We have stayed here a total of about a month between our three trips to Italia over the last few years. It is a great place to use as a home-base while you explore firenze, siena, or any of Tuscany. We had our son with us each time we stayed and there was always plenty for him to do: pool,... More

We stayed in the larger Oliveta suite with three bedrooms on ground floor as we were traveling with elderly parents and our teenage son. Everyone loved this place. The rooms were large and comfortable, the outdoor space for dining was perfect with different tables for Breakfast or lunch or dinner depending on the amount of sun or Shade one wanted.... More

We stopped off here for 1 night en route from Rome to Venice. The location is superb with a fantastic view of San Gimignano town from our bedroom and lovely views of the surrounding vineyards. The apartment was clean and well furnished. Wifi reception in the apartment was quite poor but otherwise everything was great. We walked to and from... More

We stayed here for a week in July. The location is superb: you can easily walk into San Gim to enjoy the inimitable medieval atmosphere and dine al fresco in spots like The Old City Wall with breathtaking views. The Fattoria itself is clean, sympathetically refurbished and has an amazing pool surrounded by lavender plants.. The rooms are spacious, quiet... More

This is a charming little place with a pool and views to die for. San Gimginano is a nice hilltop town, if slightly ruined by tourists. The big bonus of this place is it is a fairly easy (15 min) walk in to town while most places of a similar standard are further away. Only gripes are the mosquitoes (can't... More

We spent the first week in August in the ground floor self-catering apartment - L'oliveta. It was the first time we have had a holiday of this kind - having always camped previously. The apartment was well-equipped and furnished in a simple style. It was spotlessly clean. The weather was very hot when we were there - 38 degrees most... More

We stayed in the second floor apartement - Massino. It was basic but clean with wonderful views of the town and countryside. We loved the fact that I could run to the bakers in the morning and walk to town (even in the heat) in the evenings. The pool was great and the wine tasting good value. Facilities were basic...

We stayed here for a week as part of our honeymoon trip to Italy. the place is so beautiful! We stayed in the Fusaia apartment on the first floor. It had a beautiful view over the Tuscan countryside, this was facing in the direction of the pool, not towards San Gimignano. The apartment was lovely & clean. There was no... More
