The Tolly estate has over 70 hectares of farmland including vineyards and olive groves and produces a variety of excellent wines, olive oil and other local produce, all of which can be tasted during the optional dinners the owners usually organise twice a week. At the centre of the estate is the beautiful rambling 19th Century farmhouse, which has been completely restored and now forms seven lovely apartments. Original characteristics such as beamed ceilings, and terracotta floors have all been retained whilst modern facilities including air conditioning, flat screen satellite television, ensuite bathrooms and internet connection ensure your comfort. Close to the farmhouse is a large beautifully positioned swimming pool (12m x 6m) complete with a round children's section. From the pool, and indeed from all corners of the estate, are stunning views of the countryside and amazing San Gimignano perched on the hillside. Tolly 3 is a characteristic apartment on two floors. The ground floor consists of a living area with dining table and chairs, settee (which can convert to a single bed on request), satellite television and fully equipped kitchen area. Stairs lead to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms and two ensuite shower rooms. The patio door of the living room opens onto the apartments terrace area in the garden which is furnished with table and chairs and there is a large barbeque in the grounds for guests use With the sun setting over the hills and the lovely views, it's tempting to dine alfresco in the garden with a good bottle of the estate's wine, or try one of the excellent selection of restaurants in the town. Tolly estate is a perfect location from which to explore the area with gorgeous San Gimignano being just over 2 kms down the road, and the rest of Tuscany's many beautiful sights such as the Renaissance city of Florence and Siena with its shell shaped piazza easily accessible by road or by bus and rail links from Poggibonsi.

Just didn’t want to go away in the end
We spent two amazing weeks at apartment Tolly 3 last summer and we really are satisfied about it all. Everything was like we wished and very comfortable. The apartment is very clean, furnished with taste and tidy, with a splendid view just around us. Some things we really appreciated were the pool, near which we enjoyed to sun bath and the BBQ. We never had such a relaxing and pleasant holiday, we just didn’t want to go away in the end.
Also, thank you to the La Bella Toscana Agency’s Staff for helping us with everything and for being so professional and available.
Nicely appointed apartment in a lovely location close to San Gimignano, so very handy for visiting the town which is very beautiful.
We did a lot of sightseeing, and the place was a good base as very centrally located in Tuscany so all we wanted to see was close. We enjoyed the many excellent restaurants in the area, and relaxing around the swimming pool. All in all an excellent holiday.
