Having been to Tuscany once and before I was very excited to return as we had been longing to do so since our last time in 2008. This property is part of a group of 13 apartments spread over 3 stunning authentic Tuscan farm houses. We had apartment 3. All the apartments are different shapes and sizes.
The property is located half way between San Gimignano and Voltera with both Pisa and Florence 1 hour away.
The property is about 3km off the main road down a white road which is certainly in bad condition in places so i would advise a larger engined car or 4x4 but having said that I drove it twice a day in my rented Fiat 500 and apart from bouncing around I managed just fine.
Once you come to the top of the hill at Poderre torrichi (another property on the white road) you see Collinella in the distance and you know you have made the right choice. The scenery is like nothing I hae ever seen before. it is a true tuscan landscape.
The apartment itself is ground floor and comprises of a kitchen/living room, bedroom and bathroom. Everything you need is here including a full kitchen and a washing machine. The living room has outside areas off both sides so you can have the sun in private both morning and evening and also watch the sun go down. We loved to BBQ and eat outside at the excellent outdoor furniture.
The place is incredibly peacefull. the only thing you can hear are cow bells from the surrounding fields. There is a communal pool for all apartments but in the week we were there there was never anymore than 7-8 people at the pool and mostly just ourselves. Each apartmet has their own numbered sun loungers so no confusion. We met some of the owners of the other apartments and they were all lovely and very welcoming.
Can I also say that all our dealings and correspondence with the owner of apt 3 was very informative and efficient.
There are lots of local restaurants within a 10 minute drive and we did try one of these for takeaway pizza. We also ate out in San Gimignano which was excellent. It and Volterra are truely beautiful places.

All in all I can't say one bad thing about this place. My only regret is I feel we spent too much time driving to other towns to sight see instead of just wandering the local area or siting at the pool with a beer or Chianti!
