"Il Castro" was born in the thirteenth century as a rural village, on the Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrimage route. It is said that in the 16th century Michelangelo, on his way to Rome, stayed there for a few nights, being impressed by the ancestral beauty of the places.
Today "Il Castro" opens up to international hospitality by offering four apartments finely recovered from a careful renovation that leaves the signs of the past unaltered. The classic furniture, scrupulously decorated by local artisans is combined in perfect harmony with elements of fine design, giving a minimalist and refined effect. Extraordinary finishes in the bathrooms where the search for detail and the quality of the materials transform the environment into something unique of its kind.
The outdoor space is truly extraordinary: located on the top of a hill, the view sweeps 360 ° offering breathtaking views, from the view of the famous towers of San Gimignano, a medieval town declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the south, to the mountain range of Apuan Alps to the north.
A beautiful infinity pool, overlooking San Gimignano, is available to guests of "Il Castro".
