Podere la Marronaia is a small familyrunned farm, sitting on a small hill surrounded by vineyards and olivegroves, not far from the historic center of S.Gimignano (2km ). In 2000 my husband Luigi and I together with our sons Pietro and Corrado, in love with this place, decided to buy this property to make of it our home and business. Today our farm is involved in flats renting, production and sale of organic wines and evo olive, and offer to the guests wine tastings and Tuscan cooking classes.
The core of our farmhouse consists of the watching tower built in 1200 as part of the defensive wall of the city of San Gimignano.
After the purchasing in 2000 we started a long rennovation work and had 3 flats from the old stables.
