Nearly every room boasts views of the mountain atop which the ruins of Montegrossi Castle are perched. Torre di Cancelli was, in fact, built to protect the highly coveted castle. A mild hike up the hill will take you inside this historic monument.

About the neighbourhood
The Badia Coltibuono Monestary and Restaurant are less than 1.5km away. Their wines are fantastic and we highly recommend them.
To the south of the Torre di Cancelli on the hill, are the ancient ruins of Castello Montegrossi. The Torre used to be it's outlook tower. The Castello Montegrossi was sacked by the Florentine in the 14th century.
There is a hiking trail which will lead you to the ruins. It's not as long as it looks, go to the back of the hill, past the old mineral mines to access.
Radda in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti are the closest 'large' towns with the classic Italian charms. Most of the restaurants are excellent. We like fine dining at the Badia and more casual dining at Bottega da Giovannino in Radda.
