On the ground floor there are two storage rooms (accessible through archways) and a small garage. On the first floor there is another accommodation fort the staff made up of three bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room with kitchenette.
Last, there is a small depot on a single floor with a metal awning.

State and finishes


The property is in excellent conditions and with every renovation the original rusticity of the complex has been preserved. The buildings, once intended as accommodations for the workers of the property, are made up of stone on the outside, while the internal walls have been almost completely plastered, leaving just some bits of visible stone. Roofs are sustained by beautiful wooden beams and floors are covered in terracotta tiles while furniture, realized in woods and marble, dates often back to the 18th and 19th century.


External area


The complex is fitted with 4 swimming pools, two of which private and reserved for the two villas, the others shared by other tenants.

The property is surrounded by over 238 hectares (588 acres) of land, divided as follows:
- 90 hectares (223 acres) of agricultural land (9% unused)
- 79 hectares (195 acres) of woodland – mixed (84%), coppice (15%), high (1%)
- 36 hectares (89 acres) of vineyard
- 18 hectares (44 acres) of olive grove (with a total of ~2300 trees)
- 15 hectares (37 acres) of grazing land
The coppice section of the woodland (~12 ha) is, as of now, rented out (with a logging right of 2 ha per year for 5 years) for a yearly income of € 7,000.00. The agricultural land (85 ha) is rented out as well for yearly income of € 7,000.00.

For irrigation of garden areas (or, in case of emergency, of agricultural land), the property is fitted with rain-water basins.

The property land is a wildlife reserve for private use. Possession of rifles is limited to 1 gun every 10 hectares of land.

Talking about agricultural land (roughly 90 ha), it is possible to convert these areas to vineyard, either in order to introduce a crop rotation with the other vineyards existing or to expand the already existing cultivation.
Not far from the two villas there is a small, and most importantly private, lake which is suitable for fishing.


Use and potential uses


The complex, other than being easily reached, offers a nice panoramic view over the Tuscan countryside and the medieval town of San Gimignano and it is ideal as a tourist-hosting activity. The apartments (and the two villas in particular) grant a high level of privacy.
The Complex N°6 is nowadays an agricultural farmstead, but its nice conditions would allow an extremely easy conversion into an additional hosting section with little or none restoration necessary. This could provide an increment in the number of guests the structure could host.
The surrounding land, thanks to great vineyards and olive groves, allows the production of prestigious wines and extra-virgin olive oil and for those who love hunting, the wildlife reserve can be a real heaven.
