Things to do in San Miniato, Italy

There are some beautiful sites to within the village of San Miniato.

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.

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 property itself, The Hammock was exactly the standard as show in the photos so were not disappointed. The view and the pool exceeded our expectations and ticked all members of families boxes including the teenagers. We mixed the days with relaxing by the pool and visiting the local hill top towns all which had their own character. I would definitely consider returning and would highly recommend the property. Claudia, the owner and Fabio were very attentive throughout the booking and greeting process. Thank you for letting us share in your wee piece of paradise.

Colm is a most charming and obliging host and La Terazza is a very well appointed and beautifully situated within a well maintained converted hamlet.
