About the Property
2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Apartment in the heart of Tuscany
The ' Borgo'- off the old Roman ' Via Volterrana 'has been rebuilt from ruins. Italian heritage laws are very strict and the whole village has been reconstructed on the same footprint as the original. Now we have a wonderful place for visitors to come and enjoy the Tuscan countryside within easy reach of all that Tuscany has to share with the world. 'Casa Bartoli' is part of what was a large farm building and is now a modern spacious 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment. The bathrooms are beautifully tiled in travertine marble.Terracotta tiled floors and ceilings with huge wooden beams supporting the roof are typical of the area. The main bedroom has a double bed and the second -which is a larger room-has two single beds which can be used as a double bed...both bathrooms have no baths-but showers are excellent with plenty of hot water supplied from the solar( supplemented by gas) system. All kitchen utensils and appliances are new- dishwasher,2 small fridges (one with freezer), gas stove and oven.A new fully automatic washing machine is also provided.The dining area inside seats 6 people comfortably-or dine outside at the 'al fresco' table under the trees... The swimming pool and spa are just wonderful for a dip after a hot days touring. Here you are central to all that Tuscany has to offer.There are many good restaurants nearby- just up the road- the nearest is ' Boscotondo" about 10minutes drive. For grocery shopping if you prefer to dine under the trees at home- there is the big PAM supermarket in Poggibonsi, the COOPs in San Gimignano and Certaldo or the smaller minimarket in Gambassi Terme. A day trip to Florence ( or Siena )is easy by train from the station in Certaldo,avoiding the driving and parking problems associated with each city. The ' Borgo ' down a quiet road in the countryside between San Gimignano and Volterra...here you will find your sanctuary ...please come and enjoy the wonders of the Tuscany countryside from a very central location...

Borgo Mummialla is a little 'off the beaten track' down a gravel road in the countryside between San Gimignano and Volterra, near the ancient Bagni Di Mommialla hot springs on the Roman ' Via Volterrana'. This once abandoned 'Borgo' or farming hamlet has been rebuilt under strict Italian heritage laws to retain the original external dimensions and materials. Internally all is new and modern-but we have tried to keep the 'country' feel as much as possible. Environmental considerations include solar hot water and energy efficient appliances including a small washing machine. There is a dedicated outdoor 'al fresco' dining area with table and chairs under the trees for 'Casa Bartoli' guests ...The large swimming pool is wonderful....It is available to all guests at the 'Borgo' -some rules apply so please check these and park your car in the car park back up the entry road after dropping off your baggage..This is a great central location to explore all of Tuscany as Florence, Siena,Pisa and the coast are an easy day trip from here.San Gimignano and Volterra are 15 to 20 minutes drive from the Borgo. The choice of vineyards for wine tasting and cellar door sales are innumerable and the ' Gallo Nero' Chianti Classico region is a nice day trip.If you fancy a day in Florence-leave your car at Certaldo station and catch a train..you will be there in about an hour and will avoid driving and parking hassles. Even if you want to spend a night in Florence-leave the car in Certaldo and pick it up next day...A stay at ' Casa Bartoli ' gives you the unique experience of staying in a once deserted farming village brought back to life by local people who see the value in their heritage.... there are several good restaurants nearby and for grocery shopping there is a large 'PAM' supermarket in Poggibonsi, COOPs in San Gimignano and Certaldo or a smaller-but still very good little shop in Gambassi Terme. After a big day touring and sight seeing there is nothing better than to return to the tranquility of Borgo Mummialla,away from the crowds,have a swim in the pool and just relax with only the sounds of nature..( and a glass of vino), under the trees or by the pool....
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I am an Australian, my wife is Japanese and we live in Sydney.Both of us have been very interested in travel from an early age, having met in the late 1960's working for a well known Australian airline. We have traveled to many parts of the world-but Florence and Tuscany have become our favourite holiday destinations. We are now retired, still enjoy travel and catering for guests in our Tuscan home.
Why the Owner Chose Gambassi Terme, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy:
My wife and I first visited Florence and San Gimignano in 1995.We then came back numerous times as we loved this part of Tuscany. We made friends with the owners of the Agriturismo we always stayed near San Gimignano and they introduced us to this development at 'Borgo Mummialla' where they and some dedicated local people were going to rebuild the 'Borgo' from total ruins. The village was abandoned many years ago and all the buildings had to be rebuilt from the ground up.Strict heritage laws ensured the reconstruction retained as much of the stone and terracotta etc from the original buildings as possible. Having had dreams of owning a house in Tuscany and knowing the people involved reassured us that this was a top quality development and we took the plunge....in the deep end...we now hope we can share this unique development with other visitors to our house....
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The original farmhouse buildings have been reconstructed from the ground up using a lot of the old materials,but everything inside is new including a washing machine,beds and all the kitchen appliances and equipment.Hotwater is supplied by a solar system ( with gas heater backup) as much thought went into enviromental best practice. The two bathrooms are beautifully tiled in travertine marble and the plumbing is all new...There are about 6-8 steps up from ground level to the front door-but once inside the apartment all is on one level. Most of the other apartments at 'Borgo Mummialla' are 2 storey,The swimming pool with spa is wonderful and great to come home to after a hot days touring as is the outdoor 'al fresco' dining area under the trees.The outdoor area is for use of 'Casa Bartoli' guests only-unless you invite the neighbours over of course. There is a great view across the valley,with Volterra on the horizon, from the kitchen and also the main bedroom..This is our 'dream come true' home in the heart of Tuscany... .
