The Giaggiolo estate consists of a cluster of houses, once an ancient Tuscan hamlet, completely restored to now form apartments and two independent cottages, some of which are holiday rentals, others housing local residents. The estate which dates back to the 1600's has ample grounds and mature gardens as well as lovely views around every corner. Giaggiolo F Cottage, on the edge of the hamlet, is on two levels and is very well appointed and nicely furnished yet retains original characteristics of beamed ceiling and exposed stone walls.
