“Good location to explore Tuscay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stayed here 4 nights. A converted farm run by a family. Basic accommodation but real Tuscany. The breakfast is simple fare but OK to start the day. The property is fairly remote, so you need a car (and SatNav) to get there. It's 5 minutes from Poggibonsi from where we took trains to Florence and Siena (free parking at the station). San Gimignano is only a short car ride away. We ate one evening in San Gimi and twice in Poggibonsi - all very good.

I had a fantastic 3 night stay at this B&B. Alessandro is a fantastic host and couldn't have been more helpful. He was great at providing local maps and general information about the area. My room was nice and clean with a lovely countryside view. The B&B is in a nice quiet location. It's easy to get to the main Florence - Siena motorway but there's also some great views on the road up to Barberino Val d'Elsa itself. It's a great place to explore the Chianti area from. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to go back next year.

Room Tip: See my pictures of the twin room with a countryside view.

The beds are very comfy, but there is no real housecleaning , they made our bed but that was all , no clean towels for the next day, wi fi is iffy as well. Breakfast was toast and cake, coffee and juice. There is air conditioning in the rooms, and the shower is very small, there is no soap only packets of soap. So plan if you are staying here.

Room Tip: There is a train that takes you into florance, the cost is 25euro both ways. But you need to drive t...
