|This is the story of Santi…
Born at the end of the 1800’s and lived in Moggiona, a tiny mountainvillage in the heart of the Casentino Valley, a few steps from the profound spirituality of the Camaldoli Monastery and only a few kilometers from the hermitage of Saint Francis of Assisi on the harsh rocks of La Verna. Immersed and surrounded by centuries old woods in a beautiful enchanting panoramic position, overlooking the splendid valley of a land in Tuscany where aromas are intense and ancient.
Here where the fresh fragrances and pungent aromas of the Cyprus trees and the warm woody undergrowth meet is where Santi built his small modest barn for his animals which later became his little hut where he worked and enjoyed in the midst of nature With passion and professionalism, this modest retreat has been completely transformed by Alexander into a small welcoming house with all the comforts that modern life requires while respecting all the ecological compliance requirements resulting in a class A+ rating.
A perfect tourist destination for all those who want to spend a quiet relaxing holiday in contact with nature: where the only sounds you will hear are the natural water falls from the mountains and the roars of deer’s in love.
All this is the Rifugio di Santi.
Alessandro and Laura.
Refuge of Santi is environmentally friendly and is positioned in the range of lower energy consumption.
