3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6
The house forms part of the oldest wing of Le Bagnaie, a 300 year old farm on a secluded hilltop, which was converted into 8 privately owned houses in 1990. All are beautifully restored in traditional rustic style with exposed beams, old terracotta floors and open fires, together with the modern convenience of superb marble bathrooms and central heating. Each house has its own paved terrace, garden and the shared facility of beautiful grounds, including a magnificent swimming pool, a children's pool, an all-weather tennis court and boules court. There are outstanding views of the surrounding countryside.
There is a large sitting room with fireplace and a door opening onto the terrace and garden, where there is also a stone built barbecue. An archway with double doors leads through to the fully equipped kitchen/dining room with elegant marble worktops, and a back door leads from here into a small courtyard. On the first floor is a cool lofty double bedroom with bathroom en-suite, a twin bedroom and a magnificent marbled bathroom with separate shower. Private stairs lead from the landing up to the second floor twin bedroom with panoramic views all round and a small en-suite shower room with WC. The house is traditionally furnished and is equipped to a high standard.

The unit shares a large property with six other units. But, it is set up so that you are not aware that anyone else is there. (But, we did spend some pleasant time with our "neighbors".) It sits up on a hill top with stunning views. Not right in town but still conveniently located. The unit is very spacious, very comfortable and well-equipped. We had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again.
Beautiful property in a fairytale location

The house is wonderful and in perfect shape. Around are only hills and vineyards: a breathtaking landscape. We enjoyed the garden and the big swimming pool very much. We could pick our own vegetables (which were super fresh and delicious) from the garden and we were even invited to a winetasting by Ian, one of our lovely neighbours, who owns a small vinyard. Finally, the house is perfectly located, close to Florence and all the main places of interests, such as Siena and San Gimignano. A fantastic vacation! P.S.: if you go, make sure to book Serena to cook you dinner for a night. One of the best Italian meals I have ever eaten. And I am Italian!
Tuscan Top Spot
By Trevor C on 26-Sep-2017
Great location, superb views, central position for travel to anywhere in Tuscany. Good food, some great restaurants and of course 'The Place' to sample the local wines.
Beautiful spot with fantastic amenities

The property is in an idyllic location. It has a lovely garden to relax in and the swimming pool and tennis court are a real plus. It is well positioned for restaurants and sight seeing (a short drive away) but in a peaceful and rural location with amazing views.
The house is well maintained and has everything you might need.
A very relaxing place to stay.
A great place to relax and explore Tuscany
By Grant T on 06-Aug-2017
My family and I spent one week at the property and we all had a great time. We relaxed on some days in the lovely garden and in the huge pool, which the kids enjoyed very much. On other days we travelled to nearby historic towns and local vineyards, making use of the property's ideal location! The regional food was of course great, but even better was the meal cooked for us in house.
We found the property charming, with stunning views, and the amenities generally very good. There is also a community garden which helped us out on occasion.
A little piece of heaven on earth
By Peter P on 31-Jul-2017
We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany. Mainly sightseeing but also some shopping and wine tasting. Best was being able to relax in the confines of Le Bagnaie, this small hilltop complex of 8 villas is a couple of Kms off the main road in more or less perfect isolation. Pool was fantastic - a great size and only a handful of fellow residents in sight. Also, good tennis court and boules.
We made use of a local contact for a full blown Tuscan dining evening and would thoroughly recommend that to anyone.
The villa/farmhouse was clean, tidy and friendly with all the essentials. Some may see it as a problem that there is no TV - not in our case. My personal lizard count was above 30 and the wandering cat just added a lovely slice of something to the experience.
Its Tuscany in July so you have to expect mosquitos and other bitey things so be prepared for that. My only criticism, and its a personal thing I guess, is that the beds were quite hard.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We have noted your comment about the beds and have since bought a mattress topper for the double bed in the master bedroom which will hopefully soften this new mattress.

I was traveling with my wife and young adult children. Le Bagnaie was a fantastic location, one that you return to.
We rented a car at the Rome airport and had no trouble with the detailed directions provided by the owners. The villa is on a hill reachable by gravel road, which appears to be common in the area.
We made day trips to many places, including Florence, Siena, San Gimigniano, and Cortona. We also spent most late afternoons by the pool in an ideal if setting. The villa itself was extremely comfortable with a well stocked kitchen. We did have Serena, a local, prepare a Tuscan meal for us one night. It was the best meal of our two week trip to Italy.
Loved every moment!

Absolutely beautiful! This is one place you should not miss! Perfect location to totally relax or to explore Tuscany! We are already planning next year's visit!
The happiest place on earth!
By Elizabeth H on 30-May-2017
Our family of 4 had the most sensational stay in Casa del Fico at Le Bagnaie. The house and grounds are in a great location - close to many quaint towns, restaurants and wineries, as well as a short distance away from major destinations like Florence, Siena and San Gimignano. The house itself was very comfortable and charming. We spent almost all our time outside in the private English-like garden. We especially loved sitting in the garden each morning with our coffee and breakfast. One of our favorite nights over our two week trip was having Serena cook for us at the house. Her food was out of this world delicious! One of our very favorite meals. You mustn't miss out on having her. We plan to be back and bring all our friends! Thanks to the Tisdales for hosting us!
Amazing Tuscan setting! Unparalleled views, beautiful patio and garden area!
By Carol E on 16-Oct-2016
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The best location to enjoy the sites around Tuscany or to just relax and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio! Home is quite comfortable - great for families. Pool setting (with children's pool), swings, and "community" vegetable garden add to the fun.
Perfect place for stay in Chianti
By Eva K on 11-Sep-2016
The house and the amenities were even better than we would have expected. The view is breathtaking and the house is well equipped. There are many good wineries in the area where you can taste ( and of course buy) excellent Chianti wine.
It is a good starting point for sightseeing tours to Siena, San Gimigniano and Florence. The pool is also very nice and the perfect place to relax. Although you have to use a gravel road to reach the house, the next supermarket is only 10 minutes away.
One tip: it is possible to hire a local cook. She prepares a fantastic original Tuscany meal.
We can highly recommend this house !
