Two Bedroom Split Level Apartment San Gimignano
Galizia is a bright and comfortable apartment one half of a beautifully restored barn, it has a covered terrace and a large garden for relaxing. Immersed in the countryside it is an ideal location from which to tour Tuscany, and perfect for lovely walks enjoying the picturesque panoramas.
Galizia apartment is located in a pretty barn on a small family run farm just 7km from San Gimignano with its historic monuments, many craft shops, various restaurants and open air swimming pool. There are pleasant views of the Elsa Valley from the farm which produces wine and olive oil and they have an attractive assortment of animals including ducks, pigeons, doves, chickens and a blackbird which are kept at the owners seperate farmhouse across the lane.
The barn is divided into just two apartments Galizia (described here) and No 48 Merlino. It has been thoughtfully restored maintaining its interesting architectural features as esemplified by the very large brick and glass windows which allow for the bright and light interiors, and traditional beamed ceilings.
Galizia, on two floors, is comfortably furnished in a pleasant mix of traditional Tuscan and modern styles. On the ground floor there is a kitchen/dining room, bedroom, and shower w/c and a comfortable living area which has arched glass doors opening on to the apartment's covered terrace. On the first floor is a further bedroom and shower w/c.
The apartment's terrace looks out on to the large private garden and is furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco. There are also sun loungers, sun umbrella and a barbecue. Parking is in the grounds next to the apartments.
It is an excellent location for enjoying country walks as farm is connected to other tiny hamlets and farmhouses by a network of little used country lanes and pathways that crisscross the countryside affording lovely views in all directions. Just 5km down the road is Poggibonsi with its supermarkets, shops, restaurants, open air swimming pool and road and rail links to Florence and Siena making it very easy to visit Tuscany's major sights.
