Tuscan complex with 7 apartments near to Florence. 13th Century property, beautifully restored with luxury finishes. Gardens, swimming pool, olive grove and land.
Only 12 km from the historical centre of Florence, 15 minutes away by car, on a panoramic position among the Tuscan hills of Chianti, we find this elegant period property, built around a medieval tower.
The complex,s date back to the thirteenth century, when the gentlemen of the county raised its tower house as an expression of power and dominion over the territory. In the middle of the fourteenth century the estate was bought by a wealthy Florentine family of tanners who enlarged the estate.
In the early seventeenth century the property was sold to the Benedictine monks who brought fame to the structure until the XIX Century, when they left the monastery.
A careful restoration has given style and charm to this old complex, making it a luxury solution to explore the small towns of the magical hills, rich in history, like Castellina and Radda in Chianti, Panzano and Volpaia, which retain medieval castles and palaces and the beautiful Siena. The hills of Chianti are a couple of km from the Resort.
