Villa Il Conventino
Villa Il Conventino. Tucked away on a private hillside, the Villa is found in the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti Classico region, just 18 km from Florence.
The Villa is an ideal setting for a wonderful and relaxing vacation, because the location allows for easy day-trips around Tuscany and offers the privacy to relax among the rolling, forest-covered Tuscan hills. The Villa offers widespread views of the surrounding countryside – abundant olive groves, vineyards, flowering gardens and lush woods.
