Full description:

An ancient fortification dating back to 1250, the Casaglia tower, now an elegant country house, is situated on a hill dominating Val d'Elsa and San Gimignano: from here, the 360 ° panoramic view offers a landscape of rare beauty. The 250-sqm house is the result of a careful renovation carried out in 2004 by the current owner and is spread over three floors above ground. The property is housed in an elegant condominium setting of 7 real estate units, with pool and solarium overlooking the famous towers of San Gimignano. On the ground floor there is a large living room with vaulted arch and fireplace, as well as a spacious masonry kitchen whose furniture is made of old oak barrels, a bedroom and a bathroom with shower. Climbing to the first floor through a wrought iron and wood staircase, we access a bedroom/study with observation and reading point, and a mini gym with bath and sauna. The upper floor of the tower houses the beautiful master bedroom with fireplace and the large bathroom with a latest generation Jacuzzi. From here, the view really leaves breathless. From every window, you can appreciate the imposing view of the city of San Gimignano and the rolling hills covered with vines and olive trees: it is like a painting! Outside there is an ancient paved court dating back to 1550 of about 250 square metres and a large porch, ideal for outdoor dining. In the basement of the tower, an untouched tuff cellar allows you to keep the wine produced in the vineyards at the ideal temperature. Property is to be considered a very rare pearl of its kind, a great place for relaxation and convivial occasions. A small private garden adorned with secular cypresses and two parking spaces complete the property.
The tower is located on one of the routes of Via Francigena, the great pilgrimage route that united North Europe to Rome. The territory of Casaglia was crucial since ancient times, for the control of roads and traffic (from the top of the 238 metres of the hill it was possible to observe various stretches of the Via Francigena and the secondary roads connecting castles, churches and abbeys in the area). The silica-arid soil of the Casaglia area from the thirteenth century has proved to be ideal to the cultivation of a small flower, the crocus sativus from which the saffron is obtained, a spice that became the object of trade and contributed to the power of the medieval San Gimignano. San Gimignano is still crowned by its walls, characterized by its unique turreted skyline known all over the world. The proximity (5km) to the motorway Siena Florence and to all the services offered by the beautiful town of Poggibonsi make this place an attractive residential and tourist home. Distances: Poggibonsi (about 5 km), San Gimignano (about 6 km), Florence + airport (about 35 km), Siena (25 km), Volterra (30 km), Pisa + airport (50 km), the vineyards of the Chianti Classico (15 km), Castelfalfi (golf 18 holes) 32km.
