Entire home
You’ll have the villa to yourself.
Located in the Chianti Fiorentino, halfway between Florence and Siena, it can be easily reached by the highway, exit Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. It is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves alongside a forest of ancient oaks. On the ground floor: the dining room, a large living room, a large kitchen with a fireplace, the office and a guest bathroom. Upstairs: four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The rooms are airy, bright and have large windows. All rooms with air conditioning.

The space
The villa measures 400 square meters and has large, comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas. It is surrounded by a large garden with wonderful old oak trees that create a pleasant climate even on the hottest days. Furthermore, in Villa San Giovanni you will not run out of water even in the driest summers, because the property, in addition to being connected to the aqueduct, has a well where rainwater is collected and a cistern fed by a source.
The villa was built in 1930 on the spectacular ridge between the Val di Pesa and the Val d'Elsa. The garden and swimming pool were designed by the previous owner, an English landscape architect.
The house is reached by an asphalted road, but with very little traffic. This way you can easily get to Tavarnelle and other places of interest without having to use country roads, dirt roads and difficult to pass through.

Guest access
Guests have access to all internal and external parts of the house, except for two closed rooms to store Rossella's personal effects

Location

Barberino Tavarnelle, Toscana, Italy

Villa San Giovanni is surrounded by a beautiful well-preserved landscape. The most important places of interest nearby are among many: San Gimignano (20 km), San Donato in Poggio (10 km), Badia a Passignano (12km), Barberino Val D'Elsa (6 km), as well as the numerous farms that produce the classic Chianti. Siena and Florence are easily reachable via the Firenze-Siena highway.
The villa is about four km from Tavarnelle where there is a Coop supermarket (with parking and ATM) with a wide choice of groceries. In the center of the village there are newsstands for the purchase of newspapers, the post office, 4 banks, two libraries, the pharmacy and various shops. The closest hospital is in Poggibonsi. (12 k)
In Tavarnelle center there are several Tuscan restaurants. I definitely recommend the “Caffè degli Amici (Coffee of friends) where you can eat well at a really modest price; for fish lovers there is the restaurant "Fitti Fitti" and for true Neapolitan pizza the pizzeria "la Fornace" or at Palazzo Pretorio in San Donato in Poggio. In the house you will find a list of detailed information of restaurants, concerts and historical and traditional festivals in the area

    During your stay
    Hi, I'm Rossella. After many years, I decided to rent my house again in the summer and for this reason I am building a third bathroom upstairs and installing the air conditioning system in the rooms. I am taking care to complete the furnishings of the garden and swimming pool so that you can better enjoy your moments of relaxation. Upon your arrival, you will find what you need for breakfast, a fruit basket, two bottles of mineral water (however the water from the municipal aqueduct is drinkable), a bottle of wine. If you wish, we can make a first shopping on your order (cost of the service 15 euros).
    I am sure that you will find your stay at Villa San Giovanni extremely rewarding and you will share its beauty, hospitality and proximity to Florence, the qualities that, among many, made me choose this house
    I give space to my guests but I am available when they need it
