The Relais houses on the ground floor a delightful indoor cloister, bar, restaurant and breakfast rooms with related facilities, as well as spacious and elegant common rooms with a fireplace, and two rooms. The impressive interior staircase or elevator reaches the second floor with a terrace overlooking the cloister and a long corridor with 20 rooms all with private bathrooms and wardrobes.

The villa is immersed in its own private park of about 2 hectares completely bordered by an ancient boundary wall. Inside is an enchanting Italian garden embellished with rose garden, large swimming pool with adjacent lawn areas, woodland with tall Tuscan cypresses, centuries-old holm oaks and an ancient tabernacle.

The property enjoys considerable value and is in excellent condition. Original and salvaged materials were used in the renovation, and valuable architectural elements were preserved, including cornices, jambs, columns and corbels. The stone, original floors, coffered ceilings and numerous frescoes make the property unique. Bathrooms are more modern, with resin floors and glass showers with travertine marble walls. The former chapel and sacristy have been converted into dining rooms, retaining all the original features. Of particular note is the tower, which is currently used as a suite and consists of a bedroom, bathroom, and relaxation room with a small pool with whirlpool and a unique 360-degree panoramic view of San Gimignano’s towers, the countryside, and surrounding small villages.
