Nice apartments situated on an ancient farming estate dating back to 16th century and owned in the past to noble Florentine families (Gherardini and Pitti). This property is situated in panoramic location in the hearth of Tuscany, a short distance away from San Gimignano, Siena and the Chianti region.
The ancient buildings on the estate (a farmhouse, a small hamlet of houses and a barn) have been recently restored and turned into 8 comfortable apartments offering rustic-style interiors. A nice fenced swimming-pool, to be shared among the 8 apartments, is situated just in front of the barn, a few hundred meters away from the main farmhouse and from the hamlet.
Excellent wines are produced on the estate and are available for tasting in the beautiful cellars of the property completely dug out of tuff.
