The 19th century Villa originally was a monastery. For five generations it has belonged to the Cascino family who restored it and started to host events like weddings, painting, theatre, tango courses and cooking classes. The luxuriant garden surrounding the Villa has secular plants that give you the opportunity to eat “al fresco” and a small delighftul consacrated chapel to provide a quiet corner for private meditation. From the big garden you have a stunning views of the gentle rolling hills that lead to the ancient towers of S.Gimignano. The garden gives access to the swimming pool. Inside the Villa is very spacious and… all for your personal use! On the first floor there is a large dining room and a huge living room with sofas and a stone fireplace. The kitchen with a traditional tuscan fireplace and the old marble table used to prepared bread and pasta fresca, evokes the past! On the ground floor of the Villa, there is a large, well-equipped kitchen only for your cooking lessons!
