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).

Il Cardino was a great place to relax and also explore the countryside, being close to Volterra and San Gimignano (about 20 minutes drive) and, the hidden gem of Val d'Elsa. The rooms are perfectly fitted out, and the swimming pool area and views are eye catching. However the most important part of this hotel is the friendliness of the... More

We stayed in Il Cardino for 10 nights. The view of countryside is beautiful and the place itself very nice. Big swimming pool with more than enough equipment, steadily cleaned in the late evenings. The couple who run it are delightful and very helpful, exactly as Mr. Thomas, who helps them, not forgetting the rest of staff. The room was... More

Stayed for one night to explore San Gimingnano. Staff very friendly. We stayed in upper room, might be better to stay at lower level so you could have outside sitting area. Extra 5 euros per day to use the adjoining kitchen area.

This was our favorite place to stay in Italy! If you want to experience Tuscany, this is the way to do it. Antico Borgo il Cardino has a rustic feel and beautiful views of the countryside. We just loved sitting on our private patio taking in the views and sipping wine. The breakfast was delightful, especially the homemade cake every... More

Antico Borgo is a quiet and beautiful place but it's strength is the staff. Monica, Lucia and Tomas (forgive me, I forget other names) go the extra mile to make you feel at home and make sure you have everything you need. Tomas speaks perfect English and the others will make a good effort. If you need directions ask Lucia,... More

Trip advisor offers a long list of languages to write reviews in, but not romanian. This should change in the future. This charming pension is located in a very peaceful and beautiful area, convenient to reach all major touristic points in the area. By car, Pisa 70 km, Florence 40, Siena 30, San Gimignano 10. Rooms are spotless clean. An... More

I researched Trip Advisor long and hard before deciding on Il Cardino as we wanted somewhere close to San Gim, with a pool and aircon in the rooms. We were not disappointed. It is definitely worth going for the Superior rooms (which most of them are) as you get a small patio, we were lucky to get one of the... More

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and spacious. The bathrooms are also very clean and come with nice amenities. The staff was so warm and welcoming. The breakfast was perfect. Although we didn't use the pool we sat by it under the veranda and enjoyed the beautiful view. I stayed here with a... More
