Tuscany still has its undiscovered parts, and the Monsignor della Casa Country Resort, located some 30km northeast of Florence, is certainly in one them. Set within the former country estate of Monsignor della Casa, secretary of state of the Vatican in the 16th century and author of the Galeteo, the famous book on “good manners”, the place extends for over two hundred hectares totally fenced in to ensure its guests peace and quite.
The apartments are arranged on two floors assuring comfort and functionality. Modern amenities and traditional values go side by side. The large, bright rooms are furnished in the most authentic Tuscan style to recreate a cosy and relaxing atmosphere.
Trussed ceilings, "cotto" floors, fireplaces, wrought-iron canopied beds, tasteful upholstery and all the accessories were carefully selected to preserve the charm of a country home. Each apartment has its own entrance, private space and a view that is a constant source of pleasure the ideal components for a timeless vacation.
This is the land of the Medicis, budding writers and artists looking to get away from it all will surely find inspiration from the area and its heritage.
