Tignano offers peace and tranquillity for a relaxing holiday in typical Tuscan villas. Care has been taken to preserve the original state of this pretty stone property.


Outside the villas there is a large well-maintained sun drenched lawn circled by trees and shrubs providing privacy. Down steps from the lawn there is the swimming pool with its superb views.



Near the property there is the castle of Tignano and a tiny typical Tuscan hamlet from which the property obtains it’s name. All around Tignano there are fields, vineyards and olive groves.
The owner's son with his young family live at the property.

Tignano is a large villa entered from up a few steps from the stone terrace to the front. To one side of the terrace there is a covered loggia with table and chairs for dining al fresco.

On entering you find yourself in a large dining room with open fireplace and a wooden table comfortably seating 10 people. To the left is a pretty, tastefully furnished lounge that has Sat TV. There are terracotta floors and typical ceiling with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
From the dining room, to the right, there is access to the fully equipped kitchen that includes, gas hobs, fridge/freezer and oven. This room also has a fireplace. To one side is the dining area with a table that can seat the whole group of 10 people. The kitchen leads into a simple sitting room that has terracotta floors and ceilings with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.


Upstairs from the lounge are the two double bedrooms both rooms have an en-suite bathroom with shower. These rooms also have terracotta floors and ceiling with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
From the little sitting room on the other side of the house stairs take you to the first floor where there are two bedrooms, both with double beds. There is one bathroom with a shower. Spiral stairs lead to a third bedroom with twin beds. This is a simple room with space only for the beds. It would therefore be better suited for children rather than adults. There is also a bathroom with shower on the ground floor of the villa.
The third bedroom is up the spiral stairs and not indicated on the floor plans.
While staying at Tignano the owners can organise massages (ayurveda,shiatzu, reiki) for you to enjoy at the villa.
On request they can also book you for dinner in a nearby restaurant for the day of your arrival.
There is a small apartment also on the property with a permanent resident who will not have access to the pool or gardens.
This villa availability must be confirmed when booking.

Pros Such a lovely, traditional Tuscan villa but with all mod cons. As a family group of very mixed ages, there was something for everyone. The pool was wonderful and gave us all hours of fun. Eating al-fresco most days was so easy and there were great places to eat nearby, particularly in Barberino. The location is excellent, very close to Sienna, Florence, Volterra and San Gimignano but also great drives locally in Chianti country. The villa owners were delightful, giving us fresh eggs from the hens and the best Panna Cotta ever!! We had a great holiday.
Local attractions Ristorante L'Archibugio, Barberino - great food, wonderful view. The spaghetti ragu was voted the best on the trip by our child experts! Osteria Il Campanellino, Barberino.

Pros Een fantastische villa voor 2 gezinnen met (jonge) kinderen, wij hebben genoten van de ruimtes, het zwembad, de BBQ, het terras en de tuin in combinatie met het heerlijke Italiaanse eten en de zon. Het huis ligt bovendien fantastisch met weids uitzicht over de vallei met wijnvelden.
Local attractions Dit huis ligt zeer centraal tussen Siena, Florence en allerhande kleine authentieke Italiaanse dorpjes waardoor je mooie uitstapjes kunt maken (ook met kinderen).

Pros De plek en het huis zijn schitterend!
Je moet wel echt een auto hebben, dan kun je heerlijk allerlei stadjes bezoeken en dan lekker terug naar 'huis' rijden.
Cons Niets.
Local attractions Toch wel de steden; Lucca, Siena, Florence. Maar met een autootje lekker rondrijden rondom Tignano is natuurlijk ook prachtig.

Pros The upper and lower yards were absolutely beautiful, just what you see in magazines. The house itself was charming very authentic to the region, with all the modern conviences. The family that managed it was alos wonderful, friendly, and always available for questions.
Cons The two living room sare a little small, but that was a minor criticism and did not effect the enjoymnent of the house. I would stay there again. Note: it might have been nice to have had an area rug in one of the living rooms.
Local attractions Easy bus from Tavernelle to Florence, it was nice to not have to deal with parking. Pizza to go in Tavernelle.

Nearest town

Barberino Val d’Elsa, 2km away, is the nearest village, it is a small hamlet but there are shops there. There is another village, Tavernelle, which is 3km away where there are some restaurants and a supermarket. In the town Poggibonsi, 10km away, there is a large supermarket and wide selection of shops. An excellent restaurant that we recommend you try is La Fattoria, which is located just before Tavernelle
