Full description:

Fortezza dei Templari dating from the 10 century and situated on the antique Via Francigena and rolling hillsides of the Tuscan countryside between Florence and Siena, is part of one of the most important historical sites in the region, both for cultural and historical value.
Only 5km from the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, it offers splendid views of the ancient towers and the surrounding lands.

Fortezza dei Templari has been carefully renovated after nine years of attentive work which respected the original beauty and characteristics of the property, utilizing only original antique material whenever possible, incorporating it with the highest quality products available. It is currently a lovely agriturismo encompassing more than 550 sqm with a maximum guest capacity of 12 divided into 5 bedrooms and one suite.

The villa is comprised of three floors.
On the ground floor, with external entrances, there are the laundry facilities, two technical rooms ( water, heating, and electricity) and an oven.
On the inside there is a spacious kitchen, a study, a large vaulted living room, another large vaulted living/dining room with a charming area in front of a fireplace, a bathroom with shower and a bedroom with en suite bathroom.

The first floor is comprised of 4 bedrooms each with private bathroom.
The top floor hosts a suite, 67 sqm of prestige and comfort, complete with fabulous views, for two guests. The suite includes a living room with fireplace, small cooking area, and spacious bedroom with a very original and elegant bathroom which includes the "Devon" tub with lion-paw legs, twin sinks and shower.
All of the rooms are fully acclimatized and equipped with safe boxes, screened windows, and en suite bathrooms with hair dryers.
The spaces are open and relaxing, typical of the antique Tuscan country homes, with handmade terracotta floors, chestnut ceiling beams, arches and vaults which suggest the beauty of times long gone.

The villa has antique origins and was originally a fortress, as evident from its strategic position, and all the rooms look out onto the sublime view of the Tuscan countryside and the towers of San Gimignano.

In front of the villa is a garden with gazebo and the swimming pool, 6x12 m, is positioned in a very quiet area with a lovely pergola and sunning area.

This is ideal for those who are looking for a property with privacy but not isolation.
