Siena Area Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Dishwasher, full cutlery and washing machine turn self-catering into a joy. Satellite TV facility. The place is well maintained with gardener and housekeeper and surrounded by lots of flowers. On-site 20x10 meter swimming pool and a shallow kids pool. Solar-heated pool, fireplace and centrally heated rooms can extend your holiday season. Tennis court.

The 300 year old Le Bagnaie Estate covers 5 acres, and consists of eight privately owned houses set in exceptionally well maintained gardens, sharing a 20m pool, a children’s pool and an all-weather tennis court. Our home occupies the whole upper floor and turret of the old farmhouse. There are outstanding 360º views from the hilltop of Le Bagnaie over the surrounding countryside, ranging from woodlands to olive groves and Chianti Classico vineyards and the distant towers of both Siena and San Gimignano. The estate is peaceful, private and within easy reach of the most important sites of Tuscany.

Tuscan idyll

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely wonderful, steeped in peace and beauty: a mix of 360 degree views; rustic 15th century farm atmosphere; fresh tomatoes, green peppers, courgettes and herbs picked daily from the garden; swimming in a huge pool whilst looking at towns 50 kilometres away; Siena 15 minutes away; our favourite restaurants within a 30-minute drive. Each night that we drove to dinner, we ran across wild boar or deer and there were frequent pheasant flutterings in the morning. Our friends who were staying in a fancy hotel nearby felt quite cheated by comparison, we were a tad smug. We are thinking when to come back in the spring. I can only fault the driving directions, please upgrade to GPS co-ordinates!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Quattro Staggioni for six weeks in the fall of 2012, but have visited Le Bagnaie several times both before and after that (and stayed in other properties on the estate).

Why do we keep coming back? This place is our all time vacation favorite, with the beautiful views, garden and pool area, and in a location which is a great starting point for day trips all over Tuscany.

The apartment itself is nice, with a kitchen equipped for cooking your own meals, spacious bedrooms and living room, and a wonderful private garden with a grill. But best of all: the loggia, where you can enjoy the Tuscan sunset and a glass of wine before dinner (would have appreciated some more comfortable chairs here, though).

If anything should break, you need directions, advice on where to eat or help finding the nearest hospital, manager Jacky or the always helpful cleaning and gardening staff is never far away.

Highly recommended!

Outstanding view!

  • 4 of 5

The best feature of this property is its outstanding view which the cover picture does not give full justice to. It also has a unique covered loggia with windows that fold back to display surely the best view in Chianti. The accommodation would be best suited to a family rather than for example 3 couples. It was very clean and well maintained. The grounds are wonderful with fruit trees in profusion as well as a vegetable patch for all to help themselves from. The site manager Jacky could not have been more helpful. Plenty of restaurants within reasonable distance as well as a small kitchen which was adequate for preparing home cooked meals to enjoy either in the private garden or on the wonderful loggia.

vacation in le bagnaie

  • 4 of 5

Dear All,

Just a quick note to say that the holiday in le bagnaie was splendid! Everthing you can dream of a vacation... a room with a magnificent view, XL pool even one for your children. The region is devine, and people ar oh so friendly.

Mind that the summer period is really hot, even in a well cooled house! If you have young children, perhaps the setting on the first floor is a bit pitty. (you´ll have to leave the house to be in your garden down stairs)

I´m sure you´ll have a wonderfull vacation!

Lovely tuscan getaway

  • 4 of 5

If you want the classic tuscany out of the Stealing beauty film then this is it- the views are as stunning as they seem and this place is in the middle of it all tucked up a cute dirt track whilst at the same time perfectly accessible. The 3 rooms are great for a family of 4 and grandparents, but would be equally great for 3 couples too. Kitchen is small but dining room and loggia give more than enough space. View from loggia is stunning too. Living room is nice and spacious and pleasant to spend time in. We didnt have chance to eat outside but garden may be a bit cramped but sure the communal areas would be fine. The communal pool is gorgeous- lots of room for everyone and amazing!!! panoramic view. Although you cant see san gimiano as we had thought. We had pizzas in castellina in chianti twice which is a lovely little town with plenty of amenities. Great food and a lovely evening out- not v far away at all. Easy drives to all the attracttions too. This villa is a great destination. Not v modern and a bit rustic (although v cool bathroom) but all clean and just as it should be. I would definitely go back there.
