The present villa dates back to the 15th century but has its origins in medieval times when it belonged to a Guelph family. In 1560 it was purchased by the Gianfigliazzi family.
In the 18th century it housed the precious Vassari archives and subsequently a collection of Napoleonic memorabilia when it was owned by a relative of the Emperor.
The property has been restored to conserve the charm and atmosphere of a large, symmetrical villa and below the villa are some of the most impressive cellars in Tuscany.
There is AC/CH throughout the villa which sits over three floors and has a tower and large basements.
The old floors have been restored and replaced, the original 18th century frescos remain and the bathrooms are of a variety of marble tiling.
One can wander from room to room in a timeless trance and enjoy internal courtyards, a winter garden and a wonderful Tuscan kitchen along with many bedrooms and bathrooms providing ample accommodation for either a Boutique Hotel or a large family home with many guest rooms and entertaining ideas.
The cellars could create wonderful spaces for art, vintage cars, music or wine collections!
One could have a Spa, an indoor pool and any number of amazing rooms to enjoy with ceilings reaching 15 mts in height. There is a lift and ca. 20 bedrooms and 23 bathrooms in the main villa.
In the annexe there are 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and a gorgeous panoramic roof terrace of ca. 150 sq m.
The land consists of ca. 7.2 Ha of formal gardens around the villa with many types of roses and there are beautiful olive groves, 3 parking areas and three access roads to the property.
Permission was granted for a swimming pool and tennis court which could be renewed. There is also a well and water storage tank.
