One Bedroom Ground Floor Apartment San GimignanoLa Pergola is a charming apartment, ideally situated in beautiful countryside yet within walking distance of medieval San Gimignano. In front of the apartment is a lovely terrace shaded by a pergola and in the vineyard below is a private swimming pool surrounded by olive trees and enjoying a pretty view of the landscape.
The apartment is on the ground floor of a farmhouse with its own private entrance at the rear of the house overlooking the vineyards and fields beyond. In the other part of the farmhouse live the owners who proudly work the surrounding land and are friendly and helpful whilst not intruding on your privacy. Available from them is their own local wine, fresh eggs and fruit and vegetables in season. Simply and comfortably furnished the La Pergola has a double bedroom, shower room and a living room with kitchen area, dining table and chairs, settee and armchair. This room opens onto the terrace which is shaded by trailing plants and furnished with a pretty stone table, chairs, sun loungers and barbecue creating the ideal spot for dining al fresco. In a secluded position in the vineyard and olive grove below the terrace is a private swimming pool (6m x 3m), perfect for a cooling dip whilst enjoying the lovely countryside. La Pergola has the added bonus of being within walking distance (1.4 km) of the famous town of San Gimignano. Its medieval towers, famous piazza and many other historic monuments are a joy to explore and there is also a supermarket, a selection of shops and many restaurants to enjoy. Parking is in the grounds close to the apartment. 900m from the property there is a shuttle bus service into the town. From San Gimignano there are local buses to Poggibonsi 12 kms away which has further bus, rail and road links to Siena and Florence making it very easy to visit Tuscany`s major sights.DETAILSLiving room with kitchen area with cooker (3 gas 1 electric rings oven), fridge/freezer, dining table and chairs, settee and armchair > Double bedroom (one extra bed can be provided on request to accomodate a child of up to 12 years) > Shower room with shower, basin and w.c. > Private swimming pool > Terrace > Central heating* > Parking > Walking distance of 1.4km to town of San Gimignano > 1km to nearest shops > 900m to shuttle bus stop into town (facilities marked * are payable locally)
We stayed one month at La Pergola. It had a great location, looking out on beautiful Tuscan countryside, and only 10-15 minutes walk from the amazing town of San Gimignano. It's central location was a great base for exploring Tuscany.
This was a good place to stay as long as you do not expect luxuries. The kitchen was well equipped with gas available for cooking. The shower had a very limited hot water cylinder so we had to be quick.
The rooms were clean and pleasant. The owners didn't speak English, but were friendly and welcoming, and we managed to communicate the essentials.
We enjoyed our month.
