In the village you can visit the beautiful XIVth century castle and the TRUFFLE MUSEUM, the charming tiny XIth century Romanesque church of San Pietro in Villore with its cript and “il Bosco della Ragnaia”.

There are public tennis courts in Torrenieri (8 km), the famous Monte Oliveto Abbey is just 7 km away, you can find a spa 18 km away in Bagno Vignoni, wine tasting areas in Montalcino (20 km) or near Siena; the beautiful village of Pienza is 20 km away, Siena is 40 km away; you need 2 hours to get to Florence and 2.5 hours to reach Rome. The VALDICHIANA OUTLET VILLAGE  is half an hour driving from the house.

The territory of San Giovanni includes the hamlets of Lucignano d'Asso, Monterongriffoli, Vergelle and Pieve a Salti. (San Giovanni was originally the seat of rural Etruscan settlements).

The beautiful medieval city of Siena lies some 40 km away, and Florence and San Gimignano are within a day's drive. There is no public transport in San Giovanni, and it is essential therefore to have a car. The nearest airports are approximately 2 and a half hours' equidistant drive away from Rome, Florence and Pisa.

A recent article in THE NEW YORK TIMES featured this town and museum which now brings tourists to this sleepy town, but your house is on a quiet street and once you are inside, you find the quiet and peacefulness of a country home.

The castle hosts the famous White Truffle Market in the month of November.

Within the municipal territory is the picturesque village of Montisi, with its Chiesa dell'Annunziata and its historical grain tower. Here, every year, on the Sunday nearest to the 5th of August (the Festival of the Madonna delle Nevi, the patron saint of Montisi) a jousting contest - the "Giostra di Simone" - takes place.

Among the agricultural products of the area, the white truffle is prized and famous throughout Italy, as are the excellent wines, oil, savoury cheeses and honey.
