Overview

About the property

Farmhouse apartment, sleeps 4/5 Tuscany hills among woods and ancient villages

Fattoria San Paolo is a Farm House among the hills of Central Tuscany. Since we saw it for the first time we imagined a new future for this old and beautiful (but completely ruined!) place and we started renovating it. It took about 3 years of work, but now it is as beautiful as it was. In the farm we produce organic extravirgin olive oil. Since 2009 the farmhouse is open for guests (with 3 apartments and 4 lofts). Our swimming-pool is an organic one (no chemicals in water) and looks like a natural pond. Our guests are welcome to swim together with frogs!

Why should you choose Fattoria San Paolo? One thing is our focus on low environmental impact.

Our most important hallmark is our organic swimming-pool. It is a big pond-featured setting, with really low environmental impact. This works with phitodepuration, no chemicals. We produce electricity for the circulation pumps with sun panels and we use water from a natural spring (located in the property) to refill the pool.

Another reason to stay at Fattoria San Paolo is that it is in central position for Tuscany exploration. You can choose several nice day- adventures, both discovering small villages or visiting the most famous art cities. A day-trip to the beaches is also easily possibile.

Beautiful, quiet, relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The property is so beautiful and the pool was wonderful. Our rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. It was incredibly quiet, and was a great break from our stay in Italian cities. You must have a car here as nothing is close. Chiara was a gracious host.

Lovely accommodation in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

An idyllic, peaceful location and very friendly hosts. Our three children spent hours swimming and wildlife spotting in the natural pool.The accommodation is spacious and clean. There are plenty of beautiful spots to sit and relax outside, listening to the frogs singing! The surrounding area is very pretty with plenty of hillside villages to explore. It's a bit of a drive to the Tuscan cities such as Florence and Sienna but it was worth it for the peace and quiet.

Classic traditional and airy fattoria

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property, Chiara and her husband have renovated the farmhouse in a traditional style with all the modern necessities, the appartment was large clean and airy. The setting is lovely with views across the fields, the natural pool is very large and surrounded by Waterlilles and frogs and aquatic life, the water is clear and filtered, and there are boardwalks to jump in from or simply lounge on. Their own pizzeria is open at the weekends where some of the best pizza we had can be enjoyed in the restaurant with their own olive oil, the prices are very good and the hospitality very friendly. If you are looking for a holiday in natural surroundings, great facilities in a lovely location for exploring Tuscany this is it.

Great family farmhouse in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Great family-sized farmhouse in the heart of Tuscany. Plenty of room for my family of 5. We used it as a base camp for daily touring of sites around Tuscany such as Lucca, Pisa, San G. We loved the natural pool and found it a great place to cool off and relax after a long hot day of driving and sightseeing. Unfortunately the restaurant on site was closed while we were there but we found a great restaurant about 5 minutes away. We would also go the local supermarket to get food and groceries for times when we didn't feel like going out to eat. Owner was very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. Would highly recommend.

Fattorio San Paulo

  • 5 of 5

The listing description and the photos cannot do justice to the Fattorio San Paulo. The setting is breathtaking, the apartment and the farmhouse beautifully furnished and the pool a delight. Our family had the most wonderful holiday - none of us wanted to leave! The pool is very large and my children were in all day, swimming and taking photos of frogs and newts. Chiara was the perfect host - so friendly and charming, any request wasn't too much bother. The pizzas in the restaurant were superb - wonderful to have a few steps away from the apartment. The holiday was spent either at the pool or exploring the medieval villages or further afield to Sienna and Florence. We can't recommend this property enough -thank you Chiara and family for a simply perfect holiday!

The property is 3 Km from Montecastelli Pisano, a medieval village with Romanic Church. Fattoria San Paolo is very much in the countryside, the closest road is 800 mt. farway. Anyway, it is possible to reach towns and villages around in 20-25 min driving (Pomarance, Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, Casole D'Elsa, Radicondoli).

Other Activities: hot-air ballooning
