Large arched glass doors lead from the furnished terracotta terrace into the spacious lounge. From the windows there are views of the surrounding gardens and fields.


The lounge is graced by a long table which is very typical of the houses of Tuscan peasants that had abundant families. This lovely wooden table seats 10, making this villa ideal if you have friends staying in the same location.


On the right of the lounge there is a traditional fireplace. The floor is covered with glazed terracotta tiles and the ceiling is made of terracotta tiles and wooden beams. To the left of the lounge there is the fully fitted kitchen.

On the right of the lounge down 2 steps there is a corridor which leads to the bathroom with shower and bedrooms. The double bedroom has large windows protecting the room from the sun with typical thin terracotta bricks. This rustic finishing on the window makes the room shady while still allowing you to enjoy the magnificent views.



To the left of the corridor there is a bedroom with twin beds. This room has glazed terracotta tiles on the floor and wooden beams on the ceiling.





Bracciante is a very spacious villa and has excellent views.

Vecchio Fienile
The Vecchio Fienile is a collection of 5 houses that is located on the gentle slopes of the Chianti hills near the typical Tuscan hamlet of S. Appiano, which lies between Siena and Florence. This tranquil location has superb views of the surrounding countryside and is just 4km from the highway.

There is a large pool that lies in the gardens behind the building where in its raised position the pool enjoys the warmth of the sun the whole day. In its location slightly higher than the houses of the hamlet, the pool has complete privacy from windows of the houses although it is only 20 meters away. At one end of the pool there is a hydro massage.

In this characteristic hamlet there is ample covered parking and large communal gardens, although each house has its own private garden. The hamlet is ideally located with good access to many restaurants and shops in the area and to the main routes to historic towns.
There are open views around the Vecchio Fienile in this quiet and peaceful position.

Pros Grundstück und Pool sind sehr gepflegt. Die Verkehrsverbindungen ist optimal.
Cons Die Küche nebst Küchenausstattung müssten dringend überprüft und teilweise erneuert werden. Besteck und Gläser sind nicht in ausreichender Anzahl vorhanden. In der Mikrowelle konnten wir sehen, was die Vornutzer verzehrt haben.
Local attractions In der Osteria in San Appiano isst man sehr gut.

Pros Die ruhige, aber gleichzeitig zentral Lage oben auf dem Berg oberhalb von Poggibonsi (4km) Die Ausflugsorte Florenz, Volterra, Arezzo, Lago Trasimeno sind alle in gut 1 Std Fahrzeit erreichbar. Gute Einkaufmöglichkeiten in der Nähe beim Centro Commercial in Poggibonsi-Süd.
Cons Die WLAN-Versorgung innerhalb des Gebäudes sollte nachgebessert werden. Im Gebäude gelingt zwar der LOGIN ins WLAN, es ist aber zu schwach, um im Internet surfen zu können. Der versprochene Highspeed WLAN-Empfang wird nur in unmittelbarer Nähe der Reception erreicht.
Local attractions Die kleinen Orte im Weingebiet Chianti, Monteriggioni, Montepulciano, Cotorna und der Lago Trasimeno sind eine Reise wert. Es müssen nicht immer die üblichen Top-Ausflugsziele sein.

Pros Der Inhaber ist sehr nett und kümmerte sich täglich um die Anlage. Er stand stets für Fragen zur Verfügung. Das Wohnzimmer ist großzügig, so dass man sich auch bei schlechtem Wetter die Zeit in der Wohnung vertreiben kann.
Cons Das Geschirr und Besteck könnte mal ausgetauscht werden.
Local attractions Im Nachbarort oberhalb der Anlage ca. einen Kilometer entfernt gibt es eine tolle Osteria mit traumhaftem Blick in die Landschaft. Dies war auch ein Tip vom Inhaber. Zum Eisessen muss man nicht immer nach San Gimignano fahren. In Poggibonsi in der Via Montegrappa 1 gibt es an der Ecke eine hervorragende Eisdiele.

Pros Le lieu est magnifique et très bien entretenu. L'appartement spacieux, lumineux et la literie de bonne qualité. Idéalement situé pour les visites et découverte de la région. Le propriétaire très sympathique.
Nous recommandons sans hésitation ce lieu.
Cons Rien si ce n'est peut-être les soucis de connexion wifi (avec un garçon de 14 ans qui appréciait retrouver son ordinateur le soir!!! pas d'internet, c'était pas toujours bien accepté....)
Local attractions Avec des enfants, le zoo qui se trouve à Pistoia (environ 1h00 de route). Très bien aménagé et respect des animaux. San Gimignano (resto: Trattoria Chiribiri 1ére à gauche en entrant dans la vieille ville) Sienne (resto: Ostéria Il Ghibellino via dei Pellegrini, 26) Florence (ne pas manquer Santa Croce, Santa Maria Novella et Ste Catherine Sur la route du retour, Lucca à ne manquer sous aucun pretexte!

Pros We loved the friendliness of Maurizio when we checked in. HE WAS WONDERFUL!!! There was a small Christmas tree and some Christmas lights strung about. There was also a bottle of champagne and a cake awaiting our arrival. These things made it so SPECIAL for the holidays. The villa was beautiful. It was perfect for our needs. We were close enough to take day trips to Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Siena, and of course enjoy the chianti region!!!

Pros It is set in beautiful countryside. Short drive away from amenities. It was peaceful and secluded and had an amazing pool. The villa was well stocked for self catering. The accommodation was spacious and the living area accommodated our friends for dinner who were staying on the same complex. We liked it as we always holiday with other families, we were able to have our own space but were able to enjoy each others company by the pool and at meal times. Florence, Siena and San Gimignano were a short drive away. You do need a car when at this villa. There is one restaurant 10 minutes walk away.
Cons At one point during the holiday while we were relaxing by the pool, some local people came and sunbathed, without explanation. We were led to believe that the rental was totally ours for the week. We approached the owner and he explained that it was his family and it would not happen again.
Local attractions There is a beautiful restaurant 10 minute walk. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Especially as there were 12 of us. The food was superb and produced locally. They had a mix of traditional, pizza and pasta. We sat outside and watched the beautiful sunset. Our other favourite visits were Siena and San Gimignano, which we visited late afternoon and we had an evening meal there.
