A lovely shop to buy wild boar salami (many flavours); sliced, ready to eat; beautiful cheese; bottles of fabulous wine. Enabled us to have a beautiful afternoon back at our hotel watching the sunset.

The location is great, a couple of kms out of San Gimignano - we walked back at midnight with kids aged 8 and 10 without a problem after a wine tasting in the town (minor note that taxis are difficult to secure and quite expensive - 30 EUR one way). The pool and amenities around the farm are also great.... More

We purchased Salame di Cinghiale al tartufo, it cost 14 euros. My wife loves truffles more than almost anything else. She says your salame was the best thing she... More

Surrounded by the vineyards and with a view of the San Gimgnano towers in the distance, you can't beat it! Our cottage was cosy and well equipped. The small kitchen has a gas hob and fridge so that you... More

It is a humble, tranquil place were the olives grow, the vinyard with (Vernaccia) grapes is carefully taken care off and the wild boar are well looked after. The family is hard working and most welcoming. They also have a shop in San Gimignano were their products are sold.... More

After traveling trough the south of France, crossing Italy from North to South and Sicily, we have spent the last part of our honey moon in San Gimignano and stayed at "La Buca". It was definitely the best part of our trip, we loved the village, the landscapes, the food and the wines. "La Buca" is a charming wonderful place,... More
