Eco-house on Tuscan olive farm

Brand new independent eco-house in rural setting, away from the crowds between Florence and Siena. This is an annex building on a family run olive farm surrounded by unspoilt Tuscan countryside. There are two other rental apartments and a shared swimming pool. This is a place where nature rules, a place of peace and calm where the views, sunsets, birds of prey and fireflies do the talking...
It is quiet and idyllic - ideal for anyone seeking a total getaway.

The eco-house was built in 2019 with 100% sustainable materials. It is independent from the main farmhouse and enjoys a large private patio with outdoor sitting/ dining area.
The open plan interior with high beamed ceiling and parquet flooring is spacious, light and airy with a minimalistic modern design .
There is a low double bed (160x200 cm), a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with wc, basin, bidet and walk-in shower, a reading area and desk/laptop table.
The annex is equipped with heat pump/air conditioning and mosquito nets on every window.

I live in part of the house with my wife, Sarah, and two children (aged 17 and 15). We will be here to greet you on arrival and to help out with any questions and local tips. As much as we enjoy meeting people from all over the world we are also very discreet and totally respect our guests' privacy.

This is rural Tuscany away from the tourist hubs - although within easy reach of them all (40 mins from Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra, 1 hr from Florence and the coast).
The surrounding hill-top villages offer fantastic views, cobbled streets and alley ways, beautiful old churches, a taste of local life and good restaurants. There is a restaurant in Monteguidi, 5 minutes from Timignano.
Just behind the house lie the extensive forests of Berignone, one of Tuscany’s largest protected areas. Its numerous paths provide endless possibilities for hiking, cycling and swimming in parts of the beautiful Cecina river - as well as wildlife spotting.

Our apartments are regularly sanitised in compliance with the latest European Covid-19 directive.

Each apartment is self-contained with a private outdoor sitting area, and there is a distance of 15-30m between the apartment entrances.

The farmhouse is surrounded by plenty of green space, garden and woodland.

At the swimming pool there are 3 separate decking areas with sun loungers, spaced at least 3m apart. The pool water is treated daily with chlorine-based products.

Fabio and Sarah, We had a fantastic stay at Timignano and want to thank you again for your warm reception. For other viewers of this site, here are some additional remarks about your farmhouse: Timignano is a magical place. Perched among undulating emerald hills, it offers breathtaking views in many directions, including sunrise and sunset. The apartment is well furnished and comfortable, but more than that, it is full of character with arched windows, artful masonry and a cozy wood stove for cool nights. The terrace is completely private and spacious with room for dinner parties overlooking the sprawling countryside. Probably the most appealing aspect of Timignano however was the lovely family who hosted us, attending to our needs and filling us in on local lore and traditions. On many days we lingered at Timignano enjoying the surroundings; on others we made day trips to world class destinations such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Volterra, and Lucca. We can't recommend this remarkable place enough, and will cherish our memory of our days spent there. David and Susan Excellent David Pare 4/20/2014 12:25:00 AM
Podere Timignano is a tranquil and beautiful Tuscan setting with unobstructed views of a forested valley. The rustic and charming farmhouse is well-equipped, comfortable and private. This is a great place to enjoy with your family. Sarah and Fabio are attentive and thoughtful hosts, willing to answer your questions and offer suggestions about the area. Their children Zoe and Jack are an absolute delight. My wife and I enjoyed our stay immensely. Excellent George Klessinger 6/27/2013 10:46:00 AM
