EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION
Originally a barn, Villa San Gimignano lies on the ‘Via Francigena’, the old medieval Pilgrim route that leads from northern Europe to Rome. The property still maintain its original and classical style, with old Tuscan windows, attractive internal brickwork, wooden beams and the terra-cotta tiles on the floors. The villa has stunning views of the surrounding countryside, dotted by cypresses and vineyards which produces one of the most famous wines of this territory: the 'Vernaccia of San Gimignano'.
The house can be reached by a 800m unpaved road (not suggested for sport cars), which leads to the small village of Pancole, and a lovely garden of over 1800 mq, with roses, fruit trees and aromatic herbs. The large rectangular salt water pool (7x14) is harmoniously set in splendid grounds and surrounded by a sun terrace with comfortable sun loungers and parasols at the guests' disposal. Al fresco lunches and dinners can be enjoyed with a good glass of wine combined with a tasty “bistecca”, thanks to the barbecue area in the garden.

INTERNAL DESCRIPTION
The villa is set all on one floor with a few steps here and there and with its 200 mq can accommodate up to 10 people (8 in bedrooms and 2 in a double sofa bed). The predominant colours that characterize the interiors of the house are yellow ocher and old rose.
The old style Tuscan furniture of the living room adds even more charm to this typical country villa: the interiors are light and airy: the living area is furnished with comfortable leather sofas and satellite TV. Above the living room there is a wooden-floor gallery with a double sofa-bed, which can host 2 extra guests, and a reading corner, ideal for relaxing or listening to music. Through a stone arch (1 step down) you can access the kitchen, fully equipped with a large table for 12/15 people and a typical wood-burning oven to experience the preparation of tasty pizzas. On the other side of the living room, there are the 4 bedrooms and the 3 bathrooms with all the facilities.
A spiral staircase connects the ground floor to the laundry area (washing machine, iron and ironing board).
The villa is air conditioned only in one bedroom.

OUR OPINION
Villa San Gimignano is an ideal place for living the typical Tuscan atmosphere, immersed in the countryside and surrounded by typical hamlets such as San Gimignano. Privacy, splendid panoramas and space are the strong points of this property. We remember that the access to the villa is granted by a 800m unpaved road.
