A family history dating back to the 16th century

The owners of this beautiful, historic villa is the Pometty Family. They are direct descendants of the Socini family, well-known bankers, notaries and theologians since the 14th century, and the Ricci family, a wealthy middle class farming family. In the 16th century the Church, in response to their anti-Trinitarian doctrine, confiscated the properties purchased by the brothers Lelio and Fausto Socini.

Centuries passed until, in 1919, Livio Socini proudly bought back the part of the property in the municipality of Trequanda. The last member of the Socini family was the current owner's  extremely strict great-grandmother, Maria. In the early seventies Maria encouraged her son to pursue his “rural” dreams and he open one of the very first “agriturismi” in the whole of Tuscany!

The Ricci family, instead, originally hailed from Pistoia and came to Buonconvento in the second half of the 1800s when Luigi, a supporter of the Carbonari independence movement, took refuge in the nearby Monte Oliveto Maggiore abbey to escape arrest. At the beginning of the 20th century, Raffaello Ricci purchased the property in the municipalities of Asciano and Buoconvento from the noble Piccolomini family.

Through perseverance and determinations eventually all the properties were back in the family. In the past ten years, the two talented sisters Carlotta and  Vittoria have taken over the running of the estate, which was pieced back together with enormous effort and hard work in order to restore the identity of to what it was in the past and at the same time looking to the future.
