Description from manager

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. L’Ovile is a typical Tuscan farmhouse whose origins date back to the beginning of the 20th century; it was bought, together with the larger estate Casanova, by the present owners in the 60’s and used as a farm, whose fundamental principle is the protection and respect of nature and the territory. The farmhouse, in a separate position and independent from the farm, and consistent with its spirit and vocation, has been recently restored with reclaimed materials such as the stone which covers the structure or else with new materials made in the old way such as the stone floor or the bricks set above the chestnut beams which cover the ceiling. The recent renovations have further characterized the farmhouse (equipped with solar panels and PV system), conferring to the outside the particular fortress style, a building technique which lends greater resilience to the structure and which was used in the Middle Ages. L’Ovile, immersed in the green lung of the Sienese Montagnola, is the ideal place for those wishing to spend a holiday dedicated to eco-tourism where Nature is protagonist, for those wishing to experience the territory composed of dense woods, rich in chestnut groves. In these places, once the more well-known spots are left behind, the traveller finds unexpected and surprising roads that accompany him in his discovery of a sunny Tuscany where the countryside is vast tracts of land that stretch ad infinitum and the gentle hills invite him to be lulled amidst vineyards and olive groves. But it is also a journey into ancient history that starts from the historic centres, true salons of stone, and winds along routes rich in abbeys of Etruscan charm, of towers and ruins, testifying to old disputes and which are today immersed in absolute peace.

About the area

L’Ovile is located in the town of Sovicille, a fortified borgo situated at the foot of the south-west foothills of the Sienese Montagnola, a range of hills ******* m above sea level to the west of Siena and which includes the towns of Monteriggioni, Casole d’Elsa and Siena. The area of the Sienese Montagnola and, in general, that of the Val di Merse, is an area of great landscape, historical and artistic interest. In fact this is a region which, by virtue of its remarkable environmental and landscape quality, can boast of being a “Site of Community Importance”. This is a true green lung in which the dominant element is the woodland, with its rich Mediterranean fauna, which alternates with the numerous water courses and rural settlements, villas and castles which form the traditional Tuscan countryside. Here is to be found a historical and artistic patrimony of absolute importance: Romanesque parish churches and abbeys scattered in practically the whole territory, veritable artistic masterpieces like the abbey of Torri, Ponte della Pia, the parish churches of Ponte allo Spino, San Giusto a Balli, Molli. Also worthy of note is the presence of fortified villas and castles which, beginning from the Middle Ages, were built to defend this territory which was strategically crucial for Siena. Among the many castles stands out the fairytale castle of Celsa, in the midst of dense woods of holm oaks and chestnuts, a few km from L’Ovile. The area has also been famous for centuries for the production of fine marbles (the famous “Yellow Siena”) used for the construction of great works such as the Duomo of Siena. Testimony of this fervid activity, carried out mainly in past ages, is the multitude of quarries which are still visible and whose activity still continues today, although at a slower pace.
