Description

Medieval portion of Buonamici villa. In antiquity it was the main entrance. Place of relaxation and charm near Florence.

Historic mansion overlooking the ancient threshing floor of Villa Buonamici. It was built in the thirteenth century as a fortress, being part of the towers to protect the valley and still it retains the proud look of the tower. In the Renaissance it was transformed into comfortable residences of the noble family Buonamici. The family was part Giovanfrancesco Buonamici, ambassador in Madrid and friend of Galileo Galilei who stayed here as a guest. At the entrance of the house, on the portal stone is carved the coat of arms of the noble family. The house is located in the village of Savignano nestling on the slopes of the Protected Area of the Calvana mountains. It is placed exactly on the border between the woods and olive groves that slope up to the valley floor, just above the stream that flows slowly through the village and up to the small Romanesque church.
