Overview

About the property

Bedrooms: 9, bathrooms: 5, sleeps 18.

Villa Tristano Grande is a beautiful villa of 360 square meters (about 3875

square feet), for eighteen people, with pool, garden, patio and terraces, and a

splendid view over the valley and of San Gimignano.

It is located on the summit of a small hill, the slopes of which are cultivated

with olive trees and vineyards. The villa is in an isolated position, and is

completely surrounded by tall pine trees.

Villa Tristano Grande is situated halfway between Florence and Siena, and is

just 15 km (a little more than 9 miles) from San Gimignano.

Villa Tristano Grande has nine bedrooms, of which five are double-bedded and

four have two single beds each, and six bathrooms with tub or shower.

The villa is part of a Tuscan farming estate, the oldest part of which dates

back to around the year 1200.

Actually, the farm is a working agricultural estate that produces excellent

extra-virgin olive oil, Chianti wine and white wine, vinsanto and liquor. You

can taste and purchase all of these products on the estate.

You will find the exterior of Villa Tristano Grande extremely graceful: you will

see a long building, which has at one corner an elegant tower of red brick, with

large arched windows. At the top of the tower, there is a covered terrace.

The house is surrounded by a green lawn, edged with a row of tall umbrella pines.

In the shadow of the pines on this lawn, there are benches, and a peaceful area

equipped with stonework tables and benches.

Two stone wells, and vases overflowing with red geraniums, decorate the façade

of the building.

A long brickwork porch, which runs along the entire side of the house, opens

onto the lawn. This porch holds a beautiful terrace, which is overlooked by the

bedrooms located on the first floor. Another long loggia runs on the first floor,

as well, along the principal façade of the villa. The glass doors of three of

the bedrooms open onto this loggia.

The porch, which is 120 square meters (about 1290 square feet), is equipped with

tables and chairs, and connects the living room to the garden. This will be your

favorite place to breathe in the fresh country air and enjoy meals outdoors.

Just a little way away, on the lawn, you will also find an area with a stonework

barbecue.

The swimming pool is located among the olive trees, a few meters below the

villa, in a panoramic position.

Lying beside the pool in the sunshine, you will see all around you the green of

the olive trees, and in the distance, the outlines of the gentle hills

punctuated with the stone-towered hilltowns for which Tuscany is famous.

The pool is 5 X 10 meters (about 16 X 32 feet), and around it you will find

umbrellas and sun-lounging chairs. It is open from mid-May to mid-September.

Villa Tristano Grande has a living space that you will find fascinating. It is

on the ground floor, and has doors that offer access to the porch and the

garden.

You will enter into a great room of 150 square meters (about 1615 square feet),

covered by an historic vaulted brickwork ceiling supported by great arches, also

constructed of bricks.

In the center of this room you will find a large dining table. At the two ends

of the room, you will find at one end a reading area with bookcases, and at the

other an area with a large fireplace, armchairs and sofas. You will have

abundant space at your disposal to enjoy your vacation with a great group of

friends!

The furnishings are in the simple and welcoming style of the Tuscan countryside.

On the ground floor, you will also find the spacious kitchen, which has a glass

door offering access to the garden.

In the kitchen you will find five burners, refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher

and fireplace. There is also a washing machine and a toilet.

The bedrooms are all on the first floor; they are spacious, and have views of

Val D’Elsa or of the olive groves. In the distance, one can see the towers of

San Gimignano. There are six bathrooms, of which five have showers, and one has

a bath tub with shower head.

Villa Tristano Grande is equipped with central heating and parking.

Guests will have access to a telephone.

Staying at Villa Tristano Grande, you will be nearby the most characteristic

towns of Tuscany, beginning with San Gimignano and Monteriggione.

Wherever you go, you will be welcomed with the relaxed friendliness that has

long been one of Tuscany’s most appealing characteristics. As well as enjoying

history and nature, you will find small restaurants where you can eat the

excellent Tuscan cuisine prepared in-house, and drink the wonderful wines of the

area.

The nearest town is Poggibonsi, 4 km (two and a half miles) away, where you

will find the bus stop, the railway station, and the nearest shops and

restaurants.

From Poggibonsi, one hour of travel by train will bring you to Florence, while

in half an hour you can reach Siena.

The closest airport is Florence.
