This ancient Certosa dates back to 1343 with the traditional appearance of a Carthusian monastery including cloisters, beautiful frescos, and with a private chapel recognized as a miniature version of the Sistine Chapel.
Chianti Charterhouse enjoys a special location a few kilometers from Siena, set on a hill looking over the city. This is a magical part of Tuscany, with plenty to delight visitors - wonderful scenery, excellent food, and wine to sample, historic hill towns to explore.
The main villa has superior rooms and junior suites on the upper level.
