Overview

About the property

Built on a slope, the accommodation is on three floors, all connected by internal staircases, but each floor actually opens on to an area of the garden. Originally a hayloft, the house has been carefully restored by its attentive owners and it is fitted and furnished to an very high standard. Great care has been taken to preserve the original characteristics of the house, such as slanted brick windows in the spacious bedrooms, terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and brick archways, all so typical of Tuscan country architecture. The addition of 3 new shower rooms, one on each floor, and 2 fully equipped kitchens ensure modern comfort, and marry perfectly with the classic furniture. Both living rooms have comfortable sitting areas with settees which can also convert to double beds on request, and the lounge on the ground floor also has a characteristic fireplace, a specially commissioned hand painted mural depicting the beautiful landscape, and arched patio doors which open onto the large patio and garden. Within the well kept grounds close to the house is the large swimming pool (14m x 7m) which is private to Il Vecchio Fienile and has a lovely view over the countryside. The house and its garden is in a lovely position, just off the country road to Ulignano, it is fully enclosed, and has its own parking area. it is only 2km from San Gimignano and its selection of shops and excellent local restaurants, and many of the regions other sights are within easy driving distance. Florence and Siena are both easily accessible via main road and rail links from nearby Poggibonsi, and Volterra, famous for its alabaster production as well as its wealth of historic monuments is only 30km away.

Fabulous property!

  • 4 of 5

The pool area and garden were delightful. The bedrooms were spacious and clean and the owners were extremely welcoming. The house was equipped with everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The only draw back was poor connectivity to wi-fi.

The villa was gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed our recent two week stay at Il Vecchio Fienile.

The villa was gorgeous – one of the best we have ever stayed in - and very spacious, accommodating 8 of us very comfortably when our friends joined us for a week. The couple who looked after the villa were lovely - extremely helpful and very patient with our very limited Italian.

The pool was unanimously one of the highlights of our holiday – a wonderful size allowing proper length-swimming and games of water polo - so many hours were spent keeping cool and enjoying the lovely views. A very relaxing holiday!

We visited San Gimignano almost daily and made a couple of easy excursions to Siena, Piscina Luxor near Monteriggioni, Castellina in Chianti, Florence (by train!), and Volterra. The folder you provided with the villa was extremely helpful in advising how to get to places and recommending restaurants.

We return well rested and will always recommend La Bella Toscana to our friends.

Thank you again.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us. Very centrally located in the Tuscany area. San Gimignano is a wonderful city to be next to. Would have liked air conditioning in the bedrooms. Loved the pool.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an unforgettable holiday at Villa il Vecchio Fienile. The place was better than possible, clean and welcoming. The owners were kind and friendly. The Villa is well furnished and everything was even better than we expected…The swimming pool is amazing and the villa is perfectly located near San Gimignano.

We strongly recommend Villa il Vecchio Fienile. We can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful tranquil spot and villa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weeks stay here. It was in July, so quite hot so the large pool was very well used. It's a shame the view from the pool is covered by the fence, otherwise it would have been perfect. There were two couples staying, which I think is the max I would recommend. It says it can accommodate 6 but you'd have to walk through the extra bedroom to get downstairs. Large and spacious, quite cool inside (especially downstairs) meant we didn't need air conditioning. Handy as you have to pay extra per day for that. Nice well appointed kitchen, with everything you'd need. And a brochure with lots of local information which was great. Very much enjoyed our stay here, a little close to a road but seriously it didn't bother us at all, really no noise from it so don't let that put you off. And it's only 2kms from San Gimignano so really convenient for quick trips. I'd highly recommend this villa if you're looking to stay in this area.
