We stayed here with family and friends in Aug 2011. The villa is lovely and Valerio was really friendly and helpful in all respects. We made good use of the pool and loved using the pizza oven for cooking during our stay. The children enjoyed horse riding at Pignano (a short walk away) and we enjoyed seeing the scenery in the surrounding area by hiring a quad bike from the viila (both of which Valerio helped organise along with a trip to some local small lakes which we swam in). We had a lovely holiday and hope to return one day !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Le Ginepraie, a typical 17th century Tuscan farmhouse, with private chef and private restaurant only for the guest, stands on a knoll surrounded by hills, offering a superb panorama. Even though the location enjoys total tranquillity, it is in a strategic position between San Gimignano, Volterra, Colle Val d'Elsa, Siena, Florence and the sea, which can all be reached easily. The private swimming pool and large garden encourage relaxation, sunbathing and reading, while the surrounding countryside offers a number of pleasant walks. In other words, Villa Ginepraie offers itself as a unique place to spend a restful holiday with your friends and family, only a short distance from Tuscany's art, history and entertainment.The three roomy apartments and the two bedrooms that make up the Villa are elegant, but warm and welcoming at the same time. ... more less
