We had a fantastic stay in beautiful surrounds. Opening the balcony doors to such an amazing view was a great treat. Having the pool for a refreshing swim during the heat wave was wonderful. We also enjoyed eating breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pool and lovely landscaped gardens. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Being able to stroll... More

Enjoyed a 2 week stay. Room with balcony had a great view of the pool and countryside. Buffet breakfast was plentiful with friendly staff. A short walk into San Gimignano and ideally placed to visit surrounding area of Tuscany.

The hotel is located outside the city walls but it's only 5 minutes walk, a little uphill, to the walls. And the big plus of its location is the outdoor pool, jacuzzi and garden area. There's a good number of loungers and a limited number of pool towels are available. And for those with a car there is plenty of... More

Stayed 3 nights here in one of the budget rooms. These really are very small (possibly original designed as staff bedrooms) and only have a very small window at ceiling height, i.e. you certainly can't look out! Nevertheless, the room had a well equipped bathroom and a comfortable bed. The room was however well described and is INMO very good... More

The staff were kind and helpful and the room was very comfortable with a balcony and a spectacular view over the countryside. It was worth paying the extra charge for the view. Breakfast sitting outside on the terrace was a real pleasure and a great way to start the day.The Hotel location was perfect only a ten minute walk into... More

Easy to find, very helpful staff in a nice and quiet setting. We had one of the country view rooms on the first floor which have a large bedroom and a small balcony as opposed to one of the rooms on the other levels which have a large balcony but a very small room. Personally I'm glad we had the... More

We paid extra for a second floor room with terrace and it was so worth it! The countryside just beyond the pool was drop dead beautiful. San Gimignano had its charms, great gelato but it was the terrace we will never forget. They provide a large umbrella so that even in the rain we were able to read and write... More

We have just returned from a week's stay at Relais Santa Chiara. Fab little hotel - perfectly located for San Gimignano - with it's wide array of restaurants, little shops and markets. It is about a 10 minute walk into the town - and despite reading numerous comments about the walk being uphill - it's really just a gentle slope!... More

we we're glad to pay a little extra for a room with a view of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The room was quiet, air conditioned and clean. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and there was a great variety of restaurants to choose from within walking distance.

We chose this hotel for relaxation and good location for visits after spending a week touring Umbria - we were not disappointed. This hotel has the most beautiful setting one can imagine looking accross the Tuscan valley and the hills in the distance. OK the rooms may be on the small size but we had a bedroom on the second...
