We booked this place as part of our tour of Tuscany which consisted mostly of hotel and B&B stays. As such we booked a room rather than one of the apartments since we planned to eat our meals out and felt that a room which was less expensive and included breakfast would best meet our needs. This was a BIG...

We have just returned from a three nights stay and had booked a cottage on the property.it's a lovely property, with great views of the Tuscan countryside and San gimignano. Anna is a lovely host and has very tastefully decorated the rooms. Everything was perfect about Bella vista and we will definitely recommend this to our friends.

We stayed in the apartment for a few days in September. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable, hot showers, separate little bathroom with wash basin. The bed was comfortable. There was a little area to eat outside and the surrounding countryside was beautiful. There is a restaurant opposite the apartment which serves good food. We ate breakfast in the...

We'd been talking for years about coming back, and it lived up to how we remembered it. The view is outstanding, and the pool makes the most of it, giving an unobstructed view of the Tuscan countryside. We had one of the villas, which was rather compact and unsophisticated, but very clean and equipped thoughtfully with whatever one might want,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Podere Bellavista is an old refurbished country house, in the middle of Tuscany,consisting of a manor house and two cottages sorrounded by wide meadows, vineyards and oliveyards. Situated on the slope of the hill opposite San Gimignano (Siena), Podere Bellavista offers a panoramic view of the old town and of the stunning hilltop skyline of towers. Podere Bellavista offers accommodations in both rooms and apartments, to satisfy the different needs of guests, who have the chance to join us in our charming dining room on the first floor of the manor house and feast upon our genuine Tuscan cuisine (only for the evening). Each apartment is self-catering and available with a private, outdoor area with chairs and tables, and a personal barbecue to eat, relax, and enjoy the beautiful view. Guests can enjoy wide meadows equipped with sun beds, lounge chairs, and tables, and an outdoor swimming pool, that faces San Gimignano and the surrounding hills complete with patio, sun beds, and bath towels. Due to its location, only three kilometres far from San Gimignano which can be reached by foot through a country path (1,5 kilometres), and only 700 metres from the road to Volterra, Podere Bellavista is the ideal place to discover Tuscany and its many treasures. ... more   less
