Three Bedroom First Floor Apartment San Gimignano
Tinaia is a gorgeous apartment on the wine producing estate of Le Vigne. From the cypress lined drive, the first view of San Gimignano rises majestically on the skyline and can be seen from almost every corner of the farm. Spacious and comfortably furnished in typical Tuscan style Tinaia has its own area in the pretty stone courtyard for dining al fresco, and the gardens and swimming pool of the estate both enjoy spectacular views.
Tinaia is a lovely apartment on the first floor of the house, furnished in Tuscan style with beamed ceilings and terracotta floors, it has pretty views of the verdant countryside from all its windows. There is a comfortable lounge area, separated from the kitchen/dining area by an archway, and each bedroom has its own shower room, two of which are ensuite. The apartment has its own area in the pretty stone courtyard furnished with table and chairs for dining alfresco and there are spectacular views from the estate’s grounds of San Gimignano rising up on the horizon.
From the garden a rose bordered pathway leads through the grounds to the lovely swimming pool (14m x 7m). Set in a beautiful position slightly above the house, the pool, furnished with sunloungers, sun umbrellas and gazebo is surrounded by grassy terraces, pretty flower beds, and olive groves and enjoys a wonderful panorama of the countryside and the towers of San Gimignano beyond.
The estate is composed of the main farmhouse and other detached buildings. In part of the house the owner resides, the rest forms four spacious apartments which are rented. The other detached buildings house another two apartments and the winery. The owners in fact produce a variety of excellent wines as well as local olive oil, and guests will find that they are free to wander the grounds and experience first hand the everyday life of a Tuscan wine producer.
With the sun setting behind San Gimignano, and the unique view, it’s tempting to dine alfresco with a good bottle of the estate’s famous wine, but when you can tear yourself away, you will find that there is an excellent selection of restaurants within easy driving distance. The estate also provides breakfast on request (prebookable/payable locally).
Wi fi internet access is also available and there is a laundry room with washing machine for guests use, as well as a little play area for children.
This blissful country retreat is perfectly location for touring the area. Colle di Val d’Elsa, famous for its medieval quarter and local crystal production is just 5km down the road whilst Poggibonsi with its road and rail links to Florence and Siena is only 9km away, making the rest of Tuscany and its many treasures easily accessible.
