Tucked away along a country road between Siena and Volterra sits Podere Timignano, a wonderfully characteristic farmhouse perched on a hill and surrounded by 7 hectares of fields, woodland and panoramic views . The house has been restored with great care over the years using many ancient stone works from churches and ruins.
An oval swimming pool (10 x 6.5 m), paved with local stone, is hidden at the end of a wooded path behind the house. This is shared only with the owners.
Timignano is mainly powered by photovoltaic and thermal solar panels, keeping its environmental impact to a minimum.

Timignano and its surroundings have something to offer for everyone, and for this reason it makes is an ideal holiday base for families with young or older children, couples or a group of friends.
This is a perfect place for relaxing - on the private terrace, in the shaded garden area or by the pool. There are several paths leading directly from Timignano for country walks. The medieval villages scattered around the surrounding hills offer fantastic views, cobbled streets and alley ways, beautiful old churches, a taste of local life and good restaurants. There are 2 restaurants within 5 minutes from Timignano.
The extensive forests to the west beyond the river Cecina are part of one of Tuscany’s largest protected areas, stretching as far as the coast. Its numerous marked paths provide endless possibilities for hiking and cycling - as well as wildlife spotting.
Further afield, but still within a 40 minute drive, are three of the Tuscan historic and architectural hot-spots – Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra. Florence is an hour away, the beautiful Tuscan coast just over an hour and there are also plenty of smaller and lesser known cultural, artistic, gastronomic and natural gems all within easy reach.
