Villa Antiche Mura – Val D’Elsa – Tuscany
5+2 Bedrooms - Pool
In the area of Barberino Val d’Elsa, on the summit of a hill, 310 metres above sea level lie a group of houses and a villa which stand among vineyards, olive groves and woods on the watershed of the Elsa and Pesa valleys. Here the silent magic treasure of a thousand years of collaboration between a generous soil and an extraordinary line of descendants is preserved.
Oh Guests of this ancient abode, now is the time to lose yourselves in these surrounding lands which are rich in traces of Etruscan roads and memories of Roman conquerers. In Middel Age this part of Tuscany was an important meeting point between Florence and the Via Francigena for Rome; it lies very near the scene of the deadly duel between the council powers of Florence and the aristocratic pride of Semifonte.
Villa Antiche Mura is an admirable example of architecture from the “Lorenese” period on a par with the most famous Medici Villas from the fifteen hundreds; this beautiful building still has an ancient oil mill within its walls thus showing itself to be intimately connected to agricultural demands.
Scholars have established that the present church was restored in the eighteen hundreds and completed in 1850. The bell tower was completed in 1880. What remains of the ancient castle It has been suggested that parts of its foundations make up the impressionable walls of the Villa’s underground passages: the fascination of the eternal youth of medieval Tuscany lies in thousands of secrets like these.
