Pietre Focaie, San Gimignano - Siena

5 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 10 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Part of a large country estate surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, this grand stone villa has all you could need for an indulgent and fun holiday. Sleeping 10 in five bedrooms, spacious interiors blend traditional Tuscan features such as exposed wooden beams and terracotta tiles with a luxurious five-star hotel feel, including chandeliers and French-style furniture, four-poster beds and showers with chromotherapy lights that change with the water temperature.

There are plenty of areas for admiring the rambling gardens and soaking up the enchanting rural setting, which means guests will find it hard to choose between the covered creeper-clad terrace to the front of the property, with a table and chairs to dine al fresco, and the glamorous private pool area with a row of sun beds, a hammock, both furnished with a sofa and chairs, and a large tennis court on site. The medieval walled town of San Gimignano, midway between Florence and Siena, is easy to reach and famed for its intact, striking towers, offering shops, restaurants and a not-to-be-missed ice cream parlour for some authentic gelato.

Our Thoughts
This villa really maximises the outside space and surrounding views with multiple spaces for enjoying it all. Several stone benches that are well-placed at the edge of the gardens, overlooking the villa’s environs, provide the perfect spots for sundowners at the end of an idyllic day. Or, for some deeper relaxation, bag the pair of deck chairs to the front of the property. Or if you are feeling energised, challenge your friends or family to a game of table tennis or billiards on the provided tables.

Five bedrooms. Five bathrooms, all en-suite. All bedrooms have views over the surrounding countryside and are equipped with music speakers. The owners also live on the estate in a separate property, and run and own La Mangatoia restaurant in San Gimignano. Pets are welcome; please advise us of the breed in advance. At on side of the property on a covered terrace you will find a billiard table, ping pong table and a barbeque.

The large, salt-cleansed pool has metal ladder steps leading into the water and is set in a secluded area away from the house, framed by a paved terrace furnished with several sun beds. There is a furnished gazebo and a furnished pergola at the pool, with views towards San Gimignano.
Pool size: 18m x 9m, 1-2m deep. Open mid-May through September, weather permitting.

We had a wonderful week at Pietre Focaie. The house was excellent (the kitchen especially) , the views were spectacular and the hosts were charming and welcoming. The weather was hot, hot, hot so we spent a lot of time up at the pool, and also on the tennis court when it was cooler. We did one or two trips but otherwise spent a lot of the time in and around the villa, cooking, reading, playing snooker and table tennis, swimming etc. Wonderfully relaxing.
We loved the different areas where you could get away and read and take in the views. Not everyone would like the owners' little dogs but we were OK with them!
Local attractions Of course San Gimignano is a must if you haven't been before. A magical town for wandering around, taking photos, shopping, listening to music and generally just chilling. On the last night we went to the owner's restaurant there and had a delicious meal (but perhaps not to be recommended for fish-lovers or vegetarians!) We also went to Monteriggioni, Colle di Val d'Elsa and Vinci- all worth a visit.
