Many thanks for your kind review. We have taken note of your comments and have improved the wifi coverage by adding a new router. We have also applied for permission to build a pool on the property in the next few months.

About the neighbourhood
San Donnino is a perfect starting point for visits to Tuscany's Unesco heritage sites and other nearby historic centres and market towns, and affords plenty of opportunities for discovering and enjoying the stunningly beautiful surrounding countryside. Distances: Florence (40 km), Siena (40 km), San Gimignano (18 km), Certaldo Alto, birthplace of Boccaccio (10 km) Volterra (48 km), Lucca (110 km), Pisa (82 km). The house dates back to the 17th century at least and some parts, such as the underground granary and stone foundations, may be mediaeval. Indeed, it is within the conservation area of Semifonte, the fortified city that was razed to the ground in 1202 by the Florentines. The village is home to a small but welcoming and cosmopolitan community.
Getting around
The nearest shops, banks, chemist, etc. are 5 km away at Barberino Val d'Elsa. Larger supermarkets and other facilities can be found at Tavarnelle val di Pesa (8 km), Certaldo (10 km) and Poggibonsi (13 km). There is a bus service from Barberino Val d'Elsa and regular trains from Certaldo, both serving Florence and Siena, Most guests therefore bring or rent a car, though some prefer to hire a private driver for transportation during their stay.
