Sole is a charming apartment furnished in Tuscan country style. Original features such as beamed ceilings and terracotta floors have all been retained, whilst satellite television and air conditioning (payable locally if required) provide modern comforts. The apartment consists of a double bedroom, a shower room and a living room with kitchen area. The living room opens out onto the balcony, which is furnished with table and chairs for dining alfresco, or enjoying a glass of the local Vernaccia wine that the farm produces along with olive oil, fruit and honey, all of which can be purchased locally. Close to the house is the beautiful swimming pool (12m x 6m), which is surrounded by lawns and enjoys a magnificent view across vineyards and olive groves towards the medieval towers of San Gimignano in the distance. The estate which is in a lovely position close to San Gimignano consists of the main house which now forms four apartments, one in which the owner lives and the others which he rents, and a small detached building with a fifth apartment. Sole is very conveniently situated just over 1km from an excellent restaurant and halfway between the towns of Certaldo and San Gimignano both only about ten minutes drive away. At San Gimignano there are many historical monuments to visit, a good choice of restaurants, and lots of local craft shops whilst Certaldo has a supermarket, railway station and an interesting medieval quarter, birthplace of the famous poet Boccaccio and home of the important ‘Mercantia’ craft fair. Just 12km down the road is Poggibonsi with its rail and road links to both Siena and Florence making it very easy to visit Tuscany’s most important sights. Parking is in the grounds close to the apartment. Breakfast is available on request. Breakfast must be requested at the time of booking and is payable locally.
