We stayed here for 5 nights and it was one of our best holidays. The farm house is well maintained, well equipped with everything you'd need. More importantly, it is in a great location, so peaceful and beautiful surroundings. At the same time, it's still within short driving distance to San Gimignano, where you'd have an excellent choice of restaurants...

Steve was very easy to deal with and provided lots of tips of places to visit and eat when I booked. The house was perfectly described, the beds are amazingly comfortable, and the kitchen has...

We are coming off a short 5 day stay at the property and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. The house is within easy drive of San Gimignano (our most desired city to see) as well as Volterra and several other towns. Siena is an easy day trip also. After the crowds and expense of Venice it was...

Thank you for your review, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for your suggestions - when I installed the wifi the 20GB data was sufficient for the usage of my guests. However the increase in the use of on-line devices is placing a strain on that limit so I will be migrating to an unlimited data...

About the neighborhood
San Gimignano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is just 20 minutes away. Its famous stone towers overlook the cobbled streets and paths that wind through the centre of this charming Tuscan town. There is ample parking and exploring the squares and gardens within the city walls reveals small shops selling local specialities and plentiful excellent restaurants. There are regular festivals, further information can be found on the San Gimignano official website. The medieval town of Volterra is equally close by. Sitting high on a hill overlooking Podere Torricchi the town has charming squares and winding streets. The award winning Castelfalfi golf resort is 20-30 mins drive, the beaches of Cecina and Vada are one hour away.
Getting around
Having a car is essential if you want to get around the sights in the area. Roads in the area are quiet so getting around by car is easy. All towns have well signposted parking with fees averaging €2 per hour. There are good rail links into Florence from Castelfiorentino or Certaldo (20) mins by car. The A1 motorway is accessed near to Poggibonsi. Travel by bus is very limited due the rural location.
