History

The origins of Cellole date back nearby 1000 years. In the first phase of its history Cellole was a hermitage, the name Cellole is of latin origins and indicates the presence of a small chapel. In the middle ages Cellole was a small fortified hamlet, its existence is easily verified mostly thanks to a notary register which goes back to 1238 and permits us to identify about 17 famlies living within its walls. At this date Cellole was under the dominion of a local landlord.

Only in the 14th century the entire castle was purchased by the wealthy Florentine Family Gianfigliazzi who were associated with banking activities mostly money lending who were also the patrons of the Church of Sant′Andrea.

The 5th July 1799 was a glorious day in the history of Cellole when Sant′Andrea became a priory, and the height of its glory in 1858 there are records which show that it had a congregation of 237 people. Abandoned in the nearly 1960′s when farmers fled the countryside to find work sold to a series of owners who allowed it to total ruin.

The present owners purchased the ruin in late 1987 and spent several years rebuilding it to its former glory adding all the modern comforts whilst keeping the traditional terracotta floors and beamed ceilings which are typical of Tuscan houses and furnishing it with antiques and traditional country furniture.

SUGGESTIONS

Our Suggestions

Geographically speaking Cellole is excellently placed approximately half way between the reinassance cities of Florence and Siena less than half an hour drive to both. It is in the heart of the Chianti wine region and S.Gimignano, Certaldo alto and Colle val d′Elsa to name but a few of the smaller jewels of Tuscany are nearby making this an ideal centre for art and history lovers. Lucca and Pisa and Arezzo are an hour away
