In 1866 a law of the Italian Government suppresses the religious bodies, the convent of Monte Senario is requisitioned, along with all the properties of the monks, including “Casabella”, which becomes property of the state, but the following year is purchased by the family Ginori. We are in the middle of a private property of 100 hectares, just 20 minutes drive from the center of Florence. All the fully refurbished apartments 5 years ago have ample private parking available in front of the house.

For wine lovers It is easy to reach the “Chianti”, where you can visit famous vineyards and wineries but from the Residence you can also reach the marvellous beaches of the Gulf of Baratti or the white beaches of Rosignano. We are only 400 meters from the passage of the famous “Via degli Dei” a historical route that connects Bologna and Florence through all the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, walking or mountain biking admiring breathtaking views. The road had been built by the Etruscans who traveled it for at least 4 centuries (VII-IV century B.C.)  In order to develop their trades and impose their commercial domination on the Po valley; Then the Roman Consul Caio Flaminio, starting from the ancient route, built in 187 B.C. a true Roman Transapennine road called “Flaminia Militare”. Even today it is possible to admire in some stretches the ancient Roman pavement.
