The Casa Prospero Apartments are part of an old hamlet dating back to the seventeenth century. The hamlet was once used as a shelter for the shepherds and the farmers who worked in the properties. The hamlet is made by several rural homes that, although they have all been renovated, preserve the typical character of the old walled country houses.
The hamlet is located in a beautiful position, surrounded by the greenery, with a splendid view on Mount Amiata and the Ombrone Valley.
