A comfortable villa located between Colle val D’Elsa and Volterra, Le Ginepraie provides you with a beautiful peaceful location but easy access to the historical towns. The villa, with its wonderful views is ideal for a family holiday in the heart of Tuscany.

Le Ginepraie is a 17th century villa painstakingly restored to its past glorious state with high vaulted ceilings, of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. In the garden there is a large pool surrounded by sun beds and umbrellas. From the pool area there are excellent views of the rolling hills surrounding the villa.

Le Ginepraie is built on two floors and it is composed of 3 intercommunicating houses and a small studio, making it perfect for family groups by allowing the various family groups to have their own area of the villa. On the ground floor as you enter the courtyard you find to your left the studio that is composed of a bathroom with shower and a sleeping area that has a comfortable double bed.


At the end of the hall there is the entrance to a living area of the villa, in this light and spacious area there is a dining table, a kitchenette and a lounge. From one side of the lounge you have access to the gardens. Off the living area there are two bedrooms with double beds, each bedroom has it’s own en-suite bathroom with shower.

Off the entrance hall there is a typical Tuscan staircase that takes you to the first floor. On the left of the small landing at the top of the stairs there is a lounge area that has a double sofa bed. At the end of the room there is a kitchen with dining room. After crossing the kitchen area you enter a small hall off which there is the spacious bedroom that has a double bed, and a bathroom with shower.

To the right of the main stairs there is the last part of the house that consists of a large spacious lounge area with double sofa bed that leads into a kitchen with dining room. At this table 12 people can be seated, by joining on another table you will be able to seat 16 people. Off the kitchen there is a small corridor that leads to the bathroom with shower and a double bedroom.



All the kitchens include a fridge/freezer, gas cooker and dishwasher. Each of the living areas of the house have Sat TV, fireplace and CD player.

The owners live on the property, at the far end of the pool, about 50meters away. They will not disturb you in anyway and will not be using the pool, which is private to Ginepraia.

Pros Le paysage est magnifique. Des quatre côtés de la maison la vue est imprenable.
Les chambres sont très belles et certaines spacieuses.
L'accueil des propriétaires est extrêmement chaleureux et tout en restant discret , ils font tout pour que notre séjour se passe au mieux. S'il manque quelque chose à la villa, ils se démènent dans l'heure pour que cela apparaisse.
Local attractions L'endroit est tellement beau et la cuisine des propriétaires est délicieuse. Donc nous sommes peu sortis. Un soir à la pizzeria restau le cipresse, c'était très bon
