I was part of the group of 24 that stayed there in May. It was a wonderful experience! Everything was great as was stated by other reviewers from my group. It is a pleasant walk away from San Gimigano, which is great if you want to do some shopping. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to this area and... More

I had the privilege of spending a week at beautiful Guardastelle. I think my heart and soul are still there as it was such a perfect week from the food to the accommodations, and especially the great care that Fausto, Susanna, Barbara and the rest of the staff gave to our group, they were all so nice. We had breakfast... More

My wife and I stayed with Susanna, Fausto and Barbara for our Honeymoon for a week in May. Everything was great with the stay from the initial communication to their friendly welcome every day. Their restaurant recommendations in San Gimignano were right on! There were a few places we ate multiple times. Take their cooking class if you get the... More

My wife and I toured Italy for 3 weeks and this was the best place that we stayed. It is only a short walk up the hill to San Gimignano and an even shorter walk on the way back! The owners, Susanna and Fausto put their hearts and souls into this property and it shows. Our room was great and... More

Twenty four women, from Canada, on a painting holiday in Tuscany were pampered and treated like queens. Guardastelle is just magnificent! Fausto, Suzanna, Barbara and the rest of the staff were friendly and accommodating. There was nothing more we could have asked for from the welcome dinner, winery tour and wine tasting, cooking class, it was all perfection. I stayed... More

Our group of 24 artists rented the whole property for a painting holiday in May. It was the most wonderful trip! The rooms and apartments are fabulous. Nicely decorated and very clean. I can't say enough about our hosts; Suzanna, Fausto and Barbara. Nothing was too much trouble. They are the nicest people you will ever meet! The rest of... More

Dear "MLV038", it's with a big THANK YOU that I want to start this reply. First of all because you spend very kind words about us. In the past reviews we had someone how, perhaps, misundertood our mood thinking we are thieves or some other bad things.... so this is probably the most important thing! I, of course, really appreciate... More

5 stars across the board. This place had everything we hoped for and more!! Tucked below San Gimignano and only a 25 min walk (5 min drive) this hidden gem was unbelievable. The staff (Fausto, Susanna,and Barbara) were incredible. The place gives you the old time charm with modern day upgrades. Centrally located we were able to tour many areas... More

Guardastella is a magical place. The location (a short walk from San Gimignano), the facility and the people you will meet are beyond imagination. Owners Fausto and Susanna and the manager Barbara were wonderful. So charming, friendly and accommodating you feel like you are staying with family. Our group of six adults occupied two very well appointed apartments in a... More

Regardless of where you travel, (and we've traveled a lot), you will not find a nicer, more accommodating staff than at Guardastelle. Fausto and Susannah are the owners, but it was Barbara that we had the most interaction with even before our arrival. She is a gem,and they are blessed to have her. Fausto is a real gentleman, and we... More

Dear "BrickLeb", I'm a little surprised to read your review but I'm obviously very glad you did. You had a few busy day with us and I'm happy you found some time to taste our own wines. I'm sorry to read about the bed, I'm wondering why you didn't tell me in the morning during breakfast as I was there... More

We booked this one line from Australia and we where so excited to be staying in a elegant stunning room overlooking the valley. This is a wonderland and the owners Fausto, Susannah and team are so accommodating and are happy to help. I would recommend a cooking class which was one of our highlights! Beautifully appointed, well staffed and friendly.

Dear "Aruth2011", I'm very happy to see you recommend our cooking class because you told me you did so many around the world that I was a little worried....it wasn't an easy day for us, do you remember?
