If you are after peace and tranquillity in the middle of nowhere with views to die for, then look no further. Il Granario is admittedly small, but very well equipped and spotlessly clean. In our case, four adults were accomodated very comfortably, though whilst at the house, we spent the vast majority of our time outside on the terrace. This is west facing making the stunning scenery and sunsets just wonderful.
There are loads of villages and walled towns to visit in the area. There is a visitor's book at the house that gives lots of tips on places to visit and recommended restaurants etc.
Steve the owner is brilliant to do business with. He answers any queries promptly and emails plenty of useful hints and tips to you before making your journey.
The only thing you need to be aware of is that there are no shops, supermarkets, bars or restaurants within walking distance. You need a car to travel anywhere at all, though for us, this was all part of its charm.
We loved the place and will definitely be returning.

My husband, our 14 year old daughter, and I loved our vacation in Tuscany. This was our first time in Italy and after the crowds of Rome, we found Il Granario to be a welcome haven of peacefulness, comfort, and convenience. We stayed for 5 days but would have gladly stayed longer, although to be honest, it is a little remote and we did have to find ways to keep our teenager from being bored. The wifi worked extraordinarily well, so that made her happy. During the day we were able to easily visit (by car) San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Pisa, and Lucca. The views from the house are incredible. Every night, we enjoyed a glass of local wine while sitting and watching the sunset from the garden patio chairs. The owner of the property was easy to work with, provided us with suggested itineraries, and answered all of our questions in a very timely manner. We loved the comfortable beds, the cleanliness, and all of the included amenities. We were lucky to have warm and sunny weather and would have enjoyed the pool, but it doesn't open until May. It was a great vacation and we would definitely highly recommend Il Granario to anyone who wants to experience Tuscany.

We spent a week in this amazing house and will definately return if we can. Amazing view of the fantastic landscape, magical sunsets and all you need in the house to have a comfortable stay. Close to all the cities, villages and wine yards that you want to see. And San Gimignano was amazing we spent two days there, enjoying the village and the shopping. Big thanks to Steve who provided us with all possible information that you need, including a lot of advice where to go and what to see.

This house and the surroundings were the best part of our trip!!!! We can really recommend this to anyone who want's to enjoy lovely Toscana in the best place!!,

Best regards,
