Apartment Rental in Tuscany, San Gimignano - Il Cortile del Borgo 8
Description from the manager
Between Poggibonsi and San Gimignano, this holiday accommodation in Tuscany provides the benefits of a large Tuscan estate without the necessity of having to travel with a large group. This Tuscany holiday accommodation is an apartment within a villa, with plenty of space for outdoor relaxation, walks, and swimming. In addition to having your own rental accommodation near San Gimignano, which is where the movie "Tea with Mussolini" starring Maggie Smith, Cher, and Judi Dench was filmed, you'll find yourself in the perfect location for winery-hopping and day trips to Florence, Siena, and more.
This estate on a hillside, right on what was once the old country road leading to the town of San Gimignano, and boasts a stupendous view of the town’s famous towers. Set magnificently within the splendid Tuscan countryside, the property is surrounded by olive groves and vines that produce oil of superb quality and the excellent white wine, Vernaccia. There’s also a large park with cypress trees and flowers. The property was recently renovated, but dates back to the Middle Ages. The villa has been divided into independent apartments. Guests can make use of the pergola for al fresco meals, or enjoy the shared pool (8m x 16m, open Apr 24 - Oct 30). There’s parking on the property.

Absolutely fabulous. What a beautiful location! And the owners are the most generous of people. They made our stay so enjoyable. We would live there in a minute!
The location! The owners! The views! The meals! The wine! The fireflies! Everything was perfect.
What a perfect place for our day trips. We loved being so close to San Gimignano...what a magical town! And our trips to Florence, Siena, Cortona, Montepulciano and all the hill towns in the Chianti Classico were so memorable.

The property was a dream. The location is perfect for day trips to Siena, Chianti, Florence, etc. and you could ask for a better "local" spot than nearby San Gimignano. We absolutely loved every bit of our stay there and would definitely return!
It's hard to pinpoint what we liked the most...the owners are amazing. We arrived late our first night in the midst of a torrential rainstorm and not wanting us to get lost on the dark local roads they met us at the local supermarket so that we could follow them to the property...the service only got better from there! The actual apartment was fantastic and quite roomy for just 2 people. There was nothing we were without.
The convenience to everything. It's quite literally the best location for taking day trips to the varying surrounding areas and very easy to navigate.

The peaceful vineyard setting, quiet. The dinners available on Saturday, Tuesdays and Fridays were the best meals we had in Tuscany. The family members running the Villa were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our side patio in the morning having coffee and our breakfast. You must keep the gate locked as other villas do not have a private outside area.
Property is very close to San Gimignano via a dirt back road. A great area to walk in the morning along the dirt road. Centrally located to the "Pam" food market only minutes away.
