Podere la Marronaia is a small familyrunned farm, sitting on a small hill surrounded by vineyards and olivegroves, not far from the historic center of S.Gimignano (2km ). In 2000 my husband Luigi and I together with our sons Pietro and Corrado, in love with this place, decided to buy this property to make of it our home and business. Today our farm is involved in flats renting, production and sale of organic wines and evo olive, and offer to the guests wine tastings and Tuscan cooking classes.

The space

The core of our farmhouse consists of the watching tower built in 1200 as part of the defensive wall of the city of San Gimignano.
After the purchasing in 2000 we started a long rennovation work and had 3 flats from the old stables.
Podere la Marronaia is a family runned farm, today dedicated to tourist accommodation with flats and agricultural activity, with production and sale of organic wines and extra virgin olive.
The Yellow apartment consists of a large kitchen-living room, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower, 1 small closet.
The apartment is on the ground floor of our farmhouse and has two entrances: the main entrance is in the kitchen-living room with direct view on the courtyard in front of the farmhouse, the secondary entrance is located in the bedroom and has direct view on garden.
It is equipped with: electric oven, crockery, dishwasher, 4 burner stove, fridge freezer, satellite TV, iron and ironing board, small appliances, hair dryer, wi-fi.

The cost for renting includes the complete room-kitchen-bathroom, electricity, water, use of swimming pool (open in summer), private parking, use of the property facilities. Heating (winter) is independent and consumption. The wi-fi is available and free of charge.

Podere la Marronaia is the ideal place for those looking for a relaxing holiday without sacrificing the convenience of being close to the historical center of San Gimignano.
The city center is easily reachable, after 400 meters of white road you reach the main road, from here a sidewalk giving direct access to the center (2km).
In summer it is absolutely nice to go by bike or walking or jogging, and it's very easy to find people who do the same.
From the large garden, the view spans 360 ° from the peaks of the 'Central Apennine until the Chianti hills and the towers of San Gimignano, which offers admirable scenarios.
The most important cities in the region are within easy reach: Siena 40km, Florence 50 km, Volterra 15 km, Pisa 80km, Lucca 90km.
Pets are accepted on request.

Each guest will be offered of a complete experience in our company with a visit to the vineyard/cellar and a tasting of our organic products.

The property is in a stunning hill top location, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Completely peaceful. There is a good sized pool to use, large gardens and a sheltered patio area too. It has all been refurbished in traditional style. The accommodation is simple with all the resources you need for a stay in the sun. However the kitchen is not very well equipped for extensive self-catering.

We had a wonderful week at Podere la Marronaia. The location is so beautiful, with rolling hills, olive trees and vineyards on all sides - it was dark when we arrived and it was breathtaking to open the curtains in the morning and see the view for the first time. We loved having our breakfast in the sun and then walking into San Gimignano - although peaceful and secluded, the flat was really conveniently located and easy to find. Silvia and her family were so welcoming and lovely, and made our stay really special. Wine tasting at their family vineyard was the highlight of our stay. We also loved hanging out with all the animals - two dogs and four cats, all very friendly! We were sad to leave and would definitely recommend a stay here - a truly unforgettable experience.

We enjoyed staying at Podere La Marronaia very much. Especially the countryside and the views are amazing. We stayed at the yellow Apartment (for 2 persons), which has a bedroom, bathroom and a big kitchen, which is also the livingroom. We also enjoyed using the pool every day. We can recommend it highly if you love the countryside. To go to san Gimingnano town it takes 30 minutes to walk and 5 minutes by car. We can also recommend the wine tasting of 'Podere la marronaia' which is close to town. Nice wines and good atmosphere. The hosts are very helpful and friendly.

Silvia's place is a perfect location for a typical tuscan countryside holiday: the landscape was beautiful, and we could enjoy the view while sunbathing at the swimming pool.The apartment is cosy and well equipped. San Gimignano is in a close distance. Except for the check in policy a really great place to discover Tuscany.

The Podere La Maronnaia was a perfect place to stay. A lovely flat - one of three on the ground floor of the family home. A working farm of Olive trees 70 plus years old and grape vines and a 360 view of the beautiful Tuscan Hills. The pool and fan were a blessing during our stay as it was very hot in July. The town of San Gimignano is an accessible walk along dirt and main roads and a must is a visit to their winery for lunch and wine tasting. The food and wines were outstanding. A wonderful experience. We recommend walking about 30 mins each way as you shouldn't drive afterwards. We explored quite a bit of Tuscany from this base. Sylvia, Luigi and family were very lovely and welcoming. As were the 4 cats and 2 dogs who respected your space. I recommend collecting a few necessities (coffee, tea, oil, milk, bread etc.) before arrival as the closest shopping is 40 minute walk or 5 minute drive into town and very expensive. would highly recommend staying. Hope to return one day. thanks Sylvia.
