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, washing machine, parking on the premises and weekly linen change are included in the price. 2 extra beds are available in a sofa bed in the living room (to be requested when booking and to be paid for directly on the spot – euro 15/day/person).
The house spreads onto a ground floor (but with a few stairs inside): living/dining room with satellite TV and kitchen corner equipped with oven, freezer, dishwasher; 1 double bedroom (beds can be separated), 1 single bedroom, 2 bathrooms with shower.
