The holdiay home "Il Nespolo" ("The Medlar") is an ideal place where you can relax and spend your holiday in a tranquil setting in contact with the sounds and smells of tuscan nature.

In the vicinity there are many towns of historical and cultural interest that you can visit as well as soaking up the spectacular and beautiful views of the country side.
The house is only 25km from Florence and 35km from Siena.
The holdiay home "Il Nespolo" was built in the 1400's by the Parish of Campoli (dating from the 1000's) as a convent for the nuns.
In the beginning of the 1800's the house and the hamlet were transformed into civilian homes for the farmers who worked for the Parish.
In 2010 the property was completely renovated.
The house is split over two levels.

The house still has most of its antique furnishings dating from between the 1700's and 1800's. The floor inside is the orginal clay baked paving and the ceilings have exposed wooden beams.
