Siena (Siena) - Ancient Farmhouse in Siena
This completely independent ancient farmhouse is located on a hill outside the walls of Siena. Built on the property of a noble family during the 18th century was used as a farmhouse till the owners decided to partially use it as the personal residence of one of their sons and using the remaining rooms for touristic purposes because of the strategic position and the open view on the city.
Thanks to the careful restoration work finished in 2005 the property is now considered as one of the most charming property of the city. The great hall and the monumental garden dating back to 1853 designed by Architect Agostino fantastici shows the property uniqueness.

The ground floor still offers a dependance with beatiful porch overlooking the pool and the city complete with living room, bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. On the upper floor, a suite room composed of a large bathroom with a jacuzzi and a studio/walk-in-closet.
The area dedicated to the hosting business on the ground floor has a lovely dining room, two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom and an additional bathroom for the guests. On the first floor three light room with en-suite bathrooms, one of which has a sitting area, an utility room and a loft.
