Rich with local history this estate in Tuscany is a splendid example of the struggle for power played out between the various ages here between Florence and Pisa.  This lovely rental home was once one of the many from the Buonaparte family of San Minato dating back to the mid 1600's.  The present day owner has restored the Tuscan villa rental and furnished it in a classical yet comfortable style - perfect for relaxing and enjoying company of friends and family.  This spacious 4 bedroom, 3 bath villa rental is decorated with charm and elegance.

Equal distance to both the Florence and the Pisa  airport, this Italian villa is perfect for a spur of the moment vacation!

This Tuscan villa rental located only 5 km from the enchanting town of San Minato is situated on two floors, with a large private garden.  There are two other structures on the property one is the family chapel, which is presently not open to the public and close to the villa is part of the original annex built in the late 1700's. The property is reserved only for the guest staying in the main villa.
On the ground floor of this villa rental in Tuscany one will find a spacious living room area with sofas and chairs for the group to relax together after meals or after a long day traveling to the nearby sites such as SienaSan Gimignanoor Volterra.  You will also find a TV room with fireplace and a full bathroom with shower, WC, bidet and sink on the ground floor.

There is a spacious dining room area in the Italian villa rental with a table large enough for the group of 10 persons.  The eat-in kitchen is a typical Tuscan kitchen with a large dark wood table and a huge fireplace which served not only for cooking the meats and vegetables grown on the farm itself - but also to warm the family in the winter mornings before they went to work at the then and now prosperous olive groves and vineyards.  The kitchen is now furnished with a dishwasher, microwave and all necessary cookware.

Up the stairs in this prestigious Tuscan villa you will find 4 bedrooms - each with its own personal charm and character as well as frescoed ceilings and lovely views. There are two bedrooms, each one with two twin beds that can be made into a double bed upon request, which have panoramic views of the valley below. One of the two bathrooms located on the first floor is fully equipped with sink, bidet, WC and shower.

The second bathroom located on the first floor of this Tuscan villa rental has a sink, bidet, WC and a bathtub with a handheld shower.  There is one bedroom decorated in royal blues, terracotta floors and original frescos on the ceiling with a fixed double bed.  The last of the 4 bedrooms is a twin bedroom which beds cannot be joined, and has a great view of the front garden.
The garden is furnished with tables and chairs in the little pine forest (pineta) in front of the villa.  The owner has also provided a BBQ and a ping pong table for his guests use.  Not far off, the local towns offer open air theater productions in July and professional concerts of various types of music in the local churches.  And for the gourmets in the group, November is the annual White Truffle food festival.

The swimming pool area, located downhill just a few meters from the villa, is completely private, surrounded by olive groves and a large park. The terracotta floor provides a comfortable sunbath at the deck-chairs you have available, umbrellas are also at your disposal for some shadow, according to your needs. The Roman steps made this pool child friendly.

Margareta Andersson, Nyköping, Sweden

The house was extraordinary with beautiful rooms. The poolarea was very nice and it was cleaned every day. The owner was present at our arrivel late at night, showing us around and telling us about good restaurants and shops. She was easy to get in contact with when we had questions during our stay. The agency´s home page works well. No problems with payment or to get information. We enjoyed our stay in San Miniato very much and plan to come back!

villa San Miniato is beautiful and confortable ,but the real treasure is" Maria ".She was a gracious hostess accomodating us for our many heeds. She recommeded wonderful restaurants,a great winery tour.But most of all, when our rental car stopped,she arranged for a taxi to the airport and spoke to Hertz for assistence....and aleways with a smile and wonderful disposition.The villa is in an exellent location. All of our trips were an hour or less away by the "FI-PI-LI". Wi love the people in Tuscany-always plessant-Would recommend this villa to averyone. The Louisiana Group

San Miniato and its surroundings were beautiful! Rooms were pretty and very well equipped. We were lucky to have a nice and hot weather yet the villa was cool and comfortable and the pool was such a relief. Week was way too short a holiday in Tuscany! And the pig was cute!
Il Lago restaurant nearby was a very good one and the staff was helpful and English-speaking. We had rented cars and visited Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano, all very beautiful hilltop towns quite close to Villa San Miniato. Definitely worth visiting.

We have not looking to come home to 12°c in norwey.Haaland family

we loved villa san miniato:the house..the vies..the garden.. the pig the bells..the trips to Lucca,San Gimignano,Siena,Volterra,Pisa.. and our mums and dads have a great time too judging by the number of wine bottles and the truffles consumed. H.and B (4 and 2 yares) C. (20 mounts). Ranning up that hill is a good way to burn off all the pasta!!!! Tankeyou Maria and your lovely family. D. F.

What an outstanding place Tuscany is! Even though it rained a little bit, the weather was great. Mild and perfect for sightseeing all the lush, green Tuscan landscape. The villa was beautiful - right on top of a hill with a great view of the valley. And so comfortable too. Lots of space inside. Maria was a very charming and accomodating hostess.

Cathy Mincberg, Portland, United States

I would recommend this villa to any traveler. The views were spectacular, the owner (Maria) most accomodating, and we loved the huge fireplace in the kitchen. San Miniato is easily accessible to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena and all points in-between. What a great place to relax after a hectic day of sightseeing. I used a GPS which was invaluable!

28 May 2008

Ideally situated for visiting most sights in Tuscany: Firenze, Pisa, Lucca, Sienna, and San Gimignano all within less than an hour's drive. The pool was excellent. The terrace to the front of the house provided shade and picturesque views throughout the day. The owner, Signora P. and family were very welcoming and extremely helpful (especially when locked out of the house!)PAM minimarket in Montaione is the most easily accessed supermarket; 10 minutes drive from the house. Villa da Filicaja vinyard just past Montaione for excellent quality and priced wine and olive oil.

Robert Kiely, Cambridge, United States

A wonderful restaurant Colle Brunacchi, country fare in a beautiful setting, is ten minutes by car. The villa and surroundings are lovely, peaceful. The house is very tastefully and practically furnished. The owner was most helpful and pleasant. If you want to be away from tourists in a country village, this is perfect.

The pool is lovely and situated very beautiful in the olivefield. The owners are very, very nice and did everything to make the stay good. Everything was very clean and nice too. Early every morning the owners cleaned the pool, so it was always very attractive and clean. The wine from the property was very good :o)

29 August 2006

the view from 2 of the bedrooms was absolutely spectacular; the town of San Miniato was very quaint and intersting...all in all a wonderful experience

A very fine experience. The owner was most gracious and the villa was outstanding. None of us will ever forget cooking dinner each night while enjoying the wood burning fireplace.

Alan & Marianne Whitten, Ottawa, Canada

It was a beutiful area and the house was well equipped. Our hostess was very helpful and obliging. One of our group spoke Italian so that made things even easier. Local restaurants were good and fairly close. The price was very reasonable and everyone in our group was very pleased and felt we had really been lucky to find such a good spot. It was perfect for 3 couples and we found it very comfortable and relaxing.
