Farmhouse with pool in central Tuscany

Bedrooms 2
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

2bedrooms, full kitchen, 1 bathroom, private balcony, pergola.

Tucked away along a country road between Siena and Volterra sits Podere Timignano, a wonderfully characteristic farmhouse perched on a hill and surrounded by 7 hectares of fields, woodland and panoramic views.

The house has been restored with great care over the years using many ancient stone works from churches and ruins.

An oval swimming pool (10 x 6.5 m), paved with local stone, is hidden at the end of a wooded path behind the house. This is shared only with the owners.

Timignano is mainly powered by photovoltaic and thermal solar panels, keeping its environmental impact to a minimum.

A most enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Italy and won’t be our last!

Staying at Podere Timignano was a delightful experience from our initial enquiry through to saying our farewells, we had a great week!

Fabio & Sarah greeted us upon our arrival and after inviting us to inspect the accommodation which we were very happy with, kindly helped us to unload our luggage from the car during a rather heavy rainstorm.

We awoke to a beautiful morning and whilst taking in a cup of tea on the terrace could only admire the lovely location of their home within the stunning Tuscan countryside!

With such a beautiful place to stay we stayed ‘home’ a couple of days just relaxing with a book and glass of Fabio and Sarah’s excellent wine!

Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed the trampoline and dipping her toes in the pool!

We visited Casole d’Elsa, the nearest town to Monteguidi, it also has a great ice cream shop: Gelateria La Torre, Via Casolani, 68 53031 Casole d'Elsa

For a supermarket shop we visited the large COOP store at Poggibonsi: via Salceto, 137-143 Poggibonsi

We also visited the Abbey of St. Galgano between Chuisdino and Monticiano:

Località San Galgano, 167, 53012 Chiusdino

Many, many thanks to Fabio & Sarah for a most enjoyable stay!

Perfect Tuscan Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This amazing stone farmhouse couldn't have been more perfect for our Tuscan retreat. It gave us all the flavours of Tuscany and was very comfortable for our family (with 2 teenagers). Lots of little details to delight you - a stone column base built into the wall as a round window, bits of marble, terra cotta and more. The hosts Fabio and Sarah were lovely and supplied us with their own wine and garden vegetables. The unit is attached to their own home but is still very private as the access is separate and the views all in opposite directions. The pool is glorious with fabulous views across the hills. Location was perfect to make day trips to the beautiful Tuscan towns, wine regions and historic sites. We were able to visit Sienna, San Gimignano, Volterra, the Chianti region, the Abbey at San Galgano, a castle ruin and we spent an afternoon on horseback in the nearby Berignone forrest (including a bareback swim in the river)! Even the local town of Casole was peaceful and unspoilt - fun to wander and to visit the butcher and pick up groceries.

Wish we could come back every year! Thanks so much Fabio & Sarah for an unforgettable stay!

Schön, ruhig, idyllisch, natürlich, urig ... sehr empfehlenswert !!!

  • 4 of 5

Im September 2016 erlebten wir 2 Wochen in diesem wunderbaren, authentischen und liebevoll gestalteten Bauernhaus. Die Umgebung ist ruhig und man hat jede Menge Platz um sich einfach frei bewegen zu können.

Die Wohnung ist großzügig und mit allem ausgestattet. Wir hatten herrliches Wetter und konnten entweder auf der Terrasse oder auf dem Balkon essen oder am Abend einfach nur in die Sterne schauen und die Stille genießen. Von dem grandiosen Blick in das weite Tal konnten wir uns nicht satt sehen. Den Pool hatten wir nur für uns. Liegestuhlreservierung (Handtuch) fiel aus :-). Unsere Vermieter Sarah und Fabio waren immer aufmerksam und sehr freundlich. Auch ihr Hund "Lola", zwar etwas scheu, aber sehr lieb und hat eigentlich nie gebellt. Uns hat es super gut gefallen. Wir haben uns herrlich erholt und sind sehr "geerdet" nach Hause gefahren. Für dieses schöne Ferienhaus nimmt man gerne die 1,5 km Schottenpiste in Kauf. Unser Geländewagen kam voll auf seine Kosten.
