Well kept gardens with lawns, mature trees and flowering plants surround the house, and there is a large swimming pool (12m x 6m) which overlooks the olive groves is an ideal spot for relaxing and enjoying a cooling dip. Guests are free to wander the estate where there are over 10 acres of private land, ideal for enjoyable walks in the country, amazingly medieval San Gimignano with its historic monuments, art galleries and wide selction of shops and restaurants is just waiting to be explored only 10 minutes walk away. The panoramic area where there is the swimming pool extends almost until the alternative road of the town. Magno on the ground floor of the villa, is delightfully furnished to a very high standard including many antique pieces and family heirlooms. A wood burning fireplace forms the centrepiece of the comfortable lounge. The large kitchen invites you to prepare delicious meals and has two large arched glass doors opening on to the garden. There are two characteristic bedrooms which also open onto side garden areas. The private garden which surrounds Magno enjoys a fine panorama of the countryside. Furnished with sun umbrella, table and chairs and immaculately maintained, it is the perfect spot for dining alfresco, or just enjoying a chilled glass of 'Vernaccia di San Gimignano' whilst taking in the view and enjoying the essence of the Tuscan countryside.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for one week. The owners live on site and were helpful but discreet. The gardens are lovely with pomegranate trees, olive groves, grape vines all growing near the house. The kitchen is rather basic (no conventional oven) and could do with some more crockery. The pool is lovely and as long as the other family is ok there is no problem. San Gimignano is just a short walk away. Marvellous.

Ruime eetkeuken.Het uitzicht bij het zwembad op het Toscaanse landschap is erg moio. De eigenaar is vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Lovely apartment and gardens

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment set in olive woods with good size ( unheated ) swimming pool, behind electronic gates. Apartment is short walk uphill into San Gimignano and include all the facilities we needed for our week (well fitted kitchen). Owners could not have been more helpful, with advice on parking in Sienna, scenic route to Pisa. Highly recommended and would be good for groups f taking both apartments.

fantastischer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Waren mit Freunden eine Woche in dieser Unterkunft. Bei Ankunft war alles fertig, blitzsauber geputzt und eine Menge von nützlichen Kleinigkeiten bereits vorhanden. Die im Nebenhaus wohnenden Eigentümer waren sehr reizend und hilfsbereit. Jedes Schlafzimmer verfügt über ein eigenes Badezimmer. Nach San Gimingnano sind es 15 Minuten zu Fuß.
