Il Vecchio Fienile is a beautiful detached house with private swimming pool, surrounded by its own well kept garden with wonderful views over vineyards and cypress groves towards medieval San Gimignano visible in the distance. Immersed in the countryside yet only 2 km from San Gimignano, it provides very high standard secluded accommodation in a much sought after area of Tuscany.
Built on a slope, the accommodation is on three floors, all connected by internal staircases, but each floor actually opens on to an area of the garden. Originally a hayloft, the house has been carefully restored by its attentive owners and it is fitted and furnished to an extremely high standard. Great care has been taken to preserve the original characteristics of the house, such as slanted brick windows in the spacious bedrooms, terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and brick archways, all so typical of Tuscan country architecture. The addition of 3 brand new shower rooms, one on each floor, and 2 fully equipped kitchens ensure modern comfort, and marry perfectly with the classic furniture. Both living rooms have comfortable sitting areas with settees which can also convert to double beds on request, and the lounge on the ground floor also has a characteristic fireplace, a specially commissioned hand painted mural depicting the beautiful landscape, and arched patio doors which open onto the large patio and garden.
Within the well kept grounds close to the house is the large swimming pool (14m x 7m) which is private to Il Vecchio Fienile and has a lovely view over the countryside.
The house and its garden is in a lovely position, just off the country road to Ulignano, it is fully enclosed, and has its own parking area. it is only 2km from San Gimignano and its selection of shops and excellent local restaurants, and many of the regions other sights are within easy driving distance. Florence and Siena are both easily accessible via main road and rail links from nearby Poggibonsi, and Volterra, famous for its alabaster production as well as its wealth of historic monuments is only 30km away.
