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.

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
