Vecchio Fienile Casa Vacanze
Reviewed 30 June 2013

This is a home from home with views to die for. A fantastic location not far from "Most of the have to see" Towns and vineyards in this part of Tuscany. Our villa had everything you needed for a very comfortable stay with one of the best kept pools in the most tranquil gardens we have come across, a very memorable holiday.

Room Tip: The apartment Bracciante is the closets to the pool with views from the main bedroom of the towers i...

I'm amazed there are only 2 reviews for Vecchio Fienile, I can only presume that having found such a wonderful place, noone wants to share it with you.

We are just back after a wonderful 2 weeks. This was our 5th time there (& yes we're hoping to make it No. 6 next year), 2 other couples had been there before and had come back again as well, so I think that says it all.

The location is perfect, San Gim. is 12 miles up the road, it's almost slap bang in the middle between Florence & Sienna (20 miles or so either way) and Sant'Appiano with it's gorgeous restaurant within walking distance & Poggibonsi (with its wonderful supermarkets) 3 miles away.

I wish there was an award for cleanest, best kept pool in Italy because I feel Vecchio Fienile should win, their pool gets as much attention as a new born baby and is an absolute delight. The property is owned & managed by the meticulous Sr. Maurizio Tordini and ably assisted by his lovely daughter Ilaria, they are wonderful at making sure you have the best holiday experience ever, extremely friendly with always great advice about the area & anything else you want to know.

Facilities really are excellent at Vecchio Fienile, the houses & laundry are immaculate (I'm a meticulous dust finder & they give me a run for my money :-)

My favourite holiday moment at Vecchio Fienile is standing with a chilled prosecco in hand at the beautifully made BBQ area, fresh seafood sizzling on the grill, looking out at a spectacular Tuscan sunset & the lights of Poggibonsi twinkling below.

Holidays don't get any better than Vecchio Fienile & that's why (crossing fingers) I hope to be back next year for a 6th time.

Ciao Vecchio Fienile, a presto!

We stayed here for 1 week in early june and have already asked the owners for a provisional booking next year.
Villa= spacious 2 bed 2 bthroom clean comfortable and well equipped.
Grounds= relaxing, spacious , lovely pool, flowers and enjoyed tranquil evenings watching the sun set and listening to the owls hooting.We were blessed with ideal weather, very warm sunny and a little cloud cover, perfect for sight seeing.
Location=this really was excellent with a good local supermarket providing great produce in Poggibonsi. The beautiful San Gimignano could be seen in the distance from the bedroom window, this was a wonderful place to visit and only approx 25 mins away.Sienna was also easily accessible in addition to Volterra. we liked Sienna but really loved Volterra and best of all SanGimignano.
Thanks Moritzio, we hope to return next year !!

but a little cloud cover at times



perfect for sight seeing.
