Le Colonne is a beautiful farmhouse on a small wine and olive oil producing estate, which has been recently restored and now forms three spacious apartments, one of which is the owner's second home, the other two No 8 San Matteo and No 9 San Giovanni which he rents. There are fantastic views from all sides of the house, with the towers of San Gimignano in front and the beautiful Elsa valley to the side. Just off the road from San Gimignano to Certaldo, the farmhouse is only 900m from the San Matteo gateway into medieval San Gimignano 'the city of towers' making it the perfect location for exploring the town's craft shops, historic monuments and famous piazzas. There are a selection of restaurants within walking distance and the nearest general food shop is only 500m away.

San Giovanni, aptly named after one of the ancient gateways to the town, is a luminous apartment on the first floor of Le Colonne farmhouse and has its entrance by outside staircase leading up from the garden. It enjoys spectacular views of the towers of San Gimignano from its living room front window, whilst the side window and the bedroom windows both look over the lovely Elsa valley dotted with vineyards and olive groves. The apartment is pleasantly furnished in country style, the new kitchen and satellite television provide the modern comforts whilst the addition of family heirlooms and some turn of the century pieces, carefully chosen by the owner, ensure the original character of the house is retained. It has its own garden area in the grounds which is furnished with table and chairs for dining outside or just relaxing whilst enjoying the view, and sipping a glass of San Gimignano's famous Vernaccia white wine, which the estate also produces. The lovely grounds which are immaculately maintained and full of plants and flowers, look towards the medieval towers of the town and beyond are surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. There are sun reclining chairs and a barbecue and parking is in the grounds next to the house.

There is a public swimming pool at Santa Lucia only 3km from the town and Castelfalfi and its international golf course and hill top open air swimming pool is less than half an hours drive. For those wishing to go further a field, the train and road links at Poggibonsi just 12km down the road make Tuscany's famous sights easily accessible.
