Loved the villa and the People running it. It was exactly where I wanted to be located in Tuscany with a spectacular view all around. We are so happy we found it and stayed there. If I ever get the opportunity to go again i would stay thre again.

The rooms were big and each day the room was cleaned perfectly. The owners are excellent hosts and make sure your stay is perfect. Also the breakfast is pretty good and every... More

I've spent 6 nights at this lovely and cozy location during July 2015. Together with my husband, my daughter and few friends we had one of the best experiences we ever had in Tuscany. The resort is clean, rooms are very spacious, pool area is clean and nice and the views over the hills (San Gimignano area) are amazing! Our... More

We were looking for a place centrally located in Tuscany that has basic amenities and was suitable for small children. The only other requirement we had was a pool. We stumbled across Antico Borgo il Cardino and couldn't be happier. The location is great - a secluded, large property a few minutes from San Gimignano and centrally located between Siena,... More

Very good location for relaxing holiday in the Tuscan countryside, complete with 5 star pool area. Thomas, Monica and Leandro work hard to ensure their guests' satisfaction and are very kind and helpful. Excellent breakfast included with gluten free options provided which were greatly appreciated. WiFi is somewhat patchy and can only be accessed near the Reception area and there... More

Cons - Our room was dark and damp. No windows, fluorescent lights - Some kinds... More

Thank you for your time and your review.

Really good staff, friendly, secure, good breakfast, pool is good opportunity after all day, really very clean room. The only think that I was not sure our room type. I did reserve superior double but probably stayed in standart double. Carefull for the picture of the rooms at web and what you get in real.

Lovely week stay here - relaxing by the pool and staying in adjoining rooms upstairs with central kitchen area. Friendly welcoming and relaxing. Only comment would be that the kitchen was lacking in utensils including no sharp knife, but then with bed and breakfast included and eating out there was little need! Great position for exploring Tuscany - Volterra highlight... More

The owners and staff made our five nights feel like we were staying with family, everything was perfect. We will definitely stay here again, as a matter of fact, I is the reason we will be returning to the San Gimignano area.
