Great location, within a short walk to the old city of San Gimignano. Beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside from the terrace and poolside. After a week in Rome and three days in Florence, this was the best place I could have chosen to relax, soak up some rays and enjoy the pool. Staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms... More

Wow what a lovely hotel, we were welcomed and our bags were taken to our room straight away. We got to our room with a lovely bottle of white wine chilling in a ice bucket. The room is lovely and clean and freshly decorated and the view from our balcony is magical, over looking the pool and the countryside.

We had 2 rooms for 4 nights , one had a large balcony offering nice views over the pool and garden then out over the rolling hills, an especially nice way to watch the sun go down each day. Interior is clean and semi modern, we paid extra for parking inside the gate, pool and gardens well kept and maintained.... More

We booked a room for one night stay here in June and it was a pretty bad room (there was a small window at the top of the room which was out of reach for us to open so essentially there were no windows in the room... not sure how this is even allowed) so we were given the option... More

My wife and I stayed at the Relais for a week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. This is a relatively small hotel which is very friendly and the perfect location to explore San Gimignano with the town being only an easy 10 min walk. Our room although on the small side was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and with a large... More

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 boys) and stayed for 4 nights in a junior suite (room 201). The room is 2 areas, a master bedroom with double bed and desk, and seating area with a couch which converts into two single beds. When the single beds are folded out, there is very little room to walk... More

Very warm welcome and extremely friendly hotel. Short walk to San Gimignano. Would definitely stay here again. Lovely location overlooking the Tuscan hills. Room small but clean and with balcony. Breakfast with English tea and served on the terrace overlooking the garden was excellent.

A very well kept and managed hotel with a pool only 5 min walk from San Gimignano main gate. The room was smallish but very nice and clean, perfect for 3 nights. The balcony was large with the amazing view. Waiter service, most of the time at your sun bed. Pool very nice. Would definitely return to this hotel. San... More

Recently visited this lovely hotel. Ideal location only 5-10 mins walk to the stunning medieval town which even my disabled husband managed well. The hotel has large public areas for sitting and a restaurant and terrace for morning breakfasts.The terrace overlooks the swimming pool and garden and is definitely the best feature of the hotel.

What a beautiful hotel. Lovely communal spaces downstairs and a gorgeous room and balcony upstairs with breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside. Brilliant transportation links to Pisa and Florence with the culinary and architectural delights of San Gimignano on the doorstep. Loved our stay and only wish it could be been longer. We will definitely return in the near future... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Relais Santa Chiara is a charming and elegant hotel located in the heart of the rolling hills of Tuscany, between Florence and Sienna. The hotel looks over the splendid, peaceful countryside towards Volterra and is situated just 400 mt. below the city walls of San Gimignano, a town of fairy tales with its 14 medieval towers that testify to a fascinating past. In addition, the strategic location allows one to make day trips to all the major cultural and artistic sites of the surrounding area. The hotel offers 40 rooms, made up of 4 different room types either facing the rear garden or facing the splendid Tuscan countryside. Many rooms have beautiful balconies and our superior rooms have bath with hydromassage. All rooms have air-conditioning, digital TV with international channels, hair dryers and mini-bar. Other services include private parking, a meeting room with a capacity up to 60 persons, Mediterranean garden filled with olive and cypress trees that encompass the swimming pool, which includes a separate, heated mini pool with hydro massage and an inviting and well stocked bar serving an array of beverages and a variety of snacks and light meals. The breakfast is a complete buffet that will certainly satisfy the biggest morning appetite. In the summer breakfast and bar service are available outside on the terrace. Particular attention has been given to the hotel’s furnishings. Some of the most prestige materials make up the guest rooms, such as brier wood and national oak. The public areas breath an atmosphere that’s classic Tuscany. Florentine terracotta covers the lobby which is integrated with a colorful pastel marble mosaic. The famous Serena gray stone is another dominate element found throughout the hotel, like the reception desk and the grand fireplace. Activities available nearby are: walking itineraries departing from the hotel, guided tours of the historic centre, scooter rental, wine tasting (come with light lunch), cooking classes, tennis, horse riding and a 27 hole golf course 18 km away. ... more   less
