Poggibonsi cottage description

The landscape surrounding the little hamlet of Gavignano is completely quiet and unspoiled, making a perfect setting for a country holiday, ideal for gentle walks and picnics. The towers of S. Gimignano are just visible across the valley. Podere OLiveta which translates as 'Olive grove Farm' consists of 5 different apartments which enjoy a pretty location up in the hills .Each apartment has its own independent entrance and own garden area with barbecue. Much careful thought has gone into decoration, furnishing and ensuring the apartments are equipped down to the last detail. There is a swimming pool surrounded by a sun terrace which has stunning views overlooking the rolling olive clad hills, the sprinkling of cypresses trees and the majestic towers of S. Gimignano in the distance. Local wine and olive oil can be bought nearby. Podere Oliveta enjoys a location with easy access to the main routes to Florence and Siena.
Podere Oliveta is a good choice for exploring central Tuscany. The main attractions of the region can be reached very easily. The highway which connects Florence to Siena is only 3 km distant. And the villa's location only 3 km from the railway station of Poggibonsi is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car: You can park your car in Poggibonsi (free parking behind the railway station) and take the train in both directions. During the week, trains to Florence/Siena and back go regularly (approx. every 1. hour). The train ride takes about 30 minutes to Siena and 1. hour to Florence. In Florence the train will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station 'Santa Maria Novella' to the Cathedral or the Uffizi. In Siena the railway station is located approx. 1 km from centre, and you may have to take a bus to reach the old town on top of the hill or take the escalator.

                              Podere Oliveta is located 200m from the hamlet to Gavignano. Set on the top of the hill which overlooks the whole country side. It is in the center of Tuscany with easy access to main routes towards Florance (30min by car), Siena (20min), Volterra, San Gimignano, the villages and castles of Chianti. In the area you can find good restaurants and shops.

                              Arriving by car from the north: leave the highway A1 'Autostrada del Sole' at the exit Firenze Certosa and take the motorway Firenze-Siena. Drive along (34km) this road as far as Poggibonsi Nord. At the roundabout folow the directions to Poggibonsi centre and drive for about 500m. Turn left in to the first road on your left towards Gavignano and drive for other 1,8km. Pass the little hamlet of Gavignano and the end of the asphalted road you'll see a sign Oliveta on your right. Coming from the South: drive until Siena and then follow the direction towards Firenze. Take the motorway Siena-Firenze till the exit of Poggibonsi Nord.
