VILLA SAINA – TORRITA DI SIENA
Located on a hilly position, with panoramic views over the countryside, Villa Sania is a beautiful farmhouse, originating in the 1300s. Although restored to offer all the modern requirements, the house still preserves its original structure with terracotta floors and brick arches. Just a few minutes from the medieval town of Toritta di Siena, with its beautiful main square and tower, the house is perfect for those who are looking for a quiet holiday home that is close to shops and restaurants.
