Property type: Apartment     3 guest apt units   Year built: 1300, Renovated: 2005



Farm of 450 ha, half cultivated with cereals, sunflowers, grass and vineyards; the other half composed by forest where is possible to make walks and relax in the swimming pool, enjoying the charming panorama of the Sienese Montagnola.

Few steps from the apartments there is a typical tuscan restaurant where you can taste the traditional local recipes. Many products of the farm are on sale (also the Chianti wine) and many proposals are offered from the Simonelli family, owner of the farm.

It is possible to reserve some special weeks:
- a week of tuscan food and wine
- a week of art
- a week of art and history
- a week walking in the Montagnola Senese

Location & Transportation

Maybe the expression has been used to many times but its still appropriate: Theres no better comparison than calling San Gimignano, the city of hundred towers, the Medieval Manhattan. A kind of fortified village that, to the great joy of the visitors from all over the world, seems to have turned to ice in the 14th century to keep alive the miracle of an urban and architectonical structure that has remained unchanged over the centuries. In the last 25 years luck was on the side of this corner of the Sienese land: By now San Gimignano has surpassed in celebrity many bigger and more important places. Its the home of one of the most famous and antique Tuscan wines, the only white wine which is well known all over the world: the Vernaccia.
Certainly its not enough to mention only the inevitable comparison with Manhattan (by now there are only 18 towers left). The little town and its territory have so much more to offer. The Elsa valley, antique and very civilized land, cradle of the trade routes in this region and cradle of learning and art from the time of the High Middle Ages, rich in famous monuments, beautiful little towns and breathtaking panoramas. Lets mention just some of them: Colle di Val dElsa, the city of crystal, Casole, Monteriggioni with its intact city walls that have been celebrated even in Dantes Divine Comedy, Poggibonsi and its fortress of Poggio Imperiale, an uncountable number of Romanesque parish churches (like the one of Cellole or the extraordinary Badia a Isola), oratories, monasteries, castles and villages. All these sights are not only relics of a glorious past, but they are still a symbol of the territorys richness which still lasts thanks to the industriousness of its people and a dense network of trades that has its origins in medieval times, when the Via Francigena ran through the Elsa valley, the road which connected the papal town of Rome with Northern Europe between the 9th and the 15th century with a steady stream of warriors, pilgrims, saints and emperors. Today we can still find some traces of this extraordinary road which explain why in the course of the centuries villages, castles, bridges and pilgrims hospitals have been built just where they are and not anywhere else.

  DirectionsExit at Monteriggioni from the Siena-Firenze motorway and follow for Colle Val dElsa. Turn right in the direction of Badia a Isola and continue straight on for 5-6 km until you find, on your left, the sign for Scorgiano. Take this road and continue on for tenuta di Scorgiano.
