The Castello di Santa Maria Novella is surrounded by its own vineyards in the heart of the Chianti region, known as the Chianti Colli Fiorentini. The property grounds are a mix of vineyards, olive groves, fruit tree orchards, meadows and woods. Just outside the walls, there is a Romanesque-style church, also property of the castle.
Atop the rolling hillsides are panoramic views of the Tuscan countryside including the famed towers of San Gimignano. The castle is next to the small village of Fiano, 35 km south of Florence and 38 km north of Siena.
The area offers relaxation and tranquillity, yet it is close to many places of interest, including Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa and more.
