Farmhouse Il Castello is located in the hills between San Miniato and San Gimignano, in a beautiful and panoramic position. Six independent apartments have been created, the result of a careful restoration of a farmhouse below the main farm, where there are four other apartments.

The farm lies at the centre of an active agricultural estate that produces high quality wines and extra virgin olive oil. The owners will be more than happy to show guests the cellar and offer tastings of their products.

There are seven apartments, some with wonderful views overlooking the woods and some with spectacular views of the valley. They are all very well equipped with satellite TV, DVD, fans, hob, fridge/freezer, kettle, coffee maker, TV/phone monitor for electric gates. Each apartment also has a safety deposit box. There are free bicycles for guests. Just off the reception area (this was once a hayloft) they have a fully equipped gym free for guests. There is a further apartment in the castle itself: Apartment Castello.

Close to the apartments is an 11 x 5 metre swimming pool, and there's also a barbecue and sun terrace. Facilities include a laundry room and a private parking area.
