The Villino del Grillo and his views


Certainly San Gimignano, with its unmistakable towers, has the place of honor among what is seen from the outbuildings of Villino del Grillo .


Second, but not in order of beauty, it is the equally characteristic medieval village of Certaldo Alto, the birthplace of the poet Giovanni Boccaccio. From the photo, which was taken from our San Gimignano vernaccia vineyard, you can see the new town of Certaldo, about 3 km away from Villino del Grillo, where you can find numerous shops, bars, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants , swimming pool, railway station and other .


This beautiful view shows the former church of the Canonica, now the residence of ecclesiastical personnel, reachable on foot from Villino del Grillo in about 20 minutes, along a beautiful avenue of cypresses, ideal for doing physical activity among nature .


The Villino del Grillo is located on a hill about 200 meters above sea level and this allows you to both enjoy a beautiful view, and to have many advantages also from a climatic point of view. Summer days always enjoy a light breeze that makes it pleasant to be outdoors even on the hottest days, while in winter and autumn there is never a degree of excessive humidity .
