Holiday Rental House

The house is located in the heart of Tuscany, between Poggibonsi and San Gimignano, in a land full of history, tradition and culture but also ideal for going in search of typical craftwork and gastronomy and farming products. The present owner has refurbished the property fully respecting the architectural and landscape requisites of the facility and surrounding landscape: all the original stones have been used for the renovation and the floor is made from the original flat bricks from the ancient complex of the “Santa Maria della Scala” hospital in Siena.

The poolside has umbrellas, deck chairs and sunbeds, a table and a shower with warm water heated with solar panels. Comfortably furnished in Tuscan style.
