Residence Le Santucce is located in the heart of Castiglion Fiorentino, a medieval village nestled in the hills of the Val di Chiana, in an area rich of history, art and tradition. Ancient convent founded in the thirteenth century by the Benedictine Sisters, was recently renovated into a cozy residence that retains all the charm of its history. There are numerous vicissitudes that involved the building over the centuries, from the construction of the first group of monks in 1234, of which traces remain in the loggia with pointed arches, until the abolition of the cloistered convent in 1810 and his move to private residences.
Carefully restored respecting the original features, is now a charming residence with rooms and apartments of various types and sizes that can accommodate up to 40 people, with large terraces from which to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding valleys.
