I stayed here in 2013. I was only going to stay for 1 night and I think I stayed for 4 nights. I wanted to stay here again in 2016 but it was booked. This is the best place to stay. Quiet, very quiet. The view is the best in the world. They make their own wine here and its... More

It's worth spending a little bit more for the rooms with an outdoor veranda. The view was unbelievable, and the weather was perfect. We visited in April, and I imagine that in the summer months when you can make use of the swimming pool it would be even more amazing. There is no television in the bedroom, but who needs... More

We stayed in this BnB for few days as we traveled around the Tuscany area. The hosts were an amazing couple and the breakfast was delicious! Since the rooms were located on a hilltop, you get the best view of San Gimignano and the beautiful vineyards. Would love to stay here again.

This is truly a hidden gem!!! The view of San Gimignano was absolutely incredible from this B and B location. The bed was firm and the room was absolutely spotless with a great shower and great water pressure. The morning breakfast was wonderful and truly an authentic Italian breakfast. The coffee was as much as you wanted, the fresh juice... More

Absolutely beautiful place, reasonable price. Only thing they should try to get working is wlan connection witch doesn't work almost at all. Of course there is beautiful view to look at rather then your phone, but when traveling we would have needed internet for planning.

This place was truly a Tuscan paradise. Beautiful views and gardens, swimming pool and hammock, 6 min drive (or scooter ride! Easy rentals are available in San Gimignano by a guy called Bellini bruno). The couple that run this place, Davide and Annalisa, are so incredibly nice, and they are happy to practise your Italian with you. I came here... More

If you are looking to escape to a quiet place in the Tuscan hillside with postcard views of the towers of San Gimignano than look no further than Podere Montese. A short drive from the historic town center, PM is the perfect contrast to the hectic pace of the tourist centers found throughout Tuscany. Davide and Analisa were wonderful hosts... More

When we arrived to Podere Montese, the sun was setting behind us and lighting up the towers of San Giminano. Once we got settled into the apartment, my husband turned to me and asked if I was certain that I'd gotten the rate right, because it didn't seem enough for such a great location and accommodation. The hosts were hands... More

At Podere Montese you will feel like you are at home! Podere Montese is a typical Tuscan stone house converted into a lovely, family-run B&B where guests feel at home. At the Podere, the day starts with a rich breakfast served on the terrace overlooking the valley opposite San Gimignano, situated only 2 km away.
