Really nice, cosy and genuine place. The owner barely speaks English which is great. It makes you converse in scarce Italian which enhances the out of home feeling. Rooms are clean, bed is extremely comfortable and bathroom is neat and well put together. Decor is Tuscan baroque, light and airy. Breakfast is fresh, cappuccino is genuine with plentiful foam. Highly... More

We spent three nights at Il Castagnolo and enjoyed it very much. Beautiful scenery, wonderful host, lovely decorated and very comfortable rooms, great breakfast and in aconvenient location very close to Sangimignano. Can only recommend staying here and if you do, rent a scooter for a day to explore the surroundings, an absolute must do in this area.

Lovely B & B just 2 1/2 km from San Gimignano. We stayed 8 nights and were not happy with the ground floor room we were allocated as people walked past so couldn't leave curtains open. However Emilio kindly moved us the second day to the 1st floor (room 4) which was a lovely large, bright and attractive room. Room... More

Having made my reservation weeks in advance for a four night stay, after a long journey we arrived to be told by the owner that he had overbooked. He didn't have decency to pre warn us of the problem. In many years of travelling the world this has never happened to us before. Beware if you book this place.

We had mixed experience staying here. The first night we felt too cold at night because the heater stopped mid night and we were in a large room which is hard to keep warm. We talked to the Manager Emilio who fixed our problem by changing the pattern of the heater stop time and giving us a smaller room which... More

We stayed three nights as a break between Venice and Rome. Recently renovated, but very relaxed, the most popular feature of this B&B is the open, terraced yard with a modest swimming pool overlooking the Tuscan hills. A very international crowd hangs out, breakfast, noon and night, eating, drinking, reading and chatting. The host, Emilio, is very accommodating, and the... More

A 16m2 squeaky-clean room in the heart of Tuscany - 5 min away from the world heritage town of San Gimignano - , the best breakfast I ever ate in a hotel (variety and quality wise), a decent pool, pleasant decoration, somewhat weird but very attentive hosting and the added bonus: a refrigerator filled with bottles of water at your...

We found this B&B just outside San Gimignano and really enjoyed our 2 night stay there. It's a recently renovated farmhouse, very nicely done, with swimming pool in beautiful surroundings (although only a limited view of the towers of San Gimignano). The people running it were very helpful and very nice. Great place for a peaceful stay in the countryside... More
