With 800 years of recorded history , a painstaking restoration of the ancient fabric, and a dream realised of a self sustaining green environment, Romiti provides luxury and originality to create a holiday experience the traveller will not forget.
Romiti dates from Roman times when it probably served as a watch post on the road North to the Coast and the ancient port of Luni. Archives record its reinvention as one of the first Augustinian monasteries in the early 1200's with a thriving community of canny monks who ran the religious settlement side by side with a lucrative industry of ore extraction and iron forging , making the area famous for hand made nails . It was abandoned when we found it , the buildings all but derelict and the woods overgrown. The restoration was achieved using local craftsmen , local materials and an awful lot of time. We are very proud of the result .
