Nice & friendly couple own this B&B and is very close to San Gimignano. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is homely in the owner's dining room. We wish we could speak more Italian to learn more about them. We had a wine tasting in their cellar and bought some home with us.

This is a small b&b located a 5 min drive out of San Gimignano with free parking. It is possible to walk to the town within 30 mins (although make sure you take a torch in the evening). Our room didn't include a kitchenette like the others but was still a good size and had a fridge. The accommodation is... More

We spent around for a week and it went for a walk in all of Tuscany. Lovely family entertained us with courtesy and a smile. Breakfasts are delicious and rich, we did a tour of the family's assets - a winery, vineyards, olive oil production and more. Every day we received the recommendations of family members where Lide went for... More

Il Colombaio di Santa Chiara is a fantastic Agriturismo located just outside the beautiful small walled medieval town of San Gimignano. The Logi family are the most wonderful hosts of this beautiful vineyard and olive grove. The accomodation is located on the lower level of the family home set on top of a hill with sweeping views across San Gimignano.... More

Just outside San Gimignano, as in less than a five-minute drive on the road towards San Donato and Castel San Gimignano, is Il Colombaio di Santachiara. In true agriturismo style, it is a working family property - wines and olive oil! A beautiful terrazzo leads to the doorway with the three accommodation rooms, very tastefully finished. The room was a... More

This place was incredibly hard to find as the address listed for GPS is incorrect. When you reach San Gimignano, don't go into he village. Follow signs to Volterra and the hotel is about 5km down the road. The view of the hills is stunning. It is a very peaceful location with chickens and other birds the only sounds at... More

This is such a charming place in a gorgeous location. The breakfast was great, the room was comfortable and welcoming. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Plus, San Gimignano village is so delightful. Highly recommended! Do be sure to get good directions though as we did need help finding the place.

I spent months researching places to stay for our trip to Tuscany and this was definitely a pleasant surprise. We stayed in San Gimignano in May 2012 and although it rained a little bit each day, we still enjoyed our stay. Each day we drove into the city and there were plenty of restaurants, churches, and shops to keep you... More

Firstly there are two locations connected to il colombaio di Santa Chiara. Firstly, there is the accommodation which is situated close to San Gimiganao which also includes a tasting room. You will need a car to drive from the accommodation to San Gimignano. The second location is situated in San Donato which is absolutely stunning. This is where their Olive... More

Spent three nights there and it was lovely. We could walk to San Gimignano (that is, we walked during the day; when we went back after dark we drove and parked just outside the village gate). It was relaxing to go back to San G in the evening when the throngs of tourists left. We loved staying at the Colombaio.... More
