Maurizio, an Italian architect, with Christina, an American citizen from Hawaii, has restored from 2008 to 2015 all the buildings and Casignano property in accordance with the strictest principles of philological restoration. They are characterized by love of nature, art, good food made with their organic products and their animals. In fact, they raise equine species threatened by extinction in perfect freedom: mousey donkeys from the Amiata, a Monterufoli filly and a TPR mare with which they make great excursions in the woods.
In 2008, they opened the BB Casignano, Platinum level ECOLEADER, with the main purpose of exchanging ideas and experiences with all citizens of the world, allowing them to experience this uncontaminated place with beautiful landscapes. And so it has been, to the greatest satisfaction of all: so much so it has been ranked first for many years among all accommodation in Bagno a Ripoli on Tripadvisor and Booking.com
The Marquises Rinuccini of Florence built the Casignano complex in 1710, consisting of a beautiful farmhouse and a barn refined by almond tiles. Even if it is only 11 km from the center of Florence it remains immersed in an unspoilt corner of the Chianti hills surrounding Florence.
