Your guide to San Gimignano, Tuscany

We stayed in this Villa in October 2006. The Villa itself was superb, with breathtaking views, friendly atmosphere and brilliant location for visiting Pisa, Sienna, Voltera and Florence. Voltera and Florence were the most stunning places to visit... more on this review
Giving it an overall rating out of 5:
Countryside calm reigns supreme at this pretty clutch of holiday homes just outside the walls San Gimignano.
It’s the view that captivates visitors when they first pull up at Poggioluglio. A jigsaw of rolling hills and tall cypress trees, it’s Italy at its scenic best. And in among the greenery stand the 13th-century towers of San Gimignano. Because that’s the other big pull of this particular property – it’s just outside the stone walls encasing one of Tuscany’s finest Medieval hill towns. You can be wandering the narrow streets within a matter of minutes.
There are three parts to Poggioluglio – a one-bedroom apartment, a cottage and a studio. The apartment is spacious and sleeps two or three. The interiors are a clever fusion of rustic and modern, with beautiful wood-beamed ceilings and, in the lounge, a fabulous panoramic window. The cottage also takes two or three people, with a double bedroom and a sofabed in the basement lounge, which you access via a small spiral staircase. Finally, the studio is a smaller, simpler base designed for two, with a bed in the living area.
All three options have terraces and barbecues. In terms of shared facilities, there’s a pool, which showcases the views to full effect, as well as a tennis court. It’s likely you’ll see the owners making the most of them, too. Together with their cats and dogs, they live in a separate house within the grounds.
