About Villa Francigena

With its spectacular panoramas across rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves, the Villa Francigena is a desirable villa in Tuscany. This carefully restored farmhouse is simply bursting with rustic charm and luxurious pleasures. Positioned in the hamlet of Sornano, it’s in easy driving distance of historic San Gimignano and the wider Chianti region.


Understated elegance runs through Villa Francigena like a seam of gold. From the magnificent open plan living room and formal dining room to the country-style kitchen. Outside, there is a delightful shaded terrace and an al fresco lounge perfect for sundowners overlooking the swimming pool.


There is an en suite double bedroom on the ground floor, opening out to the garden. A further four bedrooms can be found on the first floor, with one serving as a family suite.


You can enjoy outdoor living at its finest at this alluring Tuscan villa. Admire the idyllic views from a swinging chair, taste wines at world-class vineyards, and feast outdoors on the fresh local produce from the local Tuscan markets. But be warned: it’s rather easy to develop a taste for Tuscan living.
