                          Situated where the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Florence meet, the Villa is just a short distance from the well preserved historical towns of San Gimignano and Volterra.

                          Even the village of Montelopio, about 1 km from the Villa, boasts an ancient history. The Etruscans, Longobards, the seafaring Republic of Pisa, the Templars and the noble families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany have all left their traces as they passed through or settled, attracted by this “prosperous hill”.

                          Year Purchased: 1989

                          About the owner: I love my Tuscany and all its old and new traditions, I love the country life and all that surrounds it: The discovery of old farmhouses, breathtaking landscapes and hidden places. In this case I was lucky enough to buy and renovate this house with love and professionalism, respecting the architectural systems of the past and adopting strictly original material at that time. I believe that my sacrifices I have been well rewarded since they are very happy with the final result.

At school I had as a companion Andrea Bocelli, it's right! the current Maestro Andrea Bocelli, at that time he lived with his parents too, in a small village (Lajatico) a few miles from me, where he still performs regularly every year in the beautiful scenery of hills which is (The Theatre of silence), I forgot, a few days ago, how could it happen to you I met him riding his horse, he stopped for a drink at the bar of the country. In Tuscany this can happen and more!
