We had been for a few days in August with my partner. This is a private house in the middle of nature, overlooking hills of San Gimignano. beautiful view. Fact, that no air conditionig we somehow understood - this a "natural" hotel in middle of nature. But we did not find one glass in the room for a glass of... More

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.

What can I say that hasn't already been said. When I started looking for accommodation in rural Tuscany with a pool, easy access by public transport and close enough to a nice town to walk to and fro, I couldn't find much. You'll have to drive, everyone said. Luckily, I stumbled across this place! Stayed here for 5 nights. Davide... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. We were able to walk from Montese to San Gimignano which we did in 30 minutes along the strada Bianca at a brisk walking pace- perfect for us in early May without the heat of summer. The location was peaceful with a fantastic view of the town. Annalisa and Davide were friendly, helpful and... More
