About the property

Graceful and welcoming agritourism on a small hill among vineyards and olive trees a short distance from San Gimignano (3 km). The building's center consists of an old lookout tower built in 1200 to help defend the city. The complex is made up of 3 apartments and a large outdoor area with pool. It is surrounded by the fields of the farm, where the owners themselves produce organic wine, grappa and extra virgin olive oil (available for direct sale at the farm). The apartments are furnished in rustic, Tuscan style.

During the week it is possible to take advantage of a free visit to the farm (winery and vineyards) and taste the wine, extra virgin olive oil and grappa.

Ideal for discovering the beauties of the Tuscan countryside, the property offers tranquility and relaxation just a stone's throw away from San Gimignano's historic towers. Access to the property is via a short stretch of unpaved road in good condition. Parking within the grounds.

Review for stay from 02 June 2014 to 07 June 2014

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed at Podere La Marronaia -- my wife and I, and another couple. The setting in the vineyard and olive grove is spectacular. You can see the town of San Gimingnano on top of the next hill. The apartment has two bedrooms, one downstairs and one loft up a steep circular staircase. There is a large dining / living room with seating for six for eating. There are a lot of pots and pans, dishes, tableware, etc. Wifi is not available in the apartment itself, but it works outside. There is a small TV with all Italian stations. A pool is available for swimming. The owner, Silvia, is very pleasant and was always available for our questions and to provide help. Her English is very good. One afternoon she invited us to taste the wines and olive oil made at her farm.

Review for stay from 21 July 2012 to 04 August 2012

  • 4 of 5

Onze ervaringen zijn goed. We zijn zeer tevreden van de goede ontvangst van Silvia en Luigi. Dit zijn warme mensen die heel vlot met hun gasten kunnen omgaan.

De rust, de ligging, de verre zichten zijn ongelooflijk !

We hebben genoten van het grote zwembad. De ligstoelen zijn van iets minder kwaliteit zodat ze dan sneller stuk gaan. Ook de parasols rond het zwembad zijn regelmatig stuk door de regelmatige snel opkomende wind. Misschien is een kleine patio (schaduwterras) hier een oplossing zodat parasols niet meer nodig zouden zijn. De houten planken rond het zwembad zouden dringend een onderhoudsbeurt nodig hebben. Dit zijn maar kleine minpuntjes waar snel aan gewerkt kan worden. Voor de rest was de vakantie op Podere Marronaia SUPER alsook hun heerlijke wijnen !

[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] Our experiences are good. We are very satisfied with the welcome we received from Silvia and Luigi. These are very warm people who can cope easily with their guests.

The rest, the location, the distant views are incredible!

We enjoyed the large pool. The chairs at the pool are of less quality so they quickly brake. The parasols around the pool are regularly broken by the regular burgeoning wind. Perhaps a small patio (shaded terrace) would be a solution so umbrellas would no longer be required. The wooden planks around the pool would urgently require servicing. These are but minor hiccups that can be fixed easily. For the rest, the holiday at Podere Marronaia was SUPER as well as their delicious wines!

Mooie podere op een fantastische locatie vlakbij San Gimignano! Ongelooflijk mooi landgoed met een schitterend panorama. Rustige omgeving en gunstige ligging om uitstappen te maken naar Siena, Volterra, Firenze... Zeer gastvrije eigenaars. Proef zeker eens hun lekkere wijn en olijfolie. Bovendien een aanrader voor poezenliefhebbers!

Quiet environment and convenient location for day excursions to Siena, Volterra, Florence ... Very friendly owners. Be sure to taste their wine and olive oil. Moreover, a must for cat lovers!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The property was charming and the setting was beautiful. The location was perfect for visits to the village of San Gimignano and also for day trips to other places we wanted to see, including Pisa, Florence and Sienna. I would love to go back!

Review for stay from 25 September 2010 to 02 October 2010

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for ourselves and our nephew and niece who were traveling with us. We were looking for a comfortable space with adequate privacy, as well as convenience to local sites. This place was perfect.

First, the host and hostess, Luigi and Silvia, are delightful. They were friends by the end of our week. The farm is just two minutes from San Gimignano, and located conveniently for easy access to Volterra, Siena, Florence and beyond. The setting is great--vineyards and olive groves, a great patio, a pool (too cool to use while we were there, but lovely).

If you like cats the place is great, because there is a large family of kitties. They never got in the way.

Make sure you visit the wine shop in San Gimignano or Volterra that is run by Podere la Marronaia.

We will go back! Thank you.
