“Fabulous stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We loved our stay at Hotel Pescille. We were warmly greeted by front desk staff and given beautiful rooms with terraces overlooking the beautiful countryside with the spires of San Gimignano in the distance. The pool was a bonus after a long drive and the weather couldn't have been lovelier to sit beside it. Breakfast the next morning was the best we had experienced on our 2 week vacation with various choices for food and as many cappucinos as you wished! would highly recommend this hotel as a lovely place to stay.

We arrived for a three night stay in this lovely converted farm villa, our room on the second floor had a small balcony looking out over San Gimingnano and the valley around it. The old farm equipment is used to decorate the public areas of the hotel and are fascinating. The walls are whitewashed and bright, beds and room more than adequate, breakfast ample and varied. The staff are always friendly and helpful, but it is the views that are to die for. Each day the nature of the view changes, we were lucky to have beautiful sunrises and sunsets, a post thunderstorm clearing sunset with dramatic lighting, a morning fog in the valley with hot air balloons floating above the mist and watching the light dance over the vineyards of the valley below. The view of the towers of San Gimignano cannot be beaten and the calm relaxing nature of this hotel inspires me to return half way around the world again. A car is a must to stay here and it made a fine base for travels around Tuscany with a quiet rest her at the end of each day.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the balcony views, money well spent

We had a great time here on the start of our Italy vacation. It is a great location just outside of the city. We enjoyed the morning breakfasts, the outdoors space (too cold during that time of the year to swim), the wine and the atmosphere. The décor is great and we truly enjoyed our time here. They had some fantastic suggestions for dinner and sitting in front of the hotel at night looking at the city is breathtaking. We enjoyed The Restaurant Zafferano just down the hill from there and an easy walk if you have a flashlight at night.

Room Tip: pick a room with a view of San Gimignano

Our room was small but cosy. The balcony with a breathtaking view over San G. would have justified an even smaller room.
The gardens, pool area as well as other hotel areas are very nice as are staff members.
We had lunch in the restaurant which was not memorable.
All in all we were very satisfied and relaxed when leaving Hotel Pescille.
Don't bring children as the hotel is very quiet and facilitates a meditative environment.

Accommodation rating 10/10. Our family room was really nice, with two bathrooms, an inter-leading room for our 23 year-old daughter. Both rooms opened out onto a beautiful balcony, with spectacular 360 views of the local Tuscan scenery.
The gardens & pool area are really beautiful.
The nearest village is San Gimignano - about 5kms away. We didn't want to drive after dark on the really windy Tuscan roads, especially if we wanted a glass of wine, and, being unfamiliar with driving on the RHS of the road, we chose to eat at the hotel's restaurant.
Unfortunately, and this was the only downer for us, the previously well-rated restaurant at the hotel had closed down a while ago, so dinner options were quite limited. The food on the "kitchen" menu wasn't bad, but not much choice.
Our suggestion is that this superb hotel should offer a shuttle service (say every 2 hours) for guests to go to the beautiful San Gimignano village, so that guests have the option of shopping, eating out, etc without the worry of driving.

When we were planning our trip to Italy, I was searching for an accommodation in the Tuscany area and tripped upon Hotel Pescille. It looked beautiful and when we arrived there on July 17th for a 4 night stay, it did not disappoint. First of all, the location is idyllic. It is high up on a crest overlooking lush greenery and of course their own vineyards, very recessed from the road, but minutes from the medieval town of San Gimignano. It is quaint, but has all the modern conveniences. The rooms are whitewashed, clean, functional and quiet. The panorama from our room, but I understand the same applies to others, is breathtaking. The grounds include a covered outside terrace restaurant, a grassy area with lounge chairs which is somewhat more private, and an inviting pool with plenty of shade as well as sun, teeming with deck chairs. We could have stayed there even longer and would go back in a heartbeat.Everyone was very helpful and gracious and we would highly recommend this to fellow travellers.

We have visited the Pescille three times now, and cannot think of a more perfect place to stay in Tuscany!
The charm, the views, the staff, the food are all the stuff that great memories are made of!
The Pescille is the quintessence of tranquility, following several days of trekking the hill towns.
We love to come "home" to the roaring fire on the patio, great food, great wine and a completely serene environment.
We are already planning our fourth stay, using the Pescille as our home base! Caio!
