A stay here gives guests the chance to spend a few days or weeks in a wonderfully historic property, renowned among historians all over the world.

On the ground floor there is an elegant drawing room, formerly a ballroom, whose vaulted ceiling and walls are covered with incredible 'trompe l'oeuil' paintings of exotic birds, flowers and plants, whilst the walls are wood panelled. The furniture ranges from antique (18th century) to 20th century. Two large French doors open into the parkland, an open space to sit and relax under the Tuscan sun.

The ground floor also comprises a junior suite for two people with large windows overlooking the park and a terracotta arch housing a library. Nearby is a bathroom with hand-made tiles from Amalfi. On this same level is a majestic dining hall, boasting what is said to be the largest sit-in fireplace in Tuscany. The dining tables seat up to 20 people, and the impression is one of dining in a large medieval banqueting hall. Other special features of this dining hall are a 16th century Siennese marble sink, original antique tiled floors and antique furniture. Beyond the dining hall is a small kitchen with modern equipment and professional cooking facilities, sufficient for 20 people or more. A beautiful internal courtyard is accessed from outside the dining hall. This courtyard has its own well and a covered area or loggia, and can be used for outdoor dining in fine weather. Outside, there is also a fantastic swimming pool (14 x 7 metres).

A gallery of paintings leads to an old stairway going up to the first floor. There are five bedrooms located on this floor, all characterized by tall windows, high ceilings and plenty of light. With views of Siena in the distance, and their antique furniture, all the bedrooms have unique features. The first one is famous for its frescoes representing the "Cantico delle Creature" di San Francesco, painted by Dario Neri. This double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower. Further along the gallery, the master bedroom boasts a magnificent Murano glass chandelier, frescoes of angels on the ceiling and a magnificent 17th century Siennese painting. Its en-suite bathroom has a bathtub. A third bedroom, called Cor-sanum, has three single four-poster beds, and an en-suite bathroom with shower. The fourth bedroom has two single beds and an open free-standing antique bathtub and sink inside the room. The final bedroom on this floor has a double bed, with a television and a small kitchenette. A bathroom with shower is shared between these last two rooms.

On the second floor are a further four bedrooms, set in a more rustic ambience than the floor below. A double bedroom with its terra cotta floors and wooden beamed ceilings has spectacular views of distant Siena. Its bathroom with shower is on the other side of the corridor. The next bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and a new en-suite bathroom with shower. A third bedroom has two twin beds and an en-suite bathroom with shower. A fully-equipped and colourful kitchen with washing machine separates the third and fourth bedrooms. This fourth bedroom has a charming low-beamed ceiling, two twin beds, television and en-suite bathroom with shower and tub, featuring painted 'trompe l'oeuil' tiles.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The classic landscapes of Tuscany have long held an irresistable attraction for holidaymakers. Made famous by the Renaissance artists, the landscape provides a stunning backdrop to your stay. Visitors are spoilt for choice in terms of Tuscany tourist attractions to visit and Tuscany sights to see, whether it's the Duomo and Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the leaning tower in Pisa or the Campo in Siena. Tuscany even offers some great seaside resorts and is also wonderful walking country too.
Undoubtedly the best known and most visited city in Tuscany is Florence. With its stunning architecture and incredible sights, and a host of Florence attractions, from the Duomo to the Uffizi, and from the Palazzo Pitti to the Ponte Vecchio, it's a city full of wonderful art and architecture and beautiful gardens. You must make a point of visiting Siena during your stay too. The cityscape is easily one of the most recognisable Tuscany sights, with it's black and white striped Duomo and huge piazza, home to the famous Siena Palio. The next city on your list of places to visit in Tuscany is Pisa. The main Tuscany tourist attractions in Pisa are, of course, well known. The leaning tower of Pisa is known world wide but is just one of the attractions to be enjoyed in the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles), the others being the Duomo, Baptistery and Camposanto. Head out a short way from this main tourist area and you'll find a much different city. Near to Pisa is Lucca, smaller in size than the other Tuscan cities, but one of the richest. Surrounded by the old city walls, the city has a much more intimate feel and is a lovely place to spend an afternoon, exploring it's museums, churches or streets. It's well worth a visit. Smaller in scale again is San Gimignano, one of Tuscany's most famous villages. It's stunning skyline of towers captures the very essence of what people think about when they think of Tuscany. It does get extremely busy as it is popular with tourists but it's a must-see destination for any Tuscan holiday. Make a point of visiting the interior of the Collegiata which is stunning, filled with beautiful frescoes. Also worth seeing are Museo Civico and Pinacoteca. And finally build up an appetite by climbing the Torre Grossa, the only one of the towers you're able to go up. You'll be richly rewarded at the top by stunning views of the Val d'Elsa. Finally, furthest south on your tour of Tuscany is the city of Arezzo and town of Cortona. Again, a visit to Tuscany wouldn't be complete without a trip to both places. Of course, the landscape surrounding all these places is stunning. Visitors can gain immense enjoyment simply from driving across it's rural hills and enjoying the Tuscany sights en route. And don't forget as well that the region is bordered by the sea. Taking a trip to the coast is certainly a fun day trip if you want to escape the heat inland during the peak Summer months. And there is plenty to keep the children entertained too, whether it's a waterpark, aquarium or theme park. Finally, for golfers, if playing amid olive groves and vineyard covered hills is your idea of the perfect round of golf, then Tuscany is certainly an ideal destination! Please ask for more information on what to see and do in the area.
