Holiday Rental House
The villa was an ancient historical structure going back to before the year 1200, originally the chapel 'Santa Maria Church', near the burg of Casaglia. Over the centuries, the chapel was deconsecrated to become, first a watchtower, and then a place where the farmers of the surrounding countryside would hold their rural festivals and where they also kept their farming implements. The owners have personally restored the villa, preserving the original stones, which were then used in the reconstruction; old and similar materials were used to replace what was missing.The villa, to be let for exclusive use, is surrounded by cypresses that provide shade and is especially suited for relaxation and open-air lunches and dinners in full privacy and peace.The owners personally look after the cleanin...The villa was an ancient historical structure going back to before the year 1200, originally the chapel 'Santa Maria Church', near the burg of Casaglia.

About the neighbourhood
In the heart of Tuscany, atop one of the hills that dominates the Elsa Valley, stands San Gimignano,selected by UNESCO as a world heritage site; it is an ancient medieval town, heir to rich history and culture, which has preserved its historical roots, as well as its art masterpieces. You should visit the cathedral, containing frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli and Ghirlandaio, and the Museo Civico with its collection of apothecary jars from the Spezieria di Santa Fina. Besides its famous Vernaccia wine, San Gimignano's many shops offer the products of typical Tuscan artisans, marked by the skill and tradition handed down from father to son, from boar sausages to cheeses, from terracotta to hand-made pottery.
