Ex Convento di San Francesco

San Francesco is part of a 16th century compound designed by the Renaissance architect Antonio San Gallo the Younger for the noble Orsini family 10 minutes walking outside Pitigliano old town, the ancient and most beautiful borgo in Tuscany. Situated on 26 acres, the convent is perched over a wooded ravine with dramatic views of distant vineyards and grazing sheep in the meadows below. The property adjoining the park, Poggio Strozzoni, holds Etruscan carved throne seats and reclining sculptural remains of a garden created at the time by the noble Orsinis.
The building itself has been renovated with all modern conviences while maintaining the look of an untouched and magical place. There is a fully equipped chef's kitchen, high speed internet and an 18m saltwater pool overlooking a fascinating landscape towards Monte Amiata.
The house has a rose-covered cloister in the front courtyard perfect for outdoor dining or just lounging outside. The ground floor's main receiving room was once a winery and today hosts large wood burning hearth with dining space for 20 guests. A carved tufa rock cellar sits below this cavernous room, but there is also a cosy dining area for 6 guests by the auxiliary kitchen. Alibrary and another very comfortable sitting room upstairs open onto a terrace with views over the lavender-parterred ancient fi
g garden—great at sunset—and countless other very private spots for reading, visiting and resting. 6 bedrooms (5 double and 1 single) decorated withbeautiful linen sheets, down pillows and sided by 7 bathrooms.
