'Podere Collinella' has been re-built to a high standard, retaining the charm of a Tuscan farmhouse.The walls are of the old stone, chestnut beams support the ceiling, and positioned on a slight hill has wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Podere Collinella is a group of converted farm buildings in a beautiful rural location. It is in a small development sharing a large communal pool and enjoying amazing 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside. Ideally placed between San Gimignano and the former Etruscan capital, Volterra, it is the perfect location for exploring Tuscany.

The apartment is light and spacious with doors leading from the sitting room and the bedroom onto terraces and pretty gardens.The bedroom has ample room for a cot, there is also a double sofa bed in the living room. The apartment is unique in that it has two gardens so that one can sip a glass of Chianti and enjoy the sunset at the back of the property, or relax in the sun on the south facing terrace at the front. It is fully equipped for comfort and there are added little luxuries which guests have appreciated. The views are stunning and location peaceful yet within easy reach of the major attractions of Tuscany.
