We loved our stay here. This wonderful B&B is in the Tuscan country side but only a few minutes from San Gimignano and central to other cities such as Lucca, Siena and Volterra. Our room was large and very clean and we had a view of San Gimignano from our widow. The staff was great and breakfast was delicious and... More

My husband, two boys and I are here now. Perfect. Just perfect. The drive here and the view is the Tuscany I have seen all my life. Our place is so clean, seems new on the inside but the exterior is perfect Tuscany. Roomy rooms and large bathrooms. Everything you need is here. There is a pool for the boys... More

Set in the countryside of Tuscany, we stayed for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The location is great, close to San Gimignano and central to everything else. We drove to La Spezia one day to see Cinque Terre. Apartment was clean and comfortable if a little dated. Breakfast was fresh and filling. Nice little trattoria up the road but... More

The hotel is in the middle of olive trees and vineyards with a beautiful view of the countryside. San Gimignano is a short but energetic walk down a path that winds between the vineyards. Rooms are basic but clean. Breakfast was delicious- croissants, cakes, hot food- everything you need to recharge before a busy day in the countryside. Staff were... More

I had a very good time there. Place, location and all staffs are superb. You can see the city of San Gimignano very clearly from here. Nice for photographers I bet. Although the hotel may be not reachable for anyone going there without car but you can get picked up by the villa as a free service. All staffs and... More

We had 8 nights here with our dog, we drove over from the UK. It's everything you need for a relaxed place to stay with friendly staff who take care of you. They made the difference. Perfect location to explore the big sights in Tuscany and then having San Gimignano on your doorstep is breathtaking. Christiano, Ambre and Tamara were... More

We stayed here for 4 days as a base in Tuscany. For that purpose, it was great. San Gimignano gets EXTREMELY busy during the day with loads of tour buses. By venturing out during the day, we then returned to San Gimignano for supper and evening walks in relative peace and quiet after the throngs of people left (even though... More
