The space

“Castagno Caccia” enjoys a splendid position on the summit of a hill that dominates the surrounding valley, with a panoramic view that extend for many kilometers. The countryside is clad in oak forests and cypress trees interspersed with fields with their crops, vineyards and olive groves.
The rectangular shaped swimming pool measures 10x20 meters and it is possibly shared among other apartments situated in the property. The pool has an open broad panoramic view and is equipped with deckchairs and large beach umbrellas.
Guests can take advantage of a nice veranda equipped with garden tables and chairs, at exclusive use of the guests.
In 1308, in the presence of the delegates of Florence, Pisa and Volterra the territorial borders between Volterra and San Gimignano were defined. During the course of the centuries the property was razed to the ground, subsequently rebuilt and changed owners, until in the year 1800 when it became the property of the Marquis Capponi. The Granduca di Toscana (Grand Duke of Tuscany) often stayed here while he carried out business in his territory.
Still today, the house manages to enclose its guests into the feeling of jumping in the past and breathing the summoning air of the long history that characterises the property. The interiors have been carefully restored and furnished with great care and taste, respectful of the sober and traditional Tuscan country style while still providing a great level of comfort. Satellite TV, parking on the premises and weekly linen change are included in the price. 2 additional sleeping places are available thanks to a double sofa bed in the living room. The availability has to be requested when booking and to be paid for directly on the spot – euro 15/day/person).
The house spreads over the ground floor but presents a few stairs inside: wide living/dining room with fireplace and satellite TV; kitchen corner equipped with oven, freezer and dishwasher; 2 double bedrooms (beds can be separated), with 2 bathrooms with shower. Private and equipped veranda.
