Apartment Rental in Tuscany, San Gimignano - Il Cortile del Borgo 14
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.

We could not have been more satisfied with our stay at Il Cortile del Borgo 14!
Del Borgo 14 is extremely comfortable, quiet and private. The private patio has a storybook view over the Tuscan hills. With one bedroom and bath upstairs and one bedroom and bath downstairs the villa affords very comfortable accommodations.
Beautiful Tuscan views and the closeness to San Gimignano as well as several other Tuscan hill towns.

The property was better than I had ever anticipated. It is definitely a property for adults and not a place for families, especially with small children. It's quiet and peaceful and the "house rules" emphasize allowing all guests to enjoy their peace and privacy. Perfect in my book, but may not be for everyone.
The property is beautiful. The renovation of this old farm was handled by one of the co-owners who is an architect and interior designer. The decor is sophisticated and charming at the same time and the entire property is extremely well maintained with lavender, rosemary and sage lining the pathways. Number 14 has a covered patio with extensive views over a vineyard to the Tuscan hills beyond. The owners are on the property everyday and are warm and welcoming, happy to give recommendations and to hear about your discoveries. The dinners offered on-site three nights a week, were delicious and a great bargain. We'd go back in a minute!
The property is very well located, not too far from the main road between Florence and Sienna, making exploring Tuscan hill towns a breeze. We were surrounded by vineyards and olive trees and silence.

The upstairs bedroom is reached by a small circular staircase. This was not a problem for us but could be for some.
We loved the patio in our unit. It was great at the end of the day to sit and enjoy some wine and the spectacular view. The owners were all great and very helpful. We had dinner on the property all three nights they were available and they were wonderful. The property was even more beautiful than pictured and very clean.
Everything. The setting was beautiful. The villa is close to many great towns. We visited Volterra, Siena, Cortona. Montalcino, Monterriggioni and Colle de Val D'Elsa.
