Villa with private pool walking distance from San Gimignano

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Villa in San Gimignano, Siena Province, Tuscany and Florence, Italy

The private garden which surrounds the villa is immaculately maintained with lawns, mature trees, and flowering plants and enjoys a fine panorama. Perfect for dining alfresco or just enjoying a chilled glass of 'Vernaccia di San Gimignano' whilst enjoying the essence of the Tuscany. The perfectly placed swimming pool (12m x 6m) overlooks the olive groves, and is framed by a paved terrace and lawns. It is a lovely spot for relaxing and enjoying a swim after a busy day’s sightseeing. Guests are free to wander the 10 acre estate which is perfect for country walks and the town San Gimignano with its selection of shops and restaurants is easily reachable on foot. The panoramic area where there is the swimming pool extends almost until the alternative road of the town.

The two levels are connected via the garden making the villa perfect for larger parties whilst retaining privacy. There is a communal laundry room, barbecue, and WiFi internet connection is also available at a small local charge. The friendly owners have a small detached cottage on the estate which they occasionally use. Parking is in the grounds below the house.

Ideal villa in San Gimignano

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal villa for 7 of us on our two week stay in San Gimignano. The villa is very well equipped and located in beautiful grounds with wonderful views. The house is divided into two self-contained units which can sleep four each. It was an easy walk uphill to San Gimignano. The owners live on the property and were very friendly and accessible, providing lots of local knowledge, maps and guides.

Wonderful Villa - Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

An extremely well maintained villa (originally a Tuscan farm house - now separated into two: 2 bedroomed units each with own kitchen/dining and living areas) set in large private grounds, comprising olive groves and manicured lawns with a swimming pool and views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Extremely clean and fully equiped. San Gimignano was very conveniently located - a short walk away. The owners were truly delightful, genuine, friendly hosts and always available with local recommendations and advice. Would highly recommend this villa.

A Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic for two families holiday .

The toddlers could tumble out onto the lawns, the adults could enjoy the wonderful views of olive groves and vineyards, and everyone could easily walk to the vsupermarket, restaurants etc. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The house and kitchens are well equipped; the four bathrooms are in excellent condition and all the rooms are spacious and comfortable. We highly recommend Podere La Tesa. Five stars.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at Villa il Podere. The villa is very comfortable, each bedroom with its own bathroom and two fully equipped kitchens. The outdoor area is stunning with the olive and cypres trees, the view over the Tuscan countryside and the pool area. The house is located at easy walking distance of San Gimignano, shops, restaurants and supermarket.

The hosts of Il Podere are friendly, helpful and speak English very well.
