The Crete Senesi winery takes its name from the picturesque and attractive place in which it is situated, surrounded by rolling hills for which this landscape is widely believed to be the most beautiful in Tuscany.
The countryside, so beautiful that it has been immortalised by photographers from around the world, is also interesting from a historical point of view due to its towers, castles, abbeys and little hamlets.
The three groups of buildings are divided as follows: In the ancient rural hamlet, there is the main villa, which has historic origins as the seat of a noble family, and a place of prayer for a saint who was part of that family.
It comprises three floors plus an attic, for a total surface area of 1.095 m2 and is currently being used as the owners residence, where they have lived since the 1500s. The former olive grove, conservatory and other areas used for storage are adjacent to the villa.
A building with six separate apartments of which four are used for agritourism, a hospitality area with restaurant and professional kitchen, the cellar for wine making and many areas for storage, stables, storing equipment, and silos.
The chapel, which is still consecrated. The former parish church with rectory. Various annexes in need of restoration, comprising the former pigsties, barns, sheep pens and storehouses.
The farm situated on the hill opposite the hamlet, comprises a collection of buildings in need of restoration, which were once used by the farm workers: the cheese factory, the butcher, the dining hall, an apartment for family members, the office and the cellar for maturing salami.
The building, now completely in ruins, had a total surface area of around 600 cubic metres, and permission has been obtained to rebuild it for residential use, to restore the building volume in a different and higher up location than its current one.
The three groups of buildings are also for sale separately at the following prices:
The hamlet, including almost all of the land (vineyard, olive grove, woodland and fields) 11.500.000.
The farm, 1.350.000 plus subsequent land to be purchased
The old furnace, to be fully restored, with 7.5 ha of surrounding land 260.000.
The buildings are surrounded by 300 ha of land of which 16 ha is DOC vineyard, planted 10 years ago; 45 ha is woodland; 4.300 m2 is olive grove; 235 ha is fertile fields.
Around the main villa there is the garden with a shady little wood, through which there is a little hill where the swimming pool is situated.
The property is located in the province of Siena, which is 41 km away, and around 5 km from the nearest populated area, an old medieval hamlet between Val di Asso and Val di Chiana where it is possible to buy daily necessities.
The location is also perfect and central in relation to the other important towns in Tuscany: San Giovanni di Asso (19 km) and Pienza (23 km) are only 20 minutes away, while Montepulciano (26 km), San Quirico di Orcia (29 km) and Montalcino (30 km) are a little over half an hour by car.
Florence is 110 km away (an hour and a half by car) and its airport is 125 km away, while Perugia airport is 86 km away (an hour and 15 minutes by car). The airports at Rome Ciampino and Rome Fiumicino are 230 km and 213 km away respectively.
