Villa Le Spighe – San Giovanni d’Asso - Tuscany
5 Bedrooms - Pool
Villa Le Spighe was an old farmhouse that was lovingly restored in 2005. Located just a short walk into the quaint town of San Giovanni d’Asso with its wonderful truffle museum! This large house is a composition of two apartments, each with its own private entrance. Each apartment has its own kitchen and living room and they communicate in two points; one door is located on the first floor and the second one on the ground floor rendering the house ideal for two groups travelling together to be together while also having some privacy.
The entire farmhouse can be rented to a total of 10 people or partially to 6 people (3 BDR APT).
If only one apartment is rented, the other part will be closed and not rented to anyone else to ensure complete privacy to the guests in house.

How did you enjoy your ISV experience; actual accommodations, amenities and services
The villa was everything we had hoped for in Tuscany. The quality and location were perfect. Frederica was extremely cordial and gracious to meet us and show us around. The house was just as represented. We enjoyed the pool and loggia many times. San Giovanni d’Asso proved to be a great central location for our side trips to Montalcino and Montepulciano. We really loved Pienza. The chefs showed up on time and well prepared to provide dinners for us. While not outstanding meals, the food was good and each of the chefs was friendly. They did a great job of cleaning up as well.
