The apartments are located in the heart of the Chianti area, near San Gimignano, a small Tuscan village within the municipality of Capezzano which stands at the top of a hill - a breathtaking landscape.
The ancient houses of the village, with a splendid view of San Gimignano and Certaldo, have maintained their typical Tuscan austere elegance which has been enriched by all the modern comforts and offers a number of options for guests so they can choose the accommodation that's best for their way of life and their idea of a holiday in a farmhouse.
Within an area of 500 meters there are four different free-standing structures, independent from the main mansion, where you'll find the welcoming area of the complex complete with a reception desk, small shop, wine cellars and a restaurant with terrace from where you have a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills. Three rooftop swimming pools, close to the peripheral structures housing the rooms and apartments, are available so guests can enjoy a truly pleasant holiday in a farmhouse in San Gimignano.
Guests can follow the rhythm of the countryside as well as the daily activities of the farm, such as the grape or olive harvest. Moreover, guests can attend Tuscan cooking classes, visit wineries, and even take part in oil and wine tastings.
Here you will find ultimate relaxation, walking or cycling along the trails that lead to San Gimignano, among hillsides adorned with vineyards, olive groves and woods, or just relax back at the farm, admiring the scenery from the edge of the Capezzano pool, reading, swimming or just savoring the silence of the countryside.
