Pietre Focaie is a fantastic, luxury Tuscan villa only 4km from San Gimignano. It is on a large, private estate surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. It is composed of the villa plus the owner's residence.
On the estate and private to the villa is a huge, salt cleansed pool in the full sun and with incredible views of the valley and of San Gimignano. Next to it is a full size tennis court.
Next to the villa is a large covered terrace, next to which there is a stone barbeque. It's furnished with a ping pong, billiards and some chairs to relax, and a hammock. Outside the front of villa, in the garden, there is a large table with chairs to dine al fresco.
Going inside the villa there is a big, open plan room with a fireplace in a corner and a wonderful ceiling of terracotta tiles, typical of Tuscan villas. The bright room has a built in kitchen to one side. It has plenty of counter and storage space. It is well equipped with five gas hobs, an oven and a large fridge with separate freezer, a microwave and dishwasher. There are two ceiling fans in the kitchen area.
Along the opposite wall are two wooden sideboards, well stocked with all dining items. In the centre is a huge ceramic and iron table which comfortably seats 10 people. While to the other side of the room, infront of the fireplace is a second dining table with 10 comfortable chairs. There is also a double, leather sofa facing a television.
A couple of steps lead into a hall which provides access to the first floor and to the ground floor bedroom. The bedroom is a spacious room, decorated in pastel yellow, with a pretty four poster, double bed, wardrobe and a couple of armchairs. The en-suite bathroom has a shower.
On the first floor there is a comfortable sitting area with a sofa and armchair, and three steps down you will find a lounge with a large, angle sofa facing the open fireplace. The high ceiling is the original Tuscan villa ceiling of terracotta tiles and wooden beams. A glass door provides light and access to the upper gardens.
Immediately off the lounge area is a pretty blue and yellow bedroom, with a warm wooden floor. It has a double bed, a double door wardrobe and two armchairs. En-suite is a bathroom with a large shower.
The final 3 bedrooms are accessed from a small hall. The first is a bright, yellow room with twin four poster beds which cannot be made into a double bed. In the room is a double door wardrobe and a writing desk. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
Next to this is a  double bedroom with a headboard. It has a wardrobe, and two chairs at the foot of the bed and plenty of light from the  two windows. The ceiling is covered with wooden beams providing the room with extra character. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
The final bedroom is a double room with a wonderful, curtained, four poster bed. It also has a wooden ceiling and plenty of light. There is a double wardrobe and writing desk in the room. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.

The owners live in a cottage on the site, however their house cannot be seen from the villa, although their house has to be passed to reach the pool area. They have 4 small dogs, which are normally kept away from the area of Pietre Focaie while guests are in the villa. The owners run the restaurant La Mangatoia in San Gimignano and are rarely at the property during the day.

Pool Info

The large, private pool is located about 60 metres from the villa. It is not visible from the villa and is reached by a pretty stone path. From the pool there are incredible views of the valley and onto San Gimignano, perched on the hill across the valley.
All around the pool is a wonderful stone deck, in full sun, dotted with several sunbeds. There are also a couple of pergolas looking out to the views, and furnished with some comfortable furniture, ideal to relax in the shade.
The pool is 18x9 metres and 1-2 metres deep, with a diving board on one side. It's open from 15 May to 30 September, weather permitting. It's a salt cleansed pool.
Next to the pool is a full size, private tennis court. It has been recently resurfaced. Balls and racquets are available for guests to use. From the court there are fantastic views over the vineyards which are next to it. The owners do not use it.

Wir waren mit Freunden und Kindern im Pietre Focaie. Dies Besitzer sind unglaublich liebevoll, der Blick und die Umgebung ein Traum, das Anwesen wunderschön! Wir hatte uns bekochen lassen (Besitzer haben ein Restaurant in San Gimignano) und genossen herrliches Toskanisches Essen + Wein. Jederzeit wieder!

Pietre Focaie is a beautifully appointed villa with gorgeous views of San Gimignano. The bedrooms all had their own on suites and the kitchen was well stocked and has a large kitchen table as well as another more formal dining area. The pool was amazing with a variety of lounging and sitting areas - even had a bar fridge! Having the owners living next door has it's advantages too - they were on site to answer questions or provide assistance whenever needed. Lots of space for a family or large group of friends to enjoy time together.
The villa is not an easy walk into San Gimignano. If going to restaurants in the evening you need a taxi, and we found taxis to be a bit unreliable. The washing machine did not work well - it took hours to do a load of wash!
Local attractions San Gimignano is beautiful with wonderful shopping and well worth a visit. The location of the villa is good for sight seeing - an easy drive to the train station and day trips to Florence, Sienna, Pisa, Chianti all doable. We enjoyed many of the restaurants in San Gimignano, especially Echoes for bruschetta and La Mangiatoia, owned by owners of the villa.
