  Property ref. fi29
  The Castle has its origin in the 13th century and was owned by some of the most important tuscan families. Farinata degli Uberti (who is even mentioned in Dante's "Divina Commedia"), his brother Pietro detto Asino (donkey), an officer of Manfred of Hohenstaufen King of Napels, then the Canigiani family, from which came Petrarca's mother, the Giugnis and the counts Capponi.

The big farmhouse beside the castle has been transformed into guests apartments elegantly furnished and with all modern conforts (independent heating and warm water, direct phone, satellite-TV etc.), but keeping the atmosphere of the ancient tuscan country houses. On cooler days you can light the fireplace, read a good book or simply chat drinking a good glass of wine.
  20 minutes from Firenze
  3200 sq.m
  30 ha
  In an adjacent building is a heated swimming pool connected in summertime with an outdoor pool.
It's an ideal place to be on a holiday and to visit Tuscany: Florence is less than half an hour and Siena just a little bit more; San Gimignano twenty minutes, Volterra and Pisa one hour and with fifteen minutes more you reach the sea and the famous sandbeaches of the Versilia.

The connections are excellent (roads, highway, train and plane), but you are in a completely quiet place with one of the most beautiful landscapes of the region. You can walk in the castle's wood or go horseback riding round the corner.
