Tulip is a charming apartment furnished in Tuscan country style. Original features such as beamed ceilings and terracotta floors have all been retained, whilst satellite television and air conditioning (payable locally if required) provide modern comforts. The living room and the twin bedroom both have patio doors that open out onto the terrace, which is furnished with table and chairs for dining alfresco, or enjoying a glass of the local Vernaccia wine that the farm produces along with olive oil, fruit and honey, all of which can be purchased locally. Close to the house is the beautiful swimming pool (12m x 6m), which is surrounded by lawns and enjoys a magnificent view across vineyards and olive groves towards the medieval towers of San Gimignano in the distance. The estate which is in a lovely position close to San Gimginano consists of the main house which now forms four apartments, one in which the owner lives and the others which he rents, and a small detached building. Tulip is very conveniently situated just over 1km from an excellent restaurant and halfway between the towns of Certaldo and San Gimignano both only about ten minutes drive away.

Just 12km down the road is Poggibonsi with its rail and road links to both Siena and Florence making it very easy to visit Tuscany`s most important sights.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment we stayed in was nicely decorated and well kept. The view over the landscape to San Gimiliano and also to the other directions is spectacular. The whole place as well as the swimmingpool is also well kept and in good condition The owner Mr. Marcello and his wife are very friendly and helpful. The "homemade" wine and olive oil are an additional plus. The location is a perfect start for drives to all parts of Toscani and the restaurants in Certaldo and San Gimiliano are in good distance and one finds a great varierity and some of them are excellent. I am sure that we will stay there again.
