Located in the countryside of Arezzo (where Life Is Beautiful and Under The Tuscan Sun were filmed), Torre Santa Flora is a unique place to stay for experiencing the best nature, art, wine and food of Tuscany and Umbria.
Only 15 minutes from Arezzo’s highway and railway stations, Torre Santa Flora is a perfect starting point for visiting Cortona, Firenze, Siena and Perugia, which are less than an hour away. Moreover, Torre Santa Flora is situated at the entrance to Chianti and Casentino.
Mentioned by Dante in his Divine Comedy, The Casentino is a splendid valley rich in medieval villages, castles and monasteries preserving unique landscapes and old recipes.
This particular historical dwelling is composed of two different buildings: the seventeenth-century Villa and the Medieval Tower.
Its Villa – once a place of rest and refreshment for knights and travelers – continues its tradition of hospitality offering 11 elegant rooms with exquisite Tuscan furnishings. The bedrooms are surrounded by a bar, a winery, a restaurant and an old family sitting area, which is heated by a traditional fireplace.
Its Tower lies along the shores of The Arno, upriver from Florence. Once a Lungbard Tower (and then a Mill Tower that belonged to the Benedictin Monks of the Santa Flora and Lucilla order), the beautiful and rare building now offers 4 Junior Suites overlooking the waters and the hills of the Casentino valley.
Between the tower and the villa in a romantic atmosphere, are placed the swimming pool and a terrace, within a lovely garden, which in summer becomes the ideal setting for lunches and dinners.
Among other activities offered to guests: spa treatments, oil and wine tastings, private and corporate events organization, while the surrounding area you can enjoy golf, horse riding and tennis.
