Tignano offers peace and tranquillity for a relaxing holiday in typical Tuscan villas. Care has been taken to preserve the original state of this pretty stone property.


Outside the villas there is a large well-maintained sun drenched lawn circled by trees and shrubs providing privacy. Down steps from the lawn there is the swimming pool with its superb views.
Near the property there is the castle of Tignano and a tiny typical Tuscan hamlet from which the property obtains it’s name. All around Tignano there are fields, vineyards and olive groves.
The owner's son with his young family live at the property. They do not use the pool or guests private areas.

Tignano is a large villa entered from up a few steps from the stone terrace to the front. To one side of the terrace there is a covered loggia with table and chairs for dining al fresco.

On entering you find yourself in a large dining room with open fireplace and a wooden table comfortably seating 10 people. To the left is a pretty, tastefully furnished lounge that has Sat TV. There are terracotta floors and typical ceiling with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
From the dining room, to the right, there is access to the fully equipped kitchen that includes, gas hobs, fridge/freezer and oven. This room also has a fireplace. To one side is the dining area with a table that can seat the whole group of 10 people. The kitchen leads into a simple sitting room that has terracotta floors and ceilings with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.


Upstairs from the lounge are the two double bedrooms both rooms have an en-suite bathroom with shower. These rooms also have terracotta floors and ceiling with wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
From the little sitting room on the other side of the house stairs take you to the first floor where there are two bedrooms, both with double beds. There is one bathroom with a shower. Spiral stairs lead to a third bedroom with twin beds. This is a simple room with space only for the beds. It would therefore be better suited for children rather than adults. There is also a bathroom with shower on the ground floor of the villa.
The third bedroom is up the spiral stairs and not indicated on the floor plans.

While staying at Tignano the owners can organise massages (ayurveda,shiatzu, reiki) for you to enjoy at the villa.
On request they can also book you for dinner in a nearby restaurant for the day of your arrival.

This villa availability must be confirmed when booking.

Great villa for large groups and the pool was brilliant - even better than the pictures suggest! Owners were very helpful and we'd definitely recommend it and go back. Slightly closer to the road than we realised but it's still very safe and quiet.
Local attractions Great location for Florence, Siena and all the hill towns.

Beautiful house,amazing swimming pool with a nice view.Everything was nice and neat.And we really had luck with the weather. I'm not sure if it's suitable for small children between 1 and 2 years because of the stairs.My son is two and a half and he was fine but with smaller ones you have to be more careful. Two small things to add.There is a working dishwasher but it's not washing good so we washed everything with hands.And the first two days there was a really unpleasant smell coming from the bathroom....at least in the left side of the house.It is probably because nobody used it for a while before us....and the smell went away after two days. But I am not considering this as a problem.We had a relly great time there.
Local attractions Beside the famous cities like Siena,Pisa and Florence I suggest San Gimignano. Really beautiful.

het is een prachtig verblijf, prachtig uitzicht en mooi zwembad, waarvan we erg van genoten hebben. Caterina is een goede gastvrouw en stond altijd klaar met diverse tips&tricks. Eindconclusie: een prachtig en prettig verblijf mede door de kokkin.
Enkele opmerkingen zijn op z'n plaats:
-huisje is meer geschikt voor 8 dan 10 personen
-WiFi,Electra (regelmatig doorslaan stoppen!) en warmwaterketel (inmiddels gerepareerd) werkten niet correct.
- Afvalemmer té klein en niet geschikt om afval te scheiden
- Deurklink op tuinhek ( = de voordeur ) niet gebruiksvriendelijk
- Betere/luxere koffiemachine zou verbetering zijn.

This was a most pleasurable vacation and due to the superior location and comfortable accommodations as well as the assistance of the owners.
The house was pleasantly appointed and plenty of room for entertainments and relaxation by all. New Kitchen was an added luxury. The yard, patio and swimming were also first class and we put this to use throughout our stay.
The location was excellent for us as 5 minutes to the Freeway yet in a secluded location with views of vineyards, Olive Groves and local churches / villages across the valleys.
The owner and Jemma were very helpful and always available - They connected us with many local restaurants and events which made our stay memorable and of the highest quality.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Local attractions Visit and buying items among the locals in the weekly market in Tavarnelle; Enjoyed 2 great meals in Tavarnelle and Barberino; enjoyed a lovely evening concert in Sant' Appiano; enjoyed the visit to a local winery and cheese maker about 15 minutes from the house.

Situation parfaite de la maison au cœur du chianti à quelques km de Sienne et de Florence. Maison grande et très agréable, très bien agencé. Vivre à huit avec des adolescents ne pose aucun problème. Piscine parfaite (ni trop grande, ni trop petite, ni trop profonde).
Deux points négatifs :
- la Wifi : quasi pas de réception ou réception très aléatoire avec un débit très faible. Pas l'idéal pour les adolescents qui ont trouvé le temps long et nous ont fait part de leur mécontentement.
- des remontées mauvaises odeurs tout au long de la semaine dans une salle de bain contigu à une chambre.
Local attractions Visites de Florence, Sienne et San Gimignano. Visite chez des vignerons producteurs de chianti, la région du chianti. Restaurant 1 étoile au michelin à quelques mètres de la maison - superbe repas et magnifique soirée entre nous dans ce lieu magique.

Het huis is ruim, met genoeg ruimte voor privacy van ieder. Compleet ingericht, ruim voldoende van alles en alles werkte. De tuin is echt prachtig en erg groot. De buitenzitjes zijn mooi. We hebben genoten van het ontbijt op het terras. Het zwembad en de omgeving zijn goed onderhouden. Door het mooie weer konden we er heerlijk van genieten. De ontvangst was hartelijk en de service prima. We werden zelfs getrakteerd op een door familie van de eigenaar zelfgemaakte pannacotta, heerlijk.
De ligging van het huis is mooi, we konden volop genieten van het uitzicht.
De ligging tussen de steden Florence en Siena is perfect. Het aanrijden vanuit Pisa is goed te doen.
We hebben genoten van een perfecte week in Toscane met onze volwassen kinderen en hun aanhang.
Local attractions In Tignano zelf vonden we het kasteelplein erg mooi. San Gimignano is prachtig. Een ritje naar Greve is ook de moeite waard. De wijnproeverij in Gaiole (Casa d'Ami) was erg goed verzorgd en werd heel enthousiast gepresenteerd. Zeker aan te raden. Siena heeft ons erg geboeid. In Florence was het te druk, maar het is een mooie stad met zeker interessante musea voor als je er langer dan een dag bent.

Villa disposant d'un grand parc, située à mi-chemin entre Florence et Sienne, en pleine campagne: après les différentes visites effectuées, nous avons apprécié le calme, la quiétude, la sérénité de l'endroit. Le 1er niveau de la villa, réservé à la vie diurne, bien équipé(cuisine, salle à manger, 2 salons,TV); le 1er étage avec 4 grandes chambres (idéal pour 4 couples), ayant chacune une salle de bain avec douche et WC. Disposition qui nous convenait parfaitement. Par beau temps, nous avons pu manger à l'extérieur, sur la terrasse.
La gentillesse, l'amabilité, la disponibilité des propriétaires (habitant à 5-6 km de la villa).
Pour les "jeunes", la connexion WiFi n'était pas satisfaisante. Pour les plus anciens, c'était secondaire.
La piscine, très bien située, aurait bien plu aux jeunes (avons eu une semaine bien ensoleillée), mais elle n'est fonctionnelle qu'après le 1er mai.

Nearest town

Barberino Val d’Elsa, 2km away, is the nearest village, it is a small hamlet but there are shops there. 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
