My wife and I have stayed here three times, with a fourth trip planned for next year. It is a very pleasant hotel, with amazing views of the Tuscan countryside. If you have a rental car, it is a perfect jumping off place for day trips all over Tuscany. Erika, at the front desk, is very helpful. She makes us... More

You don't need to be out and away from San Gimiganao when staying in this region. This accommodation has amazing views over vineyards and olive groves in a country-like feeling, but, it is such a short walk to the main walled centre and attraction. We feel we were extremely lucky to have researched and booked this place!

Within a short walk to the walled city, but with great views of the country side, this charming place had everything one needed for a nice holiday stay. I especially appreciated... More

Very satisfied with this hotel. Unthought the location was perfect as it was just outside the city walls. It was approximately one quarter mile from the main entrance to the city. The brooms were very clean and the breakfasts were above average. I'd stay again.

As usual an enjoyable stay at the Santa Chiara. The staff are friendly and helpful and it is always a pleasure to stay here. The location, just below the walls of San Gimignano, makes ideal for visiting San Gimignano and other towns & cities in the area, as well as providing peace and tranquillity away from the daily tourist coach...
