Le Ginepraie, Pignano - Volterra - Pisa

5 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 10 to 12 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

This beautifully restored and immaculately kept 17th-century villa consistently scores top marks from its guests. Divided into three apartments clustered around an arched courtyard, Le Ginepraie’s generous and flexible accommodation suits groups of family or friends equally well. The lawned garden, with its large private pool and views of open countryside, is a great place to relax together, while tables, indoors and out, can seat a full house for shared meals. Prepare these yourselves or really take it easy: your hosts will cook as much or as little as you wish – from breakfast and brunch to a five-course dinner – providing what is, in effect, your own private restaurant in an annexe to the side of the villa. You can even take cooking masterclasses with them.

It’s very easy to have late starts at Le Ginepraie – it’s a lovely place to hang out – but you are also close enough to Volterra and San Gimignano, two of Tuscany’s most charming walled towns, to pop into them for a morning coffee. The grandeurs of Siena, Pisa and Florence, meanwhile, are also easily reached. What’s more, the side of the house is home to a superb pergola with a variety of soft furniture, and a dining table with 12 chairs. The ideal place to relax in the shade after a day of sightseeing.

Our Thoughts
Le Ginepraie has a real air of ease and calm about it, which is due in large measure to its open position in beautiful countryside, but also to its stylishly simple renovation. The pastel interiors – furnishings and rendered walls – show off the villa’s traditional terracotta floors and ceilings beautifully. With five double bedrooms and five bathrooms, Le Ginepraie easily accommodates 10. No one will feel on top of one another: there’s always a pleasant space to escape to when you want some me-time. The villa’s generous pool will be loved.

Notes
Five bedrooms. Five bathrooms, two en-suite. The wi-fi works in the garden and part of the house. The owners live in a villa beyond the pool; they will not disturb you, however, and the pool is yours alone. If you would like a meal the evening you arrive or the following morning, please advise the owners in advance. Cookery classes start at 4pm and last approximately three hours; dishes vary, depending on your preferences. Information and prices for meals and classes available on arrival. The sofa-beds, if used, are for children only.
Parking - spaces on site.

Pool
Just a few metres fromthe house, the inviting pool area is surrounded by sun beds and umbrellas, providing you with the perfect place to sit and relax whilst enjoying the warm Tuscan sun. Ladder steps at one end provide access to the water. A safety fence surrounds the pool.
Pool size: 6m x 12m, 1.2m-2.4m deep. Open from April through October, weather permitting.

Die abweichenden Bewertungen zum sehr gut kamen nur zustande, das wir in Deutschland wohl eher eine richtige Bettdecke zur Nachtruhe bevorzugen. Tip wäre hier wirklich eine pro Person mitzunehemen wenn man daran gewöhnt ist. Ansonsten ist es eben gewöhnungsbedürftig. Zur Sauberkeit kann man im wesentlichen nichts nachteiliges sagen. Einzig und allein die Masse an schwarzen Käfern(keine Kakerlaken!!!) in den Räumen zur Nacht hin, war etwas nervig. Nun weiß ich allerdings nicht in wie weit man hier durch die ebenerdige Lage den Vermieter in die Pflicht nehmen kann. Die Vermieterfamilie ist sehr nett und aufmerksam. Sie wohnen zwar mit in unmittelbarer Nähe, doch überhaupt nicht spürbar. Wir hatten alle Freiheiten ohne Einschränkungen. Ich würde sogar sagen das diese Kombination ein Vorteil ist.
Local attractions Essen ist überall gut.Wir waren in Florenz,Pisa und einigen anderen in der Umgebung liegenden Städten. Das war alles gut zu erreichen und einen Besuch wert. Rom haben wir ebenfalls mitgenommen, wobei man hier die 3 Stunden Fahrt in Kauf nehmen muss. Durch die gute Strassenverbindung allerdings völlig in Ordnung.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:25.09.2017
Thank you for your great review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The owner confirms that sometimes beetles and insects can get into the house from the garden - this is nothing to be concerned about - simply the Tuscan countryside :)
