PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Villa Caterina, a rustic stone farmhouse, is located in one of the most beautiful landscapes that nature has to offer in the territory of Siena, nestled in the beautiful setting of green expanses cultivated with vineyards and olives, in the heart of the Val d'Elsa, between Siena and Florence, and just 5 minutes from the historical centre of the famous little town of San Gimignano. Originally a farmhouse, with the ground floor used as a shed and shelter for animals, the house was subsequently enlarged and renovated in respect of the original plan and in keeping with the exquisitely Tuscan architectural tradition, where wood and terracotta are the main features of all the rooms, rendered intimate and cosy by the antique family furniture and by details evoking the rural history and local traditions. Located on a hillside, the garden and the swimming pool look out over a superb view, starting from the flourishing garden, that stretches uninterruptedly toward the rolling expanses that unfold below and then, finally, up to the soaring towers, symbol of a proud town protected by strong walls, witnesses to a history of more than a thousand years: a true masterpiece, magnificently painted by the brush of nature and by the genius of man, in which the harmony of shapes and colours create a perfect synthesis. Guests can relax in this oasis of peace and natural wellbeing where they can enjoy the typical Tuscan countryside yet, at the same time, make exciting trips to the main art cities of Tuscany such as Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca and Volterra, as well as to the medieval villages in the area, like Monteriggioni and Certaldo or the villages of the Chianti territory – all within easy reach of the house.

Interior

The house has two floors. As well as the internal staircase there is also an external one next to the main entrance on the ground floor which opens into a large open-plan space - with living/dining area and fully-equipped kitchen with barbecue fireplace; the living room French window has direct access to the pergola, set up for outdoor dining. The floor is completed by a guest bathroom/laundry room. The internal terracotta staircase leads up to the first floor with a brightly-lit studio with reading corner, connected, on the right, to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and, on the left, to a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) and a double bedroom, sharing a bathroom with shower.

Park

The property covers an area of about 10,000 square meters, most of which is taken up by the olive grove surrounding the park. Once past the entrance gate, a row of oleanders accompanies guests in the lush and overflowing garden around the house, which includes a large assortment of plants and flowers, gathered in a profusion of unequalled colours and scents: pines, olives, cypresses and fruit trees dot the lawns which alternate with stone-paved paths and bushes of roses and Mediterranean herbs, delineating the set-up areas. Fragrant climbing plants, lemons and beds of geraniums adorn every corner of the garden, inviting you to spend your day in the open air: the pergola (in front of the living/dining room), covered in trumpet vines, Virginia creeper and wisteria, is the ideal setting in which to savour the culinary delicacies of Tuscany, and the veranda in front of the house, shaded by climbing Virginia creeper, is perfect for relaxing and enjoying a good glass of wine. Finally, in some of the more scenic spots, seats and benches have been set up so that you can contemplate the beautiful hilly landscape.

Swimming Pool

Open from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October, the south-facing pool stands in a super panoramic site, in a beautiful corner of the property which offers a magical and unforgettable view over the gentle hills and borgo of San Gimignano. The pool is just 10 m from the house, set in the beautiful, colourful garden that borders the sunbathing area, provided with sunbeds and umbrella. The rectangular pool has a large step and a ladder for access to the water; it measures 8 x 4 m with a constant depth of 1.50 m. The border is in travertine marble, while the inner lining is in light-coloured PVC. The pool is purified with chlorine and has an outdoor, cold-water shower; there is lighting both inside the pool and in the surrounding area.

The additional terms are: “The PRICES listed are WEEKLY and do not include: *3,00% Emma Villas commissions (Agency commission + costs for opening file + personal customer assistance service); *tourism tax where applicable (by the Italian Law).“

San Gimignano is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in the Siena area. It is located on a hill, about 300m above sea level and dominates the Elsa valley, with superb views. The old tall towers inside the walls are a symbol of the town, a real open-air museum full of architectural masterpieces and works of art that adorn churches and palaces. Its celebrity is due to the excellence of its wine production, above all the 'Vernaccia di San Gimignano”, the exquisite and most famous white wine of the area. San Gimignano is easily accessible thanks to the excellent network of roads and highways that connect to the motorway exits of Firenze Impruneta (coming from the north) and Val di Chiana (coming from the south). The airports in the region are within reasonable distance: Pisa at72km and Florence at 64 km. 12 km from the villa is the Certaldo railway station which provides direct connections to the Rome-Florence line. Shops and other essential services providing all needs for guests are nearby. The commercial area of Poggibonsi, with its large supermarkets and shopping centres, can be reached by car in 10 minutes. Of note, finally, are riding stables and a golf course about 10 km from the property.
