La querceta is a prestigious ancien farmhouse with swimming pool finely restored situated in the heart of the countryside between San Gimignano and Volterra, on the top of a hillock with a spectacular 360 degree view over the surrounding wild hills. It is currently divided into 20 rooms and 7 units but it is also prepared for a manor house with dependance.
The geographical position of this property is strategic, in fact it is an hour's drive from Florence and Pisa, 45 minutes from Siena, 45 minutes from the sea at Cecina. The villa is reachable from the centre of San Gimignano in only 20 minutes by car driving along a panoramic road In the park of about 9,800 square metres there is a swimming pool of 5x12 metres (depth 1.2 metres) and some gazebos for lunches and dinners in the open air or to enjoy an intriguing reading while sipping a genuine local wine
Volterra and San Gimignano are two thousand-year-old villages with one of the oldest histories in Tuscany, rich in history and culture. The authenticity of these villages has been preserved intact thanks to their relative isolation, which has limited the development of the historic centre, safeguarding the ancient hamlet from the building speculation of the modern era and allowing the original structure to remain intact.
Already in Etruscan times, the Val di Cecina was the link from the sea to one of the most powerful cities of the time: Volterra. Not far away is the Teatro del Silenzio, where Andrea Bocelli holds a concert once a year that attracts fans and enthusiasts from all over the world.
Whichever way you arrive, San Gimignano towers on the 334-metre-high hill with its numerous towers. Today there are still thirteen, while in the 14th century there were apparently seventy-two, all owned by wealthy families often at war with each other, the only ones who could show their economic power by building a tower.
Description of interiors
This enchanting farmhouse now consists of 7 units, 20 rooms, 15 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, but during the renovation jobs the owners prepared the property to create a manor house (by joining 4 or 5 units), so if the purchaser would like a home for himself, it can easily be realised, leaving 2 units for the guests
