Tolly 1 is a delightful apartment on a lovely wine producing estate immersed in the countryside yet only a short distance from the famous medieval town of San Gimignano. Prettily furnished in country style, the apartment retains all the original characteristics yet is complete with today's modern comforts and has its' own patio area for dining al fresco. The swimming pool is framed by gorgeous views of the countryside and glimpses of the towers of San Gimignano.
