Enjoy yourself in your own country estate in Tuscany, with a private pool attached! The 19th century Tuscan farmhouse villa and converted barn are set in their own land, 17 acres of the most charming countryside, eight minutes' walk from the historic town of San Gimignano. Close to San Gimignano (one of the most perfect medieval towns in Italy), offering complete rural seclusion and good-sized private pool (36' by 18'), and terraces on which to dine in the open air, while looking at the views. There is easy access to Siena, Florence and Volterra. The main house has just been equipped with a brand new marble and terracotta kitchen & terrace, with BBQ and outside dining furniture & views. The second house, the newly converted barn, is self-contained, and also has patios with views on which to dine! Barn and house can be rented together or separately (if separately, there is the possibility that the pool might be shared).
The main house: The main house was built in the 19th century and is a picturesque, typical Tuscan farmhouse. The farm is still called by its original name of 'Docciola', which refers to the spring ('doccia') in the middle of the land which in all weathers produces pure and cool water. The living-room (30 x 20 feet) has an open wood-beam fireplace for burning wood in winter and spring, and is furnished with sofas, chairs and a large dining table. As mentioned above, there is now a brand new marble and terracotta kitchen with superb views, with doors leading to an outdoor terrace.
Bedrooms: Upstairs in the main house are four bedrooms, two have double beds and two have two single beds. On the same floor there is a large bathroom with bath and shower and toilet as well as a separate wc. There is additionally a double bedroom reached from the outside at the side of the house.
Barn: The barn has just been converted to a high standard. It is a traditional Tuscan building, restored and converted into extra self-contained accommodation. It consists of a kitchen, a sitting and dining-room, and two bedrooms. The smaller bedroom is on the ground level near the bathroom which has shower, basin, bidet and loo; the double bedroom, reached by a pretty spiral wrought-iron staircase, has a particularly lovely outlook across the fields.
