Albergo Posta Marcucci

Our memory is a complex faculty we have, often playing tricks and even abandoning us at times, but at times also capable of surprising us with moments of reflective silence and inner calm and joy. It is our memory that creates the image and the recall of a landscape and its beautiful colours as experienced in seasons gone by. It is our memory, at times temperamental and dizzy, which occasionally encourages us to drop everything and disappear for a few days. It is as if our mind, our heart, our very lungs are caught up in the memory, a sense of emotion and pure sentimental thought that stimulates this desire to up and go.
Our memory is often and willingly a result of pure chance: it takes its lead from that which it experiences to express itself. Sufficient it is to look from the window and see the buds from the tree right outside are about to burst and the association is of something pleasant and comforting. In fact just like what happens in Val d’Orcia - full of marvelous and poignant colours which give us a sense of equilibrium, notwithstanding the turpitudes of this world. Just like too the soothing waters of Hotel Posta Marcucci in Bagno Vignoni, an abode where the sense of wellbeing enjoys a happy time indeed. What an endeavor it is, so many persons discreetly busying themselves to ensure that all is not only in order but is conducive to a calm, peaceful and serene vacation. Whilst one floats away in the warm soothing waters, a sense of wellness works its way through to one’s very bones. Whilst we guests are concerned only with the splendor of the cypress, the oak, the maritime pine, the rolling hills and the grazing cows many are at work. The gardener is at it, so are the girls in the garden kiosk, as well as the housekeepers along the corridors above and beyond. Then the list goes on and embraces the guys and girls in the kitchen, the tidily dressed reception personnel, and in the bars and restaurant all is being polished and maintained in pristine state. As one’s afternoon passed idly, the first notes come from the long player in the Bar Verde, and it is almost time to indulge in a spa treatment which will surely heighten the senses and help abandon all thought of the daily dilemmas left behind at home and at work. The memory of such times excites, incites one to indulge, to dedicate a little time to oneself, and yes to get up and go. Surely, it will do the world of good to pass a long weekend so, even a short week break. Hotel Posta Marcucci is the solution at hand for it will be easy to release oneself from the trials and tribulations of one’s mundane life, even to gift oneself an evening bathing under the stars, to focus on the ripples of the sky, a sight we so readily push to one side in the chaotic pace of our existence. A vacation, which restores energy and restores equilibrium, gives a sense of proportion to our lives. Spring at Hotel Posta Marcucci in the heart of Val d’Orcia: a splendid part of the mosaic to keep precious in our memory bank.
