Spend a leisurely holiday in Tuscany at this farmhouse villa rental. On an estate that includes formal Italian gardens and over 500 acres of grounds, you will have plenty of space, including your own wonderful sun terrace! Within easy day-trip distance of Siena and Florence, not to mention little villages like Monteriggioni, this farmhouse in Tuscany provides you with endless opportunities for sightseeing. Of course you can also stay home to relax at this Chianti Tuscany farmhouse, or even take a class in traditional Italian cooking!

(250 hectares) This property in Tuscany, which has been owned by the same family since the 17th century, is part of a 13th century hamlet that includes an old farmhouse, wine cellars, olive oil mills, a carpenter shop, a small church, and stables. The property contains vineyards that produce a wonderful Chianti Classico, olive trees (which produce a tasty extra virgin olive oil), hay fields, and woods. The estate offers a view of rolling hills, the walled town of Monteriggioni, and in the distance, the towers of San Gimignano. Huge cypress trees line the unpaved, 500 meter driveway to the estate entrance.

The house is a spacious, rustic country home, independent from the villa, with a shared infinity-edge swimming pool (15m x 7m) and a garden area overlooking the vineyards. A large fig tree provides shade. There is a barbecue area and a table for outdoor dining (seats 12 people), as well as other garden furniture. The friendly and hospitable owners live on the third floor of the villa, and the guardians, as well as other farmers, live on the estate. The owners' dogs have their own enclosed garden; however, they can be heard during their daily walks on the property!

Besides this farmhouse (which can accommodate 12 people), there are other properties available for rent on the same Tuscan estate. There is a villa (sleeps 6) and another farmhouse composed to two units that sleep a total of 12. The entire estate can accommodate a total of 34 people. There is ample room for parking on the property. Overall, the house is a perfect retreat for family farmhouse vacations in Italy.

(250 m2/2,690 ft2) The house is furnished with simple antique furniture, terra cotta floors, wooden beamed ceilings, and whitewashed walls. All of the windows provide wonderful views.

Ground Floor: This floor has a storage room with a washing machine.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Our group of ten had a very enjoyable experience at the property.

Enjoyed Most:

The views were spectacular. Also the owner and her daughter were very pleasant and helpful.

Enjoyed Least:

Because we were the first renters of the season and it was an unusually late spring, it was quite chilly in the house.

Surrounding Area:

We were able to take day trips to Pisa, Florence and other small towns.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Monteriggioni. It was fairly far and you had to walk through a field so we never ended up walking into town.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring warm clothing if it is early in the season.

Directions:

The directions to the property were very good. We used a GPS and had no trouble finding the place.

Check In Out:

The check in and check out went very smoothly. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Excellent overall experience. Owners very helpful in assisting in directions and restaurant reservations.

Enjoyed Most:

Layout, views, pool.

Enjoyed Least:

Drawbacks were inconsistent hot water and low pressure in showers, and the bedrooms were hot even with floor fans. Ceiling fans may have helped.

Surrounding Area:

What is not to enjoy. Tuscany is beautiful.

Nearby Events or Locales:

You could walk to Montereggioni. But by car it was a short ride.

Tips or Restaurants:

Need better directions to villa. GPS helped once we found the Property and could program. Il Pozzo in Montereggioni, and La Buccacia in Cortona. Day at beach at Porto Ercole suggested by Luisa was great.

Amazing! ...

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Amazing!

Enjoyed Most:

I loved the house and the pool, but the best thing about this property was having the owners right next door. They were so helpful with restaurant recommendations, train bus schedules, museum reservations, area information, etc., etc.... and they were a joy to talk to!

Enjoyed Least:

Nothing.

Surrounding Area:

Beauty as far as the eye could see. Plenty of places to take a walk or go for a bike ride.

Nearby Events or Locales:

We were within walking distance to the walled town of Monteriggioni a little adventurous walk but fun and a short drive to Sienna.

Tips or Restaurants:

The house was well stocked when we arrived - more than we expected. We were even provided with coffee, fresh fruit, yogurt, jams, and cereal. Just ask Luisa for restaurant recommendations and you will not be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We felt like we were at home - we could look forward to gathering by the pool each evening and talking about our day. Not at all like a hotel experience.

Enjoyed Most:

The owners-property managers were absolutely wonderful. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They felt like family by the end of the week.

Enjoyed Least:

One of the showers didn't work too well - no big deal.

Surrounding Area:

It was just beautiful countryside.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Monteriggioni was the nearest town - very small. You could walk there, but the road was pretty narrow and the trail was an adventure.

Tips or Restaurants:

It was very well equipped - even had a basket of things to fix for dinner if you arrived after the markets closed. Pool towels were included.
