The entire property remains under the protection of environmental heritage of the provinces of Siena and Grosseto because of significant scenic interest. The origins of the farmhouse are not certain: it is not clear whether in the past it was a Customhouse on the borders between the Republic of Siena and the Papal States or, in view of its architecture, if it was a military settlement.
