We stayed in the studio apartment at Timignano for over a week, and enjoyed every minute of it - it was hard to leave this beautiful place to go sight-seeing. The views over the valleys is fantastic, the setting is wonderful, and the apartment has everything needed for a short stay. Besides the main house there is another larger apartment;...

We had an excellent stay at Podere Timignano. We are a family including 2 young kids (2 and 5 yrs old). Fabio and his family were helpful, the accomodation is very neat and restored with care. We enjoyed the nature around (saw wild boare, houter etc.. went for a walk in the forest of berignone). While Timignano is away of...

My wife, not quite 2 year old daughter and I spent a happy and relaxed week at Podere Timignano. The house is perched on the edge of a hill overlooking a valley. And the patio is perfectly placed to watch the spectacular sunsets (they really are up there). Though on the edge of a hill the grounds are relatively level...

Podere Timignano is a very great and fine property for relaxing and forget the hectic and busy daily routine! We stayed there for two weeks in September 2013. Fabio and Sarah are very nice and helpful hosts. The location is very stilish (tuscany like), clean and has all the necessary things we need for a relaxing stay. Don't be surprised...

Property and hosts very accommodating, excellent views across the countryside and reasonable access to Siena, Volterra. Some good restaurants nearby in local villages. Be prepared for insects in the summer, lovely pool. Walking is possible but if possible take a good map and GPS as walks are not waymarked and can be confusing. Be prepared for the €25 cleaning charge...

We stayed at Podere Timignano for 2 weeks in July 2013, and that was the most relaxing holiday we ever had. Fabio and Sarah were perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful. Situated very calmly you have stunning views, even from inside the pool. We can only agree with the two recent reviews. If you are very sensible, take a mosquito...

We stayed for one week (August 2013) in Podere Timignano near the place Montguidi in Toscane. The house is very beautiful situated and has a big pool with a spectacularly view. Because the house is situated about 4,5 km away from the paved road, it is out-of-the-way, but by that it is a very quiet place with a lot of...

Thank you for your very positive review. We really appreciate it and are happy to know that you've enjoyed it. Just a small correction: Timignano is 1.8 km and not 4.5 km from the paved road (about 5 minutes' drive). Thanks again for your time.

The setting of this property is beautiful, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, with multiple amazing views. The owners are an English/Italian couple. They are also wine and olive oil producers so ask for a tasting session! They live on site and are available as needed for advice about activities and sightseeing. The property is comfortable and has the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away along a country road between Siena and Volterra sits Podere Timignano, a wonderfully characteristic farmhouse perched on a hill and surrounded by 7 hectares of fields, woodland and panoramic views. The house has been restored with great care over the years using many ancient stone works from local churches and ruins. Divided into three - two apartments for rent and the rest home to the owners - each carefully designed to ensure privacy with separate entrances and independent eating areas outside. There is plenty of outdoor space and garden bursting with flowers and herbs. With 360 degree views Timignano has the rare fortune to enjoy both exhilarating sunrise and spectacular sunsets. An oval swimming pool (10 x 6.5 M), paved with local stone, is hidden at the end of a wooded path behind the house. Timignano is mainly powered by a wood-burning furnace, photovoltaic and thermal solar panels, keeping its environmental impact to a minimum. For those who enjoy cooking both apartments have well -equipped kitchens. There is a wide selection of fresh herbs around the garden and we produce organic vegetables. For hassle-free meals we can offer you a selection of delicious home-made pasta sauces. The owners, Fabio and Sarah, live on site with their two children, Zoe and Jack (aged 12 and 10). We are here to greet our guests on arrival but respect their privacy during their stay. We will obviously help out with any queries or problems should they arise. Timignano and its surroundings have something to offer for everyone, and for this reason it makes is an ideal holiday base for families with young or older children, couples or a group of friends. This is a perfect place for relaxing - on the private terrace, in the shaded garden area or by the pool. There are several paths leading directly from Timignano for country walks. The surrounding hill-top villages offer fantastic views, cobbled streets and alley ways, beautiful old churches, a taste of local life and good restaurants. There is a restaurant within 5 minutes from Timignano and many others a 10-15 minute drive away. Just behind the house lie the extensive forests of Berignone, one of Tuscany's largest protected areas which stretch as far as the coast. Its numerous marked paths provide endless possibilities for hiking and cycling - as well as wildlife spotting. Further afield, but still within a 40 minute drive, are three of the major Tuscan historical and architectural hot-spots - Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. Florence is an hour away, the beautiful Tuscan coast just over an hour. Plenty of other smaller and lesser known cultural, artistic, gastronomic and natural gems are all within easy reach. ... more   less
