You could not ask for a more special place in which to celebrate an important anniversary or simply spend a vacation with your family and friends !

I Melograni is a beautiful antique,indipendent, "casale" with large swimming pool (5x12 sqm), 1km far away (walking distance!) from the village of San Giovanni d'Asso in the heart of Siena countryside.

The house is suitable either for a party of 10 (5 AC bedrooms,5 bathrooms) or for a party of 6 (3 AC bedrooms,3 bathrooms-the other part of the house remains close and vacant).

Nestled in an olive grove with a large lawn just in front of the house, words can't even describe the beauty of the view.You can easily travel throughout Tuscany, as the house is strategically located, but I bet your favourite days will be spent here at I Melograni,relaxing,swimming,reading,laughing and enjoying one another.......

San Giovanni d'Asso is a tiny village provided with all basics : bank,post office,chemist shop, butcher's,supermarket,cafè and 2 nice restaurants. On the second and third weekend of November a famous White Truffle fair takes place in the ancient Castle.

You can experience a tour to discover the world of truffles with a guide and his dogs,or have a wine and truffle tasting in our old cellar (back to the XVI century).

Also we have a very good cook who can prepare nice dinners at the house and cooking lessons.

The house is spread on 2 levels:

GROUND FLOOR: 2 fully equipped kitchens 2 sitting rooms, one of them with fireplace,dining room, guest toilet.

FIRST FLOOR : 2 AC double bedrooms and an AC twin-double one with ensuite bathrooms, an AC double bedroom , an AC twin-double one ,2 family bathrooms (5 AC BEDROOMS,5 FULL BATHROOMS in total). Another large sitting room with fireplace and ceilng fans is located at the first floor.

THE HOUSE CAN BE RENTED IN PART (3BDR,3 BATHROOMS,suitable for a party of 6):in this case the other part of the house REMAINS CLOSED AND VACANT to ensure our guests'privacy.

A beautiful spot in the centre of an area famous in art and history: Siena the town famous for the Palio is 40 km away.

The Palio takes place twice a year ; on July 2nd and on August 16th.

Montalcino(17 km), Pienza(25 km), Bagno Vignoni (20 km), Montepulciano (30 km). Florence is at a driving distance of an hour and a half, Rome at 2 hours. Perfect for 2 families or a party of friends travelling together. There is a sort of "pool house" near the pool with another complete bathroom, a kitchenette, a beautiful "Loggia" with a large table and chairs.

San Giovanni d'Asso

San Giovanni d'Asso is the typical rural Tuscan village :it lies in a not yet well known area of the countryside near Siena.An ancient castle,a Romanesque church back to XI century,a magic wood, wonderful sunsets make this place very special.It is a tiny village where you can find a bank,post office,supermarket,chemist shop,butcher shop,cafè,2 nice restaurants.A beautiful spot in the middle of an area rich in art and history:Montalcino(15 km),Pienza(24 Km),Bagno Vignoni(20 km),Montepulciano(30 km) are just a few destination you can reach in less than half an hour driving. Siena ,the town famous for Il Palio (IL PALIO TAKES PLACE TWICE A YEAR ON JULY 2ND AND AUGUST 16TH) is 40 minutes driving from the village,Florence at 1 hour and a half. Car essential.

In November (2nd and 3rd weekend of the month) a famous WHITE TRUFFLE FAIR takes place in the castle of the village.

It is an ideal moment to taste the new oil (OLIO NUOVO) as well.

"Gorgeous villa in Tuscany"

This is a gorgeous villa in the tuscan countryside. The villa was beautiful, spotless and had everything we needed. It is right next to the small town of San Giovanni D'Osso. My 16-year-old loved it as well. While we day-tripped to surrounding towns including Sienna and Florence, we always enjoyed coming back to the villa to swim and prepare dinner. I can't wait for the next time when we can return there with our friends. Great hosts as well.

Thank you for your nice words,I am happy you had a nice stay at our house
I am looking forward to meeting you and your family again!
Best wishes
