Overview

About the property

apartment in farmhouse, pool, vegetables, wine and olive oil, 4 people

Tucked away along a country road between Siena and Volterra sits Podere Timignano, a wonderfully characteristic farmhouse perched on a hill and surrounded by 7 hectares of fields, woodland and panoramic views . The house has been restored with great care over the years using many ancient stone works from churches and ruins.

An oval swimming pool (10 x 6.5 m), paved with local stone, is hidden at the end of a wooded path behind the house. This is shared only with the owners.

Timignano is mainly powered by photovoltaic and thermal solar panels, keeping its environmental impact to a minimum.

A two-bedroom self-contained apartment fills one part of the main house. It has a separate entrance, outdoor shaded seating area and a private roof terrace for enjoying spectacular sunsets.

There is a modern and well-equipped kitchen/living room with sitting area and dining table, a spacious double bedroom, a smaller bedroom with twin beds ( can be turned into double bed on request ) and a bathroom with shower.

Fabio and Sarah, olive oil and wine producers, live in the rest of the house with their 2 children. They will be delighted to welcome you on your arrival at Timignano and help out if necessary.

Zwei Wochen pure Erholung!

  • 5 of 5

Optimal für einen ruhigen und sehr erholsamen Urlaub mit super freundlichen Vermietern, die man zu jeder Zeit zu allen Fragen ansprechen konnte. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Ca. 40 Minuten von Siena, San Gimignano und Volterra inmitten einer sehr schönen Mittelgebirgslandschaft gelegen. Auch kleinere Ortschaften in der Nähe, wie z.B. Casole D' Elsa (ca. 10 km), sind besonders für abendliche Besuche zu empfehlen. Der nächste große Supermarkt ist zwar etwa 20 km entfernt, im Haus befindet sich jedoch ein großer Kühlschrank mit Gefrierfach in dem man ausreichend Vorräte lagern kann. Die Ferienwohnung ist rustikal mit typisch toskanischem Flair und aureichend groß für 4 Personen (2 Doppelzimmer). Sehr schöner Pool mit tollem Blick in die Hügellandschaft und geschmackvollen Chairdecks zum Sonnen und Zurückziehen. Aber Achtung! Die Stechmücken lieben fremdländisches Blut ;-) (also ausreichend vorbeugen!).

Liebe Sarah, lieber Fabio,

vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit!

Perfekter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit einem 3-Jährigen Kind) verbrachten 1 wundervolle ruhige Woche in Timignano. Die Ferienwohnung ist wie im Inserat beschrieben sauber, gut ausgestattet und sehr idyllisch gelegen. Im Haus war es angenehm kühl, genauso wie der traumhafte Pool, dessen Wasser trotz Hitze immer erfrischend war. Fabio antwortete schnell auf emails und schickte uns vorab eine detaillierte und genau Wegbeschreibung. Sarah und er empfingen uns sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und standen uns mit Tipps jederzeit zur Seite. Wir haben die Ruhe sehr genossen, hätten uns auch einen längeren Aufenthalt vorstellen können und freuen uns schon auf ein nächstes Mal.

Timignano and its surroundings have something to offer for everyone, and for this reason it makes is an ideal holiday base for families with young or older children, couples or a group of friends.

This is a perfect place for relaxing - on the private terrace, in the shaded garden area or by the pool. There are several paths leading directly from Timignano for country walks. The surrounding hill-top villages offer fantastic views, cobbled streets and alley ways, beautiful old churches, a taste of local life and good restaurants. There are 2 restaurants within 5 minutes from Timignano.

Just behind the house lie the extensive forests of Berignone, one of Tuscany’s largest protected areas which stretch as far as the coast. Its numerous marked paths provide endless possibilities for hiking and cycling - as well as wildlife spotting.

Further afield, but still within a 40 minute drive, are three of the major Tuscan historical and architectural hot-spots – Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. Florence is an hour away, the beautiful Tuscan coast just over an hour. Plenty of other smaller and lesser known cultural, artistic, gastronomic and natural gems are all within easy reach.
