Further Details:

Tuscany can rightly claim to have just about everything - Italy's greatest collection of art, classical architecture, beautiful countryside and some of the best food and wines around. The climate is excellent with hot summers and very pleasant spring and autumn if your pursuits are walking and cycling. The villa is perfectly placed for sightseeing the major attraction of the Tuscany region. San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Firenze, Montalcino, Montepulciano, San Galgano, Monteriggioni,Murlo, Cortona and Arezzo are all easily accessible as are the many picturesque villages dotted about this lovely landscape. Tuscany is famous for its food and wine, and there are many local restaurants serving excellent food to suit all pockets.

San Gimignano is 4km from our Villa, a wonderful medieval town, its 13 towers evident on the skyline. Once there were 72 towers, symbols of wealth and power of the medieval families of the 12th and 13th century. At San Gimignano in July and August "Dentro e fuori le mura" a series of performances and events including opera, poetry, theatre, ballet,classical concerts and movies.

Montalcino and its superb wines and imposing Fortress hosts a jazz festival in July. Siena is appox 30 mins drive, a magnificent city steeped in history; the Piazza del Campo being the site of the famous ‘Palio’ race of horses held in the second day of July and 16th of August. Palio, where the competing Contrade, 17 in number, only 10 run a fiercely challenged horse race round the perimeter of this extraordinary shell shaped Square, which is overlooked by the height of the Torre del Mangia. Throughout the city a wealth of art is to be found in the churches and the small museums.

Florence is less than an hour away. Here the cradle of renaissance and home of Dante Alighieri, Machiavelli, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Donatello. Steeped in history and well preserved architecture. Don't miss the Ponte Vecchio, Cathedral and the Uffizi gallery, the list is endless.

SAN GIMIGNAN0

  • 3 of 5
The garden and views were good. It is 5 minutes drive to San Gimignano by helicopter! You have to negotiate a steep, bumpy, dirt road which takes 5 minutes on its own! The villa is tired and bathrooms small and difficult to manage with small children. The sitting room is lovely, with beautiful old furniture. The bedrooms are basic, though acceptable. The kitchen is well equipped, with every utensil you could wish for. Both the BBQ and pizza ovens worked well. . In addition, we were without hot water for over 12 hours,while emails were exchanged and boiler repaired. No allowance was made for this inconvenience. It's a great shame since we had a lovely holiday but a bad taste was left in my mouth by the money grabbing attitude of the owner. These things were difficult to remedy at the time because the owner spoke very limited English and we had no Italian.

Owner's Response: Ringraziamo l'ospite delle sue considerazioni anche se in parte diverse da quelle fatte alla sua partenza. Confermiamo che la villa dista 5 km da San Gimignano e in macchina occorrono 5 minuti. Un guasto ad una caldaia può succedere in qualsiasi momento. Il problema esposto in una email delle 9,47 am è stato risolto con un intervento del tecnico nel pomeriggio alle 3pm. Mi sembra che tutto sia stato sistemato bene e a tempo record. Accanto alla piscina vi è una doccia ad energia solare che poteva ben sostituire le docce in quelle poche ore di disagio.
Nel check out ci rimettiamo totalmente a quanto dichiarato dai clienti senza procedere a nessuna verifica e procediamo ai conteggi nella massima chiarezza e semplicità in presenza del cliente che non ha manifestato nessuna obiezione
