    Rustic boutique B&B with swimming pool and vegan restaurant near San Gimignano, Tuscany

    Looking to leave all the hustle and bustle behind? And immerse yourself in the world of slow-living? Then Vegan Agrivilla I Pini is the perfect destination for you! This unique country house, nestled among the Tuscan hills and close to one of the most renowned Tuscan villages, San Gimignano, feels like something out of a fairy tale. Dating back to the sixteenth century, the country house has been lovingly renovated into the rustic bed & breakfast and agriturismo that it is today.

    Here, under the Tuscan sun, time stands still. And due to the intimate nature of the country house, consisting of eleven unique rooms, it feels as if you are a guest among good friends. The rooms can be divided into five different types: Elemento, Pergola, Torretta, Loggia, and Botanica, and they all look equally stunning. The rooms resemble a still life, simplistic yet with attention to the smallest details such as unique renovated vintage furniture and handmade bed linen. While one room offers direct access to the surrounding gardens, another treats you to a private balcony with a sensational view over the vineyards and olive trees. With old shutters, soft clay tones on the walls, terracotta tiles on the floors, and nature at your fingertips, you'll find yourself naturally slipping into relaxation mode in all the rooms.

    The art of slow living

    That happens to be precisely the aim of a stay at Vegan Agrivilla I Pini. Here, they truly go above and beyond to immerse you in the art of slow living. It all begins early in the morning when you sit down to enjoy the homegrown & organic breakfast featuring freshly baked sourdough bread and homemade jam. Everything here is handmade, free from sugar and refined grains. Ease into your day slowly, take a stroll through the fields, or explore one of the picturesque villages nearby where you can experience authentic Tuscan countryside life. Read a book, take a dip in the pool, daydream in one of the secluded corners of the garden, or savor a good glass of wine while watching the sun disappear behind the hills of San Gimignano.

    Vegan restaurant

    One of the main reasons to stay here is the renowned vegan and 100% organic restaurant Vegan Farm Restaurant I Pini Tuscany. A household name in Tuscany! The chef crafts inventive 'plant-based' dishes daily using produce from their own garden or carefully selected local farmers in the area. Picture artisanal pastas to homemade pies made with ancient grains and fresh vegetables and fruits of the season. Even if you're not (yet) vegan, you'll undoubtedly appreciate the culinary delights served on your plate. They are guaranteed to be flavorful, colorful, and pure.

    Under the Tuscan sun

    Another significant reason to opt for a stay at Vegan Agrivilla I Pini is the laid-back atmosphere it exudes. From the moment you arrive, it feels like you're staying with good friends, instantly creating a warm and welcoming ambiance. Here, they understand the art of slow living, allowing you to relax without a care in the world. You can experience this tranquility in the peaceful garden and on the outdoor terrace, where a serene calmness prevails. Enjoy a toast to the good life as the sun slowly sets behind the Tuscan hills. Let yourself be enchanted by the scents and colors around you and cherish an unforgettable moment.

    San Gimignano and Volterra

    From the pool and the garden, you can quickly spot the imposing towers of the medieval village of San Gimignano emerging on the horizon. This charming village is just a 20-minute walk away, and you can reach it within minutes by car. San Gimignano is renowned as one of the most picturesque and beautiful villages in Tuscany. Also, within a 30-minute drive by car, you'll find Volterra, which falls into the same category: picturesque, with medieval alleyways perfect for delightful strolls, making it ideal for an authentic Tuscan vacation.



    Vegan Agrivilla I Pini is nestled in the beautiful Tuscan hills between the cities of Pisa, Florence, and Siena. The medieval village of San Gimignano is just a few kilometers from the accommodation. Volterra is also easily accessible and definitely worth a visit.
