The entire property is on sloped land, away from the village. The main building is at the top of the property with the two barns, Casa Guia and Casa Isabella below it. Next to the barns is the beautiful pool basking in the sun with fantastic views.


Below the pool is an olive grove belonging to the property. San Vincenti is surrounded by forests and provides a fantastic location to be able to see the Tuscan wildlife wonder by occassionally.

In the village there is a medieval church and other privately owned houses. The hamlet itself consists of 15 villas, it is located just before entering the village and has been restored to a high standard.

Pros Très belle restauration dans un cadre agréable , calme .piscine idéale bien intégrée et malgré les remarques je vais faire nous avons passé un excellent séjour
Cons Réfrigérateur ridiculement trop petit pour location 6 personnes et dont le ravitaillement se situe entre 12 et 25 km sur des routes TOSCANNES : c'est un problème pour stocker fruits/légumes et mettre de l'eau au frais. Location poussiéreuse sous les lits et armoires ( aucun matériel de nettoyage) Odeur dans les 2 armoires de chambres ne permettant pas de mettre les vêtements , Vaisselle limite, aucun fauteuil ou transat pour se relaxer sur la terrasse ou l'espace jardin; juste 4 chaises ext en métal
Local attractions Nous nous basons toujours sur le ROUTARD pour manger au travers de nos différentes visites ( rada, Sienne, castellina, colle di val d'elsa , Florence ... Dégustation dans les vignobles de la famille Léo Ferret ...

Pros Schöner Pool Schöne Landschaft. Betreuung durch die Örtliche Verwalterin war sehr gut.
Cons Für sechs Personen waren die Räumlichkeiten etwas beengt. Ausstattung der Küche sehr übersichtlich. Möblierung der Schlafzimmer sehr spartanisch. Weite Anfahrten zu Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.

Pros Being in such a remote location was good for really getting away from it all. The view was great and the pool was good too. The Villa was comfortable for us ( two couples). For the price we paid I think it was a reasonable stay.
Cons The villa could have been cleaner. There were still spider webs around the interior when we arrived. We had ants trying to take over the place and even encountered 2 scorpions inside during our stay, which we dealt to. This place is in the countryside and surrounded by nature so I would suggest putting in place more screens to keep all of the insects etc out of the house, especially considering there is no A/C so in the peak of summer all of the windows need to be open to maintain a breeze throughout the villa. The pool was cleaned about one week after we arrived. Before the pool cleaners arrived I cleaned out the pool filters (which were clogged with wasps) and used the cleaning equipment lying around the pool to clean the bottom of the pool. These are not major complaints and we all enjoyed our time in Tuscany and I am aware that the owner has stopped building on the site so it might not be completed and could also be up for sale but they could still put a little more into the maintenance side of things especially when it will be occupied with paying guest.

Pros La vue magnifique, le calme, les animaux......
Cons La piscine n'a pas été entretenue de la semaine et les parasols et les transats étaient tous cassés !!! Le frigidaire beaucoup trop petit pour une famille de 5 personnes (compte tenu de l'éloignement des magasins, il y a besoin de faire du stock et aussi quand il fait très chaud on apprécie d'avoir des boissons au frais). Pas de parasol sur la terrasse de la maison donc pas de possibilité de s'y mettre avant qu'elle soit à l'ombre (Dommage !!!). Aussi difficulté pour être en relation avec une personne lorsqu'on rencontre un problème (notamment machine lave linge en panne et aucune info !)
Local attractions Le village de San GUSME, village pittoresque avec des restaurants, distributeur banque, épicerie.... Autrement, Sienne, CHIANTI RABHA,....

Pros La tranquilité des lieux et la piscine accessible. L'impression d'être dans un lieu rustique avec les commodités de la vie moderne. Le silence et les étoiles chaque soir. La qualité de la literie. L'eau chaude en quantité. La proximité de Sienne, ville magnifique.
Cons Le fait qu'il n'y avait pas de moustiquaires aux fenêtres de chambres, ce qui nous empêchait d'ouvrir pour avoir un peu d'air le soir. Un peu loin des services.
Local attractions Un resto à Badia a Coltibuono dans l'abbaye. Le château de Brolio avec vignoble et achat de bons vins. Un charmant resto à San Gusme, dans le petit village. Les visites de Sienne, Florence et San Gimignano. Le beau village de Gaiole, Castelnuovo di Berargenda.
