Locanda La Mandragola is located at the borders of the “Rocca di Montestaffoli” Park (ancient fortress of 1353), in a quiet position, few steps from the lively main squares of the town. Locanda La Mandragola is an ancient villa, totally and faithfully renewed, offering its guest eight rooms with bathroom and all comforts, as well as buffet breakfast.
Locanda La Mandragola has a wide garden with English lawn, two central palms of the last century, all surrounded by laurels, arbutuses and brooms, coloured by antique roses and perfumed by jasmine flowers. In the equipped garden guests can enjoy their time, relaxing or sunbathing, with view over the towers.
The peculiarity of the inn is its roof tower-terrace, overlooking the landscape between the Val d’Elsa valley and the Florentine hills. There you can enjoy the dawn or the sunset, as well as the night panorama, when the moon rises among the towers and lights up the ancient stones of the town.
The property is located in a dominant and sunny position at the north end of the Park La Rocca di Montestaffoli, the fourteenth-century fortress that overlooks the whole town. La Mandragola is located just 100m away from the main squares in a quiet street parallel to the main street Via San Matteo.
