GUEST HOUSES --> Corzanello


(6 bedrooms – 3 bathrooms)

The medieval fortified farmhouse Il 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. Il Corzanello, along with its sister house on the Corzano part of the farm, witnessed countless conflicts between these city states in medieval Tuscany. The houses therefore have the aspect of fortified buildings, reflecting their defensive position.They belonged to the legendary Cavalcanti and Niccolini families, Florentine nobility. The Niccolini family left the profits from these properties to generations of daughters to provide for their dowries.
The original watch tower dominates the facade of Il Corzanello and over the centuries subsequent additions have kept the original character of the house while enlarging it considerably. The building forms a courtyard with a vine-covered pergola for outside dining. It commands a dramatic view over the vineyards and olive groves, towards the neighbouring hills, where where the sheep graze.
Il Corzanello has six bedrooms. The bedroom in the tower has been used by the family as a painter’s atelier; it is a two storey, galleried space with wonderful light.
There are three bathrooms, two sitting rooms and a large fully equipped kitchen dominated by a walk-in fireplace. On the ground floor there is a laundry room with washing machine and ironing board.
