The apartment is equipped with heating and cooking, has a separate entrance and overlooks the courtyard of the villa and the hills at the back. It is about a hundred meters from the pool. It is located on the first floor of the farmhouse and consists of a double bedroom, a bedroom with two single beds (or double bed), a bathroom, and a living room with kitchenette. It 'decorated in italian Art Nouveau style. Internet is available in the courtyard and in common areas. In the apartment, because of the very thick walls, the signal is a little low.

Guest Access

At the center of the Estate is located the Villa with very ancient origins, already owner the family Cacciaconti at the end of 1200 was chosen as a place of retreat and prayer on the part of the Blessed Bonizzella Cacciaconti whose body, guarded by an urn on the altar of the church of Trequanda, is exposed to worship at the solemn celebrations dedicated to her in the month of May of each year. Later, the farm became the property of the Piccolomini family, and in 1500 of the family who possess today.
The buildings surrounding the house have been restored and are now part of the farm, made even more enjoyable by a beautiful pool overlooking the surrounding countryside, and a large dining room where you can taste the products of the farm and spend pleasant hours in front of the fireplace.
