“Tower” Rooms – Rooms in the Tower

In the Tower, which is the main building of “Montagna Verde Agriturismo”, we have had double and family (quadruple) bedrooms on the first floor, since 1995 . These are accessed by means of a wide staircase made of sandstone and comprise:

  • The “Forno” (Oven) room – double room
    So named for the presence of the old stone oven which formed part of the kitchen of the monastery.
  • The “Prete” (Priest) room – family (quadruple) room
    So called because it was originally the room the last priest remaining in the monastery lived in. His name was Don Candido Vasini and he lived in the monastery until 1956.
  • The “Perpetua” room – double room
    This room is named after the community’s maid as it was her room.
  • The “Legno Grande” room (Big Wood) – double room
    This room got its name because of the big chestnut beams in the ceiling and the stone wall.

The two rooms “Perpetua” and “Legno Grande” can be combined, if necessary, into one large family room with a common entrance, having two separate sleeping areas and two bathrooms, ideal for families with children.

On the ground floor we have two dining rooms, made from the old stables and hay barn. The fireplace is always lit during the winter, to ensure warm moments of conviviality. This is where meals are served – breakfast, lunch and dinner.
