The first traces of the hamlet of Scurcoli are found as far back as 1040, when it is mentioned with the name ‘Sculcoli’ in a document of the time. A name that in the Germanic means “watchtower”, testifying to its function of guarding the territory. And from Podere Scurcoli, in fact, the view sweeps in several directions, from Mount Amiata to Chianti, and it finally reaches the Crete Senesi.
There are three dwellings for guests, all of which have been renovated maintaining the original structures in brick, wooden beams and stone walls: Torre, Capanna and Scurcoli. The first two are separated by a large garden which, when the farm was still inhabited by farmers and sharecroppers, was the threshing floor where the freshly harvested grain was spread out. Scurcoli, on the other hand, is the manor house, characterised by a wide marble staircase. The accommodations are all equipped with a kitchen, a private bathroom and a veranda. A few metres away is a 14×7 metre swimming pool, where you can take a refreshing swim and enjoy dreamlike sunsets.
