Villa Tenuta Lonciano dates back to the 13th century and was the farmhouse of the convent Reverend Sisters of San Salvi, known as the "Nuns of the Angels".
This converted Monastery, lovingly restored, is now a beautiful and comfortable country home with a welcoming interior and with all modern conveniences. Located in peaceful and tranquil surroundings, the place has kept intact an intimate and mystical atmosphere, even after centuries and the taste for simple and genuine things such as the scent of flowers, the song of birds and the flavour of bread with oil.
The Tenuta, surrounded by about 80,000 square meters, at a height of approx. 450 m on the slopes of Mount Morello, overlooks luscious rolling hills, woodland, terraced gardens, fruit orchards, cypresses, and olive trees adding to the charm of this property.
Tenuta Lonciano, situated off the public road, in absolute tranquillity within Monte Morello´s Nature Reserve, enjoys a sunny position and magnificent views over the valley, especially at sunset. Monte Morello´s beautiful hiking trails and the healthiness of the hilly climate invite you to relax and explore the forest with lovely walks.
The outstanding panoramic swimming pool, the jacuzzi and various outdoor spaces, specially set up for your comfort and enjoyment, are the setting for this small paradise.
Villa Tenuta Lonciano is located 10 – 14 km from Florence city centre. You are such close to one of the most beautiful and memorable art cities in the world.
