DISCOVER THE PLEASANT SENSATION OF AN ELEGANT AND PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE, WITH OUR STAFF READY TO SATISFY ANY OF YOUR REQUIREMENTS.
The structure lies in the small town of Montevarchi to the south of Florence, 3 km from the Valdarno exit of the A1 Milan - Rome motorway.
Situated at the centre of the most famous cities of art like Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Cortona and the area of Chianti, it is considered an excellent strategic point for business meetings and touristic-wine & food tours.
The town deserves an in-depth visit, especially if you want to explore the narrow little alleyways which intersect linking the various parts of the "almond" making the town planning conformation of its historic centre one on its own. The market still today, is held every Thursday, as it did eight centuries ago. A market that was of such importance as to impose its own unit of measure, the "Staio Montevarchino". The monuments which deserve a visit must include the Collegiate of San Lorenzo, which preserves the adulated Relic of the "Sacro Latte". In the adjoining Museum of Sacred Art, the little temple of Andrea della Robbia, dating 1505, is a work of art not to be missed.
The glory of Montevarchi is the Paleontological Museum housed in the ex-Convent of San Lodovico which preserves many rarities, including the whole skull of an age-old Mammuthus meridionalis.
