I was looking for a home base for our family vacation in Tuscany. A nice place that is at a reasonable driving distance from all important sites (Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca etc.) that fits for a family. I found this one, and it was AMAZING. Excellent view, beautiful place, well equipped for a family (kitchen, pool, a few min.... More

A beautifully kept, relaxing base from which to explore Tuscany. All the apartments in this beautiful old building are slightly different but seem to be spacious and well appointed. These are apartments though,not a hotel. We were in a first floor apartment so if we wanted to eat outside we had to carry the food down a flight of stairs.... More

We were looking for somewhere to have a relaxing week, whilst being in an ideal position to explore Tuscany - Il Coltro couldn't have been more ideal and absolutely ticked every box...and then some! The property is a large villa divided up into individual apartments which are full of rustic charm. We stayed in Il Fauno which had a large... More

Tuscan country side living. Beautiful property and views. Spacious apartment with simple kitchen - more than enough for our needs. Nice pool. The owner, Mauro, is super nice and welcoming. We very much enjoyed ourselves. The location is great - close to San Gimignano and almost equal distance to Siena and Florence.

Il Coltro was recommended to us by a friend who has been visiting it for many years and we weren't disappointed at all. The location is just wonderful with a view across to San Gimignano and the apartment was comfortable and well appointed. Mauro & Donatella were very helpful with any queries we had. We had a very good dinner... More

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
