Situated on a hilltop with 360-degree views, a landscaped walk path guides you up to the 2 hectares of beautifully landscaped property. Podere San Gerolamo, a 20th century ruin, situated in Crete Senesi, the heart of Tuscany, has been carefully restored and crafted to weave luxury and comfort into a genuine Italian experience. With over 5,500 sq. feet (550 sq. meters) of living space, San Gerolamo has been designed with flexibility in mind to comfortably host groups of up to 10 guests providing ample living spaces, allowing guests opportunities to come together and share, or retreat and relax.

    The ruin was hand-selected over dozens of others due to its perfect location in the heart of the Crete Senesi, one of the most scenic and desirable areas of Tuscany. Perfectly nestled on a hillside in the Tuscan countryside, the sweeping vistas from San Gerolamo are unrivaled. Surrounded by rolling medieval hills you will encounter classic Tuscan scenes: farmers busy harvesting, rows of cypress trees lining the iconic white roads, and the towers of Siena peeking over the horizon.

    The restoration works were led by Fulvio Di Rosa, an award-winning architect that has spent the last three decades bringing life back to rural farmhouses and abandoned Tuscan hamlets. His dedication to authenticity knows no bounds. Mr. Di Rosa believes that in a restoration, the architect takes on a very unique role. Rather than showcase one’s own ideas, the restoration architect allows the original methodologies and materials to lead the way, uncovering the ideas of the past.

    The original farmhouse has been carefully restored under the direction of a skilled team of local craftsmen. They have, with their decades of experience, beautifully integrated the finest modern technologies into the original home. Original wood beams, cotto flooring tiles, and authentic roof tiles have all been preserved and repurposed. When additional building materials were required, centuries-old beams and tiles were sourced in order to maintain San Gerolamo’s authenticity and character.

    The property features 5 air conditioned master bedrooms with en-suite full bathrooms, an authentic forno room and a fully-equipped chef’s kitchen to enjoy your traditional Tuscan meals with private-labeled house wine, a media room with smart TV and a gym. The external area features an infinity edge salt water pool with jacuzzi, al fresco dining areas and a private olive grove. Podere San Gerolamo owns 1 hectare of the surrounding land and the access to the property is via a private-gated drive.
