Casa Il Melograno
This lovely Tuscan property sits in a cherished countryside location just 5km from San Gimignano – perfect for relaxing in the glorious grounds or exploring the medieval hilltop town with its famous towers.
Casa Il Melograno is part of an old farmhouse that has been lovingly restored into fabulous and spacious holiday accommodation with a super homely feel. The entrance is via the large covered terrace and leads straight in to the welcoming lounge and dining area with kitchen (well equipped with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher). The exposed stone walls along with the bright yellow and blue furnishings and terracotta floors ensure that the Tuscan character is apparent throughout the property. There is also a pretty double bedroom and a shower room on this level.
A staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a further twin bedroom, a double bedroom with a single sofa bed (perfect for a child) and a large bathroom with both bath tub and separate shower.
The covered terrace is the ideal spot to enjoy some leisurely dining at any time of the day as it looks out over the beautiful and private gardens with lawns and shady pine trees. The pool sits away from the accommodation and has a shallow end so that smaller guests may enjoy a dip and there are sunbeds and umbrellas for those wishing for a snooze in the warm Tuscan air!
The charming owners live in a separate part of the building and are a real plus as will give you lots of local information should you need it but if you prefer to explore on your own then you will not know they are there.
With San Gimignano on your doorstep, there is a wealth of shops, artisan boutiques and restaurants to sample and, should you wish to travel a little further afield, Florence, Siena, Certaldo and Volterra are all great days out.
