A beautiful country apartment an easy 2 kms walk from the town of San Gimignano, Strada Apartment 2 is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday. Located in the province of Siena, San Gimignano is well known for its white wine called ‘Vernaccia’ and its saffron cultivation.
The 75 square metre renovated apartment is one of two that can be rented on the property. Both apartments are part of a charming stone farmhouse and hamlet which dates back to the Middle Ages. Set on a hillside, there are ancient cypress trees scattered around and an organic olive grove. The apartments have wonderful views over the countryside and guests have use of the large swimming pool which is open from May to October.
The apartment accommodates up to 4 people and has two bedrooms, one a double bedroom, the other a twin with two single beds. There is one bathroom with a shower.
Inside, the apartments have been decorated with modern style and comforts alongside the characteristic original features that have been retained. Brick arches, terracotta tiled floors, wooden beamed ceilings, old fireplace and little cubby holes and alcoves…all of these historic features really add to the old world ambience and authentic feel.
