The villa is split into two apartments which can be rented separately. We booked both for 6 adults and 3 children. The accommodation was clean and spacious and in a beautiful setting. There is a pool with lovely views over the Tuscan countryside. The villa is set in 10 acres of land some planted with olive grove which guests are free to walk. The owners Vittorio and Marina could not have been kinder and more accommodating. They even provided some books and toys for the children and an inflatable whale for the pool!
San Gimignano itself is magical especially at night when it is lit up and not so crowded.
Certainly a memorable holiday in a beautiful place.
