What a great exprience! We stayed here for 6 nights and we enjoyed every moment. The location is perfect for a star trip. The breakfast was great, the rooms are very clean, the pool is in perfect location with such an amazing view. Dont think twice... the price is very cheap and the place is heaven on earth.

We stayed here for 5 nights in the month of July, with the highest temperatures since 150 years in Tuscany. This exceptional heat might explain the insects that were in the room, as was the owner's opionion too. But it made us feel a little bit uncomfortable anyhow, because it's the last thing you want in your room. Apart from... More

We've been 5 days in Podere Benintendi. A magnificent tuscan hill old farm, completely renewed to offer to nowadays tourists the peace, the beauty and the marvels of tuscan hills. The view from the dining terrace is worth the price of the stay. As well as the possibility to swim or refresh in the modern pool, enjoy wines and drinks... More

If you're looking for a charming tipical tuscan view along with peacefully quiet and familiar stay, this is it. The staff (the family) is really welcoming, as well as the rooms are nice and clean. Also possible to have apartment if you prefer to have your own kitchen (otherwise you have a shared one with other rooms). The breakfast couldn't... More

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

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
