This graceful country residence is near the ancient town of Castelfiorentino on the Francigen Route, once the main thoroughfare from Rome to France. “Villa di Montespertoli” is steeped in history. Its origins date back to the early years of the 13th century when a powerful Longobard clan from the Elsa Valley – the Conti Albertis - chose this as the site for their castle, later converted into the elegant villa you can see today.
On the ground floor the front door gives onto a large, cosy living room with fireplace. On the left, a beautiful marble staircase connects to the first floor. From the living room a corridor provides access to the rest of the house. The spacious and fully equipped kitchen on the right, has terracotta flooring and beamed ceilings.
