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 very nice stay, and we would stay there again. It was convenient to Florence and other cities. We spent our days away from the villa, so our time there was in the evenings.
Enjoyed Most:
The view from the outside area is superb, and the proximity to the old city and the restaurants was great. There is a store across the street where you can buy coffee, wine, and other small items. There is plenty of room both inside and out. Sonia is a great host.
Enjoyed Least:
The common area was shared by a few units, which worked out fine with us.
Surrounding Area:
The town of Barberino was very nice. Restaurants in the old town were good, and the people extremely friendly. The views from the Villa and the town were beautiful.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Barberino was within easy walking distance, and there was a small store and post office across the street.
Tips or Restaurants:
The restaurants in the town were all good, particularly the two close to the church. The store across the street was also very helpful for coffee, small breakfast items, wine, and supplies. We went to the grocery store in the next town, which was easy to find and well supplied.
Directions:
The villa is very close to the post office in Barberino. If you put that into your GPS, the villa driveway is on the right just past the destination. Also, the road up the hill to the old town is one lane on the right just past the Villa driveway.
Check In Out:
The process was very smooth and flexible. We used WhatsApp to communicate with Sonia, and she was very helpful and friendly.

Overall:
Beautiful view, being close to a small village but feeling like you're in the country was so nice.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and location.
Enjoyed Least:
You will need a car. We hired a driving service. But that's why you will have a Tuscan village experience!
Surrounding Area:
Quiet, quaint, authentic.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Val D'elsa. You are basically in the village. From the gates entering property turn right, climb a small road into the village proper.
Tips or Restaurants:
We enjoyed eating at the pizza place directly up the road turning right after the gates. I can't recall the name but Julio took very good care of us and made us wonderful meals! Also take time to visit the church in the town.
Directions:
We had a driver pick us up at the airport and he communicated with our rental manager. Smooth.
Check In Out:
Everything was great. Easy. Regardless of slight language difficulties nothing was unclear to us. The property manager was happy, gracious and helpful.
