Guests are free to wander the estate where there are over 10 acres of private land, ideal for enjoyable walks in the country, amazingly medieval San Gimignano with its historic monuments, art galleries and wide selction of shops and restaurants is just waiting to be explored only 10 minutes walk away. The panoramic area where there is the swimming pool extends almost until the alternative road of the town. Magno on the ground floor of the villa, is delightfully furnished to a very high standard including many antique pieces and family heirlooms. A wood burning fireplace forms the centrepiece of the comfortable lounge. The large kitchen invites you to prepare delicious meals and has two large arched glass doors opening on to the garden. There are two characteristic bedrooms which also open onto side garden areas. The private garden which surrounds Magno enjoys a fine panorama of the countryside. Furnished with sun umbrella, table and chairs and immaculately maintained, it is the perfect spot for dining alfresco, or just enjoying a chilled glass of 'Vernaccia di San Gimignano' whilst taking in the view and enjoying the essence of the Tuscan countryside. A few steps away is the beautiful swimming pool. Framed by a paved terrace and lawns, the pool has a beautiful view over the olive groves of the estate, creating the ideal surroundings for relaxing and enjoying a refreshing swim after a busy day's sightseeing. There is a communal laundry room for guests use, a barbecue and WiFi internet connection is also available at a small local charge. The owners, Vittorio and Marina, who live in Florence have a small detached cottage on the estate which they occasionally use. They are friendly and helpful whilst not intruding on your privacy. Parking is in the grounds below the house. When you can tear yourself away from this idyllic country retreat, the medieval hilltop towns of Colle di Val d'Elsa 'City of Crystal' and Volterra famous for its alabaster are within half an hour's drive, whilst both Siena and Florence are easily accessible via the road, bus and rail links at Poggibonsi only 12km away.
