You have never been looking for it; all the more this farmhouse will amaze you. Behind the rural appearance of the place the episcopal archive documents its history in the 18th century as a religious foundation. The very location however as well as the medieval masonry are reminding an even older past under the Viscounts of Campiglia, probably a hostel with a nearby tavern for pilgrims on the Via Francigena heading to Rome or to the thermal baths of San Casciano. And the bumpy Tuscan landscape comes right up against the entrance threshold.
The access to the property is from a mountain road in perfect condition, since the Municipality does all the maintenance works. It is 5km away from the town of San Casciano dei Bagni.
The main farmhouse of about 350sqm is spread over three levels.

The first floor, entirely for residential use and from which you can also access directly from the porch, is composed of: a large living room, two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a hallway that houses the access staircase to the second floor. From the porch, without entering the interior of the house itself, it is possible to access a small storage room which is planimetrically located above the other storage room (low height) on the ground floor and where, between the two rooms, there is a wood oven. On the second floor, there is a mezzanine, an attic and two large rooms for a bedroom and a bathroom.
