Our stay in Villa Alba was very good. Room are very clean and comfortable, and the place is simply charming. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is awesome. It's outside the city walls so it has parking, and you can walk to the old city in less than 5 min. Highly recommended.

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

We have been to San Gimignano several times but had never known about Villa Alba. 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
