I have to agree with all of the five star reviews, we had a lovely week at Il Coltro, just sitting by the pool and admiring the scenery with book and glass of wine in hand. The hospitality offered by Mauro & Donatella is warm & helpful but never intrusive. The accommodation is well appointed and immaculately clean.

In May 2012, we spent 2 glorious weeks at “Il Coltro”. Our accommodation in the lovingly restored farm building was extremely comfortable, spacious and well laid out for 2 couples. Two bedrooms (each with queen size bed and separate bathroom) are located on either side of the common, large dining and living room areas. The efficiency kitchen is compact and... More

The pictures can not fully describe the beauty of Il Coltro farmhouse. Both the apartment interior and the house surroundings are stunning. The view at San Gimignano is wonderful. We stayed in apartment L'Etrusco, a two floor apartment. Mauro, the host, offered great hospitality and excellent advices. Where to eat and where to go in the area. A definitive recommendation,...

Mauro gave us good directions even though we missed a couple of turns but we did find it. This farmhouse is in a beautiful setting that looks over vineyards and we could see San Gimignano in the distance. Our one bedroom was very large with nice living area, nice size kitchen with everything you need and canopy bed with bath... More

Hosts most accommodating and atttentive - delightful people - and the physical place is in lovely countryside (about 20 minutes drive o/s San Gimignano) with great views. Shower works fantastically well! No soap was provided so be sure to take some. La Veduta and Cipressi are virtually identical (with the former having better and wonderful panaroamic views) but both have... More

My mother and I spent a week at Il Coltro at the end of Sept, the accommodation is first class and the setting is just beautiful. Everything we needed was made available and all of the Tuscan sights that we wanted to visit were easily accessible. With views over San Gimignano and the surrounding vineyards this property exceeded all of... More

Mauro and Donatella (and Pongo the dog) are the most wonderful hosts you could wish for. Nothing was too much trouble for them. There was a large bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of chianti waiting for us upon our arrival. event though we didn't arrive until after midnight, Mauro and Donatella were extremely welcoming and ensured that we...

Our stay at Il Coltro was amazing in every way!! Mauro, Donatella and Pongo (their dog) were such wonderful hosts who were always there to help us out with all of our needs (directions, great restaurants, etc). The villa itself is perfect! The grounds are beautiful with unbelievable views of the surrounding vineyards and of San Gimignano. The pictures do... More

Mauro and Donatella (and Pongo the dog) are the most kind and amiable hosts you could hope for. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Only 10 minutes drive from the great San Gimignano, Il Coltro is an extremely nice and well maintained farmhouse. The apartments are roomy, the beds huge, the pool big (although the water could have been warmer!) and the garden made for romantic dinners. The owners - Mauro and Donatella - are helpful and friendly. Il Coltro is very well located,... More
