» Gufo (1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2)

Ground floor large studio composed of living/dining room with fireplace, twin or double bed. Separate kitchen and shower room and toilet. It has a patio and a furnished garden beside the house with its own barbecue. It is highly recommended for couples and honeymooners.

» Rondine (1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2+1)

Looking out over the valley towards the skyline of S.Gimignano, Rondine is approached by an outside stone staircase at the side of the house. A little hallway opens into the double bedroom with pretty prints and good traditional furniture, (the keynote is green); and into a good shower room /toilet. The attractive living room, with its efficient kitchen corner, has a view over the valley. The garden is provided with garden furniture and its own barbecue.

» Pettirosso (1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2+1)

Pettirosso is the most inviting flat with its own quiet spacious garden with good tubs, furniture and barbecue and a private balcony. A green painted iron staircase leads up to the balcony, well equipped to eat outside or sunbathe. French windows open into the spacious bedroom, with wrought iron bedsteads and sunny yellow curtains and covers. The well fitted shower room and toilet is white and furnished with terracotta; and the very comfortable living room with a neat kitchen corner again opens onto the balcony. This is a secluded and charming place to stay.

» Passero (2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4)

The ground floor of the farmhouse makes a pleasant apartment for a family or for two couples. A French doors open off a little terrace and at the front of the farmhouse with a spacious, bright living room looking out over the front garden and the valley below. It has a small and pretty fireplace and a stenciled frieze around the walls. The purpose built kitchen corner, with marble countertops and solid wooden doors, is fully equipped. The main bedroom has wrought iron bedsteads with charming flowered bedspreads and curtains; the picturesque twin bedded room (which can be double), painted rose pink, has a brick vaulted ceiling, herringbone cotta tiles on the floor and an intriguingly shaped window. The well fitted shower room /toilet has fresh green tiles. The garden is shaded by trees, well furnished with its own barbecue.

» Falco (2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4)

Just up the lane from the farmhouse, there is a smaller farm cottage. The cosy sitting room has 17th century beams, a good "terracotta" floor, a sofa and armchairs, a pretty glass fronted dresser, solid dining table and rush chairs. There is a small but very efficient kitchen screened by a low wall in one corner. The double bedroom is quite elegant. A ladder leads up to a tiny gallery with 2 single beds which would be suitable for young boys or girls. Falco has the attraction of its own raised, flagged terrace, with a barbecue. This is well planted, with olives, yucca and agape. Falco would suit a young family, or make a peaceful retreat for a couple.

The Tuscany region

Central Tuscany is where every image of Tuscany seems to leap into life , from rolling hills planted with seemingly endless rows of wine , or topped with dark straight cypresses, to medieval villages of mellow golden stone hiding tiny trattorie where a simple lunch can become a memorable meal,washed down with Tuscany's most famous export : Chianti.

Poggibonsi 2 Km. medieval and modern town with supermarkets, shops and entertainements.

S.Gimignano 11 KM. medieval city , famous for its towers and the landscape

La Badia Golf Club 7 km.

Thermal bath at Gambassi Terme 15 km or Rapolano Terme 40km.

or fish restaurants in Poggibonsi like 'Alcide ' or 'La Galleria' where you can enjoy every kind of fish from the Tirreno sea . We can also arrange cooking lessons nearby , plase ask when booking .

Poggibonsi

Near Oliveta lies the town of S.Gimignano , a medieval masterpiece whose impressive towers dominate the landscape for miles around . Every summer you can enjoy classical music concerts, wine tasting , village feasts and much more.

There are literally dozens of pretty towns and villages to visit. It worth a visit Greve, Castellina and Radda ; Volterra an impressively sited town with sweeping views over the surrounding hills and even to the sea.

Siena smaller and quieter than Florence boasts a wealth of architectural treasure , from its distinctive black and white cathedral to the magnificent piazza known as il Campo.

Not to miss Monteriggioni and Colle val d'Elsa with impressive fortifications now more likely to be used as intimate small restaurants than for defence.

See the official web site from the Sienese tourist board (APT) Tere di Siena and enjoy exploring!
