I spent two nights here in April 2015 with my boyfriend and we tried to change our travel plans to stay longer (one other couple who was also staying there actually did this!). It is stunningly beautiful, extremely clean and very quiet. You can walk to nearby San Gimignano, which we loved after our evening meals. Fausto is super kind... More

I can not say enough about this place! It is what dreams are made of. The scenery is stunning, the food and wine are to die for, and the rooms are treated with the greatest care. San Gigminano is just a 20 minute walk away which we went into each day to enjoy the award winning gelateria, Dondoli. We stayed... More

Dear "LostinHI", what to say to this splendid couple? You are the smile in person, you brought here the wind (you rememebr right :-) ) who brought again the sun after a cold rainy Easter. The wedding was great, very private. We should do some more of those little ceremony. Thank you so much to have been part of Guardastelle... More

My review could have been disastrous, but Fausto and Susanna are a wonderful couple! We booked a room for a family vacation, and a couple of weeks before the date were informed that there was a technical problem with the room. This was a bit stressful and could have been a major problem, but Fausto and Susanna helped us to... More

We stayed in the Perseo apartment for one week in June 2014. For us everything was perfect the accommodation was just how we imagined a rustic Tuscan apartment/villa to be. The views were stunning and the swimming pool provided a welcome cool down after a day sight seeing. We spent most evenings relaxing on the terrace with a bottle of... More

A charming b & b that is also a small winery. Lovingly restored home with five rooms or so. Also some cottages. The views in every direction are incredible but especially the one of San Gimignano. One can walk to the town in 20-30 minutes. Hosts are very welcoming, breakfast delicious, and the tranquil setting cannot be beat. Wine tours,... More

We had lunch here with our tour of Tuscany. What a wonderful experience! And we are still enjoying the wonderful wine we ordered! Only wish we could order more, but I think you can only purchase there! Would definately stay here if we return to Tuscany!

We walked into the reception met Barbara (who is amazing by the way!) and asked to stay an extra night before we had even seen the room. Barabra got on the phone and managed to amend our hotel booking in Florence without us being charged and also extended our car hire. Legend! The views of the vineyards and rolling hills... More
