THIS ACCOMMODATION HAS BEEN PRE-BOOKED FOR THE WEDDING PARTY AND CLOSE FAMILY MEMBERS.
The main homestead consists of five rooms, the names of which are dedicated to the grandparents and an aunt: Renato, Teresa, Francesca, Settimio and Sibilla.
All varying in size, each room has a different colour scheme and furnishings in typical Tuscan style, making them elegant and homely at the same time. All the rooms have an enchanting view of San Gimignano and the surrounding hills, allowing you to constantly savour to the full the beauty and peace of this land.
The apartments have been created from the main homestead and in the annexed farm buildings that surround it to form a tiny hamlet. Due to their different origins, each apartment has a different shape and position.
Just like the rooms, the apartments have also been renovated and furnished in Tuscan style with typical colours and skilfully restored furniture. Elegantly decorated and fitted out with everything you could possibly need during your stay, our apartments are welcoming and have an authentic atmosphere. Each one faces onto a portion of the garden or has a terrace in order to offer guests an area of intimate peace and quiet in the open air.
