Fortezza de Cortesi is a very old historical dwelling documented from the X century on a part of the
medieval pilgrim route of the Via Francigena. It has been also a very important
cultural humanistic center during the Renaissance known all over Europe with Castrum Cortesianum name. It hosted many personalities of the time, including Paolo and Lorenzo de’ Medici, the Dukes of Ferrara and Urbino, Pico della Mirandola, Angelo Poliziano, Marsilio Ficino, the cardinal Alessandro Farnese ( Pope Paul III) and Giuliano della Rovere ( Pope Julius II), and numerous other important members of the political and cultural elite of the time, giving the castrum Cortesianum connotations markedly cultural and public policy.
For this reason it is mentioned in the texts of Italian literature.
Here guests can experience
the charm of old Tuscan country houses
kept unchanged in the common spaces and bedrooms and its
bathrooms, all different from each other, but all witnesses
the style and fascination of antiquity. You will find the Fortezza de’ Cortesi an enchanting and charming dwelling dedicated to those wanting an exclusive holiday returning to “chill out” in total relaxation after a day out visiting the most enchanting sites of Tuscan art and culture, whether Florence, Siena, Certaldo, Volterra, Pisa, Lucca or Montalcino and the sea coast, all far up one hour and half from the property.

My name is Cledy and it is my belief that places call to us. I know you understand what I mean. In 1994, I moved with my family from Milan to Tuscany. I acquired in the San Gimignano countryside some ruins which are located in one of the most important cultural italian site of european wide appeal of the Renaissance age, mentioned in the textbooks of Italian literature. When I arrived to this tiny hamlet named Monti located over a hill surrounded by a panoramic view of the towers of San Gimignano, I didn’t know its reputation. I was captivated by the resistance of the abandoned walls, in total decline, eviscerated by the negligence and assaulted by nature which aggressively tried to confirm its predominance without success. I fell in love and in a moment my vision was clear of how this magical place could be brought back to life. A strictly conservative refurbishment without any external financial contribution was a great effort. By choice, not easy, but to me necessary for the total respect of the place, nothing was modified from the original structure, both inside and outside. Despite this, the view of the same landscape admired by Leonardo and Michelangelo,the vineyards on the hills and cypresses, the stunning San Gimignano skyline, the rediscovered rhythm of seasons in the countryside, supported me and my husband. Finally, after a nine years restoration, the humanistic center named Castrum Cortesianum, property of Paolo Cortesi, excellent humanist, secretary and briefs of Pope Julius II, was able to regain the dignity of the past as well as its recovery was considered a crazy venture. As a matter of fact the hamlet, located on a variant of the Francigena road, it probably has Etruscan origins and has an older documented source dated back to the tenth century. I should be happy to provide to my guests all the historical references. I live here, in this place full of wonderful energies, a secular but spiritual retreat which regenerates body and soul. I am settled in one of the two buildings I own, while in the other one I established a charming agritourism attached to an eco-friendly farm which produces the precious saffron DOP (esteemed during the Medieval time even in the markets of Alexandria of Egypt and the first economic resource of San Gimignano, which permitted the construction of the famous towers), extra virgin olive oil, aromatic herbs and seasonal vegetables which I use in my agritourism for special dinners and hand made pasta cooking classes and to supply the restaurant my husband manages in the center of San Gimignano. I 've got a past of actress and in the present I'm involved in artistic projects. I love to cook, read, French movies, music. I talk to plants and I couldn't live without pets (I have a dog and 4 cats).
