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 Het huis is ruim, met genoeg ruimte voor privacy van ieder. Compleet ingericht, ruim voldoende van alles en alles werkte. De tuin is echt prachtig en erg groot. De buitenzitjes zijn mooi. We hebben genoten van het ontbijt op het terras. Het zwembad en de omgeving zijn goed onderhouden. Door het mooie weer konden we er heerlijk van genieten. De ontvangst was hartelijk en de service prima. We werden zelfs getrakteerd op een door familie van de eigenaar zelfgemaakte pannacotta, heerlijk.
De ligging van het huis is mooi, we konden volop genieten van het uitzicht.
De ligging tussen de steden Florence en Siena is perfect. Het aanrijden vanuit Pisa is goed te doen.
We hebben genoten van een perfecte week in Toscane met onze volwassen kinderen en hun aanhang.
Local attractions In Tignano zelf vonden we het kasteelplein erg mooi. San Gimignano is prachtig. Een ritje naar Greve is ook de moeite waard. De wijnproeverij in Gaiole (Casa d'Ami) was erg goed verzorgd en werd heel enthousiast gepresenteerd. Zeker aan te raden. Siena heeft ons erg geboeid. In Florence was het te druk, maar het is een mooie stad met zeker interessante musea voor als je er langer dan een dag bent.

Pros Villa disposant d'un grand parc, située à mi-chemin entre Florence et Sienne, en pleine campagne: après les différentes visites effectuées, nous avons apprécié le calme, la quiétude, la sérénité de l'endroit. Le 1er niveau de la villa, réservé à la vie diurne, bien équipé(cuisine, salle à manger, 2 salons,TV); le 1er étage avec 4 grandes chambres (idéal pour 4 couples), ayant chacune une salle de bain avec douche et WC. Disposition qui nous convenait parfaitement. Par beau temps, nous avons pu manger à l'extérieur, sur la terrasse.
La gentillesse, l'amabilité, la disponibilité des propriétaires (habitant à 5-6 km de la villa).
Cons Pour les "jeunes", la connexion WiFi n'était pas satisfaisante. Pour les plus anciens, c'était secondaire. La piscine, très bien située, aurait bien plu aux jeunes (avons eu une semaine bien ensoleillée), mais elle n'est fonctionnelle qu'après le 1er mai.
Local attractions Florence, San Gimignano et surtout Sienne qui nous a ravis. Cave à vin à Bargino: Cave Antinori. Restaurant: "La Fattoria"Via del Cerro,11 50028 Tavarnelle Val di Pesa Tel:055 8070158 055 8070000

Pros We loved the location, the surrounding amenities (not far from groceries, in between Sienna and Florence) and the beautiful scenery. Everything we expected of Tuscany.
Local attractions We went to Palazzo Pretorio in San Donato twice because we loved the pizza! We also visited three nearby wineries and Greve - enjoyable day.

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.

Cons Niets.

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
