THE FARMHOUSE

The apartment is located within a large converted brick and stone farmhouse whose structure, both variegated and complex, clearly shows a number of additions and enlargements made in the course of the centuries. The farmhouse was originally built in the late 17th century in a typically rational and practical Leopoldine style.
A sandstone boundary stone (now placed at the bottom of the staircase to the loggia) found during restoration work carried out on the farmhouse and carrying the date 1671 testifies to the building’s antiquity and lets us suppose the building was actually built in even remoter times as we take into account the roman origin of the village of Centoia (from latin Centuria, a roman encampment, later to become Censorio in the high middle-ages) and frequent finds such as brick and terracotta shards made in the surroundings and bearing witness to the presence in the area of a late roman fornace.
The building is divided into two large apartments, La loggia, that may accomodate up to 7 people, Gli Archi that may accommodate up to 6 people and other rooms reserved for the reception of the farmhouse guests. A further 2 person apartment Il Giogo was converted from part of the owner’s house. The farmhouse features large and shady lawns equipped with gazebos, table-tennis table, a 6x12 mt swimming-pool, a wood-burning oven and a barbecue bearing testimony to the love and respect of the owners for gardening and nature more in general.
The location, though very close to the village of Centoia and the most important roads, ensures absolute privacy and allows guests to have a nice and relaxing time in a virtually stress-free oasis immersed in the verdant tuscan countryside amongst olive groves, vineyards and tilled fields.
