Former convent hay a cattle barn, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves
Echoes of the Past.....
An atmospheric and quirky residence, resonant with echoes of its past as a hay and cattle barn. Situated on a typical Tuscan raised outcrop, or 'poggio', surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, 4 miles from San Gimignano and 25 from Florence and Siena.....
Vineyard walks, stunning views, wine-tasting and tours at next-door winery, 20% discount on local health spa...
The characteristic charm of the building is its visible links to its history as a convent hay and cattle barn. The long manger and some of the original tie-up hooks have been preserved and incorporated into the main bedroom, while the sunbeams pouring through the tessellated brickwork of the living room remind us that this was where the hay was once kept fresh and aerated during storage.
This is not just a pretty hill-top retreat, it is an atmospheric and quirky residence, resonant with echoes of its past.
If you listen carefully, as you relax in the high-beamed living room, you may just catch the lingering murmurs of its ruminating former occupants echoing in the rafters…..

Hi, I am retired from the US Air Force and my wife and I spent many years in Italy and other European countries both during my military service and afterwards. We always lived in Italian communities among Italians rather than on military bases so that our children, now grown, went to Italian schools and we all learned to speak Italian fluently. We love Italian food, wine and the great small-town markets where you can pick up all kinds of quirky stuff! Travi Risonanti is our Tuscan retreat, and we would like to share it with you!
What makes this Barn unique
Tours and wine-tasting at next-door winery; 20% discount on local health spa Experience more of genuine local culture by living among rural, working Tuscans, rather than surrounded by other tourists in a resort.
