Poggibonsi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

holiday apartments in two independent villas with air conditioning & pool

The landscape surrounding the little hamlet of Gavignano is completely quiet and unspoiled, making a perfect setting for a country holiday, ideal for gentle walks and picnics. The towers of S. Gimignano are just visible across the valley. Podere OLiveta which translates as 'Olive grove Farm' consists of 5 different apartments which enjoy a pretty location up in the hills .Each apartment has its own independent entrance and own garden area with barbecue. Much careful thought has gone into decoration, furnishing and ensuring the apartments are equipped down to the last detail. There is a swimming pool surrounded by a sun terrace which has stunning views overlooking the rolling olive clad hills, the sprinkling of cypresses trees and the majestic towers of S. Gimignano in the distance. Local wine and olive oil can be bought nearby. Podere Oliveta enjoys a location with easy access to the main routes to Florence and Siena.

Podere Oliveta is a good choice for exploring central Tuscany. The main attractions of the region can be reached very easily. The highway which connects Florence to Siena is only 3 km distant. And the villa's location only 3 km from the railway station of Poggibonsi is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car: You can park your car in Poggibonsi (free parking behind the railway station) and take the train in both directions. During the week, trains to Florence/Siena and back go regularly (approx. every 1. hour). The train ride takes about 30 minutes to Siena and 1. hour to Florence. In Florence the train will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station 'Santa Maria Novella' to the Cathedral or the Uffizi. In Siena the railway station is located approx. 1 km from centre, and you may have to take a bus to reach the old town on top of the hill or take the escalator.

Tuscany/Siena Province : visit the world famous Piazza del Campo , for centuries has been the centre stage of the Palio,theindisputable symbol of Siena. Ancients medieval cities like San Gimignano,Lucca ,Arezzo,Firenze ,and many unknown villages,chapels,castles,museum. There are thousands of masterpieces to be discovered. Throughout the year there are a lot of exhibitions,festivals,markets,and sporting events involving residents as well as tourists.

Hidden among the rolling hills of Tuscany...

  • 5 of 5
... is this gem of an apartment, one of five at the Podere Oliveta farm. We found the location perfect for day trips around the region... Siena and Firenze are easily within reach as are Volterra and San Gimignano; Poggibonsi makes a very good travel hub. But Podere Oliveta is a few km outside of the small city, so that the immediate environment feels very rural and quiet. The Cantini family has made this a very comfortable place for a week's stay; we enjoyed cooking meals here as well as the availability of an open fireplace for our use. Speaking of comfort, we thought at first we would find the bed too hard... but after six nights of sound sleep we had to admit it was excellent. We appreciated all of the basic necessities (and grocery items!) that were provided upon our arrival; this was a thoughtful touch. We found the apartment clean and even more spacious than the photos suggest. Lastly, the Cantinis are a good resource for local information... we suggest you ask about local restaurants and shopping when you arrive, although an informative binder is there in the apartment for your use. All in all, we were very happy with our stay at Apartment Gufo and look forward to trying it again in the warmer weather when the swimming pool will be an option!
