Driving out a few kilometers from the city into the green and tranquillity of the Florentine hills, Antonella, our Cesarina, welcomes you to her house: a former monastery from the 13th century.

Over the years, the home has also been a painter's studio and still today it is an artist's residence, where you can indulge in the tastes of true Tuscan cuisine.

Antonella is a local to Florence who loves to cook for her profession and passion. Antonella enjoys cooking with seasonal, locally grown ingredients to create ethnic and fusion cuisine. Most of all, she loves to share experiences and meet new people, welcoming them into her beautiful home in the Tuscan hills.

Le Cesarine’s hand-selected locations are some of the most beautiful private homes in all of Italy.
