A rare opportunity to buy a fabulous unique historic 10th century fortress situated in the picturesque hills of Siena with breathtaking views across the rolling hills and the picturesque towers of San Gimignano.

There are no words to describe the magical atmosphere and the beauty of this ancient historic fortress, it seems that this property, mentioned in many history books, dating back to 10th century, could be much older and have Etruscan origins.

The fortress stands on a lovely panoramic hill crossed by the old Francigena road. During the Renaissance, its owner, one of the most beautiful minds of his time, decided to start here a centre for Humanist Studies creating a library for public use which attracted the most famous and intelligent personalities of the era including Lorenzo de Medici, the Dukes of Ferrara and Urbino, Cardinal Alexander Farnese and Pope Giulio II.

Thanks to its role the property became one of the most popular literary districts in all Europe and nowadays is mentioned in many Italian literary books.

Nowadays, thanks to a careful renovation carried out by its present owners who maintained most of the property original architectural features, the villa is an exquisite example of a perfectly recreated ancient dwelling provided with modern comforts.

Internally it provides elegant and luxury accommodation arranged on three levels comprising five double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and living area situated on top floor within the medieval tower, a large reception room with ancient open fireplace, a living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom, a studio-office room and a laundry/utility room on the lower level.

Outside are wonderful landscaped gardens with pergola and flowers, lavender and rosemary which spread their aroma all around. There is a stone-built pizza oven and swimming pool which faces the Tuscan countryside and the village of San Gimignano.
