Lovely homely apartment with great views in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on the ground floor, spacious and homely, with a table on the terrace and a path down to a shared infinity pool that you can swim in and has beached sides, with gardens around. All this in Tuscany woodland and beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed a very peaceful week resting and venturing out to nearby towns for supplies when they ran out. Also enjoyed a pleasant meal at Casa Masi largely because of the gardens and the steak florentine (just past Montaione).

I am delighted that you enjoyed both my property and its surroundings and that you were able to rest and relax well during this stay. The restaurant Casa Masi is indeed very good and their large gardens very well tended. Good choice for an evening out! Hope to have you as guests again at some point in the future. Take care

A taste of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Boscaiola is like finding a corner of paradise. The accommodation is wonderful. The aerial photos really don’t do it justice as it is on the edge of the hamlet and feels very secluded. The apartment is very tastefully furnished and has everything you need to relax and unwind. Just a short walk down the track is the infinity pool with breath-taking views across the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

The accommodation is perfectly situated to explore the region (we visited Pisa, Florence, Volterra and San Gimignano, all within comfortable driving distances).

We had the pleasure of meeting Danièle, the owner of the property who is a charming and very interesting lady and we could not have hoped for a warmer welcome.

I cannot recommend this property enough; from the second you arrive, you cannot help but feel relaxed, immersed in the beauty of everything around you. We will definitely go back one day.

Hope that cat and chickens are happy to have you back and that the garden is back in shape! I will be looking forward to having you stay at a later stage. You will be always welcome. Take care for now

Fantastic Tuscan Honeymoon!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment (Borgo)! An amazingly beautiful setting, off the beaten track, secluded, yet in a great location to explore areas of Tuscany such as Volterra, St Gimignano, Siena and the Chianti region. The Borgo is very well built and in perfect condition, tastefully decorated and is well equipped for every eventuality, cooking utensils, washing machine, dishwasher, comfortable bed, great bathroom, patio area for eating. A very important feature is the level of air conditioning, which is very efficient!! The infinity pool was certainly a high point! Beautiful views across the landscape, nice temperature. We would go off to local villages in the morning and spend the afternoons at the pool, quite often on our own but often with other guests from other Borgo's, who were always respectful and friendly. Thank you very much Danièle for a lovely stay in this area!! Highly Recommended!!! Ian & Jules!!

Beautiful apartment in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful break in a traditional borgo (but with all modern facilities wifi, dishwasher etc) this is the place. The way the borgo is set out most of the time you don't realise anyone else is there and the only time we met fellow guests was at the pool, which you can tell from the pictures is breathtaking.

The range of wildlife is amazing, butterflies and fireflies at night and I one occasion a deer. The only unwelcome guests are the mozzies but you cannot escape them in a woodland setting.

Whilst being away from it all (car essential) volterra is only a 20 min drive and the nearest restaurant (v good quality ) is less than 2k. Altogether a magnificent place to stay.

Absolutely Beautiful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a couple. Nice kitchen, well supplied cookware, utensils and place settings. We cooked breakfast and dinner everyday. Conveniently situated for day trips to Tuscan hill top villages. One hour from Florence. The architectural details of this building and of the village are very tasteful. The landscape and plantings are quite attractive (we cut rosemary and thyme from the back patio to season our meals). Gorgeous view from the back patio and a terrific little spot to sit and enjoy a meal or cup of tea or coffee or glass of wine. We absolutely loved our stay!

About Mrs Danièle Vance

retired Swiss citizen, speaking French, English, German and Italian. I love to travel, read, go the theatre and have a pronounced taste for good food, good wine and cosy surroundings. Enjoy Italy since childhood's vacations.

Tuscany was the evident choice.

Mrs Danièle Vance purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Mrs Danièle Vance chose Gambassi Terme

I always loved Tuscany and through Italian friends, I discovered Borgo Mummialla during its reconstruction. I so decided to acquire a property for myself and two others for renting to allow others to enjoy the place as well. So in 2011 I bought a ruin which became the house you see on the pictures! In the center of the village there is another beautiful apartment awaiting you if you decide to travel with another couple. Look for Mostelia in the same village.

What makes this apartment unique

The reconstruction quality according to the very strict norms and the perfect choice of craftsmen involved in this work, confers to this village an outstanding atmosphere where both Tuscan traditions are mixed with modern comfort. Then there are the exceptional surroundings : quiet, birds singing, great views, etc.

Borgo Mummialla is a recently rebuilt historical center in the middle of nature. Out of ruins it has been restructured entirely in the Tuscan style and confers to the place an atmosphere of calm, serenity and loveliness. Close to San Gimignano, Volterra, Sienna and Florence it is perfect for relaxing by the pool, or on the individual garden and terrace after a long day's visit. The closest ATM/bank or supermarkets are at 15 minutes distance. Medical services either First Aid in Montaione or hospitals of Poggibonsi or Volterra
