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.

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.

Fantastic property- the photos don't do it justice. Very spacious and well equipped. The Loggia was just perfect for evening meals and the view beautiful.

The whole complex is extremely well kept with a lovely pool and well maintained tennis court.

Tuscan idyll

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely wonderful, steeped in peace and beauty: a mix of 360 degree views; rustic 15th century farm atmosphere; fresh tomatoes, green peppers, courgettes and herbs picked daily from the garden; swimming in a huge pool whilst looking at towns 50 kilometres away; Siena 15 minutes away; our favourite restaurants within a 30-minute drive. Each night that we drove to dinner, we ran across wild boar or deer and there were frequent pheasant flutterings in the morning. Our friends who were staying in a fancy hotel nearby felt quite cheated by comparison, we were a tad smug. We are thinking when to come back in the spring. I can only fault the driving directions, please upgrade to GPS co-ordinates!

We stayed in Quattro Staggioni for six weeks in the fall of 2012, but have visited Le Bagnaie several times both before and after that (and stayed in other properties on the estate).

Why do we keep coming back? This place is our all time vacation favorite, with the beautiful views, garden and pool area, and in a location which is a great starting point for day trips all over Tuscany.

The apartment itself is nice, with a kitchen equipped for cooking your own meals, spacious bedrooms and living room, and a wonderful private garden with a grill. But best of all: the loggia, where you can enjoy the Tuscan sunset and a glass of wine before dinner (would have appreciated some more comfortable chairs here, though).

If anything should break, you need directions, advice on where to eat or help finding the nearest hospital, manager Jacky or the always helpful cleaning and gardening staff is never far away.

Highly recommended!
