Stay in a beautifully restored historic borgo for up to 47 guests, a short drive from magical San Gimignano and within easy reach of both Siena and Florence.

The hospitable Bandini family purchased this hamlet at the end of the twentieth century and have taken many years restoring it with great care and attention. Offering a totally unique holiday experience, or perhaps an enchanting place for a dream Tuscan wedding, each of the apartments has been lovingly furnished with character and charm and are now used for their original purpose as a working farm and guest house.

Available to be exclusively hired, each apartment has its own private entrance and terrace and there’s a glorious swimming pool with idyllic views of the undulating hills and Tuscan landscapes. Children will adore the play area and football field, whilst parents will appreciate having a restaurant on-site offering mouth-watering evening meals serving authentic Tuscan fare. The bar is also a lovely touch, the perfect place to relax with a glass of chilled Vernaccia from the vineyards of nearby San Gimignano.

Wine-tastings, horse-riding, tennis lessons and guided tours can be arranged by the hospitable owners who frequently visit to help in any way they can. There’s a true Tuscan ambience throughout this beautiful setting with its 9th century church and traditional surroundings.

Charming Colle Val D’Elsa is a short drive away with its restaurants and pretty shops or drive a little further to discover some of the classic Chianti villages within half an hour. The famous towers of San Gimignano are also close by, one of Tuscany’s most famous and charming villages where you can explore the narrow winding lanes and admire the incredible historic architecture.

Florence and Siena are also waiting to be explored, both within easy reach, or head even further south to the exquisite southern Tuscan towns of Montepulciano and Cortona. Whether you are in the magnificent Tuscan countryside you can be sure of incredible cuisine, fine local wines and wonderfully diverse landscapes of hills, woodland, pretty villages and historic towns.

Lorenzo Village is a beautiful old borgo/hamlet which has been converted into apartments. The setting is perfect in the heart of Tuscany between Siena and Florence, allowing guests to be able to visit some of Tuscany’s most idyllic villages, historic towns and wonderful cities and countryside.

The borgo itself has a fascinating history dating back to around 553 AD and treasures that were found when excavating the hamlet last century can be seen in the Museo Civico e Diocesano d’Arte sacra near Colle Val D’Elsa, just 6km away. You can also visit the 9th century church in the hamlet with its frescos on the altar. In medieval times the borgo was a place of hospitality on the pilgrimage route for travellers to Rome; nowadays guests are equally well looked after in the delightful Lorenzo village.

Both Tuscan towns of Poggibonsi and charming Colle di Val d’Elsa are around a ten-minute drive away where you will find a variety of good local restaurants, supermarkets and lovely shops. You’re also conveniently near the Autostradale Firenze-Siena, meaning Siena (28km) is just half an hour away by car and Florence (48km) can be reached in around 45 minutes. One other option is to drive to Poggibonsi (4km) and pick up a train to either city for a fantastic day out.

The enchanting village of San Gimignano (15km) is also close by, a glorious medieval town with its many towers and is famous for its historic beauty. The village also has a fine reputation for its food and wine – look out for pretty shops selling local saffron and also the famous Vernaccia white wine of this region.

Of course you are surrounding by magical Tuscan landscapes of rolling hills, cypress trees, olive groves and vineyards. You can visit some of the classic Chianti wine villages within half an hour such as Castellina in Chianti (19km) and Radda in Chianti (30km) or drive just over an hour south to the glorious countryside around the famous towns of Montepulciano (88km) and Cortona (99km).

This area also offers outstanding walking and cycling routes, mountain biking opportunities, horse-riding and even tennis lessons within a short distance.
