Make a holiday rental home or villa in San Miniato, Italy your home away from home

The tiny medieval village of San Miniato, Italy, lies in the lower Arno Valley in Tuscany. Mid-way between Pisa and Florence, San Miniato has long had an important strategic location, the resulting wealth of which is still clearly visible in the historic buildings in the village centre.

Things to do in San Miniato, Italy

There are some beautiful sites to within the village of San Miniato. The Cathedral and its ancient Bell Tower are well worth exploring, especially due to the great range of impressive and important artistic masterpieces contained within the cathedral. The Palazzo dei Vicari and the Museum of Sacred Art also stand among the finest sights in San Miniato, Italy. San Miniato is sometimes referred to as the ‘City of Theatre’ as many of San Miniato’s medieval centres host many theatrical performances throughout the summer months. There are festivals throughout the year.

The imposing medieval architecture isn’t the main draw to self catering San Miniato accommodation though. The hills around the village actually produce a staggering 25% of Italy’s most prestigious export, white truffles. The White Truffle fair makes November an incredible time to visit the village, and although San Miniato villa rentals become very hard to find, if you can rent a San Miniato property during the fair, it truly is worth it.

One of the best ways to get to know San Miniato and the surrounding area is by walking or riding the Truffle Trail. Information on the Truffle Trail can be found in the English speaking San Miniato Tourist Information offices, located in the centre of the old town. The town’s ancient agricultural importance means that good food and wine still play a large part in the village’s culture. The wines, olives and artichokes are famous in San Miniato, who has historically kept the finest produce for their own markets, rather than selling them internationally.

The design & layout of the property is such a great use of the space, the villa was really well equipped, the bed is very comfortable & all linen etc is as anyone would need & the spec of the property is very high. The view from the terrace is actually better than photos can show. The little hamlet in which it stands has been beautifully restored to be an excellent isolated place but near other properties. The pool was great - especially as there were not many properties occupied when we were there, in September - and Roberto, who welcomed us on arrival & checked on us occasionally through the week, was most helpful & charming. As throughout the whole booking & staying process, was Colm, the owner - even though he was actually in Dublin. It is a perfect base for what is perfect Tuscan scenery & tourist spots within an hour or so- but we enjoyed the walking too. We found the Via Francigena, which we had no idea of until we arrived. What a lovely stretch it is there between Gambassi Terme & San Gimignano. A perfect week. Many thanks. Phil

The shared inifinity pool was very attractive and suitable for all abilities of swimmer. There was plenty of seating around the pool to enjoy the scenery.The recycling arrangements are a bit complicated but it is good to know they take it seriously. The mosquitoes restricted our evenings on the terrace, however. We were lucky that there was no one in the apartment next to us whilst we were there as the outside seating areas were right next to each other. We left some information on local supermarkets as there was no obvious information available in the apartment other than some leaflets and maps of things to see by previous occupants. We did thoroughly enjoy the holiday and had a very relaxing time exploring the local area.
