Description

The prestigious mansion, with a total internal area of 2200 square meters, is an ancient country residence, now used as a luxurious Relais. It comprises the main villa with an ancient medieval tower, an attached but independent annex, a wine cellar, garage, tool shed, and numerous accessory rooms in the basement floors. The Relais features a delightful internal cloister, a bar, a restaurant, and breakfast rooms on the ground floor, along with spacious and elegant common rooms with a fireplace, as well as two additional rooms. The imposing internal staircase or elevator leads to the second floor, which has a terrace overlooking the cloister and a long corridor housing 20 rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room. The independent annex, connected to the main villa, accommodates 4 rooms, including 2 on the ground floor and 2 on the second floor, along with 2 bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen.
The villa is nestled in its own private park of approximately 2 hectares, entirely bordered by an ancient boundary wall. Inside the park, there is a charming Italian garden adorned with a rose garden, a large swimming pool with adjacent lawn areas, a woodland with tall Tuscan cypresses, ancient holm oaks, and an ancient tabernacle. A spacious and convenient parking area is available for guests. The property holds significant value and is in excellent condition. Original and salvaged materials were used in the renovation, preserving valuable architectural elements such as cornices, jambs, columns, and corbels. The property's unique features include stone and original floors, coffered ceilings, and numerous frescoes. The bathrooms have a more modern design, with resin floors and glass showers with travertine marble walls. The former chapel and sacristy have been converted into dining rooms while retaining all their original characteristics. Of particular importance is the tower, currently used as a suite, consisting of a bedroom, a bathroom, and a relaxation room with a small pool featuring a whirlpool and offering a unique 360-degree view of the towers of San Gimignano, the countryside, and the surrounding small villages.

SanGimignano is a picturesque medieval town located in the region of Tuscany, Italy. Known as the "Town of Fine Towers," San Gimignano is famous for its fourteen medieval towers that stand majestically above its skyline. This charming town is an important tourist site, with a rich historical and cultural heritage. The narrow cobbled streets of San Gimignano invite you to explore its well-preserved historic center, a fascinating labyrinth of alleyways, squares, and churches. The city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, recognized as an outstanding example of a medieval settlement. San Gimignano is renowned for its fine wines, particularly the Vernaccia di San Gimignano, a dry white wine that has obtained the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) designation.
