La Grancia di Montisi
“La Grancia” is a hamlet located in the heart of the Sienese? countryside, in a hilly area with olive groves, which alternate with small vineyards and woods. Grancia is the name used to identify those large fortified farms – with large barns, cellars and olive pressing machines? – that the Ospedale della Scala in Siena presumably built towards the end of 1200. Grancia di Montisi with its fortified structure was essentially created by the Ospedale and was built after 1295, the year in which Simone Cacciaconti, Lord of Montisi, left to the Ospedale all the possessions he had in that hamlet. In 1775, the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo ordered the sale of all the Ospedale’s properties, including the Grancia di Montisi, which was purchased in 1778 by Jacopo Mannucci Benincasa, the family that still owns it.
A site full of history and art, ideal to celebrate your unforgettable ceremony.
Today the outdoor area of Borgo La Grancia is composed by ancient courtyards, a large and green garden with terraces where we can set up an exclusive Banquet, an open lawn with an infinity pool on the beautiful valley for a Country-chic setting, the welcome cocktail, the cutting of the wedding cake.
The ample available spaces and the multiplicity of possible “scenery” (historic?? courtyards, large gardens, pool area, small nineteenth-century theater) make this location particularly suitable for organizing weddings, parties, anniversaries and cocktails.
A perfect set for your Engagement Shoot.
The small, completely renovated 19th century theater, another jewel in the crown of what is now the Grancia di Montisi, makes the complex particularly suitable for organizing concerts and conventions.
The charming historical residence and the sober elegance of its spaces will give your ceremony a romantic and suggestive atmosphere and will make this important event unforgettable.
The structure is completed by a small church dedicated to St. Catherine of Siena, which can host intimate religious celebrations.
The newly-weds and some guests can enjoy a well-deserved rest in the four prestigious apartments: “Il Quartiere” in the heart of Grancia, “I Gerani” overlooking the historic courtyards, “Il Glicine” and “I Girasoli” in the Western part of the hamlet.
The owners will be happy to welcome you and your guests, and assist you with a professional staff for the perfect success of your most beautiful day.
