An ex-monastery of the Benedictine Olivetani monks situated in the hills of Settingnano (a small village overlooking Florence).
The area has always been considered an ideal location for repose and has been home to elegant villas and the hunting reserves of rich Florentine merchants. The entire monastic complex combines the charm of the old with the convenience of the new, offering an original synthesis of tradition and function. Even the walls of the structure itself seem to allude to the cultural and educational goals of this center for Italian language and culture.
Lodging is provided in the same structure as that in which the students will attend lessons.
All rooms have an individual style with either a view of Florence or of the vast garden of the ex-monastery, rich with cypress, fir, olive, fig, and cherry trees.
Every room, which is decorated in a simple and modern fashion, has its own private bath and is equipped with standard facilities such as a desk, wardrobe, television, bed, linens, and bath towels.
