The main section of the villa consists of an 11th century tower to which two sections were later added. When this typical Tuscan dwelling was completely and carefully restored, its original structure was consolidated while retaining as much as possible the original materials and features. The villa is one of the central structures on a working farm of 69 acres which specializes in the production of extra virgin olive oil. Adjacent to the villa is another farmhouse where the owner lives (two people), but the outdoor area of the villa (garden, pergola and pool) are completely private and reserved for the exclusive use of the guests. The expansive views from the villa and its garden include the Castle of Santa Maria Novella and stretch across the rolling countryside as far as the towers of San Gimignano. In the large garden surrounding the villa, there is a private gazebo equipped with a barbecue and dining area and lounge chairs positioned to overlook the valley and San Gimignano. The private pool is 11m x 5m. There is a pool shower and WC provided in the garden under one of the two loggias attached to the villa.
