"Casabella" is an ancient villa built in 1796 surrounded by the beautiful Florentine Hills. The villa had been built by the monks of the nearby monastery of Montesenario to host the numerous pilgrims who came from Florence; at the time they had to walk a day and a half to go from Florence to this famous sanctuary. Casabella was built to allow people to sleep and eat, and the day after they could continue their journey.
The refurbishment of this house was completed 2 years ago, respecting the traditions and spirit of the period in which it was built.
All the apartment have one or two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, one or two bathrooms with shower, wifi and panoramic views of the surrounding hills.
The location offers an oasis to relax in the beautiful countryside of Florence and it's only 17 km from the historic centre of the city.
There is a panoramic swimming pool from which you can admire a breathtaking landscape that is located next to the Villa Casabella.

It's important to have a dream...put all the energy and passion to achieve it
My parents bought "Casa Bella" in 1978 because is an ancient villa that has a story.
In the sixteenth century it was used by the monks of the monastery of "Montesenario" as home to sleep after a day's walk coming from Florence.
In 1796 it was refurbish and took its present form.
I put my energy and passion in the refurbishment of this house with special attention, respecting the traditions and spirit of the period in which it was built, using original materials, "terracotta", stone walls and ceilings with original wooden beams.
My dream is to give the possibility to the people to enjoy this wonderful paradise.
