This vast estate was once an impervious place almost completely covered with thorn bushes, flanked by the pilgrimage roads of the XIth and XIIth century, the mountains of Mount Cetona and the watershed between the valleys of the Orcia river and the torrent Astrone, in the deep south of the Tuscan territory. Located in an isolated but strategic position dominating the Orcia valley, on the way from Sarteano to Radicofani, the estate represents a typical example of an architectural complex that, through the centuries, has been involved in historical events that have changed its original structure. Once an Abbey inhabited by monks, the estate was bought in 1989 by its actual owners that began a long period of restoration over fourteen years resulting in the complete recovery of the monastic building and twelve villas belonging to the property. The ancient walls have been restored, the spaces have been reinvented for contemporary demands but the best care has been dedicated to retain the soul of this place. It’s said that this villa was built entirely from stones taken from the nearby Castello delle Moiane, after it was destroyed in the XIVth century. The view is wide open but the house is cosy and inviting. The furniture is of very good quality.
