Title: Outstanding Villa in a beautiful Tuscan location
A truly delightful villa in a beautiful setting. We’ve recently returned from our second visit to Le Ginepraie and found it even more enchanting than the first time. Over the years we’ve stayed at some stunning places in Italy and France but Le Ginepraie stands way above all the rest. Put simply, it’s the only place we’ve wanted to visit again.
Set in rolling Tuscan countryside near the hamlet of Pignano, this is a holiday location for those who want to relax away from the world. Yet, for those who want a break from lounging by the pool, the major attractions of Siena and Florence are less than an hour away, with the hill towns of San Gimignano, Volterra and Monteriggioni being much closer.
The accommodation is faultless and elegantly decorated and furnished. We’re thinking of making our next visit in Spring, Autumn 2012 or Winter in order to make more use of the interior. Because in Summer, life is spent outside. We take our meals, apart from some poolside refreshment, in the loggia (including some of the preparation). There is a terrace for those who like to be in full sun. And cooking outside is possible with either the barbecue or wood-fired oven. The latter takes a bit to get used to but after a couple of attempts a fresh-made pizza is sublime.
But what makes Le Ginepraie extra special are the owners, Valerio and Paola. Their enthusiasm for life and the locale is infectious. They are unobtrusive, yet are there anytime for help and guidance (from ideas for walks to restaurant bookings). This adds another dimension to a wonderful destination.
I have no doubt that we will return.
Room tip: Rosso Fiorentino is the most elegant but all rooms are well decorated and furnished
