All of its windows enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding countryside especially the window of the living room which looks out towards San Gimignano. The apartment has its own private garden terrace, enjoying a magnificent panorama, shaded by a pergola and furnished with table, chairs and sunloungers and there is a barbecue in the grounds close by. A path leads to the beautiful swimming pool (14m x 7m) which looks out across sunflower fields, vineyards and olive groves to the distant hills. The pool is furnished with sunbeds and sun umbrellas and there is a handy changing room with shower and w.c. La Fattoria ‘The Plateau Estate’ is a boutique family vineyard, composed of the owner’s manor house, with its own chapel, two traditional Tuscan farmhouses which have been restored to offer very comfortable apartments, and a panoramic swimming pool. During your stay you can make a tour of the cellar with free tasting wine. Our farmhouse has been divided into four apartments, three of which are rented (Nos 34 Vanda, 35 Gina, 36 Marina), all of which are most comfortably furnished in traditional Tuscan style. The farmhouse is surrounded by the estate's vineyards and olive groves and commands the most stunning views of the countryside, with the medieval hamlet of Montauto and the towers of the city of San Gimignano clearly visible over the valley. There is a utility room with washing machine for communal use, Wi Fi internet connection is available and parking is in the grounds of the estate close to the farmhouse. La Fattoria is only 4.5 kms from San Gimignano. Known as 'The City of Towers' it is a fascinating place to explore, with many craft shops, local art galleries, and historic monuments, as well as an excellent selection of restaurants. 15km away is the town of Poggibonsi which has road, rail and bus links to Florence and Siena making both of these towns easily accessible, and Volterra with its amphitheatre and interesting Etruscan museum is only 30 minutes drive away.
