Ever since I was born I’ve had this 13th century parish church in front of me. It has always been my dream to open it to everybody to make the people feel its mystic aura that emanates from the walls.
When Alessandra and I could start the renovation works in 1999 to transform the building into four independent apartments we were very happy.
Today our guests tell us that it’s really possible for those who stay at the Pieve di San Martino to breathe deeply the “air of the past” and we believe that it’s true.
The whole holiday accommodation is framed by an extremely well-kept garden with swimming pool (14 x 7 m). Those who are keen on sport, right underneath the pool, there is a sport field to play soccer or many other kinds of sport. The guests are free to use the barbeque for tasty, open-air grills. The Pineschi family produces chianti wine and extra vergin olive oil that can be purchased directly at the accommodation.
The incomparable Tuscan landscape, the lush green of the spring, the sun and the golden light of the summer are the setting of this place. We continue to welcome our guests personally and try to make them spend an unforgettable holiday.

Pool 7mx14 open from May 1st until October 15th
