The history of the abbey started in 1085, when the widow of a powerful earl of the area ordered the construction of the building. In 1112 the building was passed onto the monks of the Vallumbrosan Order, which were then tasked with taking care of the land. Just a few years later (when the abbey was under the protection of Orvieto, 1120) portions of land were given to noblemen of the area to build houses and fortifications, whose remains are still nowadays visible in the estate.
After entering the Sienese Republic, for the entire duration of the Middle Ages and the first years of Modern Age, the abbey has remained a landmark for the pilgrims traveling to Rome through the nearby Via Francigena.
Inevitably, in the last years of 15th century, the abbey faced a slow but inexorable decadence. Many fights marked the history of the abbey which ended up in the hands of the Cistercians in the first half of the 17th century. The monks inhabited the building up until 1784 when the Soppressione Leopoldina (1780-1790) deprived religious congregations of their possessions which became property of the Grand Duchy.
In 1831, the abbey with its land became private property and started changing hands: the last passage dates back to 1989 and right in this year the current owners started a great renovation which lasted almost a decade.

The renovation has been carried out following specific criteria which allowed preserving unaltered the aspect of the many buildings. The farmhouses have been recovered and brought back to their original look without disregarding the typical features of Tuscan buildings: we can still see stone walls (thick so to grant thermal insulation), wooden beams supporting the ceilings and working stone fireplaces, all merged with the comfort of modern lifestyle.
The abbey has been recovered too but converted into a luxury residence, partially used in the accommodation business. The shape of the building makes it past evident and allows appreciating its history as a monastery.

This Tuscany real estate is located between Valdichiana and Val d’Orcia, covers an impressive 755 hectares of land, varying between 600 and 780 m above sea level. The entire property (partially fenced) is registered as a hunting reserve. An ample lake (circa 4.3 ha) supplies the estate with water for irrigation.
The land is split among arable land (382.4 ha), grazing land for livestock (32.4 ha), mixed woodland (327 ha, of which 5% of coppice wood) and an ample olive grove (8.4 ha). The remaining surface is covered by the buildings or not used in the agricultural business.
As far as woodland is concerned, it is interesting to note how the incline of the land is almost always light (except for a few sections) and is thus extremely easy to organized hiking in the land of the estate.
The several poderi making up the estate are well connected with each other by a convenient network of roads running almost 20 km inside the property.
