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... More

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.

We spent one week in Fattoria Abbazia Monte Oliveto in July in the two bedroom appartment with the terrace . There is so much to recommend, the entire place is so well looked after and clean, from the appartment with all its facilities to the grounds. The location just a 10 - 15 stroll into San Gimignano was excellent. As... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
About 1km from the medieval town of San Gimignano, surrounded by centuries-old olive trees and vineyards cultivated with Vernaccia, lays the Agritourism of the Abbey of Monte Oliveto, built in 1340 by the Olivetan monks. Abbazia Monte Oliveto's farm, today property of the the Zonin family, offers 7 comfortable apartments, harmoniously furnished in typical Tuscan country style, dominated by the legendary towers of San Gimignano and immersed in the surrounding greenery of the countryside. Each apartment has every possible comfort, including heating, satellite television and telephone. The apartments are all different so there is something to suit everyone, and some rooms have bathrooms which are specially equipped for the disabled. Our guests have access to a large car park, the garden, the swimming pool and our store selling typical farm produce such as top-quality wine and olive oil. ... more   less
