This beautiful property belongs to an exclusive estate, a huge farm of 750 acres that produces Chianti Classico wine, and includes an historic castle.  The 360° view from each point on the estate ranges over endless rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves. On a clear day it is possible to see even the towers of San Gimignano in the distance. San Luigi is an impressive stone-built farmhouse that dates back to the 16th century with a striking internal courtyard around which it was built. The property was totally restored in 2006 by its discerning owners, who used authentic traditional materials of the area and equipped it with all modern facilities. The interiors are particularly airy and spacious, with doors both to the courtyard and to the garden. Guided tours of the estate and the castle, including Tuscan wine tasting, can also be arranged. Past clients particularly appreciated the visit of the wine cellars guided by the owners, and the experience is even more enjoyable in September, a beautiful month for visiting this part of Tuscany, when the guests can assist and participate to the wine harvest. Although in a secluded and quiet location, it is only 7 km away from a highway exit and therefore is also an ideal base for trips to the Chianti area and main Tuscan towns.
 
The exterior features a beautiful large swmming pool (12mx6m), a fully equipped terrace perfect for dining al fresco with fantastic wide sweeping views and a summer kitchen with BBQ and pizza oven.
