Villa Gambassi is a large and surprisingly affordable Italian villa rental located at a 12 o’clock position between Volterra and San Gimignano in Tuscany. I say “surprisingly affordable” because of the value: the rental is large, spacious and of a high quality while the price has remained low over the years I have rented it. You get a lot for the price. Located on an enormous park-like property near Gambassi Terme, Villa Gambassi was designed and built by a man whose life started in a monastery, and ended in wealth and success. When he sought to build his own house he looked back for the inspiration of his youth: Villa Gambassi.
Perfect For Weddings Too
This charming estate is perfect for those wanting to escape the hustle of the Firenze - Siena corridor, yet be in the middle of some great touring. On a farm-like setting with horses, tall Cypress trees and a park lie setting, Villa Gambassi is your next stop for a life time of memories, and some great meals on the lovely al freco areas. A large party? The perfect wedding location? Got that covered too.
There are two parts to Villa Gambassi - the villa and the stone house. Villa Gambassi consists of two houses: One is the original villa where most of your party will spend their idle time together (and sleeps 4 people) and the other house is an ancient stone house that has most of the sleeping quarters. Between the two is the pool. Regardless of the number in your party, 12 or more, Villa Gambassi is rented to only one party at at time.
The Main Villa sleeps 4 + 2 (sofa bed in the study). 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms en suite.
The ground floor consists of an entrance way that opens out to a large gallery (loggia), a very spacious living room with fireplace and a large dining room with fireplace, bathroom, a large and rather long kitchen, fireplace and a store-room. There is also a kitchen/dining room equipped with 6 burners-gas stove, fireplace, two refrigerators (one is an antique and to be used only for cheese and meat - the other in the storage room is a classic cold American style), one deep freeze (with ice maker) and all the pots and pans, cooking utensils and dishes enough for all the people staying in the villa.
2 double bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms, a study (which has the ability to sleep 2 on a double sofa bed) and a terrace in Pienza travertine.
