Podere Scurcoli

Stacks Image 45

The Scurcoli Estate lies in centuries-old seclusion on a high knoll in the centre of Le crete senesi. Views extend from the gullies of the crete to the rugged hills of Chianti and the gentle slopes of the Val D'Orcia, dominated by Mount Amiata.
Scurcoli is the tenement mentioned in a document of 1040 as "Sculcoli", located as an observation point (skulk is a Germanic word meaning "guard", "lookout") of the territory and the road that joined the parish churches of the surrounding areas. The emblem of the House is still preserved to this day on the façade of the entrance lodge, reflecting its importance.

Accomodation

"Your house is your larger body. It grows in the sun and sleeps in the stillness of the night; and it is not dreamless."
(Kahlil Gibran, The prophet, 1923)

The estate consists of two buildings that enclose a large inner courtyard. It was the old farmyard where, until the middle of last Century, the grain was spread after harvest.
