Località Pancole, San Gimignano
Maximum capacity: 4 people
"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".
The Donatello apartment is located on the first floor of the east side building, with access from the external staircase in common with the Raffaello apartment.
It consists of a large living room, with adjacent kitchen-dining room, anteroom, bathroom, closet, double bedroom, and another large double bedroom on the level above accessible by an internal staircase. All for an area of approx. Approximately 93 sm.
The Donatello apartment is fully and finely furnished and renovated with all the original details unaltered, such as the traditional ceilings with wooden beams and bricks, the floors in terracotta bricks. The light colors of the furniture and the living wood make the environment warm and welcoming, a mix between shabby chic and rustic. The large and bright living room has windows overlooking the outdoor garden, giving the room the right light and giving moments of pure nature and tranquility, being able to admire everything from the panoramic windows. Everything is designed to make the experience of our guests genuine and memorable.
