Exterior Description
(250 hectares)

This property in Tuscany, which has been owned by the same family since the 17th century, is part of a 13th century hamlet that includes an old farmhouse, wine cellars, olive oil mills, a carpenter shop, a small church, and stables. The property contains vineyards that produce a wonderful Chianti Classico, olive trees (which produce a tasty extra virgin olive oil), hay fields, and woods. The estate offers a view of rolling hills, the walled town of Monteriggioni, and in the distance, the towers of San Gimignano. Huge cypress trees line the unpaved, 500 meter driveway to the estate entrance.
The house is a spacious, rustic country home, independent from the villa, with a shared infinity-edge swimming pool (15m x 7m) and a garden area overlooking the vineyards. A large fig tree provides shade. There is a barbecue area and a table for outdoor dining (seats 12 people), as well as other garden furniture. The friendly and hospitable owners live on the third floor of the villa, and the guardians, as well as other farmers, live on the estate. The owners' dogs have their own enclosed garden; however, they can be heard during their daily walks on the property!

Besides this farmhouse (which can accommodate 12 people), there are other properties available for rent on the same Tuscan estate. There is a villa (sleeps 6) and another farmhouse composed to two units that sleep a total of 12. The entire estate can accommodate a total of 34 people. There is ample room for parking on the property. Overall, the house is a perfect retreat for family farmhouse vacations in Italy.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Our group of ten had a very enjoyable experience at the property.
Enjoyed Most:
The views were spectacular. Also the owner and her daughter were very pleasant and helpful.
Enjoyed Least:
Because we were the first renters of the season and it was an unusually late spring, it was quite chilly in the house.
Surrounding Area:
We were able to take day trips to Pisa, Florence and other small towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteriggioni. It was fairly far and you had to walk through a field so we never ended up walking into town.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring warm clothing if it is early in the season.
Directions:
The directions to the property were very good. We used a GPS and had no trouble finding the place.
Check In Out:
The check in and check out went very smoothly. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.

Overall:
Excellent overall experience. Owners very helpful in assisting in directions and restaurant reservations.
Enjoyed Most:
Layout, views, pool.
Enjoyed Least:
Drawbacks were inconsistent hot water and low pressure in showers, and the bedrooms were hot even with floor fans. Ceiling fans may have helped.
Surrounding Area:
What is not to enjoy. Tuscany is beautiful.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You could walk to Montereggioni. But by car it was a short ride.
Tips or Restaurants:
Need better directions to villa. GPS helped once we found the Property and could program. Il Pozzo in Montereggioni, and La Buccacia in Cortona. Day at beach at Porto Ercole suggested by Luisa was great.
