This is an historic complex made up of a Romanic church (first mentioned in 1203 in the Lodo di Poggibonsi, a document which established the territories of the Republics of Siena and Florence), a 16th-century chapel, a presbytery and a rural building. The monastery has always been a spiritual centre. It is a place with a soul. In every corner one can feel the atmosphere, history and spiritual energy built up over the centuries. The position in the Chianti Hills near Siena and Florence, in the heart of the Renaissance, makes it the ideal place for this initiative (8 km from Radda and Castellina, 12 km from Siena, 45 km from Florence).
The overall u-shaped site embraces a large piazza of 1.100 square metres.
The property (2,700 sqm - 29,052 sqft) includes a large private residence on two levels, nine large double rooms and eight suites, all with private bathroom and modern comforts, an apartment for living-in warden, a Romanic church, a 16th-century frescoed chapel, the medieval cellars, a professional kitchen and all the storage and warehouse facilities to serve the hotel, a large underground garage (9 parking spots), a Turkish bath, the 16 × 7 m swimming pool with technical room, an ample panoramic terrace overlooking the beautiful historic garden enclosed by a stone wall.
The church and the underground cellars offer the possibility to hold different workshops, meetings and study sessions simultaneously. The frescoed chapel is the perfect setting for breakfasts, coffee-breaks, buffets and evening dinners.The large piazza, terraces, gardens, swimming pool and woods, all surrounded by the magic of Chianti countryside, offer idyllic outdoor space for concerts, group work or moments of individual introspection and meditation.
