  • Located in the Abbey. In the midst of the many frescoes telling the history of the abbey and having biblical conotations. Worth seeing

  • Although it is privately owned and access is granted through registration. And in astonishment for such great wonder is assured. Cloisters and gardens chase between an endless campaign of delights with gorgeous Siena in the distance.

  • Unfortunately we couldn't visit the Interior of the Church but the cloister is beautiful and the surrounding countryside beautiful. A short walk and you can enjoy a unique view over Siena!

  • This place is awesome! The views are amazing and the back garden is so beautiful! The breakfast was my favorite part, a wide variety to select from; and you can have breakfast at the balcony. You also have access to bicycles, so you can go around to get to know, which is a nice experience ... the only problem is that the bicycles are not well maintained, so only if you are lucky to get a good one is worth it, other wise, avoid it, you will just end up walking and carrying a bicycle with you. Also, the only thing that it was missing for me was a pool! With that weather I just wanted to refresh for a while ... Other than that, it is a great place! They have a beautiful little chapel, which seems to have a lot of history. It seems like the perfect location for a wedding. The GPS does not recognize the place, so when you get to the closest destination that the GPS provides, just keep driving straight and you will find the place.
  • A group of 26 of us visited Certosa di Pontignano at the end of September. The setting is beautiful but the monastery itself is breathtaking, carefully looked after, and a very special place. We were looked after extremely well by everyone we met including the bar and restaurant staff, the receptionist team (special mention to Eleanora who was fantastic with the communications and arrangements for our trip) and the tech guy who made sure that our IT could connect with the conferencing facilities. The food was terrific. Siena is only a E20 taxi ride away, and there are two lovely restaurants a 25 minute walk away which are good alternatives, as well. We couldn't have asked for a better stay, particularly as we were such a large group. Just stunning.
  • Found this place on the recommendation of a previous host, and it was wonderful. Gorgeous rooms, lush gardens to walk through and enjoy, and excellent food. And talk about local wine- one of the chiantis on the menu comes from a vineyard within sight of the monastery. Great breakfast, and rates very reasonable.
  • Excellent historical site.
  • Classic Toscany Excellence.
