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 villa is decorated in true Tuscan style and is immensely clean. Lorenzo and Marie are fantastic hosts and nothing was too much for them. Their local knowledge will ensure that you have a problem free holiday. Five stars all the way.

Our first impressions were WOW, and the family proceeded to show us around and explain the workings of the property. After they left, we were treated to a Tuscan thunder storm which made the experience even more special! We found the property very functional, there were 4 of us in the party and there was plenty of space to give each couple a sense of privacy, and breakfasting on the terrace each morning (thankfully the weather did improve after that first day!) was a lovely start to the day. We also found the location to be ideal for travelling into Pisa and Florence, we drove to Pisa (about 45 mins) and took the train from Cascina (about a 20 minute drive) into Florence as we thought parking would be difficult there. The train service was very efficient and around 6 euros each way for the 1 hr journey, a recommended stress-free way to see the city. We'd also highly recommend the town of Lucca (around 35 mins), and Volterra (around 1 hr) to add to your itinerary. The local village of Buti was just ok, fine for getting essentials like bread and milk, but quite limited for eating out. We did however find a little gem of a restaurant called Il Maggi, just off the main square in Buti, reasonably priced and the food was stunning. We'd also recommend one just a 10 minute drive towards Bientini, called La Valetta, a superb family-style restaurant with sensational pizza. All in all we had a fabulous stay and we would highly recommend the villa for anyone seeking peace, quiet and tranquility during their holiday.

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
