We stayed in this BnB for few days as we traveled around the Tuscany area. The hosts were an amazing couple and the breakfast was delicious! Since the rooms were located on a hilltop, you get the best view of San Gimignano and the beautiful vineyards. Would love to stay here again.

This is truly a hidden gem!!! The view of San Gimignano was absolutely incredible from this B and B location. The bed was firm and the room was absolutely spotless with a great shower and great water pressure. The morning breakfast was wonderful and truly an authentic Italian breakfast. The coffee was as much as you wanted, the fresh juice... More

Absolutely beautiful place, reasonable price. Only thing they should try to get working is wlan connection witch doesn't work almost at all. Of course there is beautiful view to look at rather then your phone, but when traveling we would have needed internet for planning.

This place was truly a Tuscan paradise. Beautiful views and gardens, swimming pool and hammock, 6 min drive (or scooter ride! Easy rentals are available in San Gimignano by a guy called Bellini bruno). The couple that run this place, Davide and Annalisa, are so incredibly nice, and they are happy to practise your Italian with you. I came here... More

If you are looking to escape to a quiet place in the Tuscan hillside with postcard views of the towers of San Gimignano than look no further than Podere Montese. A short drive from the historic town center, PM is the perfect contrast to the hectic pace of the tourist centers found throughout Tuscany. Davide and Analisa were wonderful hosts... More

When we arrived to Podere Montese, the sun was setting behind us and lighting up the towers of San Giminano. Once we got settled into the apartment, my husband turned to me and asked if I was certain that I'd gotten the rate right, because it didn't seem enough for such a great location and accommodation. The hosts were hands... More

Davide and analisa are both excellent hosts, that run a peaceful b&b up on a hill nearby san gimignano. Rooms are large and quiet, breakfast buffet well filled and the cappucino very creamy indeed. Good location to discover tuscany with a romantic view (certainly in the evenings) on the towers and the lights of the city. However train connections to... More

We stayed at Podere Montese in mid October. Unlike other previous travellers we experienced wonderful hospitality from Davide and Annalisa. The benefit was most likely that we visited in the low season of the year and that there were very few other visitors. The rooms were spotlessly clean and bathrooms were modern, the property has been renovated recently. The rooms... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while traveling through Italy and thoroughly loved it. Davide and his wife were excellent hosts, The property was gorgeous and spotlessly clean. The closeness to San Gimignano was great, but it was far enough away to have peace and quiet. Highly recommend this palace and we will be going back.
