HISTORY OF THE PROPERTY



The property, located not far from San Gimignano, is first mentioned in documents dating back to the beginning of the 14th century: the history of the complex is linked to the nearby villa, once property of a noble Tuscan family. The building at the heart of the property was originally built as a watchtower.

The whole podere was bought by another rich Florentine family in 1410 and in their hands remained until a series of bad financial decisions forced the family to alienate a good part of their belongings to the Archbishop of Pisa.

In 1867, the wedding of one of the archbishop’s heir with a member of the Savoy family brought the villa into the hands of the royal family. Savoy kept possession of the villa until 1946 (when they were exiled after the results of the Italian Referendum) and after that the building ended up in the hands of a countess.

At the end of the 1990s the villa, after decades of neglect, was bought by current owners who, with a carefully-carried-out renovation, brought the buildings back to their original glory.



EXTERNAL AREA



The estate covers approximately 4.5 hectares, partially covered by woodland while the remaining surface is divided among arable and grazing land. An olive grove (approx. 150 trees) allows producing an excellent olive oil which is then used in the preparation of meals for the guests.

Not far from the complex is located the 16 x 8 m swimming pool, paved in mosaic tiles and surrounded by a solarium in Izzalini stone (often called Pietra di Todi) reserved for the guests of the property.

The garden hosts an ample pergola which is used during summer for al fresco dinners, as an alternative to the indoor restaurant.



USE AND POTENTIAL USES



The property has been finely renovated by the current owners is currently run as an accommodation business thanks to the many bedrooms available and the restaurant. The proximity to the most interesting centers of Tuscany is another strong point of a property which allows easily reaching cities like Florence, Siena, Lucca and Pisa in no more than a hour and a half of travel.
