San Martino is an ancient farm complex, originally built around 1400 and enlarged at the end of the 1700s and the beginning of the 1800s. It is located on the main street of Montisi, and the main courtyard is accessed through an impressive archway with solid wooden gates.
Up to 1992 various farming families lived here; they used to breed cattle and poultry and worked in the surrounding fields where wheat, barley and corn were planted. Nowadays farming Has Been greatly reduced and at present is concentrated on the production of wine and olive oil. The entire farmhouse and its associated farm buildings are now occupied by its owners, who have carefully restored parts of the complex to create two delightful and original apartments.
From the courtyard and lawn at the rear of the house you can enjoy the view of an enchanting and relaxing landscape, made up of woods, lines of cypresses, vineyards and olive groves. It is a peaceful hideaway where the only sound comes from the birds' singing and the rustling of the leaves.
Thanks to its position in the center of the village, there is easy access to basic amenities such as a post office, bank with ATM, grocery store, a bar (with a wonderful cappuccino!), Bakery and restaurants.
