This delightful, natural stone, renovated farmhouse has been lovingly restored by the un-intrusive owners who live next door and is ideal for couples or small families. Ideally located for visiting local attractions such as Siena and San Gimignano the villa is also a short walk from the local village of Pievescola.
The lovely swimming pool to the front of the house is surrounded by lawn and offers great views across the countryside. Inside, the house is traditionally furnished with style and comfort in mind and provides for a wonderful, Tuscan villa experience. In some parts of Italy a tourist tax maybe charged and is payable to Italian Authorities, this will be collected by the key holder or local agent. The cost is approximately €0.60 per person, per night per night and does not apply to children up to 14 years old.
This villa was perfect. It was very clean had wonderful facilities and was stocked by the owners with everything you could need. Really was excellent.

The welcome from the owners was exceptional with aperitifs and wine, also lots of extra touches like breakfasts and luxury items. Friendly but also unobtrusive, lovely.
Mrs Cullum, September 2012
this villa is perfect and the owners couldn't have been more welcoming. There was a free welcome pack with pasta and bread and cheese and a bottle of wine and a lovely pasta dish waiting in the fridge! The pictures do not do it any justice with a lovely interior, beautiful views and a fabulous pool. We will be going back as soon as we can!

This is an exceptional holiday destination; the villa was lovely, the owners friendly, kind, considerate and generous. Their own welcome pack put yours to shame.The location enabled up to visit many beautiful parts of Tuscany.

Absolutely fantastic villa, the owners have thought of everything that their guests may need. Towels and toiletries are all provided along with a plentiful supply of towels for the pool. We arrived to find that the fridge had been stocked with Ham, Cheese, Milk, Juice, Wine and even some homemade pasta sauce. In addition there was a basket with bread, pasta, crisps, biscuits etc. Once we had settled in we were treated to a bottle of Prosecco, ham & cheese focaccia, salami, olives home made peach chutney. Gigliola & Sergio made us feel super welcome and we do hope that we can visit again!

Gigliola is a fantastic villa in a great location for exploring Tuscany, being well placed for visits to Siena, Florence, Volterra, San Gimignano, etc. Sergio and Gigliola were so warm and welcoming - being served a delicious platter of home produced meat and cheese with a bottle of bubbly on our first evening was superb, and the welcome pack was simply outstanding - some items we didn't need to top up for the entire stay. The villa itself is spotless and well appointed. Pool was brilliant and very clean. We had a relaxing couple of weeks in glorious countryside with friendly hosts who were on hand for any questions but were unobtrusive. Perfect!

Villa is in a beautiful setting and is equipped and maintained to the highest standards. The owners are very friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. If you wish to visit Florence, we highly recommend parking at Siena railway station (2€ per day) and taking the train which was good value by U.K. Standards and easy to do.
We had a fabulous time.

The grounds are fantastic, beautifully maintained. The pool is really good size with fantastic views across the hills. Good location, walkable to the village yet still quiet and peaceful. The villa itself is very cool and though the kitchen is small it is very well equipped and the welcome hamper is very generous. I would happily go back.

Excellent. Very friendly owners, on site but unobtrusive. Very secluded guest area. Absolutely marvellous get you in pack including restaurant quality fresh prepared food and a wide selection of other food and basic supplies. No need to shop for a couple of days. Welcoming local amenities, restaurants, cafes etc. Could easily live there.
