Casa del Tramonto (House of the Sunset) is situated on a hillside with wonderful views over the Val d'Arno. The building itself is reported to be a monastery originating from the 14th century, and has been restored using the original stone in the typical style of the region. The tiny hamlet, where Casa del Tramonto is located, is just 5 km from the ancient walled town of Civitella in Val di Chiana.
We've created three self -contained apartments from the south west facing portion of the old monastery, each with fantastic views - “Le Stelle”- The Stars, on the top floor, “La Luna” – The Moon on the 1st floor, and “Il Sole” – The Sun on the ground floor. Time and effort have been taken to ensure that the original features in the building have been preserved in the typical Tuscan style. This, combined with contemporary bathroom and kitchen fittings and modern feature lighting, creates a stylish and comfortable environment for relaxation.
