A brief history
The history of Podere La Castellina dates back to the 13th century when it was built as a convent for the nuns of Saint Prospero, whose order is still functioning in Siena today. In 1504 the property was acquired by the Tolomei family, famous and wealthy landowners at the time, and who converted it into a farm.
Throughout the centuries the property passed through the hands of several owners until being finally abandoned during the 1950’s. Forty years later Podere La Castellina was lovingly converted into the charming holiday farmhouse residence you see today, taking care to retain many of its original features.
