VILLA SAN GIOVANNI - HISTORIC VILLA WITH GARDEN & POOL, WALK TO THE VILLAGE!

San Giovanni d'Asso Villa Rental Photos and Description

8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, sleeps 15 / price reduction for smalle groups

Villa San Giovanni is a splendid home inside the charming Tuscan hilltown of San Giovanni d'Asso. Located near a medieval castle, the villa was built in the 16th century. The property has been carefully renovated, and with eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms there's plenty of room for up to 16 guests. The beauty and old world charm of the original structure of the villa with its exposed beam ceilings and granite and tile floors is a gorgeous backdrop for the comfortable and authentic Tuscan furnishings. Daily maid service, large sunny terrace, garden with swimming pool and spectacular views will guarantee a wonderful relaxing vacation.

Please ask for the link of our home page to receive more information. Thank you!

The extensive property is u-shaped with a beautiful courtyard in the centre: Villa San Giovanni is the building with lots of windows, which extends along the length of the garden; the two side buildings are uninhabited (a church to the left/a lemon greenhouse and a former laundry house to the right). The courtyard offers a splendid private pool and breathtaking views of the vast rolling countryside. Flower beds, shrubs, lemon trees in vases and palm trees decorate the formally designed, upper part of the garden; the lower part comprises the lawn with the pool located on a large sun terrace. The garden overlooks the spectacular landscape of the Crete Senesi and faces towards south-east.

A smaller house (also featured in our portfolio) borders on the garden of Villa San Giovanni and although they each rent separately, if you have a large party of up to 21 people they make an ideal combination.

ABOUT THE VILLAGE AND THE REGION

Villa San Giovanni is an ideal choice for those for those who wish to be close to shopping, restaurants and cafes, yet be in a private home. San Giovanni d'Asso has approximately 300 inhabitants. The villa is situated in the upper part of the village - the 'Borghetto', near the ancient castle, which is now the seat of the municipal authorities and which hosts the famous White Truffle Market in the month of November. The white truffle is prized and famous throughout Italy, as well are the other agricultural products of the area: excellent wines, oil, savoury cheeses and honey. In this upper part of the village there is a fine restaurant just a short walk from the the house. The lower part of San Giovanni d'Asso has an 'osteria' (simple restaurant), a baker and butcher, a pharmacy, a post office, a supermarket and cafe/bar. There is no public transport in San Giovanni, therefore it is essential to have a car.

San Giovanni d'Asso is located in the Val d'Orcia, an enchanting and miraculously unspoilt valley in southern Tuscany, listed as UNESCO world heritage in 2004. Siena, Pienza, Cortona, Arezzo, Orvieto, San Gimignano, Volterra, Perugia, Viterbo and a wealth of sites and attractions are within easy reach. Montalcino, the classic Tuscan hill town topped by a fortress and famous for its Brunello wine (as well as the less pricey Rosso di Montalcino) is nearby. The famous Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore is only 7 km away, and also the Sant' Antimo Abbey, one of the finest Romanesque churches in Tuscany, is within easy daytrip distance.
