“friendly hosts, nice place, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

We stayed here in october and enjoyed it. Splendid views over the Elsa valley and well reachable by car. Without a car it is not recommended. The owners are very friendly, flexible and helpful hosts who cook a lovely meal if you don't like to go out. The room was good though sparsely furnished and the shower took some time to warm up and is a little low for large people ... . Nice pool with a view, although it was too cold to use when we were there in october.
In all a place to recommend for a nice stay near San Gimignano.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2008

Il Castagnolino is a pleasant little farm in the proximity of San Gimignano. The hosts are very polite and have useful information about trips to the hinterland.
The food really needs to be pointed out - It is simply delicious. The usual antipasti, primi and secondi plati (starter, first and second course) are based on tuscany recipes and taste delightfully.
The rooms are clean and furnished with the basics, don't expect any top edge luxury - they are rather rustic.

Overall a very nice place to rest, with a great view, clean and tidy rooms and the best home made food you can imagine.
