The property comprises a convent and the charming Chapel of San Michele Arcangelo, built in 1550 by Vittoria Piccolomini Todeschini, niece of Pope Pio II and Pope Paolo III.
The property was inherited by generations of various families, finally coming to the Galgani family, who in turn passed the property on from father to son.
In 2019, Vittoria – granddaughter of Maria Luisa Galgani Corvi and representative of a new generation of entrepreneurs – decided to carry out a radical restoration, re-establishing the ancient beauty enjoyed by the complex in the 1500s, whilst adapting the villa to the design and technology of our time.
Thus, was born the Conti Galgani farm, today comprising an expansive olive grove, a charming villa that still exudes the peace and serenity of the antique location, along with an immense countryside that can be explored on pleasant walks in search of Etruscan remnants.
Located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside between Florence and Rome and only 70 kilometres from Siena, the Conti Galgani estate is a short distance from places that marked the history of the Etruscan people, such as Chiusi – the historical capital of this civilisation – and Cetona, as well as being near historical Renaissance towns such as Pienza, located 20 kilometres away.
Within a few minutes’ drive, you can also reach the charming and historic hot springs of San Casciano dei Bagni, just 20 kilometres away, and Bagno Vignoni at 25 kilometres.
