“A warm and welcoming arrival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

We were warmly greeted by Elisa at Hotel Le Renaie who was very helpful throughout our whole stay, as were the other staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff very helpful with advice of the area and also providing us with weather forecasts for the area. We had a room with balcony view which was lovely especially in the evening where you could overlook the villages and the fantastic scenery. Meals in the Hotel were great. Would definitely stay again and the trip was made even more memorable as my partner proposed to me on our last evening at La Griglia in San Gimignano and, yes, I accepted! Thank you Hotel Le Renaie for a lovely, warm and welcoming stay.

Room Tip: Room with balcony view is advisable.

Just lovely! Although the menu didn't change that much between 2012 & 2013 it was truly fantastic!!! The lamb and pork chops, grilled veg, T-bone steak and the wild boar ragout were heavenly! The staff are great and so friendly. Very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel. Fantastic location too. Beautiful.

Dear guest,
thank you so much for the nice post and fantastic feedback. The menu is not changed too much during the years. Yes it is correct, we prefer to maintain our traditional recipes and be able to offer a good taste of a genuine Tuscan food. It’s very kind of you to recommend our hotel and we will be very happy to see you again. A huge hello from Le Renaie Hotel!

After being in bustling cities for the past week, it was a breath of fresh air (literally) to stay in a quiet, rural hotel surrounded by beautiful gardens, flowers, & landscaping. This hotel was very charming - our room/bath were very clean, spacious, & decorated in colors that had a way of soothing your soul. The staff was very friendly & spoke good English. This hotel had a very good restaurant that left us with full & satisfied tummies - amazing food! Breakfast on their terrace was tranquil - surrounded by the quiet of the countryside & the flowers. Good variety of food & good tasting food! The location was nice, be sure to follow the directions on the hotel's website to ensure you don't get lost. We were minutes away from San Gimignano & about 1 hour 30 minutes away from Pisa - so an ideal location to explore Tuscany & the coastal areas. Would absolutely stay here again!

Great hospitality and help, super clean rooms/facilities -- and a great restaurant to boot. I can not say enough about the friendliness and support of the Le Renaie staff on our first visit to Italy. Walter, Baddia, and others outdid themselves on our behalf. What a relaxing and enjoyable time. Would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Lovely hotel. Friendly and very helpful staff. Food excellent but could do with an extra coffee machine at breakfast. Great base for touring but be aware there are no other places to eat or drink in reasonable walking distance.

Dear guests,
we thank you so much for the nice post on this web site.
You have been very kind with all of us and are happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Other places to get food in a short walking distance? No, you are right. Pancole, where we are located, is a very small village in the country side and generally you do not find many places. It is part of a life in the country area, tranquillity, easy life but less opportunities. San Gimignano offers all the needed services, reachable by car better as it is 5 kilometres away. A big ciao from Hotel Le Renaie

We spent a week here from 7 September 2013 and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. We specifically wished to see the Tuscan countryside as well as Florence, Sienna and San Gimignano and picked this hotel as it was ideally located to ensure we didn't have to travel too far to any destination.

The hotel is located in the village of Pancole amid olive groves and vineyards and only a few minutes in the car from San Gimignano. It was very quiet and it was a pleasure to return there after a day out to relax by the pool or in the delightful gardens with a good book and a cold drink.

Our room suited our purposes (although we would opt for a room with a balcony on a return visit) with good ensuite facilities and the fridge proved useful. Air conditioning ensured a comfortable temperature and the cleaning staff were very efficient.

The hotel restaurant advertises typical Tuscan fare and the menu was perfectly sufficient for our purposes with the food being well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. All the staff we met were both very helpful and pleasant although we felt that service could be a little slow at times in the evening and an extra member of staff would have helped with this.

Overall we really enjoyed our Tuscan holiday and no doubt Le Renaie contributed to this enjoyment. We are happy to recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Tuscany and would certainly return ourselves if in the area again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony

We spent 3 nights here on our honeymoon as we toured Italy. The staff, food, and accommodations were wonderful. This quiet getaway was the ideal Tuscan experience. Located in an olive grove, with a pool and balconies in most of the rooms, we truly felt the peace and quiet of the area. Located a 5 minute drive from San Gimignano, and 10 minutes to the train to Florence in Certaldo, it was a great location.

The restaurant at the hotel is quintessential Tuscan food with great service. We tried a few other places during our stay, but ended up at the restaurant each night, as it was some of the best food we had on our honeymoon.

We also did a wine tasting at Cesani down the road (10 minute walk) for about 10 Euros each. It was a great experience, good deal and nice and close to the hotel!

The only challenge were the beds were not very comfortable. They were very hard, but everything was impeccably clean. I would definitely recommend the hotel!

Room Tip: make sure to get a private balcony - they have a full table, umbrella, chairs and loungers!

Dear guest,
thank you so much for the nice words you used to describe our hotel and the area around. The train station at Certaldo is a very good suggestion for everyone would visit Florence, staying in the area of Pancole.
Our chef Sandra, Leonetto’s daughter, would especially thank you, his hard work has received a right compensation with your introduction to the restaurant services.
I invited Cesani to read your comments, they appreciate as well. I’m very happy when we are able all together, to get the guests in touch with the taste of Tuscany. That’s the real journey.
I’ sorry for the bad sleeping, usually the people prefer a hard mattress, instead of soft.
All of us at Le Renaie, we look forward to meet you again, in the future. I promise we will provide a soft bed for you!
