In 2011 the stone farmhouse was the subject of a meticulous and passionate restoration made by the current owner who, together with the intuitions of a brilliant architect, combined the traditional character of an ancient Tuscan farmhouse with modern elements in a harmonious contrast, boasting very good use of the space.
