COTTAGE WITH STUNNING VIEWS IN REBUILT ANCIENT HAMLET NEAR SAN GIMIGNANO

Gambassi Terme Apartment Rental Photos and Description

15 minute drive to San Gimignano. Ideally located to explore Tuscany. Volterra, Siena, Florence, Pisa and the Chianti region are all within easy reach.

The village is a haven of tranquillity, surrounded by woods and meadows abundant with wild flora and fauna.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed

We are an Irish couple and love all things Italian!

Colm Begley purchased this apartment in 2006

In 2006 I heard that a group of local people planned to restore a tiny ancient ruined village. I went to visit the village and was immediately enchanted by its tranquillity and stunning views.

We took a leap of faith and purchased a heap of stones and broken timbers at the end of the village.

Now seven years later the village has been restored to its former beauty.

The reconstruction of the village was subject to strict Italian heritage laws. All original materials were re-used and other materials were salvaged from local ruins. The building work had to be carried out using traditional building methods.

The 'apartment' is actually a small house at the quietest end of the village, with its own roof and with windows on three sides!

The best feature is a large private terrace with stunning views across the valley to the ancient hilltop town of Volterra, with its many towers.

COMFORTABLE & RELAXING

Comfortable & Relaxing
  • 5 of 5
We had a delightful, restful week at the apartment in June. It has been built and equipped to a high standard so the stay was very comfortable. The village was very quiet and for much of the time we had the pool to ourselves. The views in all directions are simply stunning. Many picturesque Tuscan villages are only a short drive away.
Roberto was very helpful and on hand to ensure there were no problems during our visit.

BEAUTIFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay at this apartment. It was beautiful, very clean, and equipped with everything we needed. The location was incredible and the the view over San Giminigano was amazing. The photos don't do it justice!

Roberto was also really friendly and helpful during our stay, even putting up with extremely poor attempts at speaking Italian!! The instructions to get to the apartment were really clear and made it easy to find.

GREAT APARTMENT, WELL EQUIPPED IN A RURAL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was lovely and very well equipped. It is set within a beautiful mediaeval village that has been renovated. It has all the features you would expect in an apartment of this price. The pool is a particular highlight and is set with the beautiful views out over Tuscany. It is very well situated for day trips to Florence, Siena, and other Sienese hill-towns. The owner is always quick to answer questions and is very helpful. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to visit Italy.
