The Villa is gorgeous, the people super friendly (the lady we worked with didn't speak English, but it wasn't a problem at all) and the breakfast was a bigger spread than I expected. Be sure to spend some time relaxing on their beautiful grounds - the photos don't do it justice. Short walk to San Gimignano. The rooms are very... More

The house is a classic villa, just so clean and well furnished, we had Room 4 with the balcony and the Villa is built to a wonderful standard. It is only a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of San Gimignano, and with free secure... More

Very nice villa, clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed, optimal and convenient location: just a short walk to the center of San Gimignano. There is also a free parking. Since this place is a b&b, perhaps the breakfast could be improved: I was expecting more typical Tuscany and/or homemade products for breakfast, instead of industrial products such as cakes, juice,...

This is surely a place to keep in mind and to return to. Very nice people, very nice bedrooms, Clean towels daily, Nice house and very nice breakfast. But a 5 min walk to centre just outside the walls of town. Very quiet during the night. Just 50 m away from a grocerystore which was handy for buying fresh drinks... More

We were very pleased with our 4-days stay. The rosecolured(!) Villa Alba is placed 500 m outside the gates of the medieval town. It is newly decorated, with taste. Rooms are faily large, "with a view", beds are good. Modern installations in bathroom. We loved that the kitchen included a refrigerator - were we placed food and bottles bought. There... More
