Description from manager

Vignola is a 16th century farmhouse nestled between woods and olive groves. It has been turned into a residence of refined charm that retains its atmosphere of informal welcome. The farmhouse has been meticulously restored and furnished with every comfort. There are 2 floors of living quarters and plenty of space both inside and out.

The large garden at Vignola, nestled in the woods and olive groves of the farm, is in perfect harmony with its surroundings.

Vignola’s splendid pool is located in the sunniest and most open spot of the property and it is the ideal place to relax in an atmosphere that is typically Tuscan.

The historical building is located on 2 levels. The first floor is accessible from external stairs via a loggia and also from internal stairs, and has a spacious reading room (originally the kitchen of the farmhouse), with a large and evocative fireplace. The original bedrooms now form the two junior suites, and the 2 double rooms were originally the "vinsantaia" (where vin santo grapes were dried) and the storerooms of the farm.

Going down the stairs, built to connect the two floors, we come to two beautiful suites (originally the stables), and a laundry and double bedroom (originally the old cellar). The big living room (originally the old hay loft) is furnished with modern sofas and lit by two large windows that capture the lovely garden outside.

Finally, the original old tool shed has today been converted into the bright and modern kitchen, with a wonderful arch connecting to a comfortable and spacious dining room. The dining room is cobbled with original roman paving stones, discovered during the restoration work.

At Vignola every room tells a story. The furnishings and decoration have been carefully chosen to give each one its own unique character. All the beds are superior king-size, with bedsteads of handcrafted metal. The traditional ceilings of brick and wood beams have been preserved and the floors are of wood planks. Antique sofas are covered in rich, luminous fabrics, and natural linens create a wonderful play of light in the warm Tuscan sun.

Each room has its own bathroom, with an intriguing blend of the old and the new, modern washbasins rest on 19th century stands and liberty-style lamps illuminate the floors of Etruscan clay tiles.

Perched on a hill and nestled between woods, olive groves and a splendid countryside, Vignola is only 500 metres, walking distance to the town of Sant’Albino di Montepulciano in the heart of southern Tuscany where a variety of shops are available, some of them are open also on Sunday morning.

It is an excellent location from which to explore all of central Italy. The village of Montepulciano is only five minutes away by car and the nearest exit from the highway is only 15 minutes away. Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Cortona, Orvieto, Arezzo, San Gimignano all are only an hour away by car. Even Florence and Rome can be easily reached by car or train.
