State and finishing
The property is a historic, rural village, fully restored and dating from the 1600s, a time when Montepulciano and the surrounding area was ruled by the Medici family. At the time, this aristocratic family made an effort to reclaim and restore marshland for the building of small farms and villages in strategic locations, with the aim of bartering the transfer of these reclaimed lands. This property was among these villages, and 4 or 5 families would have lived there, farming and raising livestock.
Signs of this historic activity are still visible in the village today.
Over the centuries, the houses have been reworked and restored many times, using high-quality materials and retaining their historic and architectural features.
The village includes around 1 hectare of land (which includes the foundations of the buildings) which is used as grounds and garden, with a swimming pool and large car park.
Use and potential uses
The location, in one of Tuscany’s most popular tourist areas, makes this property an obvious destination for a tourism business, which it would be advantageous and natural to keep up.
