The villa is in a rural setting amid vineyards producing the famous white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano as well as Chianti grapes. There are also saffron fields on the approach through the country lanes and olive groves. Guests can see the nearest town of San Gimignano nestled at the other side of the valley just 6 km away. Siena is just 36 km away and Florence just 55 km away. Other towns within easy reach include Volterra (40km), Monteriggioni (24 km), Pisa (85 km) and Arezzo (115 km).
A note from Jo
This is very much a traditional villa in an idyllic rural setting. We particularly love the views across the valley from the swimming pool to the famous towers of San Gimignano.
