- Ground floor: entrance hall with medieval stone flooring, ample vaulted living/dining room with fireplace and six French windows leading to the garden, state-of-the-art kitchen with grilling area and double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. A travertine staircase or a wrought-iron winding staircase leads to the upper floor;

The guesthouse (95 sqm 1,022 sqft) is laid out on a single floor and includes living room with dining area, kitchen, loggia with terrace, double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (shower only) and twin bedroom with sofa-bed and en-suite bathroom (shower only).
A private chapel (65 sqm 699 sqft) is set amidst rose garden and trees, and is perfect for celebrating weddings.
STATE AND FINISHES
The farmhouse was built almost a thousand years ago and was used as a posthouse along the Via Francigena, a pilgrimage road leading to Rome from Northern Europe.
The property has been finely and carefully restored to preserve intact its typical traits: stone walls on the outside, a marble-paved swimming pool, beautifully rib-vaulted ceilings in the entrance, original fireplaces, original stone paving, terracotta paving, masonry arches and decorations and the always present wooden beams supporting the ceilings. Bathrooms are paved in travertine tiles.
The farmhouse comes with 12 hectares (29.6 acres) of land, including olive grove and vineyard. The 15 x 7 m swimming pool is surrounded by a nice rose garden designed by Peter Curzon.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The farmhouse, thanks to its ample size and a total of 8 bedrooms, could easily be used as either a private residence fitted with all the modern comforts or an accommodation business. The latter idea is also made possible by the vicinity of the property to many cities of Tuscany, among which Florence and Siena.
