Overview

San Gimignano Villa Rental Photos and Description

Four Bedroom Detached Villa San Gimignano

Four Bedroom Detached Villa San GimignanoIl Podere is the perfect example of a Tuscan country villa, it is surrounded by mature gardens and has a large private swimming pool with a fantastic panorama of the surrounding countryside. Incredibly although the villa is immersed in all this peace and tranquillity, medieval San Gimignano, which is a joy to explore, is only 10 minutes walk away.

The original house dates back to 1600's and has recently been immaculately restored to its original splendour. Now divided into two parts, both have been delightfully furnished to a very high standard including many antique pieces and family heirlooms. Characteristic fireplaces form the centrepieces of spacious lounges, and well equipped kitchens invite you to prepare delicious meals. The private garden which surrounds the villa is immaculately maintained with lawns, mature trees, and flowering plants and enjoys a fine panorama. Perfect for dining alfresco or just enjoying a chilled glass of 'Vernaccia di San Gimignano' whilst enjoying the essence of the Tuscany. The perfectly placed swimming pool (12m x 6m) overlooks the olive groves, and is framed by a paved terrace and lawns. It is a lovely spot for relaxing and enjoying a swim after a busy day`s sightseeing. Guests are free to wander the 10 acre estate which is perfect for country walks and the town San Gimignano with its selection of shops and restaurants is easily reachable on foot.The ground floor of the villa, has a comfortably furnished lounge, and a large kitchen both of which open onto the garden and two characteristic bedrooms which open onto the side garden areas. There are also two shower rooms. The first floor of the villa, is only a few steps from its garden as the house is built unusually on a slope. Its comfortable lounge is very cosy and there is a large kitchen with an unusual antique round marble table. There are two characteristic bedrooms, one with four poster bed, the other with two single beds which opens onto a small balcony, and two bathrooms.The two levels are connected via the garden making the villa perfect for larger parties whilst retaining privacy. There is a communal laundry room, barbecue, and WiFi internet connection is also available at a small local charge. The friendly owners have a small detached cottage on the estate which they occasionally use. Parking is in the grounds below the house.When you can tear yourself away from this idyllic country retreat, the medieval hilltop towns of Colle di Val d`Elsa and Volterra famous for its alabaster are within half an hour's drive, whilst both Siena and Florence are easily accessible via road, or nearby bus and rail links. San Gimignano can be reached on foot or by local shuttle bus that runs every hour and stops 300m from the property.DETAILSGround Floor: Fully equipped kitchen with cooker (4 gas rings), small electric oven, fridge, table and chairs > Living room with dining table and chairs, fireplace, satellite television, armchairs and settee (which converts to a single bed on request) > 2 Twin bedrooms (which can be converted to doubles on request) > An extra single bed can be provided on request > 2 Shower rooms with shower cubicle, basin, bidet and w.c.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was an ideal villa for 7 of us on our two week stay in San Gimignano. The villa is very well equipped and located in beautiful grounds with wonderful views. The house is divided into two self-contained units which can sleep four each. It was an easy walk uphill to San Gimignano. The owners live on the property and were very friendly and accessible, providing lots of local knowledge, maps and guides.

Loved it.....

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from staying a week at this Villa. Very clean, beautiful setting, very comfortable and the couple that rent the villa were the sweetest people. The pictures don't do it justice. Five of us traveling together and this was the ending for us traveling through Italy. It put the icing on the cake. Walking distance to grocery store and the town of San Gimignano. We are all 50-70 and had no problem with the walk. I highly recommend this villa.
