The Certosa di Maggiano, built in 1314 with funds donated by Cardinal Ricardo Petroni, was a place designed for meditation and prayer. In 1792 the Tuscan Grand Duke Leopold the Second decided to dispossess the monks of their cells and sell them to private individuals. The property passed from hand to hand until 1969, the year in which Signora Anna Grossi Recordati fell in love with the majestic, ruined complex and decided to restore it to its former glory.
The 17 rooms, corresponding to what were seventeen monastic cells, are situated on three floors. Differing in style, color scheme, view and furnishings, they share a common simple, refined elegance, in addition to all the modern comforts.

Further Informations

The Certosa offers its guests a variety of thoughtfully appointed spaces in which to spend different moments of the day. The "Emperor's Hall" is so-named for the twelve eighteenth-century paintings, portraying the twelve Roman Emperors, which line its walls. The Library, dominated by an antique alder-wood bookcase, also features sofas upholstered with fine silk created by the Antico Setificio Fiorentino.
The grounds are vast and among the olive groves and vineyards one finds our tennis court, helicopter landing, and a heated, open-air pool. Near the pool there is also a small fitness room.
