Our comfortable apartment for 4-6 persons, in San Gimignano, allows you to spend a vacation in absolute relax, in an enchanted natural context, far from the noise but at the same time very close to the most beautiful attractions of the world.

The space

The Montegonfoli Farmhouse is placed on top of an hill with an amazing view on San Giminano and on Tuscany hills. The farmouse is made of some ancient buildings of the Seventeen century, and it's featured by about 1000 olive trees, 2.6ha of vineyard (Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Chianti Colli Senesi, both DOCG), 5ha of "fields of gold" and 9ha of amazing forest featured by a small river for "in house" nice excursions and light trekking activities. The town of San Gimignano is very close, and Siena and Florence can be reached very quickly, as well as all the other attractions of Tuscany. Roma city center (Saint Peter church) is 2,5h from Montegonfoli. This apartment is on the first floor and can host up to 6 people (max 4 adults over 12yo). It has a large living room with kitchen, fireplace and sofabed, 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom with shower and bidet. It features a wonderful view on the surroundings and a private area in the garden.

Guest access

The farm is in the middle of a 23 hectares garden; the farmohouse is divided into 6 apartments and each one has a private area in the garden. The apartments share a nice 13x6m swimming pool with amazing view on San Giminano, a common barbecue area, a common laundry and to a large parking. The access to the garden is free and allows to make "in house" nice excursions to the forest and light trekking activities. Before making an excursion, please ask us about suggestions and warnings.

Interaction with guests

One of us will always be in the farm to assist you during your stay. If you like to speak and know more about italian food and lifestyle, we'd be happy to share our knowledge with you, but we will always leave space for you.

Other things to note

In July and August, for rules introduced by tour operators, we can accept reservations for a minimum of 4 nights, better if 7 and between Saturday to the next Saturday. If you can't stay for 4 nights, you may always ask, if we can, we would be happy to say "yes, we can" :-)
For stays of 7 or more nights, we use a different rate system, with a lower rate per night, but there may be extra fees for final cleaning, i.e. 10,00Euro per person over 12yo.
The San Gimignano Town introduced an accomodation tax of 1,50Euro per night per person over 12yo, for a max of 5 consecutive nights (max 7,50Euro per person), that you'd pay onsite.
During the early spring or on fall, we provide free heating when the indoor temperature requires for it, for two hours per day, one hour in the evening and one hour in the morning, between 7.30 to 8.30. In some apartments the free quota is based on real gas (GPL) used. When the guest makes the check IN, we'll show the gas counter and the first 1 cubic meter per day it will be free, the guest will pay the exceeding consumption only at the SRP (as of today, 2015, it is 4,50Euro per cubic meter). We provide free WIFI, with certified coverage in the lounge and common areas. Some house areas are already covered too, but some others will be reached in the 2015 winter.

House Rules
Not suitable for pets
Check in is anytime after 4PM
Check out by 10AM

Our house has few rules , beyond those suggested by common sense and good manners .

Although we love animals, currently pets are not allowed.
Smoking is allowed, but kindly ask our guests not to smoke indoors, and, in public areas, to respect children and pregnant ladies, also outside.

Many people come to our place to relax and enjoy the magical silence of our position, so we ask kindly to respect other guests, without generating too much noise and try not to monopolize the common areas (pool, barbecue area, laundry ).

Breakfast is not included, it can be requested at an additional cost of 5,00Euro per person (Italian, consisting of coffee, cappuccino, croissants) or you may simply order what you want. If our guests desire to have a continental breakfast, our neighbors, a few meters from us, are happy to offer it using organic products of their production, at a cost of 10,00Euros per person in their "Social" restaurant.
The WIFI is free and is provided in the social area and around the pool; in the winter of 2016 it should be extended to all of the apartments.
In autumn and spring, if the indoor temperature requires for it, the heating is provided free of charge for two hours a day. Extra heating, if requested by the guests, is charged per its real gas consumption.
The laundry is shared and is a small building that includes a washing machine and a quite large area for drying clothes. In order to avoid "crowding" the access is usually void to the guests who will stay one night only. The soap/powder is usually not provided, as well as the coal for the barbecue.
Note: Italian laws compel us to ask your documents at the check IN. Extra EU guests should show their passports, because ID cards or driving licences are not legal.

We were recommended to stay here after a friend of mine did last summer and it did not disappoint. We chose to stop here as part of our honeymoon and it provided two of the most memorable nights of our trip. The grounds and location are so breathtakingly beautiful. We also had dinner next door which is the experience of a lifetime in itself. Paolo and Bruno are so helpful when spending time in San Gimignano. We are so grateful for our stay here!

Beautiful property in a country setting with exceptional views. Never met Paulo, but Bruno the caretaker was exceptional - very friendly and hard working. This is one of several units on the property. Very clean. Bruno offers wine at night and espresso in the morning. The pool is beautiful. Great stay and would love to come back. Take care that you have correct instructions for address. The instructions we received in the email that you can "get directions" from (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps took us directly to the middle of town square in San Gimingnano. Also, no dryer as advertised, only a drying area to hang clothes. Not a big deal, but chose a place specifically for laundry as I had two loads to do and had to hang dry clothes that did not dry fully before we left. Minor inconvenience but site should be updated to fix both issues as mentioned. Overall, beautiful place and would definitely come again.

Response from Paolo:
Hello Phil, thank you very much for the wonderful review and the nice words for Bruno. I'm sorry that you lost some time to find our place, but I confirm that my suggestions are right; I will investigate about what happened with your email, maybe I made some mistake that I can't understand :-) About the laundry, I'm sorry, in the listing there are all the informations about the available services. This is the first time that there was such misunderstunding, but I will add "hanging" as you suggested to the currently "drying area" to help the community. We are very happy that you were here and we are even happier now to know that you will come back. Thank you so much, grazie mille, Paolo

The farmhouse from Paolo is a quiet nice place in in the vineyrds and between the olive trees. I stayed there with my husband and our two kids 6 and 9 years old for 10 days. The apartment is how you can see on the pictures and it is really enough space for four people. In the neighborhood do you have an agriturismo where you can go for a dinner or ride a horse…. We didtn`t meet Paolo, but we had Bruno as our contact person on site. He is really courteous and helpful and he always asks how it goes. I would say that you need time to enjoy the tranquility, the view and to relax. Alltogether did we have a nice time at Paolo´s place.

A wonderful place to stay for a family holiday. Beautiful setting in a great location. The pool was a great size and very clean and well maintained. The only mistake I made was not staying for 2 weeks. Booking, check-in and departing was all seamless. Lovely holiday and great place which I highly recommend.

Great location stunning views. We were unlucky to be in the hottest week of the century in Italy. In normal conditiond no airco needed, but under this conditions it wouldn't have been a luxury. Despite that great holiday very nice dinner at neighbour something to do!!!!!

Dear Airbnb Community,
thank you for reading my profile and considering to spend some of your time with me or my team in Montegonfoli :-) I'm a very social person, probably because I was born in the south of ltaly. I love to meet new people and new cultures and being an host allows me to discover several things and places while being in Italy. My daily job is into high tech, I'm one of the fathers of the world's most important video editing software ( and I'm editor for the leading italian high tech magazine ( At the same time I love old Italian lifestile, nature, countryside and San Gimignano, as well as sea and the other places where I grew up (Naples and Amalfi Coast). I love the good and healty food, as well as cooking it; I make my own bread, pizza and cookies using my self made natural yeast. I make olives (under salt or brine), dried figs, capers, egg plants and special liquors (just the ones that you can't find in a shop, but sorry, they are not for sale). If you're lucky, you could taste my famous "Pizza alle cipolle caramellate", "charamelized onions" :-)
My current fitness program consists in growing up 2 nice babies and 20Km per day by bicicle. I have several hobbies, probably too many, including "urban agricolture" of my time to make vegetables for me and my babies without using any chemicals.
I love photography and I made almost all the pictures of all the listings using a very old bridge camera; poor low light performances but great tele and macro.
My life motto is "BENISSIMO" and I love the people who smile :-), and I'm very happy to give and return as much smiles as possible :-)
Hope to meet all of you soon!

Sincerely,

Paolo
