Fall in love with Casa Quintino

We are exactly in the center of the Renaissance cultural triangle - one hour equidistant from Pisa, Florence and Siena. To the east, we are a one hour drive to the long sandy beaches of the Etruscan coast, the gateway to the islands of Elba and Giglio. Volterra and San Gimignano, the most admired hill top town in Italy are only 25 minutes away. Our nearest village is Gambassi Terme, in the Parco Benessere (Wellbeing Park), and is called the Commune of the Via Francigena, the ancient pilgrim route to the Holy Land.

Our home, Casa Quintino is a lovingly restored old farmhouse originally built over 300 years ago on the site of a hermitage. It is not a 'Tourist Villa' but a simple unpretenious Refugio, appealling
most to nature lovers who are seeking a break from urban life, with the deep tranquility of unspoiled countryside. It is a haven of peace, with no made made sounds or sights.
