Overview

About the property

Beautiful location, in the center of Tuscany, 5 km from Poggibonsi. Right between Siena (25km) and Florence (40km). A special place to spend peaceful holidays in the Chianti area and to discover the historical towns surrounding the area.

A place to find your interior peace, where you can leave all your problems behind and be in contact with nature. Every season is special and brings different types of experiences.

The house can host up to 8 guests but can be also enjoyable for couples, looking for its own private space.

Guests coming in this place will have exclusive access to the swimming pool (warm season only), and outdoor space. The biggest portion of the Villa will be completely at guests' disposition.

You'll be staying right in the heart of Chianti area, this means that guests coming here to enjoy the typical regional food, have found the right place to stay. And do not forget to pay a visit to the medieval towns located in the nearby.

About Giacomo

The objective of all this, is to share this fortune with you guest!

After being travelling around europe, I realized how I love this place and want to give my guests the chance to fully enjoy it.

Professionally I am a kitchen chef and an alternative music reviwer, owning more than 1000 albums. My free time is mostly dedicated to wellness: from trekking the hills surrounding the house to playing boardgames with friends. Passionate in art, sports and healty food.

Frankly, I think I might be much more than a host, it is all a matter of trust.

...And I put my trust on you Guest!

You are renting an entire villa. The owner lives in a small portion of the house, completely separeated from the part you're renting. There won't be any other guest than you.

The use of the swimming pool is exclusive to the guests.

Property is in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay we had hot weather but the house was cool and the pool was great. It's location is great we went to Siena, Florence (3 times) and Pisa. All within 1.5 hours by car or train. Giacomo the owner lives in site although he was on vacation half the time he was always attentive, and since he works we always had the place for ourselves. Overall it was a great experience.

Our best rental ever. More than we expected. 10 weeks of happiness. Giacomo is the perfect host.

  • 5 of 5

Grazie Giacomo for being Giacomo. You are one of a kind. We, our children and grand children enjoyed the villa tremendously. Beautiful big house with all the amenities and the pool was again more than we had expected. The villa is ideally located, quiet and close to town and the important services: train and bus stations, highway to Florence and Sienna. 45 mins from the Florence airport. We particularly enjoyed the possibility of 2 terraces with great views, front and back, for all our meals taken outside. We would not hesitate one second to go back or to recommend to our friends and family. Finally, we recommend the restaurant at Hotel Alcide in Poggibonsi where Giacomo will make you discover the pleasures of a real and outstanding fish and seafood experience. We know........we went 4 times!!!!!!!! Grazie mille Giacomo, un grande abbraccio. Ciao, ciao!!!!!!!!! Pierre and Isabelle.......and the kids.

Quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay.

Giacomo is very welcoming, he lives at the end of the property but is at work most of the time. On our arrival he made some excellent recommendations on places to visit and sights to see. When you see him he is like an old neighbour who has lived next door for years.

The property is very quiet, private and secluded. It has everything you need and it has the benefit of quite possibly the best swimming pool in the whole of Tuscany with sunshine all day round.

I would highly recommend staying here and it is a great base to explore Chianti and Siena. We sincerely hope to visit again.

Thanks Giacomo!

Super sejour, au calme, bel environnement, piscine fabuleuse

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Giacomo, et nous sommes sentis chez nous très vite. La maison est bien, reste fraiche, l'environnement calme et magnifique (grande terrasse avec vue sur la campagne toscane) et fonctionnelle. La cuisine mériterait peut être quelques rafraichissement en termes d'équipement et ustensiles, mais cela ne nous a pas empêché de préparer de bons repas et barbecues! La piscine est vraiment superbe, très grande. La localisation de la maison permet de se reposer au calme de la campagne toscane et de rayonner facilement - Florence (50 minutes), Sienne (35 minutes), San Gimignano (35 minutes). Giacomo vit dans une partie attenante de la maison mais s'est montré tres discret. Merci pour tout Giacomo, nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances!!

Un petit coin de paradis dans un paysage somptueux au coeur de la Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Véritable havre de paix, la villa est située dans un écrin de beauté de paysage Toscan.

La villa est de construction ancienne, une grande terrasse entoure la maison, le site est très calme, un très beau jardin entoure la villa, la piscine est très grande, le paysage est somptueux. On aperçoit un château Toscan depuis la terrasse, quel moment magnifique le dîner!

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié de nous retrouver dans cet endroit calme, reposant et beau à proximité des sites de Toscane comme Sienne et Florence ainsi que l'accueil chaleureux et discret du propriétaire.
