Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Gambassi Terme - The Hammock with pool
Ideal for 4 persons, 1 big master with en suite bath and 1 twin and extra bath
Our home can host comfortably 4 adult persons, is completely new furnished and well equipped also for all cooking needs, has air condition and mosquito screens consisting in:
2 bedrooms (1 with en suite bath and double sinks, shower and bathtub).
1 master bed with 1.80 m x 2 m.
2 twin beds 1m x 2 m each (can become a double bed).
2 baths (each one with a shower and one has also a bathtub).
1 small but efficiently working open fire place under the “Dwarf’s hat”.
1 fully equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, toaster, hot water kettle and dishwasher,
1 terrace with table and 6 chairs and a sun roof.
1 shared huge infinity pool of 21 x 6.80 meters and landscaped (beach like soft entrance and whirlpool) into the Tuscan nature.
Little garden space with the exclusive right to be used by us and/or our guests of course.
Several acres of land shared with the neighbors of the hamlet
2 parking lots distant from the home, but you can get close to it for emptying the car.
It was originally the hen house and fowl stable, 5 stones and rocks left with a breath taking view. We called it “Dwarf’s house” but then another bed room came to it, “borrowed” from the big house besides and it became a true apartment with quite a big master bed room and its on suite bathroom with bath tub and 80 x 80 shower and a twin bed room for our sons with an extra bath and an 80 x 80 shower and a small sink. It can become a double bed room.
It is now a lovely comfortable apartment, ideal for two to four persons. The new beds are big and comfortable 2 m long, and fitted out with very good mattresses (orthopedically approved). The master bedroom has a little “Romeo and Julia” Balcony in a funny shape which allows you to step outside the walls.
The kitchen is fully equipped and custom made to measure to cope with the niches and edges which gives it an exclusive touch.
For someone who loves to create atmosphere and is fond of illumination, this apartment has the most switches and plugs of the whole Borgo, they said. But I love to live in different sceneries and feel the necessity for different lighting depending on what you are doing. For instance: romantic light, when you drink a glass of good red wine and lose yourself watching the flames in the open fireplace or strong light for reading or preparing dishes.
The outside terrace works like the extension of the kitchen in spring and autumn and is perfect for breakfast and lunch in these seasons and for dinner outside in the summer. It has a beautiful sun roof, but for lunch on a hot summer day you better go 2 m aside and enjoy the shadow of the huge cypress in front of the house, there is also a little bit of refreshing wind and one sleeps the sleep of the true.
The living area sits comfortably 4 persons around the open fire place. The living area is quite small and the open fire place works perfectly and is a remainder of the “dwarf’s house”.
In the living area everything is just on it’s place because it is it’s place, there is no more left. It is cozy and comfortable but not spacious. We preferred a second bed room instead as you usually live outside in Italy and make day trips or sit on the pool side or enjoy the view from our terrace.
All of us are quite tall, so we choose long beds ( 2m x 2m in the master bed room and 2 times 1m x 2 m in the second bed room, which can be put together and make a double bed instead of a twin bed room.

About Claudia Pirazzi
We are living in Florence and saw this ruin and this phantastic place. Working a lot and my husband being a chartered accountant and me a real estate agent and developing assistant of refurbishing and restoring houses, we loved this particular and quiet place and followed each step of the evolution of this Tuscan site.
Claudia Pirazzi purchased this apartment in 2006
Why Claudia Pirazzi chose Gambassi Terme
We found here the right place within nature which is peaceful and beautiful nature outside and sophisticated inside. The builder worked very thouroughly so the house is sane and dry.
The view is breath taking and privacy is given at the same time.
The pool is landscaped and also an attraction because very particular.
What makes this apartment unique
The position within the hamlet has the best views onto the skyline of Volterra in the far West and the night. Privacy and the terrace are unique to live on.The location if you want to see and visit Tuscany is very central and there are many many very good restaurants close by.
Guestbook comments from the manager
..an die Abende in traumhafter Kulisse bei einem Gläschen "Chianti Classico" werden wir uns noch lange erinner. Auch unser Frühstück im Schatten mit dieser Aussicht haben wir genossen.
Ihr Haus hatte alles, was sich Urlauber wünschen. Es ist n.E. das schönste Häuschen im Borgo. Vielen Dank für die schönen Stunden, die wir bei Ihnen verbringen durften.
