Torre Santa Flora Hotel & Restaurant (Arezzo)
Eastern Tuscany, Arezzo, and Cortona, Italy
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. Above all, Torre Santa Flora estate is more than a place to stay; it's a place to live.
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 four old, loft-style suites overlooking the waters and the hills of the Casentino valley.
Its Villa - once a place of rest and refreshment for knights and travelers - continues its tradition of hospitality offering 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 Terrace faces the tower, the garden and the swimming pool, and welcomes guests with delicious dishes in a romantic atmosphere.
