Overview

About the property

4 Beds / 3 Baths Private pool & garden with large views.15 min to San Gimignano

4 bedroom / 3 bathroom freestanding villa walking distance to town with shops and restaurants. From the pool (7m x 14m; Depth: 1.4m - open: beginning May - beginning October) and garden for your exclusive use the views stretches as far as eye can see over the valley. Plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas are available for you to enjoy the sunny days at your villa. Closer to the kitchen is also found a covered pergola equipped for outdoor dining (with lights) for your panoramic meals.

The villa is immersed in a peaceful setting but it is not remote and it's within easy access to the main sites in Tuscany and walking distance to shops/restaurants. Although your villa enjoys complete privacy, there are a couple of neighboring homes: our Summer home and another one inhabited by quiet local residents.

The bedrooms and the kitchen have air condition with individual control. Wifi internet (please be aware this is not a fixed line connection to download files and up to 2 devices at once - it is very good to browse the internet and read emails).

The garden is wide and private and the pool has a kids section where water is shallow. For your al fresco meals we placed a pergola with lights where to enjoy the magnificent sunsets.

Wonderful Stay - Very Clean Home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tosca was the highlight of our travels in Italy. The home is charming with plenty of room for 8 of us. The home and pool were both very, very clean, and the grass area was perfect for bare feet!

The views from the home are beautiful, and the location is perfect for day trips - we drove to Cinque Terre, Volterra, Pisa, and Lucca.

We paid the owners directly through bank transfer - caused a little concern on our end but once we arrived at the home and were greeted so warmly that concern vanished!

Beyond our imagination wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

A little of our hearts are still there! The beautiful home was so perfect for our family (we have 6 kids). Monica was always available to help. We loved hiking the huge driveway hitting the "Casa Tosca sign" and running back down the hill. Groceries were close by, the home was so clean and filled with everything you could need. My kids say "we miss Casa Tosca!"

Beautiful Views

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully clean Villa with fabulous views of the Tuscan hills. Lovely large swimming pool. The Villa is well equipped for eating in with plenty of crockery, glasses etc. The only negative is the lack of comfortable outside seating to enjoy an evening relaxing, there were two chairs when the villa sleeps 8. We would also have liked to have had a safe to lock up our valuables. It is a very step climb up to the village particularly with temperatures reaching 35 degrees. It is walkable but you will be sweaty when you reach the top, not ideal when going out in the evening for a meal. Also beware of the mosquitoes!

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

Casa Tosca really is a great location in the heart of Tuscany. The interior is perfect, as well as the view, the garden and the pool.

I rate it with 4 instead of 5 stars, as the music/noise coming from the Montaione night club is very loud, disturbing the ones who sleep in the rooms towards it.

excellent villa with lovely views of countryside

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa and well equipped clean and well maintained. Would highly recommend as we are considering renting again next year but for a longer holiday as we were only there for 5 nights whilst my daughter attended a wedding in Florence. Family and Serena lovely and very helpful. You will enjoy.

We are in the wine producing area of Chianti where it is possible to visit the wineries and do wine and olive oil tastings. Our location is so central to explore the main sites in Tuscany within 1 hour drive: Siena, Florence, Lucca, Pisa while San Gimignano and Volterra (20 min away). The pretty ancient village of Montaione is walking distance (5 minutes - steep walk uphill) where there are restaurants and supermarkets. If you are traveling with kids, we have a selection of places to visit in the area: dinasors' park, Pinocchio park, restaurants with live animals... We have prepared a villa book full of ideas for you.
