About The Experience

So, you want to be located in a charming small town in Tuscany where you can have your morning cappuccino along with the locals? Look no further - this is the place for you! The beautifully restored buildings have been turned into gracious apartments which share a large pool overlooking the countryside. Each apartment is furnished with taste and style. Stay here with your family or friends... you won't want to leave!

Location Description

The property is located in the town of Barberino Val d'Elsa where there are shops, restaurants, a great pizzeria, a market, a bank, and a post office. Dating back to the Middle Ages, Barberino Val d'Elsa marks the midway point between Siena and Florence. The village has an ancient church, castle, chapel, and beautiful views of the olive groves and vineyards that make up much of the Chianti Classico region. San Gimignano, a town you can see from the farmhouse, is a great place to go for a day trip. As one of the most visited towns in Tuscany, it is known for its rich history dating back to the Etruscan times. It is full of life and things to do. Popular attractions include the famous towers, the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and several museums dedicated to artwork and archaeology. There are also plenty of wine tasting tours, art galleries, shops, and delicious restaurants. Numerous celebrations and gatherings are held every year including a music festival featuring theater, ballet, and opera performances, and a Medieval Harvest festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights, play medieval games, and have tournaments. Of course, you'll also want to visit Florence and Siena during your trip and a train station in Certaldo, which is only 15 minutes away from the property, can get you there easily and conveniently.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
We had a wonderful 2 weeks with friends and family and would love to return again. This vacation was among the best ever.
Enjoyed Most:
The villa is configured so that there are two separate areas for 2 families with shared kitchen and living room. We could eat out on the terrace and had a fabulous view. It was very easy to walk into the village for groceries, restaurants, the bus stop, etc.
Enjoyed Least:
The three main villas each have their own terrace but they share a common area so it is not totally private space. However, all the guests were friendly and respectful of one another.
Surrounding Area:
Sonia, the property manager, was very friendly and helpful. After making arrangements with her, we drove to the winery associated with the villa and took a peaceful country walk near the winery. We also took day trips by car, bus or train to neighboring hill towns as well as Florence, Cinque Terre, and Assisi.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The villa is perfectly situated in San Barberino Val d'Elsa so we walked into the village. Used our car to go to Tavernelle for a larger grocery store and cell phone shop 2 km away.
Tips or Restaurants:
The two restaurants by the church were good and had outside seating with a terrific view.
Directions:
GPS is very helpful. My iPad mini, with an ATT monthly contract and data roaming turned off, was still helpful because we could see where we were on its map.
Check In Out:
The second week, I had rented 1 and 5 to accommodate additional family members. Their check-in was delayed but, in the end, Sonia made 2 available which was fantastic and convenient for our gathering. 5 is smaller than 1 but the two villas are furnished and renovated in an identical way.

Overall:
Lovely!
Enjoyed Most:
Quiet. Could walk to a small market and the scenic old village.
Enjoyed Least:
A certain amount of traffic from others who were staying within the gates.
Surrounding Area:
Access by car, bus, or rail to a number of hill towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
It was in essence within the small town. Very convenient.
Tips or Restaurants:
Layers in regards to clothing! I enjoyed cooking at the villa. The younger set brought in pizza frequently.
Directions:
I wasn't driving, so I don't know. We did not have a GPS. Perhaps a map of the area around San Barberino would be nice to have.
Check In Out:
Sonia is lovely.
