The current structure is typical of the Tuscan farm of the late eighteenth century. Both home-made and agricultural use today welcome comfortable apartments for visitors. The great antique stone oven of the late nineteenth century was still intact, where the bread was baked and the game and roasts were cooked on holiday days. The panorama is characterized by holm oaks, oak and maples, olive groves and vineyards of the estate of San Gimignanello and the Crete Senesi. It is located inside the municipality of Rapolano Terme (SI), until the 1970s it was part of the great estate of the Castle of San Gimignanello, one of the feudals of the Counts of the Scialenga, Lords of Asciano, dating back to the year 1000. A few kilometers away there are some of the most important historical-cultural and enogastronomic centers in Italy such as: Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, the Abbeys of Sant’Antimo and Monte Oliveto Maggiore, not to mention some of the most exclusive Thermal baths in the region like Rapolano Terme, Bagno Vignoni, Bagni S.Filippo and San Casciano dei Bagni. ACCOMMODATION: Il Portico was the place where the farmers who lived on the Podere hung rows of chillies, mushrooms and tomatoes, meticulously sewn in a 'filza', to dry in the sun away from the weather. The apartment is an open space, located on the ground floor of the building, has two entrances, one facing a private garden furnished to allow you to enjoy the beautiful view of the surrounding countryside and the other in the internal courtyard building. Inside the house there is a beautiful historic fireplace to be lit on long winter evenings. The house consists of one double bedroom and one bathroom, an equipped kitchen and for your relaxation, the living room. Each room has a precise identity. The apartments are all furnished differently from each other. The house has a private outdoor area, fully furnished and illuminated. WiFi, hot-cold inverter air conditioning in the bedroom and kitchen - living room. The porch represents the perfect place where you can immerse yourself in the enveloping heat of the fireplace and find yourself immersed in the greenery of the surrounding nature.More
