Restored abbey in Tuscany in the middle of a nature reserve 25 km from the sea
This restored historic hermitage for sale from the 13th century is situated in the middle of a 2,500 hectare wooded nature reserve near Volterra in Tuscany. The Tyrrhenian Sea can be reached in about half an hour by car. The current owners have succeeded in expressing the historical importance and the special atmosphere of the property in the best possible way during its restoration. Huge protective walls characterise the building to the outside, while inside, comfortable, beautifully designed rooms have been created, oriented according to the Feng Shui principle. About 350 m² net living space is transformed into about 500 m² gross living space by the impressive walls. On the ground floor are the living and dining rooms, a professional kitchen, utility rooms and an approx. 30 m² handicapped-accessible bedroom with bathroom, which can be divided into two double bedrooms if required. Upstairs there are four additional bedrooms with bathrooms, and in the tower there is also a spacious bedroom with its own bathroom. In the basement there is a beautiful vaulted cellar, which is currently used for wine tasting. The property has been restored with biocompatible materials and has no electromagnetic fields. There are no power poles, and the only energy source is a modern micro-generator that produces electricity and hot water simultaneously. This unique property can be used for rent and is particularly suitable for people and groups who want to use this special atmosphere for their joint work, such as meditation, yoga, bodywork, music and courses of all kinds. It is also ideal as a representative private residence.
