San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy
Radiating out from this hill is all that visitors to Tuscany come to see: the undulating patchwork blanket of verdant fields, punctuated in spring with smudges of red wildflowers and bursting with sunflower yellow and silvery olive groves, and regimental rows of cypress pine lining the bianca strade – the white unsealed roads that follow the rise and fall of the land.
This visual currency and the glorious weather conspire to seduce both romantics and cynics, and many visitors dream of relocating to this rural idyll to write, grow olives, or just enjoy the leisurely pace of life in this part of the world. Now this can all be yours.
This 500 year old farmhouse, built on Etruscan foundations, is located in a secluded valley in the foothills of the famous medieval walled city of San Gimignano.
The Villa offers comfortable accommodation for up to 17 guests with a choice of five stunning self-catering rustic cottages or apartments, sleeping between two and five in each.
Each cottage or apartment has its own loggia or terrace, from which guests can relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
Facilities at the Villa include a magnificent Roman bath house-style heated indoor pool, as well as a sauna, solarium and fitness suite – although you’re more likely to be enjoying the breathtaking views from the sun deck than worrying about the treadmill.
