of the former Bichi-family estate is now the La Bagnaia Resort.

In 1954, Attilio Monti acquired the La Bagnaia. There were over 2,700 acres of land at the time. Over the years, Monti’s daughter, Marisa Riffeser Monti, turned it into one of the best resorts that visitors could find all throughout Tuscany. Now known as the La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort Siena, Curio Collection by Hilton, this 25-acre resort still resides within the ancient medieval villages of Filetta and Bagnaia that the Bichi family once owned.
