It was not that simple to find the way to this "podere" which is some km far from the center; The last part is a dirty road which was in pretty bad conditions after the rain of the last days. The resort is in a very green area, quite and relaxing. It is connected to san Gimignano by a not-... More

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.

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... More

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,... More

Planning our trip to Italy; for 2 families for months and it was so worth it, to stay here at Podere Bellavista! We loved the views, the well kept and large manicured lawn, where the kids could run and play and the beautiful pool and deck overlooking a stunning Tuscany backdrop. We loved all of our lovely and unique accommodations.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Podere Bellavista from a very warm welcome on arrival, Virginia couldn't do enough to ensure our comfort. On the second night Virginia cooked a Tuscany meal for us which was delicious, serving many homemade produce. Location is perfect to relax in with outstanding views of San Gimignano and the surrounding vineyards and olive groves.... More

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
