The Tolly estate has over 70 hectares of farmland including vineyards and olive groves and produces excellent wines and olive oil, all of which can be tasted during the optional dinners the owners usually organise twice a week. At the centre of the estate is the beautiful rambling 19th Century farmhouse, which has been completely restored and now forms seven lovely apartments. Original characteristics have all been retained and the apartments are furnished in keeping with Tuscan tradition and country style whilst modern facilities including air conditioning, flat screen, ensuite bathrooms and internet connection ensure your comfort. Close to the farmhouse is a beautifully positioned swimming pool (12m x 6m) complete with a round children’s section and surrounded by terraces furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas. From the pool are stunning views of the countryside and amazing San Gimignano perched watchfully on the hillside. Tolly 7 is a spacious apartment on the first floor of the farmhouse. It consists of a living area with dining table and chairs, and fully equipped kitchen area, leading though to a lounge with settees (which can convert to beds on request) and sat tv. There are four comfortable bedrooms (three with double beds, and one with a single bed). One of the ensuite bathrooms has a hydromassage bathtub, the other three have showers. An outside staircase leads from the first floor entrance of the apartment down to the gardens of the estate where Tolly 7 has a terrace area furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco. There is a large communal barbeque in the grounds for guests use and smaller portable ones are available on request. With the sun setting silhouetting San Gimignano, and the lovely view, it’s tempting to dine in the garden or try one of the selection of restaurants in the town. Tolly estate is a perfect location from which to explore the area with gorgeous San Gimignano being just over 2 kms down the road, and the rest of Tuscany’s many beautiful sights such as Florence and Siena.

Splendid apartment on an estate with pool
We spent two amazing weeks at apartment Tolly 7 last summer and we really are satisfied about it all. Everything was like we wished and very comfortable. The apartment is very clean, furnished with taste and tidy, with a splendid view just around us. Some things we really appreciated were the pool, near which we enjoyed to sun bath and the BBQ. We never had such a relaxing and pleasant holiday, we just didn’t want to go away in the end.
Also, thank you to the La Bella Toscana Agency’s Staff for helping us with everything and for being so professional and available.
Relaxing and comfortable – We loved it!
Everything was just amazing about this apartment; from the dining room to the bathrooms with hydro massage, from the pool to the striking surroundings. Everything drove our attention and we immediately felt at home. Comfortable and perfectly furnished apartment near San Gimignano.
Thank you all.
Everything was perfect and as we wished it to be
This apartment close to San Gimignano is amazing and perfect for a couple on holiday. There’s peace and quiet but you still are not secluded from everything. We really enjoyed our holiday, we will surely come back as soon as we can. Highly Recommended.
We stayed for a week in apartment number 8. 4 BD, 4 Baths. Needless to say absolutely perfect for our 2 families travelling together with young children. The scenic and views is breathtaking, Barbara is service minded, and everything is very clean, up to date and well thought through. Beautiful is the most correct word for it all; the view(s), the swimming pool, the furnitures, the building, the feeling!
Not to familiar with wines, but I especially liked the two reserva ones, named after Barbaras two daughhters. The other ones had nothing special to it. I recommend attending to the dinner and wine tasting.
I recommend this place to thoose looking to be self catered, having a car and in need of beautiful quiet days in lovely Tuscany (close to San Gimignano). Have your kids go treasure hunting in the olive groves or grape bushes, and cool of in the pool. Live the life, enjoy it!
I would point my finger at, that beeing a self catering place, and beeing a big apartment for a lot of people, it needs an upgraded kitchen. The diswasher was way to small, we ran it almost twice a day ( 5 young children...), the knives could barely even cut your skin, and all the pots would bend in the bottom when warming up. This does not meet the standards set by Tollena themselves, comparing the kitchen to the other rooms and facilities in general.
Also, the internet wifi is pretty poor, but who cares? Throw away your gadgets, keep your eyes on the views and enjoy life, then go back online when you come back home!
