Agriturismo La Vernaccia is located 800 mt far from the historical centre of San Gimignano, in the heart of the Tuscan hilly countryside. It offers high-standard accommodations in the magic atmosphere of a long-lasting tradition. The lovely villa is surrounded by the vineyards and the olive groves of the estate and is immersed in a huge garden towered by a medieval tower. All around there are a few ancient buildings, originally farmers’ homes that have been carefully restored and now divided into five comfortable apartments.
In the peace and the tranquillity of this idyllic place, guests can spend lazy holiday hours on the swimming pool sun terrace, or taste the local wines and extra-virgin olive oil.
Tasty breakfasts and delicious typical dinners are available even for those guests who have chosen self-catering accommodation in one of our apartments. In wintertime meals are served in the old barn while in the summertime in the paved barnyard terrace, under the stars.
The apartment ORCIO is one of the five apartments available at Agriturismo La Vernaccia.
Originally the precious estate extra-virgin olive oil used to be stored here.
This ground-floor apartment has its own independent entrance from the private terrace and consists of a living room with a comfortable sofa bed, a kitchen area, and one double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. It has wooden floors, heating, natural conditioning, and satellite TV.
