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.

What a delightful introduction to the San Gimignano area.. A quiet retreat, beautiful scenery with gardens and pool to relax in. A walk to the local Tre Archi restaurant was so easy and so wonderful!! A hearty breakfast to set you on your way! Excellent staff. A wonderful place to stay.

I honestly was trying to come up with something negative to say about this place, but I just did not have anything to say but - pure perfection. The view while driving up the windy roads and the smell of pure nature is the epitome of romance. Then you arrive at this beautiful, yet unpretentious piece of heaven. Each room... More

I just recently completed a 3 week long tour of Europe, and of the 10 or so hotels I stayed at, this was my favorite one-- and here is why: I had a horrible time getting to San Gimignano. I got lost on the buses and arrived in the city much later than planned-- 2 hours after checkout for the... More

Wonderful unique relaxing Tuscan villa. We loved staying here surrounded by beauty. The gardens, flowers, stunning glass bottles used to water the trees, pool, dam, ducks, wine, and views around this B&B were wonderful. We had the two bedroom apartment top floor with kitchen in between our two rooms for our family of four. We all enjoyed swimming and relaxing... More

We stayed there in comfort, breaking up our Italy trip to explore this part of Toscana. Found it impropmtu and it was one of the gifts befitting our style of travelling a new countryside. You may choose to bathe in the magic of the very early mornings at the borgo and take a photo of yourself grinning in the pool,... More

We choose this agriturismo because it is very well situated to visit Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, ... Very friendly staff and wonderful swimming pool. Very nice, also for families with greater children (they must be able to swim).
