Things to do in San Miniato, Italy

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 view from the villa is spectacular. The roads in and out take a bit of getting used to but other than that, no complaints. The owners were more than helpful. A very enjoyable time had by all.

Loredana and Massimo were wonderful hosts and were very welcoming. It was very hot during our 2 weeks so the large pool was a godsend.The typical Tuscan house was large and cool. The village was a short walk across the fields with a nice little bar and pizzeria. A 10 to 15min drive to the nearest supermarket at Montaione was convenient. We had excursions to Florence, San Gimignano, Certaldo and Castelfiorentino (great market) all with their differing attractions. Many days were spent either at the villa or close to it, exploring the local area. The wildlife was very interesting, especially when coming back at night! If you've never come accross glow worms, wild boar, little owls, deer and porcupines in your back garden, this is the place for you. This was our third visit to Tuscany - this villa was the best of them, and was very reasonably priced compared to many others. Highly recommended! Williams Family, Wales
