San Gimignano villas - visualize your vacation in a unique Italian town!

San Gimignano is an historic town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, that is well-loved by Italians and international visitors alike.

This walled medieval stronghold elicits gasps of awe as it comes into view, due to its impressive stone towers left from its days of being a wartime lookout for approaching enemies. These towers are the inspiration for the design of the University of Essex, and are models for parts of Yale University's architecture.

A San Gimignano villa inspires the creative soul in each visitor.  Those that have an eye for literary and cinematic lore can stroll the cobblestones in the Piazza del Duomo and recreate the scenes from the movie Tea with Mussolini , or envision the intrigue from John Grisham's novel The Broker that featured a nearby villa rental. The history expert will revel in the town's long stretch back into time. It was originally founded by the Etruscans in the 3rd century BC, and its journey through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance can be traced by the variety of styles in the Collegiata and the Sant'Agostino churches, and with the numerous works of famed Italian artists that decorate the Communal Palace.

The wine lover is not to be left out, but will be delighted to taste the area's famed white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Feel as if you are a local Italian by visiting the Thursday fresh market in the Piazza della Cisterna, where you can taste the fresh vegetables, cheese, and fruits of the region. Here, you can gather ingredients for a delicious home-cooked Italian meal of hearty pasta and tender meat in your own villa kitchen.
