Piero and Simona were fantastic hosts, friendly and helpful. We could not fault the hotel, everywhere was spotless and the decor in the room and the breakfast room was charming. Probably one of the best value for money hotels we have ever stayed in, and would certainly make it our first choice if we go back to Tuscany. Can't speak... More

Everything about Villa Alba is beckoning: the gracious owners, the comfortable rooms, the incredible location outside the town walls, the well-tended gardens and pool, and the value. We want to return one day and highly recommend it.

Stayed 6 nights second last week of September. As previous reviewers have mentioned it's a short, safe walk to San Gimignano. Rooms are Clean, beds are comfortable. Great location for day trips to Siena, Volterra, Greve, Panzano etc. Always looked forward to the breakfasts!

Villa Alba was just what we expected on our trip too Tuscany, situated just outside the walled town of San Gimignano tastefully decorated rooms with ample space and a very nice garden and pool. Piero and his very able assistant who worked tirelessly at breakfast but also help us with our other requests. The location was a 10 to 15... More

A wonderful B&B just outside the walls of San Gimignano. It's takes about 7 min to walk to SG. Everything at Villa Alba is done, decorated and cared for with love to small details that made us feel very comfortable and at home right away. The rooms are clean, the bathroom is modern. The garden is beautiful with enough space... More

Extended our stay to three nights in this wonderful villa due to its location, friendly staff and beautiful décor. It also gave the opportunity to take in all of the sites that the region had to offer. Breakfasts were a feast of the local fare and located in the old wine cellar downstairs. Swimming pool in the garden allowed you... More

So glad we stayed here. Very relaxed and ideal location close to village, although you need to mindful its uphill walk going there (5 mins)! We were simply after a base from which to explore surrounding area. Everything about the property exceeded our expectations. Its has got a lot of character which is the result of the owners hard work.... More
