We spent a couple of nights in Certaldo, making day trips to Sienna, San Gimignano and Chianti Road. Podere Benintendi was our base camp. The hotel has a fantastic breakfast, is located in a very quiet area and features many extras such as a gym and small kitchens that are ideal for preparing lunch or packed lunch. It's close to...

We arrived at Podere Benintendi and were very happy, at first, with what we found. Located at the top of a hill overlooking Certalde and in the distance, the San Gimignano skyline. Close enough to the local supermarket to take full advantage of the self catering aspect of the accommodation - or so we thought. Upon putting our baby to... More

A beautiful place with very hospitable people. We looked for a place to spend our vacation in Tuscany. After 2 weeks of search the final winner for us was Pondere Benintendi. It’s located on the top of a hill over the old town of Certaldo and a direct view of the San Gimignano skyline. You can spend hours in the... More

Tuscany at its finest, wonderful location on top of a hill, with direct view to old town of Certaldo and the famous San Gimignano skyline, make sure you check the local cellar in order to enjoy a quiet evening in the company of Tuscany's best

Beautiful property and very hospitable family. We stayed on our way back to southern Italy from Germany and it was a nice place to stop and recharge. Will definitely make a point of staying here for our Tuscany trip. They cook a dinner meal for the guests you can partake in for an extra charge which was totally worth it.... More

I have to start by saying we extensively researched B & B's in Tuscany and had 4 narrowed down. We ended up deciding on Podere Benintendi because -- from the pictures, the view from the pool was outstanding. This place exceeded our expectations. The second we arrived, I knew we made the right choice. The breakfast reception room is so... More

My mom, sister and I stayed 6 nights in the Galileo apartment. Check in and out went smoothly. I never caught the name of the staff, but the younger lady who spoke the best English, as well as female owner, whose English was good enough, were both friendly and helpful. They gave us a map of Certaldo and marked the... More

We spent just short of a week in a 1 bedroom apartment, with our little toddler. We were barely greeted to the villa (very far from a courteous "let us know if you need something"). The apartment had a foul odor and suffered from piping/plumbing noises from the apartment above. The closets were not inviting to say the least and... More

Wow! I cannot wait to go back to this place. The building and property was stunning! The rooms were beautifully decorated and truly made you feel like you were in Tuscany. Everything was clean and comfortable. The outside area around the B&B was very nice as well, with lots of sitting areas and gorgeous views of the surrounding hills. I... More

This is my second time to the Tuscany area and I must say that this Bed & Breakfeast took the cake out of all of the hotels I have ever stayed in Europe... It is perched on top of a hill that gives you a 360 degree unobstructed wonderful view of Tuscany. It is also centrally located between Florence, Pisa,... More
