Fascinating 17th-century villa with rural hamlet surrounded by 116 hectares of land with hunting reserve in addition to three swimming pools and two lakes located in the area of San Gimignano, precisely in Gambassi Terme and fully enjoys a wonderful panoramic view of the Tuscan hills.

The property is located along the ancient Via Francigena, in a panoramic position, and consists of the main villa and its ancient rural hamlet with agritourism business.

It features 7 buildings and sleeps 81 people. The villa was built in the 1600s by the senatorial Rinuccini family of Florence, both to live in during the warmer months of the year and for the administration of the estates they had acquired.

In 1998, renovation by the current owners restored the estate to its former beauty.

Currently, the main building, with an adjacent secondary body, houses 4 housing units for an area of about 1600 sqm. The villa offers hospitality in its 8 spacious double rooms and its large halls perfect for hosting ceremonies and meetings.

The old carriage house, which overlooks the private garden, has been carefully converted into a ceremony hall while maintaining the old brick vaults.

The borgo is home to 15 other apartments, all with independent entrances and equipped outdoor space, arranged over five farmhouses with typical Tuscan architecture, a reception room with technical rooms and a coach house to accompany the natural hunting reserve overlooking the Volterra hills.

The reception hall can accommodate up to 130 guests, while the garden can accommodate more than 250.

Outdoor Spaces
The total area is 116 hectares and is divided into two distinct portions, one predominantly residential and one for agricultural use. 1.4 ha of pinot noir vineyard, 55 hectares of woodland, 55 hectares of arable land in addition to 800 olive trees and 1 ha for lavender cultivation.

In addition, the complex has 2 lakes, the largest of 8000 sqm and the other of 1000 sqm with beautiful water lilies. The property is completed by three beautiful swimming pools serving the villa and the farmhouses, surrounded by greenery with a sunbathing area and breathtaking views of the Tuscan hills.

Careful renovation by the current owners in 1998 restored the estate to its former beauty. The rooms respect the style of Tuscan aristocratic residences, with spacious and bright halls with original terracotta floors and coffered, vaulted or arched ceilings.

Potential uses
The perfect dwelling as a large estate or to continue and increase the current accommodation and agricultural business.

A strategic location in the heart of Tuscany, just 6 km from San Gimignano, 10 km from Certaldo and 15 km from Volterra.
