Our old family house has its origins back in the 14th century; at that time the village of San Giovanni d’Asso was just a built up area around the Castle. Later ,in the 16th century,a few buildings in front of it were combined to form an important house for a bishop of the noble Siennese Borghesi family; some members of this family later on moved to Rome where they changed their name in Borghese(Camillo Borghesi became Pope with the name of Paolo V) . On the front of the house you can still see the coat of arms with the winged dragon symbol of the Borghese family.In the 18th century a member of the Sansedoni family,another important ancient Siennese family,designed and created the impressive hanging garden.In the 19th century the house was remodeled by the noble family Pannilini ,who at the time also owned the Castle; from the beginning of the past century the house belongs to our family.
San Giovanni d’Asso is a tiny village,lying in a beautiful countryside. In November there is an important white truffle fair and show that takes place in the Castle. In the village you can find a bank, post office, a cafè, chemist shop and a supermarket; two nice restaurants that offer pleasant traditional meals. A few basics of course but you can survive!
An old door sided by two travertine benches introduces you to the entrance hall and from there to the garden and to the fenced pool; going up a short flight of stairs you find on your left a dining room with two French doors that open on the pleasant terrace overlooking the garden and the pool with a beautiful view on the rolling hills. The terrace is furnished with tables, chairs and umbrellas. Moving on there is another dining room with fireplace and an AC kitchen fully equipped with all the usual appliances: a fridge-freezer, a small fridge for drinks, gas hob, fan assisted oven, dishwasher, washing machine, American coffee maker, food processor.
Crossing a landing at the top of the short flight of stairs already mentioned, you find on your right two sitting rooms; from the larger one with an antique coffered ceiling and an interesting flooring you can reach a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a twin bedded room (the beds can be joined upon request)with en suite bathroom and another twin bedded room with bathroom en suite; all these bedrooms have ceiling fans. Leaving the smaller sitting room, equipped with satellite TV, you will find a bathroom first and after a few steps, at the mezzanine, a large AC twin bedded room where the beds can be joined upon request.
Two double AC bedrooms and two bathrooms, climbing a couple of steps there is an AC suite comprising a twin bedded room with old iron beds, a bathroom, a sitting room and another double bedroom from which departs a travertine staircase leading you back down to the larger sitting room at the ground floor.
What makes this house different and especially pleasant is the fact that it is located in the middle of a village but at the same time the garden and the pool are private, secluded from sight. The village is strategically located ,with all main attractions (Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano,Bagno Vignoni and others) within a short drive distance. The house is large, beautiful, and antique. It can hold comfortably a party of sixteen. In this house everyone can find his own space to relax, read, reflect or simply enjoy the company of family and friends. The large hanging garden contains a big swimming pool(6x12 m) furnished with sun beds and umbrellas. The villa can be also rented just in part; by closing two doors at the ground and at the first floor it becomes suitable for a party of eight.
