Beautiful and distinctive villa created from the restoration of one of the typical barns that characterises the Tuscan countryside. The villa is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves with cypress trees in the background framing the beautiful setting. This is a typical area of Tuscany that has become famous around the world thanks to San Gimignano, which has become a symbol of medieval villages, as well as for its white wine, Vernaccia. The property is located along the ancient Via Francigena which connected France to Rome, now popular among hikers who walk along many stretches of the ancient road, especially those still left in their natural state with incredible and romantic landscapes. The villa is ideal for those who want to spend their holidays with close friends, alternating rest and relaxation with excursions to the surrounding towns and villages: just to name one, Certaldo, the birthplace of Boccaccio, author of the famous "Decameron", which we recommend reading while drinking a good glass of wine. The stones of the walls of the villa, a warm amber colour, stand out against the green lawn that surrounds the house. The outdoor area is fenced in and well-equipped and on one side is the swimming pool with outdoor shower (7x14, 1.20-2.40 m deep) (01/05-30/09). The villa has Wi-Fi Internet connection, baby-bed, high-chair and a welcome basket included in the price. On request and to be paid for on location: maid services, a chef, mid-weekly cleaning, extra linen change and cooking classes. Central heating. Parking.
