The Tuscany region
The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the northwest and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West.
From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.
Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated.
The Chianti area, between Florence and Siena, is one of the most beautiful countrysides in Italy and a famous wine production area.
Florence is the capital of Tuscany. Other important cities are Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Pistoia, Prato, Lucca, Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara.
Siena is one of the most popular destinations for travelers to Tuscany. Siena is home to the famous horse race, the Palio, held in Siena's unusual central square.
San Gimignano rises on a hill (334m high) dominating the Elsa Valley with its towers. The town increased in wealth and developed greatly during the Middle Ages thanks to the "Via Francigena" the trading and pilgrim's route that crossed it. Such prosperity lead to the flourishing of works of art to adorn the churches and monasteries. The construction of the towers dates back to the 11th and 13th centuries.
The town of Poggibonsi lies approx. 2 km away and offers all kind of services: shops, supermarkets, banks, tennis courts, train station (to Siena and Florence), good restaurants etc.

"In need of a total upgrade"
Weather and garden area lovely - house needs total overhaul, Top floor unusable as its too warm to sleep in - property has no A/C (the fans in the house I bought) - beds uncomfortable (hard or sofa be… More
Perfectly free to make your comments, however, I'm afraid I have to disagree with these as it must be noted that you have already rented Villa Leoncini in August 2013 with a partner agency and rebooked directly with us for August 2014.
The fact that you decided to spend your summer holiday at the villa for the second consecutive year would suggest your complete satisfaction with the accommodation, finding somewhat inexplicable your complaints. The furniture and equipment the of the villa are exactly the same as last year, and while wanting to make allowance for normal wear and tear, this cannot be of any real significance whereas the villa is only rented seasonally from May to September, and with no more than a half-dozen parties that have stayed there between your second last and last stay.
Briefly in response to the disputed issues:
Fans - 4 available, maybe not all in sight (in storeroom) it would have been enough to ask the owner instead of buying one personally.
Beds – issues with bed quality not reported by any other guest, published TA reviews confirming this.
Bedroom linking to the kitchen - The room in question is connected with a kitchen/dining/living room, rather common in almost all the houses.
Drain – has been fixed
Kitchen size – adequate size for the house capacity
Dishwasher & washing machine cycle times – within the norm, maybe just some operating instructions required (for this and any other kind of assistance the owner is always very helpful)

"Brillant Villa - attached vine yards and Olive groves"
The villa's advertising did not deceive. This is, although on the top side of costs, a great villa & a great location. Only 35 minutes from Siena, one hour 20 from Florence and a 20 min, drive to… More

"On top of the mountain..."
When driving on the driveway of the property domain we were astonished by the fantastic viewpoint on tuscan hills and vineyard on the domain. The house was clean and offered all the facilities as expected...swimming pool...BBQ...jacuzzi... The owner, Mr. Leoncini, offered us a great hospitality with some of his personal-made wine. Thanks Mr. Leoncini, we will be back.
