Tuscany - San Gimignano
Property 10557 – San Gimignano - Tuscany
8 Bedrooms – Swimming Pool
For those who desire an exclusive and enchanting holiday and choose to experience Tuscany in an elegant and refined setting. Set on the top of the highest hill between San Gimignano and Volterra, during the Middle Ages it was known as the "Mons Igneus", meaning "the mount of fire", referring to the signal fire that was lit to warn the inhabitants of San Gimignano of an impending assault from the army of Volterra. Up to the end of 1700’s the castle was the object of numerous conquests as a result of its strategic position between San Gimignano, Volterra and Pisa.
Standing proudly within its strong walls beside the dependence, the Villa is surrounded by a large private park: 9 hectares of woods and garden that provide intimacy and absolute privacy for our guests as well as the possibility to enjoy enchanting walks and relaxing afternoons passed outside.
Both the villa and dependence are furnished in sober and tasteful manner, simple and elegant at the same time, and with respect to the rustic Tuscan style. Extreme attention has been paid to the details and the most refined handcraft works utilized, from lime putty plastered and painted walls to luxurious bathrooms and a kitchen entirely in Carrara marble, from warm floors in Impruneta Terracotta to the exclusive terrace in Pienza Travertine from prestigious lacunar ceilings on the ground floor to the charming and traditional wooden beam ceilings on the first floor.
