Certosa di Pontignano, b&b in Chianti, Siena, Toscana

The great cloister

This cloister boasts a huge lawn with a 14th century stone well in the center, from which starts four stone paths that connect it with the aisles, ideally dividing the green space into four parts.

Fully lit and large enough to accommodate hundreds of people, is the perfect place for great summer events. In addition, its arcades are also suitable for dinners for over 400 guests.

The great cloister, with its two independent entrances, can be completely isolated from the rest of the Certosa.

Special feature of the great cloister is the corner of ancient oven of the Certosa, a rustic environment where stands an old furnace ideal for cooking wide preparations or large batches of bread and pizzas. In addition, the space of the oven is connected to the outside with a dedicated gate that opens onto a small square, ideal for hosting mobile kitchens of catering.

This cloister is completed by the old monks' cells, 13 beautiful large size apartments on two levels, each with a splendid view of Siena and a private garden.
