Be careful if you are trying to be close to San Gimignano - this hotel is in the village of Castel San Gimignano, 20 minutes drive away. The advert for the hotel in Booking dot com is a bit misleading, to say the least. You need a car, as many people have pointed out. The location of the hotel is... More

We spent 3 nights here and it was a perfect base for exploring Tuscany. Castel San Gimignano is a small town about 20 minutes from San Gimignano. You'll want a car if staying here, as your only other option to visit other areas is by bus. There's free parking at the hotel. Our room was large and clean, with a... More

We have just spent five nights at the hotel La Volpaie in Castel San Gimignano, and we loved the hotel, the location and the atmosphere. The village is quiet, on a convenient road but surrounded by fields planted in vines and olives. The hotel is bright, modern and sparklingly clean. It's within a few kilometers on many major Tuscan sights... More

Definitely our favourite hotel anywhere. We found it by chance in 1999 and came back every year for 10 years in a row. Circumstances meant there was a gap then of 7 years but we were so glad to be back. The keywords are - welcome, relaxation and breakfast. You won't find better anywhere in Italy and beyond. A superb... More

What a perfect little hotel. Firstly I must add that you need to have a car, you are in a small village. The hotel has a lovely feel to it, and the overall cleanliness is fantastic. Clearly run by enthusiastic owners who are the perfect hosts. We booked via Expedia, which when we arrived gave us a regular room. It... More

For us - 1 couple plus a single adult - all WASP - very good. We had just completed a group tour based out of the fabulous Colle di Val d' Elsa and had stayed at the Palazzo San Lorenzo. Pool was delicious (but we're Canadian so maybe we like it colder - just kidding). We had a rental car... More

Eight of us recently spent three nights at this hotel. The rooms are fine, the breakfasts beautiful and the pool much more pleasant than I expected. There is only one restaurant in the village, so an extended stay might be a bit limited unless you are happy to drive at night. All in all we felt quite affectionate about the... More

This was indeed a gem. We thoroughly enjoyed the country atmosphere of hotel le Volpaie. The owners take great pride in presenting a wonderful breakfast. The owners are also very hospitable. I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.

We have selected the hotel based upon prior reviews and we were very happy with the choice. We had the room with a terrace looking towards the scenery. With the help of great weather, we started each day looking out and marveling. The room was good sized, while the shower was rather small. Breakfast was excellent and the owner very... More
