“Fabulous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2010

This B&B is incredible,it has a pool magnificent views of Tuscany,Olive trees,vineyards
as far as the eye can see. The owner Signora Stella and her family are amazing. They
have lounge chairs by the pool,BBQ two great tables with chairs so you can have lunch
or dinner they have a fridge in every room,they have an apartment with kitchen and all
utilities, they have a washer/dryer for the guests at a minimal charge.

they have a bar area where they sell their wine,grappa,olive oil and all other drinks you
can enjoy while by the pool all at less than reasonable prices.

You are 5 min drive to San Gimignano, a wonderful village with great views,good shopping for souvenirs from the region,many hand painted ceramic souvenirs.

Stella and her mother made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2010

My wife and I stayed at this Agriturismo for 2 weeks .

We have been here before and enjoyed it greatly .It lived up to all our expectations.

The acommodation is typical tuscan,spotlessly clean and very comfortable with good sized rooms with all self catering facilities. All rooms have panoramic views looking over the vineyards to San gimignano in the distance. This view is amazing and has to be one the best ever.

Their is plenty of outside space with tables and a lovely swimming pool with sun loungers.

We were self catering but you can have breakfast provided .

The family who own this are really friendly and cannot do enough to make your stay relaxing. They are a great help in planning your routes to the various towns and have lots of information re the main tourest destinations ,such as San Gimingnano, which is a short drive away and others in the area.

We used this place as a base for travel mainly by car but also by train from nearby stations.

This is such relaxing place . They also sell wine and olives at the vineyard

We will go back again when we are in the area.

It started with the warmest greating imaginable. The Stella the hostess and her whole family greeted us when we arrived late - they were worried we had gotten lost. From then on, it was all great. The location perfect. Olive trees, beautiful pool, gorgeous views of San Gimignano, walks and great food nearby. They have breakfast overlooking the valley and towers of San Gimignano and if you want to eat in your kitchen, they take orders for all kinds of different breads and other items which you order the night before and is on your doorstep the next mornig, freshly baked at a nearby bakery. The rooms were clean, the family great, the location perfect, you can't go wrong.

We stayed at Il Girasole when the hotel we had planned to stay at was full, what a blessing. Great hosts, wonderful views and excellant price. Included a nice breakfast and a welcoming bottle of wine. We used the property as a home base for driving around Tuscany with San Gimignano being only a few kilometers away. I'll be back. P.S. Girasole is sunflower in Italian.
