Corzanello

 

 

The medieval fortified farmhouse Corzanello strides a hill covered in vineyards, olive trees and an oak wood. This hill extends along the Pesa Valley and the historic roman road, the Via Cassia, which connects Florence and Siena. It commands a dramatic view over the vineyards and olive groves, towards the neighboring hills, where you can see milk sheep grazing. They are a reminder of the various activities of the 350 acre family owned farm; the production of a range of highly recognized wines, and extra virgin olive oil, and a variety of sheep milk cheeses; products used by some of Florence’s finest restaurants.
Corzanello has 6 double bedrooms with twin beds. The tower is also a bedroom, but has also been used by one member of the family as a painters atelier; it is a two story, gallery space with wonderful light. There are 3 bathrooms, a sitting room and a large kitchen dominated by a walk-in fireplace. Particularly attractive is the walled patio with a small octagonal pool ( 3,5 m. wide, 1,7 m. deep) which can be used for a refreshing bathe during the summer months; with a spectacular view towards the villas topping the surrounding hills. There is also a swimming pool (12 x 6 m) available at the nearby Farm.
