Villa Il Cortile

Part of a 50-hectar estate, this handsome 13th century former monastery is a real knockout. The current owners restored the large beamed ceilings, added handmade tiles and all the modern must haves. Built as a square, the extra special feature is the original courtyard, which allows great light and cross ventilation. The location is secluded but is only 15 minutes from Siena.

With family or with a group of friends, there is still the possibility of finding private spaces in order to set aside moments of relaxation and privacy, in addition to broad areas where we can meet to share dinners prepared in the large, cozy kitchen, with typical products of this wonderful corner of Tuscany, to play football or tennis, to dive and swim in the beautiful swimming pool ... or even for a barbecue in the evening, at the pool, enjoying the raking light of a sunset over the hills and Siena on the horizon, which slowly lights up.

The villa has at your disposal a large garden of 10,000 m² maintained and equipped with swimming pool (15 m. X 7.50 m. Deep by 0.90 m. 3.00 m.) From May to October. At 200 m. from the main building there is a tennis court, Football court, bowling alley, gym.
