If there's one thing I've always wanted to do, it's to spend a holiday in the countryside, in Tuscany. I love those atmospheres from "I dance alone" (a beautiful film by Bertolucci that I recommend you see if you haven't done it yet!), the Chianti hills, the sunsets over the vineyards, the ears of corn that ignite with the sunlight and the relaxing tranquility of the countryside. But Tuscany, like many other Italian regions, can really become a furnace in the summer and I would never give up a nice swimming pool. That's why I went in search of farmhouses with swimming pool most beautiful in Tuscany, oases of peace where you can take refuge away from the crowd of the beaches. And if you feel like a little sociality or culture ... you just need to travel a few kilometers and you can reach cities such as Florence, Pisa, Siena, Arezzo… And dozens of wonderful villages. Obviously, these farmhouses are fine even for just a weekend or to escape, during the day, from the heat of the Tuscan cities. 

10 beautiful farmhouses with swimming pool in Tuscany

1.Agriturismo Tra gli Ulivi- Chiappini (Bolgheri)

Let's start this review on farmhouses with swimming pool in Tuscany with this beautiful structure that it is located near Bolgheri, surrounded by the famous vineyards and olive trees, but also a few kilometers from the sea .. if you ever want to take a dip in the salt water! L'Farmhouse "Among the Olives" it consists of 6 independent apartments (named after local plants: Rosmarino, Giuggiolo, Melograno, Fico, Ginestra and Corbezzolo) and 6 rooms inside the farm (organic!), all furnished in the typical Tuscan style.

2.Castle of Modanella (Siena)

In this place I spent a wonderful weekend in July a few years ago and I would go back tomorrow !! More than agritourism, here we are talking about nothing less than an entire medieval village complete with a castle overlooking the Sienese hills. The apartments available to guests have been obtained from the old farmhouses, once used for agricultural purposes, and now perfectly restored. The houses are located all around the castle, within a radius of more or less a kilometer. Inside the castle are the restaurant and the various halls that they use for special events. In addition to the swimming pool, the estate also has tennis courts, 2 ponds for fishing and 400 hectares of wood for walking, horseback riding or mountain biking.

3.Agriturismo Humile (Chianciano Terme)  

L'Agriturismo Humile is located in Chianciano Terme, 10 km from Montepulciano, in an old eighteenth-century farm surrounded by the farmland. The suites, all of 50 square meters, are 3 (Lunaspicchio, Terratonda and Solevante) and have been renovated following the criteria of green building, using only natural materials, such as lime or travertine, the typical stone of these Tuscan lands. The furniture is simple, modern and well cared for. An excellent breakfast is also included in the stay and every morning guests can taste homemade cakes and pies with organic and genuine ingredients. A little gem!

4. Agriturismo Il Segreto di Pietrafitta (San Gimignano)

Among the farmhouses with swimming pool in Tuscany, this is certainly one of the most panoramic. The Il Segreto di Pietrafitta farmhouse it is in fact  3,5 km from S. Gimignano and it offers a breathtaking view on the towers of this beautiful Tuscan village and the surrounding countryside. The structure dates back to the 500th century and the 9 rooms are decorated in Tuscan style, with hand-made furniture and original sixteenth-century features, including beamed ceilings and terracotta floors. The breakfast served on the terrace is very good (as well as dinner!), But the real difference is made by the warm hospitality of Diego and Paolo.

7.La Pescaia Resort (Grosseto)

We remain on the class structures, but we go down towards the south of Tuscany, in Castiglione della Pescaia, near Grosseto. Immersed in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, the Resort La Pescaia is an elegant example of Nineteenth-century Villa-Farm, one of the few remaining in the area, with a past that refers to the family of Pia Tolomei. It is a paradise protected by over six thousand centuries-old olive trees, pristine woods and hidden paths, perfect for lovers of walking and horseback riding (activities that can be done on site). The structure has 10 rooms and 2 apartments, furnished in a simple but elegant way, a spectacular swimming pool obtained from the ancient "weir" basins and large gardens on which a centuries-old cedar stands. The Resort offers a relaxed atmosphere suspended in time, perfect for those who want to disconnect from the daily pressure without sacrificing comfort.

I could not fail to include it among the most beautiful farmhouses with swimming pool in Tuscany! The Santa Maria a Poneta farmhouse occupies a small village, born around a Romanesque church of the ninth century, and is located in a privileged position on the Chianti hills, a 5-minute drive from the medieval village of Barberino di Val d'Elsa and in front of San Gimignano.

10.Villa di Capovento (Chianti)

I close this review on the 10 most beautiful farmhouses with swimming pool in Tuscany with another structure that is also located in Chianti, near Castellina in Chianti (it is undeniable that it is one of the most beautiful areas in Tuscany). As the owners Ettore and Stella like to say, Villa di Capovento is a place where you can hear what silence sounds like, here you can hug the hills all around with your eyes and you really feel at peace. The villa is made of stone and the light is muffled by the raw linen curtains hand-woven by an artisan from the village. In the garden there is the swimming pool, in the countryside, and boundless spaces around it. Are you ready to abandon yourself to total relaxation?
