Dating from 1600, this group of buildings in the honey-coloured Pienza stone was originally used as a convent and later as a farmhouse for landowners. Recently the property has been divided into two properties, one has been completely restored and provides 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with large reception rooms, whilst the other has yet to be restored, offering endless possibilities to create a large family home or business with unbeatable views of Pienza. The outbuildings include a large cantina, suitable for wine production or, with relevant permissions, a guest cottage and pool house due to its position close to a panoramic terrace ideal for a swimming pool. The land includes 2,25 ha. of vineyards and over 400 organic certified olive trees stretching over 2 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Situated in an ideal location just 4 kms from Pienza with unique views of the town and stunning countryside, the property offers privacy and tranquility yet easy access to both Pienza and Montepulciano where all necessary amenities can be found. Siena is just 60 kms and the international airports in Florence and Rome are both accessible in less than 2 hours.

The sale includes approximately 6 hectares of land, 2.25 ha. of which are immaculately kept organic vineyards, both red (Sangiovese and Merlot) and white, a rare Manzone blend of Pinot Grigio and Riesling usually found in Switzerland. There are approximately 400 olive trees, again certified organic. The rest of the land is the garden surrounding the farmhouse and some woodland. A panoramic terrace with spectacular views to Pienza would be the ideal position for a swimming pool.
