Az. Agr. Il Melograno

The “Azienda agrituristica IL MELOGRANO” is set in the territory of San Gimignano, seven km. faraway from the town, on the ancient itinerary of the Via Francigena, 160 metres on the sea level. The house was built on the XIXth century and in 1998 it was carefully restored to keep its original architecture. On a hill, it offers a delightful view on the Val d’Elsa and Certaldo, a town 3 km. faraway. The landscape all around is the green Tuscan countryside with its gentle hills covered with vines and olive trees which invite visitors to enjoy trips in the surrounding area and taste the typical Tuscan dishes accompanied with Chianti and Vernaccia, the white wine from San Gimignano.
