Guardastelle was our first stop on a two week journey through Italy. Our family of 5 spent 3 nights in 2 of the rooms in the comfortable B&B. We were impressed by the beautiful countryside, the spectacular accommodations, and the hospitality of the hosts, especially Barbara. The setting is idyllic: we had post-card perfect views of the countryside from every... More

We stayed at Guardastella for four nights in July. It's a magical place, so relaxing and beautiful. Everyone there was fanatastic. Fausto and Barbara helped with anything we needed. Our room, the Renato, was lovely, lots of old world charm. It was quite spacious with a very nice bathroom and the A/C worked well. The included breakfast was excellent with... More

My husband and I spent two lovely days at Guardastelle Agriturismo on our recent trip to Italy and we can't wait to go back. Our room was clean and beautiful, the bed was very comfortable. The views were stunning, the breakfast porch has a beautiful view of San Gimignano framed perfectly by the curtains and greenery. The breakfast was delicious... More

Guardastelle was the perfect addition to our Italy itinerary allowing us to explore the gorgeous town of San Gimignano and surrounds. After picking up a car in Florence it was a very easy drive (around an hour) to Gaurdastelle, just a few minutes out of San Gimignano. Whilst we were told it was just a short walk into town, we...

Dear "AussieGirl1985", I'm glad to see it was an easy drive (some complain about that). Summer in Tuscany is usually pretty hot but that's why we have a beautiful pool to enjoy, as you did. Bug spray is useful but it's strange as this year we sprayed twice against mosquitos. We don't keep milk out of fridge as with this... More

Great for visitors with a car although only a 20 minute walk to San Gimignano town. Nice pool and country setting among the vineyards. Beautiful view of San Gimignano towers from the breakfast balcony. Pleasant hosts. We stayed here a week and travelled to neighbouring towns like Volterra, Positano, etc. Average breakfast on a beautiful terrace. They also offer wine... More

Dear "Hgfreeinmtl", we're very close to San Gimignano (and you can go there by walk) but I always recommend a car. Public transports are not easy in the countryside if you want to sightsee the nearby towns......oh! by the way Positano is about 600 km from us, I don't think you had a daily trip there ;-) It's a shame...

My husband and I stayed at Guardastelle for three nights during our three week trip to Italy. It was magical. We were greeted by the owner after a stressful encounter with our rental car agency and promptly given a glass of their local wine, made in house. Everything about the place was breathtaking from the very first moments we pulled... More

Dear "Hania D", yes we produce our own wines and extra virgin and what better welcome if not a glass of our cold white wine during a hot summer day ;-) ? While we're pretty expert in wine tour+tasting, the cooking class is a new activity from 2014. Even if we like to cook, organise a class is something different.... More

We stayed here in July with our son for 2 nights. Such a shame we didn't stay longer, next time we definitely will ! The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are wonderful and the hospitality outstanding !

From the moment we entered the driveway leading up to Guardastelle, we felt we had returned to see long lost friends. Barbara met us at our car, and quickly checked us in, showing us to our rooms, and offering a glass of refreshing white wine made on the premises. Fausto and Suzanne were just finishing up a cooking class, and... More

We stayed in the Antillia apartment (2 bedroom) in August 2015. Spacious (c. 50-60 sqm I would say), well-equiped and large kitchen, large terrace overlooking the property. Agriturismo is a very nice place with a beautiful garden, attractive swimming pool and great views of the countryside. San Gimignano is a 20 minutes walk away and agriturismo is a good base... More
