Podere San Carlo is a gorgeous famrhouse set on a hilltop overlooking Chianti's rolling hills, vineyards and fields. A sunny, airy house, it was idea for our Tuscan holiday! A great kitchen led to outdoor dining under a loggia -- a "must" for Tuscany! A beautiful swimming pool is set below the house in a pretty garden, with a tiled terrace for lounging in the (very bright) sun. The house was easy driving to most of the key sites in Tuscany, in particular Florence and Sienna.

We found the villa through Tuscany Now -- a British-based agency specializing in private villa rentals in Italy. Check out TuscanyNow.com

Unique Qualities: A beautiful house with rustic decor! A large swimming pool set in a lovely garden. Outdoor dining under the loggia, set off the kitchen. Easy driving to Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano and even Pisa.!
