The farmhouse, built right on the remains of the tower, is located on the highest point of the hill and is characterized by stone walls on the outside (scanted on the lower part to recall the walls of the towers built to resist artillery shots) and typical elements of Tuscan farmhouses on the inside, such as wooden beams and terracotta floors.
