Ragnaia is located about 500 metres walk from San Gimignano. It's the ideal villa to enjoy the medieval Tuscan town and has great access to the Chianti and other sights in Tuscany. The old stone villa has the most spectacular views.

At the property there is a lovely pool surrounded by olive groves. It's in a perfect position to enjoy the Tuscan sun while admiring the stunning views across to San Gimignano and off across the hills into the Chianti.

Ragnaia is a typical old Tuscan farm building. It is set up as two independent apartments over two floors, so is great for family groups. Also on the property is a stone barn where the owner lives.
The top floor apartment is entered up a typical flight of external stairs, with a small loggia at the top. From here the is a single step into the large, spacious and wonderfully luminous living area. This large room with wooden floors and a lovely ceiling with terracotta tiles and wooden beams, is comfortably furnished with a double sofa and a couple of armchairs. Against one wall is a large wooden table seating up to 10 people, to one side is a fireplace and a TV with satellite.
To the left of the room you pass into a large kitchen, also with a wooden floor and tastefully furnished. The kitchen has a large fridge with freezer, gas hobs, an oven and dishwasher. It is well equipped and also has a TV in one corner. There is a table with chairs for 6 people. From the room there are great views.
On the other side of the lounge is the sleeping area, which is composed of two bedrooms and bathrooms. One of the bathrooms is accessed from the lounge, through a laundry room with washing machine and ironing facilities. This bathroom has a Victorian bathtub with clawed feet and a handheld shower. It's bedroom is a spacious twin room, also with direct access to the lounge. The room is furnished with a large wardrobe, chest of drawers and has a beautiful view through the arched window.
The second bedroom is down some terracotta steps. It has a large en-suite bathroom has a sloped roof, it has a shower, sink with Victorian style fittings. The room is a double bedroom. The lovely warm room is furnished with a comfortable bed, big wardrobe, dresser and bedside tables. From the window there are breathtaking views.
The downstairs part of the villa Ragnaia is entered through a large arched door from a small terrace. The door leads into the main living area which was originally the stables. The room has a high ceiling and has a beautiful traditional stone column with terracotta arches. The spacious room is simply furnished with a three seat sofa, a couple of antique sideboards and a lovely fireplace.
Access to the kitchen is through a terracotta arch. The kitchen has a warm wooden floor, with a wooden table and chairs for 6 people. Along the back wall is the cooking area which has gas hobs, oven and dishwasher. There is also a large fridge with freezer, and an open fireplace perfect to barbeque indoors. There is access to the garden from the kitchen.
The sleeping area is to the other side of the living area. From here there is a small hall, off which to the left some steps lead down to the biggest double bedroom in the villa. On one wall it has large picture window decorated by traditional protective terracotta, while a second wall has two big arched windows. These provide the room with lots of light and amazing views, however there are no shutters or heavy curtains on the windows so there is light in the room from early morning. The room has a large wardrobe and a fireplace. The bathroom is next to the bedroom. It has garden access and wooden floors. Inside there is a freestanding travertine bath with Victorian taps and handheld shower.
Returning to the little hall there is a bathroom with a shower. This was once the bread oven of the farmhouse, and has an unusual feature of the toilet and bidet under a little private arch. Two bedrooms use this bathroom. The first is a double bedroom up 7 steep steps. It is a room with a sloping ceiling, which is approximately 1.6 metres at the lowest point. There is a low window providing the room with enough light. In the room is a wardrobe and through a low door, about 1.5metres high, there is a walk-in wardrobe, an average height person can stand in this room.

The second bedroom is down some stairs from the little hall. This is a spacious double bedroom with a high wooden bed and access to the garden. There is a large window providing lots of light. The room is furnished with a wardrobe, chest of drawers and TV.
The garden is simply outfitted with pretty lawns and trees. It has some children’s swings and is completely fenced. The property does continue after the fence down to a little stream. In the garden, behind the villa steps lead to a terrace with a table and chairs to seat 10 people for dining al fresco. This area is dotted with citrus trees and has excellent views all the way across the Chianti and down to the south of Siena and Montalcino.

We felt welcomed, the views were fabulous, access to San Gimignano was a short walk away - uphill; but nice to amble downhill after a meal out! And no need to deal with parking. Pool was clean. Outside eating area really lovely.
Downstairs kitchen needs updating. It was not well lit and plates etc. were piled on the work surfaces which left little working area. (Can't comment on the upstairs kitchen as we didn't use it. Downstairs was more fully stocked and was convenient to eating outdoors) There were biting insects so screens needed, which were on some windows, but not all.

Location, plenty of room to spread out for a large group, privacy . Easy access to public bus to Poggibonsi and beyond. Handy being near cooperative for supplies.
Linen needs to be updated. Possibly brighter lights in cooking area. More efficient washing machine. Roadway to property needs improving. Sign needed on property.
Local attractions A good base to explore the regions of Tuscany,, especially Volterra, Sienna and the Chianti region.
