Castello del monsignore, Tuscany

 

In the heart of Mugello near Florence, where Giotto and the De Medici family were born, is Castello del Monsignore, a fabulous location ideal for exclusive use, memorable weddings, family reunions and any kind of event and meeting.

 

Immersed in a huge, age-old parkland this property combines Renaissance elements with refined furnishings, fine upholstery and the light colours of spacious marble bathrooms, spacious lounges and magnificent stylish suites. Among other things, the estate also includes a little Chapel, an ancient wine cellar which is ideal for romantic dinners, a natural truffle field, a charming orangery, an organic garden and an amazing, heated, stone pool, sauna and gym.

 

You can experience a true scent of Florentine history which was the birthplace and home of Monsignor della Casa, the author of “Galateo” (book of etiquette) the most important treaty of good manners used by European important people and noble families.

 

At guests’ disposal also the nearby sister property Monsignor della Casa Country Resort & Spa with its rural chic apartments, villas with private pools, typical restaurant, tennis court, swimming pools, wellness centre and all kinds of hotel services.

 

For a holiday that’s far removed from daily life, stay at the Castello del Monsignore - a place that’s steeped in history and heritage. This was the home of Giovanni della Casa, born in 1503 to Lisabetta Tornabuoni, who was a cousin of Lorenzo the Magnificent. And this was where the young Monsignor Giovanni della Casa was brought up so well: as he wrote about in his most famous work, "Galateo", which became a manual of good behaviour for European nobility.

Private Helipad, natural truffle field, “Banquet under the giant, umbrella-shaped tree”, huge traditional Tuscan kitchen with big fireplace, ancient Chinese room, consecrated Chapel
