The square House opens onto a paved town from where the original stone stairs that lead to the rooms on the first floor. On the ground floor of an old wine cellar with a cross Vault has been transformed into a splendid kitchen, where the protagonist is a beautiful sink carved from a single piece of marble. Outside the square, but it approached on one side, a great Hall that once housed the oxen wagons, carefully restored, overlooks the ancient farmyard of the farm. Here, in the Chianti style with a large fireplace and wooden beams you can spend some time relaxing in an armchair or at table or work on your computer thanks to the Wi-Fi . Brought to life between the 2010 and 2012 from Paul and Daniela Ignesti, thanks to a careful restoration, today it is an accommodation that offers guests an antique atmosphere enriched by contemporary comforts that can make a truly unforgettable stay.
