About the property

Renovated old farmhouse large swimming pool charming in the heart of Tuscany

This renovated farmhouse is ideal for summer or all year round holiday rental. Situated on the vineyard hill-top in the heart of Tuscany, the villa enjoys fantastic views over the peaceful landscape and San Gimignano afar. 3 spacious bedrooms (one double and two twin) can accommodate 6 people with comfort. Gas oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, full crockery and cutlery turn self-catering into a joy. Washing machine also provided. The houses and grounds are beautifully maintained by the housekeeper and gardener and surrounded by lots of flowers and rosemary hedges. The on-site 20x10 meter swimming pool is one of the biggest in the area with spectacular views across the hills to Siena, and a shallow kids pool is welcomed by those with small children. Solar-heated pool, fireplace and centrally heated rooms can extend your holiday season. Tennis court. You can read a book in the poolside shades or prepare BBQ while looking over the valley or go to a nearby village restaurant or visit a château for Chianti wine tasting. 15 min drive to Siena, 20 min to San Gimignano and 45 min to Firenze. Ideal place for active family vacation or romantic holiday. Your children will love it

The 300 year old Le Bagnaie Estate covers 5 acres, and consists of eight privately owned houses set in exceptionally well maintained gardens, sharing a 20m pool, a children’s pool and an all-weather tennis court. Our home occupies the whole upper floor and turret of the old farmhouse. There are outstanding 360º views from the hilltop of Le Bagnaie over the surrounding countryside, ranging from woodlands to olive groves and Chianti Classico vineyards and the distant towers of both Siena and San Gimignano. The estate is peaceful, private and within easy reach of the most important sites of Tuscany.

Fantastic views from a lovely property. We had a great stay at Le Bagnaie .

  • 5 of 5

The property itself was excellent and a pleasure to stay in. The views of the surrounding countryside were stunning, we ate outside a few evenings when we didn't visit restaurants, and watched the sunset.

The swimming pool was massive and the water temperature just right.

A very relaxing holiday.

Property was beautifully maintained with great authenticiry for age & attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

The Tuscan countryside was exquisitely picturesque. The guestbook in the house was a testament to its allure, with many vacationers returning multiple times over decades. Unless you have a driver at your disposal, you will need to rent a car for the shortest of errands!

Gorgeous view...

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 6 days at this property ....I miss it everyday since we came back to USA...the views...the warmth of the Tuscany sun on every room of the house...the staff FANTASTIC! the garden... go pic up some tomates can eat them like french sweet...go for morning walks it's the best...

So peaceful it's really a place for you to relax with your family...THE POOL IS AMAZING!

Big plus the property is so close to Siena (great town) Montpulciano, to many other beautiful towns around for you to spend the day.

If you never drove in Europe ...get ready to speed up ...they drive fast..small roads...but the scenic roads and sunset are to die for.

Ask the manager of the property Jacky (amazing Jacky she knows all about the region great help to us) to set up a day with Serena to come to the house and cook for you ...we did dinner to enjoy the beautiful full moon that day!...sitting outside...good wine ...good food..and the peaceful views!

I highly recomend this property to anyone that is looking for a good time in the beautiful Tuscany region.

We will be back!

Lovely, wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely! The fireplace in the evening was a great place to wind down and enjoy a glass of wine. Well located to visit Tuscany. Fabulous food. Very attentive management but not at all over bearing or intrusive.

I would absolutely recommend this to my friends.
