Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Villa Toiano is a quaint, lovingly decorated property. The stones and the old ceiling beams have been incorporated into a beautifully-finished new country home that oozes personality and charm. Warm colours, soft furnishings and contemporary art play counterpoint to local antiques, woven rugs and terracotta floors.
Several of the air-conditioned bedrooms open directly to the garden and the bathrooms are bright and modern. French doors lead from the large and very well-equipped fitted kitchen to a dining loggia with wonderful views, and steps lead down between olive trees to the villa's private swimming pool on a sunny terrace at the foot of the garden.
The property boasts amazing 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside, where you can witness spectacular sunsets while sipping an aperitivo from the terrace!

The Tuscany region
Villa Toiano is an incredibly property from which a modern day visitor can experience the glory of Tuscany as it once was; unspoiled, friendly, with a fascinating history, interesting archaeological ruins, ancient olive groves, and the famous vineyards of Pisa's DOC Chianti region.
Until the middle of the 20th Century every village in Tuscany had a community oven, where villagers gathered weekly to bake their dough and enjoy a glass of vino. The advent of commercial bakeries and home appliances brought the practice to an end, and Toiano's oven, which dated from 1780, fell into disuse and, eventually, ruin. Villa Toiano was reborn from the stones of that ancient oven and the farmhouse that stood nearby.
Set in the middle of 40 acres of private land, this beautiful farmhouse overlooks rolling hills and its own olive grove, midway between San Gimignano and Pisa.
Come and discover why this magical place may be the perfect place to experience Tuscany as it once was, and perhaps even bake a loaf or two of your own thick-crusted country bread!
