This agriturismo is in a great location, only a short walk from the southern San Gimignano gate, but overlooking the Tuscan farm land. Anna is very helpful and efficient, the rooms are nicely decorated and spotless clean. The property is small and intimate with only three rooms. The best part is the breakfast. Tuscan meats and cheese, home made jams... More

Il Colto was a perfect place to stay for our five days in Tuscany. The location is close to all of the quaint villages in the area. The B&B was clean, comfortable, and in such a scenic spot just outside the walls of picturesque San Gimignano. Huge breakfast each morning out on the terrace overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills and... More

Of the five different places we stayed in Italy..Il Colto was by far the very Best..clean beyond compare...friendly hospitality, spacious room and BEST BATH EVER! The views from the breakfast patio are breathtaking! Close to walk to town, near everything including roadway. Anna, is simply the most gracious host we have ever had in Europe. She could charge more for... More

LOCATION: Very well located. the BB is outside the city walls, just 2 min walk from the town and in the road Via Vecchia, where you can find some wineries. We have tried the... More

Apartment is clean and amenities work. Very conveniently located to neighbouring Tuscan towns. Pool and garden is very well maintained. Fantastic views all round. Service is more than excellent...personalised and extremely helpful hosts.

Me and my boyfriend went there at the end of April. It's a really nice farm house in a perfect location as it's just 2 minutes walk from the town centre. Our room was clean and comfortable. A car park was available for free inside the hotel itself. We didn't have breakfast as it was not included, however I think... More

We stayed at Il Colto for two nights and would highly recommend this agriturismo for location alone: it is literally steps from the south gate of the city of San Gimignano. The room was large and spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom. One pleasant surprise were the well-kept gardens and grounds surrounding the inn. There were multiple tables and chairs... More

The place is very close to the town center. Our room was spotless clean and spacious, with a comfortable bed, tv and air-conditioning. The bathroom was also very clean, and there was never a shortage of hot water in the shower. In general, everything was great apart from a couple of things that may not even matter to some. First,...

We stayed at Il Colto for two nights, exploring the Chianti region by car (free parking = big plus!) during the day and enjoying San Gimigniano in the evening when most of the tourist buses had left. Our room was spotlessly clean and did not feel dated and worn-down like most of the other hotels we stayed at while in... More

Clean, comfortable room with ample-sized shower. Plenty of hot water. Good breakfast. Fantastic location only 2 minute walk from the south gate of San Gimi's walls. Free parking (which is important if you're planning a trip to San Gimi), secure, gated (owner provided a keyfob controller so we could get in at any hour). We'd stay here again.
