About the property

Surrounded by nature, with a big swimming pool.

The beautiful Villa S.Ippolito, in the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by a large garden with swimming pool, has an astonishing charm. The authentic atmosphere and historical value make it a unique place to spend an unforgettable holiday! The Villa (more than 500 square meters) is two floors: at the ground floor there is a large kitchen, a hall, two utility room, three living rooms with fireplace, huge dining room and a bathroom; at the first floor there are 7 bedrooms with private bathrooms + a big living room with frescos, 2 bedrooms and a big bathroom. The house can host 20 people (+ extra beds for children or guests - up to a maximum of 23 people). Outside there are: a large garden where you can also eat, a large terrace, a shaded area under a huge old tree and the large swimming pool (14x7 meters + small pool for children), equipped with sun and shade. The owners (Bicocchi family) will be present to welcome guests and give them all the necessary information. During the stay someone of the family will always be available for any request. There is also the possibility (on request) to have a cook who can cook typical dishes of the Tuscan tradition. The Villa S.Ippolito overlooks the natural park of Monterufoli: forest as far as the eye can see, where you can go hiking, biking or horse riding. In the area there are rivers and thermal springs. The most beautiful art cities of Tuscany (Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Volterra, Florence, etc ...) are within 40 minutes to 1 hour and a half drive. The small villages around (where you can go shopping, eat at the restaurants or take a walk) are charming, although this area of Tuscany hasn't yet been hit by mass tourism, so the prices are reasonable and the atmosphere still "genuine" and authentic. The sea (the beautiful beach of Baratti) is a 50 minute drive. From the house you can make beautiful hikes or bike rides, however it is recommended to have the car. At S.Ippolito (owned by our family for 6 generations) we produce extra virgin olive oil. The area also produces wine of excellent quality and the food is astonishing.

Why Luca Bicocchi chose Pomarance

A holiday at Villa S.Ippolito is unforgettable. This property, built in 1700, has a special atmosphere: surrounded by nature as far as the eye can see, it maintains the (very hard to find nowadays) taste of authentic tuscany.

What makes this villa unique

The location is unique. You don't rent just a house, but an original old villa from XIII century, with a lot of history in it. There are no cars, neighbors or noise, just the countryside. Perfect for big group of people, with kids. You can enjoy a holiday all together in a house that can host you, cook at the big kitchen, with an old fireplace. You can eat all together at the big table in the garden, but also the house gives you the opportunity to find your own private place to relax (at the terrace, or garden, or in one of the beautiful living rooms...). Kids can enjoy a genuine outdoor life, play at the swimming pool, discover the countryside and play in the big garden.

  • 5 of 5

We were 12 adults and 5 children who had the most wonderful and amazing stay one could imagine at Daria´s place. The house was fantastic; it was very large, with a great kitchen. There were lot of places where you could eat together, both inside and outdoors.

The house is situated with a wonderful view over

the valley. The pool was also great; clean, large, and also with a wonderful view over the valley. Everyone was very friendly and helpful; we got a lot of great recomendations on places to visit, which enabled us to find for example some great restaurants, far away from

crowded touristplaces. We especially enjoyed a restaurant called La dispenza, situated beautifully in the countryside. We want to give a lot of thanks to Daria and her family for making our visit so pleasent. We are looking forward to come back to Villa San Ippolito.

Charming, traditional villa with wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in this traditional, charming house. It is well-kept and has absolutely everything to make one feel completely at home. The surroundings are beautiful (hardly another house around) and the garden and huge pool are fantastic! There is even an allotment a couple of minutes walk away where you can pick, at no cost, the ingredients of your dinner... tomatoes, aubergines, corgettes etc! The owners are lovely and even sent my sister, who was getting married, a bouquet of flowers on the big day! Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in beautiful, slightly isolated, surroundings.

A beautiful welcoming farmhouse full of charm

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful old farmhouse with plenty of history, was able to accommodate our group of 18 with plenty of space for everyone. Large comfortable en-suite bedrooms with frescos on some of the ceilings. Signora Daria is very, very welcoming and has an in-depth knowledge of the area which she is happy to share. Excellent recommendations for restaurants in the vicinity.

Plenty of shaded areas in the garden for those who prefer not to be in the sun and a large swimming pool with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. The kitchen is amazing and is very well equipped. Pomarance, the closest town has everything that one needs, including an amazing ice cream cafe!! The surrounding area is beautiful and close to many interesting towns such as Volterra, San Giminiano, Sienna, Florence and the seaside is only about an hour's drive.

Most importantly one feels that one is at home rather than in a rented property.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We had a amazing holiday at this wonderful place. We were 10 adults and 13 kids and there were lots of room and space for everybody.

The day after we arrived, we had a cock to prepare the meal for us. It was the best Italien meal ever.

The hostes were very helpful and when I needed a doctor and texted Tommaso, he sended right away Roberto (who is the garden man, the cleaner, the cock, I think he can do everything) who helped booking af doctor appointment and drove me as well.

There is a stunning vegetable garden, where we could go pick up our vegetable.

The house, the rooms, the surroundings, the kitchen with the fireplace, the pool area, everything was so beautiful and I will love to come again.

Séjour de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Pour les amoureux des grands espaces, des vieilles maisons de famille qui ont une âme, de la tranquillité et de la sérénité des jolis coins perdus dans les collines métallifères : bienvenue à S Ippolito ! Clemente, le propriétaire, est disponible, chaleureux et accueillant : il nous a fait partager son huile, les légumes du potager et son amour de la région. Les jardins comme la piscine sont beaux et très bien entretenus. Les femmes de Montecerboli proposent une cuisine typique à domicile, succulente, à ne rater sous aucun prétexte ! De très belles visites peuvent être effectuées aux alentours, mais demandent un certain temps de trajet. Une maison ancienne spacieuse confortable pour un grand groupe, dans laquelle chacun trouve facilement à s'isoler, et où il est toutefois aisé de cuisiner pour 23 personnes et de réunir tout le monde à table. On reviendra !
