  • An enchanted place surrounded by nature characterized by a stream flowing into a canyon. The buildings are perfectly integrated in the natural environment. Unfortunately we couldn't visit all the monastic complex. Can be reached by car and on foot.

  • A charming, beautiful and peaceful place! Best to come with a car or its a long but still possible walk.
  • One of the most memorable and peaceful experiences I ever had was spending a solitaire moment at "Le Celle"
  • The pictures are beautiful, yet somehow don't do Le Celle justice. I was a UGA student in Cortona the Summer of 1996. I used to pack a lunch and go to Le Celle to study it was so peaceful and quiet. I guess it is hard to take a picture of serenity and peace.
  • I made of proposal to marry at the place:-)) she said YES
  • What a hidden gem
