La Dolce Villa Under the Tuscan Sun

Villa Pallero

San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy

Italy is the third most visited country on earth, but you wouldn’t know it looking out over the serene Tuscan landscape that surrounds Villa Pallero, a hilltop retreat in the countryside near San Gimignano.

Radiating out from this hill is all that visitors to Tuscany come to see: the undulating patchwork blanket of verdant fields, punctuated in spring with smudges of red wildflowers and bursting with sunflower yellow and silvery olive groves, and regimental rows of cypress pine lining the bianca strade – the white unsealed roads that follow the rise and fall of the land.

This visual currency and the glorious weather conspire to seduce both romantics and cynics, and many visitors dream of relocating to this rural idyll to write, grow olives, or just enjoy the leisurely pace of life in this part of the world. Now this can all be yours.

This 500 year old farmhouse, built on Etruscan foundations, is located in a secluded valley in the foothills of the famous medieval walled city of San Gimignano.

The Villa offers comfortable accommodation for up to 17 guests with a choice of five stunning self-catering rustic cottages or apartments, sleeping between two and five in each.

Each cottage or apartment has its own loggia or terrace, from which guests can relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

Facilities at the Villa include a magnificent Roman bath house-style heated indoor pool, as well as a sauna, solarium and fitness suite – although you’re more likely to be enjoying the breathtaking views from the sun deck than worrying about the treadmill.

About San Gimignano

The city was designated a world cultural heritage site by UNESCO. Climb one of the 14 remaining medieval towers, visit pilgrim resting spots and St Fina’s Chapel in the Duomo – famous for its fifteenth-century Ghirlandaio frescoes and the altar by Benedetto de Maiano.
