Further details indoors

Aquario apartment is on the lower ground level and accessed via a beautiful stone staircase which opens views over the verdant grounds and superb pool. On request guests at this apartment may use a secondary entrance gate located next to the entrance door. This facility makes this apartment ideal for guests with walking difficulties.

This elegant apartment is all on one level and boasts arched ceilings and wooden beams in line with traditional style. The superb covered loggia is equipped for al fresco meals as well as a lavish lawn with evergreen soft grass. A marvellous sundeck area with comfortable cauches and table provides guests with an utterly relaxing spot to enjoy a glass or two of local wine. Interiors are spacious and furnished with period and pieces of antiques, including an original 18th century wooden door by the main entrance. A roomy hallway leads to the 3 bedrooms (1 single use and 2 double rooms) and 2 prettly tiled spacious shower rooms (one is ensuite). The double rooms have also direct access to the private outdoor area.

Further details outdoors

One of the most evident highlights at this property is the luxuriate garden with a huge variety of plants so lavishly tended. Not to mention the stunning pool, surrounded by fantastic terracotta pots with flowers, sculptures and plenty of sun loungers.

The owners who highly prize their guests privacy and comfort, have built two fantastic sundecks, one for each apartment, with couches and tables to provide guests with great corners in total privacy.

Further details

The large property is completely fenced in and consists of two immaculately restored buildings, one of which is home to the discreet and friendly owners with their docile dog and a cat. They spend most of their time running their optician shop in town but are available in case of need. Their villa is accessed by a different entrance gate. When they are not in, guests can rely on the helpful caretaker.

The Tuscany region

Approx. driving distance to the nearest town, Gambassi Terme is less than 10mns while San Gimignano and Volterra are easily reached in less than 20mns on panoramic roads. Florence is a great destination for a full day out even by train from Castelfiorentino (20mns drive away) in about 1hr.

San Gimignano

Within minutes walking there is a good restaurant, a beauty centre and tennis court where you can pamper yourselves with body treatments leading you to the evening supper succumbing to the lure of the caretaker's delicious home cooking (available on request) right at your villa.

The golf court in Castelfalfi is found about 20mns away and many other interesting sights and eating out places are conveniently listed for guests on the informative villa book available at the villa and written by a professional local guide, who is available on request and for an extra to visit guests in resort.
