“Incredibly warm hospitality and fabulous homecooked food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

My recent visit to Il Vecchio Maneggio proved to be all that I had remembered it to be from my first visit some years ago. The accomodations are not luxurious, but practical and comfortable. The scenery around the property is breathtaking, with clear views of the city of San Gimignano in the distance, surrounded by all the beauty of the hills of Tuscany. The most incredible aspect of this location however, is the warm, generous hospitality of the the proprietors, Tiziana and Mauro. Tiziana opens her arms and her home to visitors and LOVES to feed her guests from their ORGANIC farm and gardens. Tiziana speaks some english, but even without words, a visitor can feel the warmth, pride and passion that this family has for their working farm and B&B.
So...highlights would be: Their amazing honey (yes, they keep bees), organic wine, family-style dinners, low-key relaxed atmosphere, and of course, the matriarch Tiziana! I can't wait to return!!

From the first minute there, until our last minute, we enjoyed Il Vecchio Maneggio and entire staff. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable, the food is so tasty, so good, and the hosts Tizziana and Mauro, are so welcoming and warm people.
We already miss them, and the 8 o'clock dinner served by Tizziana. We are 100% coming back here.
Tuscany ~ Il Vecchio Maneggio ~ Tizziana and Mauro and all the personel.
We recommend to everyone Il Vecchio Maneggio.

did not stay at the farmhouse because it was full but got to do horse-riding. it was a beautiful scenery to go through the vineyard, forest, and up the hill. my horse, Ugo, was lovely and it was quite funny to see him stop here & there trying to eat grapes... hopefully we can stay at this farmhouse on our next visit to Tuscany

We (my daughter and I) only stayed one night, but I wish we had stayed more. The dinner on Friday night was the highlight with everyone sat around the table, and Tiziana serving up delightful dishes and wines, along with her great sense of humour. Ask her about her trip to Boston ;)
Great place, wonderful view of San Gimignano. Would love to go back.

We have just returned from a trip around Italy. Our stay at Il Vecchio Maneggio was our favourite part of the holiday.:we liked it so much that we stayed an extra night.
The farmhouse itself is traditional,clean and well presented, as was the room we stayed in.
Tiziana, the 'hostess' and her family are very welcomming.
A traditional, home-cooked dinner is served each evening- the meal incorporates organic produce of the farm:-, honey, saffron, olive oil and wine ( which flows freely with the meal) We really enjoyed the dinner and that was good value for the quality and quantity of the food.
The Tuscan Countryside surrounds the farm house with the town of San Gimignano being visible on the horrizon- we had a car but I think it would be possible to walk even if quite time consuming.
We would reccomend Il Vecchio Maneggio to our friends and would hope to stay there again ourselves!
