This 15th-century monastery with original frescoes and tiered gardens "celebrates its past with true style and authenticity." Rooms overlook the Arno Valley and Florence—the city is a free 15-minute shuttle ride away. The Limonaia, a former orangerie, is now a high-ceilinged suite. The open-air Loggia's rustic delights include homemade pasta with duck ragout and ewe's milk cheese.
