Here, lovers of history, art and culture can "feel" those emotions that moved our ancestors to elect this place as their home; the hearty welcome and kind, true attentions you will receive will do the rest to make your stay unforgettable.
In detail, the Villa and Fattoria di Catignano are two buildings intimately linked which form part of one single residential, country mansion. In the past, the Villa was exclusively used by the noble family Sergardi as their home, and the Fattoria was a real farmhouse devoted to farming and agricultural activity, mostly for the production of wine and extra virgin olive oil.
Four indipendent, small country houses, surrounded by their own garden, provide a rustic accommodation.
Now a rural, vacation resort...
... once a real farmhouse. In old times, the Fattoria was infact devoted to farming and agricultural activity, mostly for the production of wine and extra virgin olive oil. In history books about Siena, a small borough is mentioned under the name of "Clatinianum". The place witnessed many events that forged the destiny of the city, and was laid waste by a band of Spaniards in 1554.
