You walk into the beautifully kept terraced garden of San Leolino, one of the four houses that make up the tiny hamlet of Casaglia, and you are faced with one of the most beautiful views of Tuscany. You just cannot resist feasting your eyes on the rolling hills, on the many farmhouses with beautifully kept vineyards and olive groves that lay in front of you. The medieval city of San Gimignano with its towers sits as a back drop to the large infinity-edge swimming pool. To ensure the enjoyment of the views the owners who converted the old farmhouse into a very comfortable home with a shaded loggia for dining alfresco and an outside lounge with a large umbrella ideal for relaxing after dinner soaking in the unspoilt views. The interior of the house has the typical Tuscan terracotta floors and beamed ceilings with modern bathrooms and air-conditioned bedrooms. The main kitchen is on the first floor, in keep with Tuscan traditions with a bar/breakfast kitchen area on the ground floor. San Leolino has a great location from which to visit most of Tuscany as its half way between Florence and Siena with one of the most beautiful towns in Europe, San Gimignano just minutes away.
