San Gimignano Country House | Tuscany
“Producing its own wine and extra-virgin olive oil, this elegant country property is surrounded by 14 hectares of curated vineyards and, after a careful renovation dedicated to painting the traditional farmhouse style, is ready to accomodate guests in all luxury and comfort”.
With approximately 400 square meters, this 18th century San Gimignano Country House was restored in 2012 with materials recovered from the region – local stones and terracotta, to name a few. After a meticulously traditional restoration to mimic the original style of the property, the elegant country furnishings combined with high-tech equipments make sure to bring absolute comfort to guests.
The ground floor is composed mainly by the house’s common areas, among which a spacious lounge area, with the house’s original stone fireplace and a piano, the elegant dining room featuring imposing glass doors that connect the space to the outside garden, a TV room with a 60″3D flat-screen TV and stereo equipment, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen as well as a guest bathroom.
On the upper floor lie the property’s 4 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning units, accommodating up to 8 guests. Across the San Gimignano Country House, the once farmhouse work space has been converted into a charming apartment, comprised of a double bedroom that can accommodate up to 2 people, a bathroom and a dining and living space complete with a fireplace.
Encompassed by 14 hectares of enchanting vineyards and olive trees, the 14×7 meter swimming pool faces directly onto the vineyards. Here certified organic extra-virgin olive oil, white and red wine are produced.
Between the main structure and the separated apartment, the pool shares the outside space with a lovely lounge area, where a large table is ready to host outdoor meals and get-togethers.
The property is located at only 3 km from the remarkable town of San Gimignano, a small walled medieval hill town in the heart of Tuscany. Known as the Town of Fine Towers, San Gimignano boasts “an unforgettable skyline”, according to UNESCO, which declared the city heritage of humanity. The beautiful towns of Siena, Florence, Pisa, Volterra and Cortona are other typical day trips from the villa. Also the Chianti valleys are located a short distance.
