San Romolo, Tignano - Barberino Val d'Elsa - Florence

5 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 10 people Private Pool 4 - Very good - Very good 4

This restored farmhouse, less than an hour’s drive south of Florence, has much to offer. Its location in the gently rolling foothills of the Chianti guarantees a peaceful retreat, yet the glories of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra are within easy reach. From the terrace of your private pool, which sits in a sheltered corner of the garden beneath the villa, you look out at a patchwork of olive groves, vineyards and woodland.

San Romolo’s five bedrooms – four in the main house, one in a charming studio annexe across the garden – can host 10 guests with ease. The villa will suit groups of family or friends equally. The single-storey studio, which has its own small terrace, living area and kitchenette, is ideal for any members of the group who would appreciate additional privacy. However, the villa’s double lounge with a TV area at one end, a kitchen-diner that opens on to a shaded terrace and a sunny poolside, all ensure that there are plenty of areas for shared downtime.

Our Thoughts
We think San Romolo has all the ingredients for a memorable holiday with the best that Tuscany has to offer. You are in a peaceful spot a short walk from the picturesque medieval hamlet of Barberino Val d’Elsa, where you’ll find several small places to eat and enjoy a drink, a van visits the house every day with fresh bread, you can even forget the hassles of traffic and parking and take the bus to Florence from nearby Tavarnelle. Shared al-fresco meals on the main terrace are sure to be among your most-valued moments.

Five bedrooms. Four bathrooms, one en-suite. Availability must be confirmed with the owner before we can complete a booking for this house. San Romolo is attached to another villa, but its gardens, terrace and pool are not overlooked. The owners can organise ayurvedic and shiatsu massages, as well as reiki treatments, for you at the villa. On request, they can also provide a pre-arrival shopping service at no extra cost and/or book a nearby restaurant for dinner on the day of your arrival.

The pool, which has ladder steps to enter the water, has a terrace with 10 sunloungers and 5 deckchairs, as well as a small bamboo-covered pergola on the grass nearby.
Pool size: 12m x 6m, 1.6m deep. Open June to September, weather permitting.

There is another village, Tavernelle, which is 3km away where there are some restaurants and a supermarket. In the town Poggibonsi, 10km away, there is a large supermarket and wide selection of shops. An excellent restaurant that we recommend you try is La Fattoria, which is located just before Tavernelle

When we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome by the owners, who's English and knowledge of the area are excellent. The house is in a wonderful position with beautiful views especially from the pool. It's ideally located for exploring the Tuscan countryside. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at San Romolo, nice bedrooms, and places to relax, we particularly enjoyed dining outside in the seating area. There is a bread van that stops outside the house in the mornings for you to buy daily bread which is lovely. What would have improved our stay were some very simple things e.g. a mop and bucket in case of excessive rain fall ( which we had and it came through the closed windows!!) we had to clear up using towels! Also, the kitchen had lots of crockery and cutlery but could benefit from a few more useful items such as oven gloves and tea towels! However, we had a wonderful week and the owners were very accommodating of any requests we had. Thank you Caterina!
Local attractions Montepulciano, Pienza and Montecino are well worth a visit as is San Gimignano. Florence and Sienna are simply stunning. A hotel on the road from Tavernelle to Barberino has excellent food.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:19.01.2018
The owner is sorry to hear you could not find some items - there are cloths and oven gloves in a drawer in the kitchen. There is also a mop and bucket in the shed outside with all the cleaning materials. They always leave their phone number at check in so that guests can be in touch for any issues - large or small! Thank you for your review.
