    Property description
    San Gimignano
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Osservatorio is a stunning villa for up to 11guests divided into two independent units.

    Orione apartment for up to 6 guests.

    The property is extraordinarily cool and pleasant throughout the summer, thanks to its location on a higher altitude (about 500 AMSL) and the beautiful structure in heavy stones. This magnificent country home offers no compromise in comfort either, providing guests with comfortable sitting areas, satellite televisions and WiFi connection. Attention to details and special touches are a common feature all over the villa.

    Please note that you are booking directly with the owners, the Guazzinis without paying any agency fee. However due to our lack of language skills, your enquiries will be replied by our local assistant, Ms Serena Brachi who speaks fluent English an...

From the moment you drive into the 'Osservatorio' grounds you know that you are in for a treat - and you won't be disappointed. Orione and another apartment , Acquario, are in a large house, built in the grounds of the owners, Neva and Giovanni. Orione is the larger and is wonderfully furnished with a balcony at the back which... more

The owners, who live next door,were unobtrusive but very welcoming and kind. The inside of the villa is beautifully furnished and spacious but the outdoor spaces are spectacularly good with a wealth of different sitting areas for both sun and shade. Luxurious seating including a terrific hammock! The infinity swimming pool is generously sized and a decent depth. The gardens... more
