“Il Palagione” was a country house dating back to the 17th century and located on a hill halfway between San Gimignano and Volterra. From this high position, it enjoys a 360-degree view of the surrounding countryside with fields, meadows and woodlands.
The total peace and quiet render this a holiday immersed in nature. Lovers of history and art are spoilt for choice: San Gimignano with its towers and the Etruscan Volterra are a few minutes away by car, Siena is only a little further away. Lovers of good food and wine can dedicate whole days to their passion.
Instead, for those who love open air activities, it is possible to go cycling on the scenic roads, horse-riding, hiking and, at the end, try the thrill of a trip in a hot-air balloon. The property is made up of 3 buildings, the villa, an extension where the owners live and an extension kitted out as a restaurant where, those guests who choose to do so, can have Tuscan dishes prepared for them. The villa is divided into 3 apartments, two of which are on the first floor and are joined with stairs, the other is on the ground floor.
It is an ideal accommodation for groups of friends who want to spend their holidays together but keeping their privacy. The villa is reached by a typical avenue lined with cypress trees and, on the lawn surrounding it, there is the swimming pool for the guests’ exclusive use (6x12, 1.4 - 2.2m deep)(15/05 - 15/09), a wood-fired oven for pizzas, barbeque, large loggia with dining table, deck chairs and umbrellas. The guests can use the laundry room (washing machine). It is possible to request a maid service, a baby sitter, chef, cookery courses to be paid for on location. Central heating. Car park.
