Gina is situated in beautiful stone farmhouse on an estate in a magnificent position on top of a hill facing the towers of San Gimignano just 4.5km away. The estate has 180 hectares of pasture, agricultural land and woods. It produces excellent wine and olive oil which are available for purchase, and guests are free to wander the estate, which, rich in flora and fauna is the most delightful location for enjoying country walks and admiring the magnificent landscape. Gina is a bright and comfortably furnished apartment with all of its windows enjoying splendid views. The french windows in the living room open on to a large private balcony (44 sqm) where you can relax and enjoy the most marvellous panorama of the surrounding countryside. The balcony which is partially covered by a pergola is furnished with table, chairs, and sunloungers. There is a barbecue in the grounds close by. A path leads to the beautiful swimming pool (14m x 7m) which looks out across sunflower fields, vineyards and olive groves to the distant hills. The pool is furnished with sunbeds and sun umbrellas and there is a handy changing room with shower and w.c. La Fattoria ‘The Plateau Estate’ is a boutique family vineyard, composed of the owner’s manor house, with its own chapel, two traditional Tuscan farmhouses which have been restored to offer very comfortable apartments, and a panoramic swimming pool. During your stay you can make a tour of the cellar with free tasting wine. Our farmhouse has been divided into four apartments, three of which are rented (Nos 34 Vanda, 35 Gina, 36 Marina), all of which are most comfortably furnished in traditional Tuscan style. The farmhouse is surrounded by the estate's vineyards and olive groves and commands the most stunning views of the countryside, with the medieval hamlet of Montauto and the towers of the city of San Gimignano clearly visible over the valley. There is a utility room with washing machine for communal use, Wi Fi internet connection and parking is in the grounds of the estate close to the farmhouse. La Fattoria is only 4.5 kms from San Gimignano. Known as 'The City of Towers' it is a fascinating place to explore, with many craft shops, local art galleries, and historic monuments, as well as an excellent selection of restaurants. 15km away is the town of Poggibonsi which has road, rail and bus links to Florence and Siena making both of these towns easily accessible, and Volterra with its amphitheatre and interesting Etruscan museum is only 30 minutes drive away.

Perfect place in the heart of Tuscany. Apartment is ideal for 4 people, surrounding is very nice, the medieval city of San Gimignano is an hour walk in the countryside. Hard to find any deficiency, if you find one the owners will solve it in no time in a most friendly way. We spent a weak in Gina, Maurizio, Mara and Claudia were always devoted to give help whenever we needed. Do not forget to get a bottle of their Vernaccia for each evening!
We loved our time at Gina - fantastic views over the vineyard and towards San Gimignano. Well appointed apartment with great balcony and superb pool - wow, the views from the pool - great relaxing way to spend the afternoon! Lovely owners too!
Nous avons passé un séjour magnifique et avons eu un service exceptionnel c'était un endroit de rêve avec une vue panoramique à couper le souffle sur les vignobles et le village de San Gimignano. J'espère avoir la chance d'y retourner!
Dear "Bella Toscana" !!!
Very, very very beautyfull hollydays for us. The location of La bella Toscana is just perfect .
The family reception, the calm of the property, the beauty of the site...
If we can, we will return in your location.
I highly recommend Gina for vacation stay.
We appreciated very much our stay in Gina apartment. The owners are very kind . The view from the house is beautiful and vineyard around the house are lovely.
The position of the swimming pool is very nice, just few steps from the house but in a perfect place, on the top of the hill with a panoramic view on Toscany hills
We used to go every day hiking from the house to San Gimignano which I highly recommend for the people who like this sport.
Apartment is well furnished and has all necessary things in it. The only small remark is that it is missing some more amenities, such as small soup , shower and shampoo which is useful for the guests who arrive first day late in the evening and don't have the possibility to buy it in the close surrounding.
For the rest, I highly recommend Gina for vacation stay.
We loved the apartment and Mara and Maurizio were fantastic hosts. Thanks to you for putting us in contact with the dentist. He did a great temporary job on my wifes tooth and it made all the difference in the enjoyment of the rest of our holiday! We hope to return to Tuscany soon!
