Le Antiche Mura is a historical property in the medieval village of Semproniano (GR), conveniently located in northern Maremma between the green slopes of Mount Amiata and the natural spa of Saturnia. Recently renovated respecting original materials and techniques, Le Antiche Mura is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday that combines the charm of traditions and the modern comforts, which will make your stay unforgettable.
Four bedrooms, two single and two double: four different styles inspired by the original decorations, entirely hand-painted. Each room has a private bathroom with shower, a desk, a wardrobe, TV, and wireless internet connection. Our guests have access to the kitchen, the dining room, the fireplace hall, a comfortable parlour, the library, and the secret garden.
Le Antiche Mura derives its name from the location: the building, originally built in the 15th century, rests on the old circle of walls next to the Romanesque church of San Vincenzo. The secret garden, unique in its genre within the old hamlet, is in fact a sort of ledge sustained by the walls. The building has a long and prestigious history, whose signs are visible today: in the Middle Ages it was a community hospital, an orphanage, and the Trinitarian friars’ lodging. An anthropomorphic capital – which overlooks what was probably the place for the baby hatch – recalls the old function of the building. Yet, the place was important in the 19th-century history of Semproniano as well: there were established both the Philharmonic Society “I Perseveranti” (1877) – literally “those who persevere” – and the workers’ Mutual Aid Society (1892). Also, we are reminded of the long history of the building by the old Franciscan emblem that stands out over the garden door, which inspired our logo.
