Built in the 13th/14th century in a fortified position, elements of which have come to light, such as the colonnade surrounding the courtyard and the walls of the tower structure, elements that have made possible a particularly refined restoration and the creation of environments of charm. Even the terracotta floor is specially manufactured with a mixture of black kaolin to get the gray-brown colour to harmonize with the walls made of local stone.

The villa is entirely equipped with ecological, sustainable energy sources, as solar cells for electricity and geothermic system for heating and refreshment of air. The separate "Fitness House" with hydromassage, sauna, equipment for gym and bar and for its use will be exclusive for the first clients who will reserve it for an extra cost.

In the garden you find a gazebo organized for dining al fresco or just relaxing, the elegant private swimming pool (6m x 12m) and thr area around the villa is arranged as a country garden, including centuries old olive trees; a gazebo placed between the two villas suitable for rest, reading etc.

    We searched through approximately 40 houses before deciding on staying here and we are so glad we did. We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday with four families including 10 children (all under 9 years old) for one week in early July. Everyone was very happy with the accommodations and we all had plenty of room. Every bedroom is lovely and includes a private bathroom (even better than the photos). The pool is gorgeous and suited our big group perfectly. The dining room can seat more than 20 people and the beautiful outdoor terrace can seat about 16. The kitchen is modern and convenient to the terrace for outdoor dining. Additional space includes a billiards room, quiet room with round table that could be used for those who need to work remotely or big card games, sitting room with TV, den with TV, and breakfast room off the kitchen that seats 10+. One of the families in our group with four young children (including a baby) were very comfortable in the annex on the property which is also beautiful and spacious (the managers were very accommodating in bringing in a cot and crib to the annex). The villa's proximity to Firenze is perfect, allowing short visits to the city as well as easy exploration of Toscana's gorgeous countryside. We all travelled into Firenze multiple times, we did short trips to areas like San Gimignano and Fiesole, and we did a full day of wine touring in Montalcino and Montepulciano. The villa's location is absolutely perfect for a group that wants to see and do a lot. It is also ideal for relaxing days by the pool, enjoying a long lunch on the terrace and afternoon siesta. We dream of returning one day soon!

    Everything about our stay at the villa was amazing. We were a big group with kids but there was plenty room, food and wine. Located about 30minutes from Florence, an hour from San Gimignano and less than two hours from Pisa. The setting for the villa on a hill top in San Donato, especially the view from the pool, was perfect. The options the villa offers just for eating ranged from outside, relaxed near the kitchen to formal sit down. The staff from the kitchen to the cleaning crew were terrific; friendly and informative.
