A perfect place to relax. Near to San Gimignano! The towers of San Gimignano rise up like a medieval Manhattan. Very friendly service team. Hope we visit it again 🙂 Good breakfast with homemade cakes variations. With wlan in the rooms and outside.

The accommodation is located on a wonderful hillock with a view overlooking the historical medieval town of San Gimignano. The staff were extremely courteous, very helpful and always ready for the guest's requests. The food was scrumptious and the atmosphere of the whole dining hall was relaxing. The swimming pool besides the main building was quite spacious, cleaned daily and... More

We can only recommend this place to stay. It is less than 5 minutes by car from San Gimignano. It has great views to the Tuscan hills. It has a nice pool, even though it was a still cold in May for a swim. It has one of the best and friendly staff we encountered in the places that we... More

We were looking for a central location in Tuscany to stay for 5 nights in the "off-season" and were delighted to find this beautiful B&B open.

Every aspect of our stay in this house was fine- large well-furnished, well-lit rooms and very welcoming hosts. Luggage racks would have been helpful but they seem to be very rare in Italy. It was great experience to stand amid vineyards seeing San Gimignano in the distance. The breakfast buffet was very complete. A short walk up the country lane... More
