Located in the upper part of the tiny paved village of San Miniato in the Tuscan Hills, this 16th century protected estate named UMAMA, has gone through seven years of renovation before being ready to welcome the first guests. Italian creative director Giovanni Settesoldi in
duo with architect Gabriele Evangelisti, developed the project with main focus on keeping all the original architecture, fully opening the rear facades and creating a secret swimming pool.
Spread over an area of 230sq.m, the estate was transformed into a luxury vacation home available to book via Airbnb or Home Boutiques.

“During the restoration works I loved to spend the evenings alone in the house to imagine how it would transform. I placed a chair in the middle of the room between the dust and tools, and placed empty boxes to shape the spaces “ says Giovanni Settesoldi
