PRIVATE STRUCTURE. La Capanna di Franca is an old barn which, in 2006, thanks to careful restoration work that has enhanced the original architectural style, was transformed into a warm and comfortable country house. Standing in the medieval hamlet of Palazzavelli, a tiny cluster of houses just one kilometre from the centre of Sovicille, but in an independent position, this rustic stone farmhouse is surrounded by a lush garden with a beautiful view from the windows of the first floor over the surrounding countryside against the background of Siena which is just a few kilometres away.

Additional Location Information

The property is located in the municipality of Sovicille, a fortified village at the foot of the Montagnola Senese, a range of hills about 500-600 m high which extends west of Siena and includes the towns of Monteriggioni, Casole d'Elsa and Siena. The region of the Montagnola Senese and, in general, the Val di Merse, is an area of great natural, historical and artistic interest. In fact, this is a region which, due to its significant environmental and landscape quality, can boast of being a "Site of Community Importance". It is a true green lung in which the dominant element is woodland with typical Mediterranean vegetation alternating with numerous watercourses, and rural settlements alternating with houses and fortified castles, forming the traditional landscape of Tuscany. Here we find an historical and artistic heritage of absolute importance like the Romanesque churches and the famous abbeys. The area has also been famous for centuries for the production of precious marbles (the famous "yellow Siena") used for the construction of important works such as the Duomo of Siena. Thanks to the good road network the main art cities of Tuscany and other tourist resorts in the area are within easy reach of the property. The Siena railway station is 16 kilometres from the house and can be reached by bus from outside the front gate. Finally, only 10 minutes by car is the shopping area of Siena, Via Massetana Romana, full of shops and supermarkets. Only 5 minutes by car are the supermarket in Rosia and San Rocco a Pilli, open on Sunday morning.
