Olivo is a delicious apartment of 40 square meters finely furnished. Once it was used as a place to keep the grape and olive picking equipment. The apartment, attached to the main building where the owners live, is composed of a living room with a corner-kitchen, a typical stone fireplace and a double divan-bed, which can be used on request, a bathroom with shower-box and a double bedroom with an antique original restored bed. From the bedroom one can enter into the large garden with a private area equipped with a table, a large garden umbrella, chairs and a barbecue for evening meals outside. Going up some stairs from the garden guests can reach a beautiful terrace with a brick floor, furnished with a table, chairs and a garden umbrella, where one can enjoy a wonderful view of the surrounding landscape.
"Podere degli Olivi" is a complex composed of an antique building and an old farmhouse which has been fully restored. From the recent restoration three pretty apartments have been obtained, all carefully and finely furnished in typical Tuscan style keeping the original characteristics of brick flooring and wooden beam ceilings." Immersed in the stillness of the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and secular cypress trees, Podere degli Olivi" is situated in a unique and enviable position only 1 kilometre away from S. Gimignano. The historical centre of the village is easily reachable by a 10 minutes walk along an old road that during the Middle Ages was famous because it was used by the Pilgrims that came from Roma. Along every step of this road one can enjoy the beauty of S. Gimignano with its magnificent towers. Each apartment is provided with a wall-safe, central heating and satellite -TV. At the guests' disposal there is also private parking.
A shared swimming pool (11 x 4 meters; depth: 1.20/1.90) will be available from May 2017
My name is Roberto, I am 52, I'm happily married and have a beautiful daughter 20 years. I was born in San Gimignano and when I got married I went to live in the countryside, the house left by my grandparents, in a great location about 800 meters from the city. With so many sacrifices, together with my wife and my brother, we have restored an old barn, where we made three nice apartments now rent for our guests.
The farmhouse and barn were built in 1926 by the grandparents. In 1987 we renovated the farmhouse, where they now live with my family and in 2007 we renovated the old barn. Is located in a very quiet location, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves 800 meters from the medieval city.
When staying at our house you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside and you will enjoy an enchanting view of the towers of San Gimignano. Also you have the possibility to reach the city on foot, along a quiet scenic road and told by our guests, many of whom return to us for several years, the value for money is very good.
We had a really lovely week staying here. The location is perfect for the town of San Gimignano and for driving around and through the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Our accommodation was perfect. The cooking facilities were excellent with a good range of utensils should you wish to self cater. Our bed was very comfortable and the bathroom and shower more than adequate.
Nadine and Roberto greeted us on arrival and were very warm and friendly. They also came to see us before we left which was also a very nice gesture. Perfect accommodation, perfect hosts. I would certainly recommend Podere degli Olivi as the best place to stay in this beautiful pasrt of the world.
What a lovely house and lovely people.
Everything you want.good location.Fantastic views,ideal place for touring Tuscany.
We will be back.
We were very lucky to have chosen this location to spend three weeks exploring Tuscany as part of a year long tour of Europe.
The location is first class, sandwiched between Florence and Siena, both easily reached by car, train or coach for days when you want explore, or within a 10- 15 minute walk you are in the stunning medieval town of San Gimignano which bustles with lively bars, shops and restaurants. So, if you would like a day of rest at home sunbathing in the beautiful gardens and a stroll out to a restaurant in the evening without having to take a car - this is most definitely the place for you. The location is tranquil, without being isolated and the accommodation, whilst quite compact, is beautifully furnished in the traditional style of the area. The surrounding landscape is a stunning patchwork-quilt of olive trees and vines with the towers of San Gimignano only a stones throw away.
Finally, we have to say a word about our hosts, Nadia, Roberto and Silvia, their daughter, were an absolute delight. Helpful, friendly, warm and welcoming both to us and our two dogs who are along for the ride. Thank you for all your kindness and laughter, you were wonderful!
Vraiment une superbe région. La location est situé dans le plus beau village de toscane et les propriétaires sont discrets et sympathiques. Nous avons passé une excellente semaine . Je la recommande vivement.
Nous avons apprécié cette location très bien située, joliment décorée et typique des maisons toscanes. Beaucoup de belles promenades dans la campagne environnante. Les propriétaires sont vraiment charmants.
