If we could give Villa Alba six stars we would! The villa is very cute, the owner's loving touch is seen in everything, as everything is well kept and lovingly decorated. Piero and his family and help are very nice, caring people and they made our stay welcoming and fun. The swimming pool with the view of the hills was... More

Lovely decorated rooms and villa - all kept in a charming style. Great, helpful and warm staff. Swimming pool was clean, which we had sole use due to limited number of rooms. Close to town centre, so easy to eat out. Ask for Vinnyard tour.

My partner and I had such a fantastic time at Villa Alba in the beautiful town of San Gimignano. Piero and Simona were incredibly flexible with our check in times and made us feel so welcome. In addition, Eleonora gave us the best recommendations from where to get the best panoramic view of the Chianti region to her favourite places... More

Having booked a room for 2 nights at this property the date for our visit arrived. We drove for 4 hours with stops along the way. We had informed the owners, as they had requested, the time of our expected arrival. The villa, looking unkempt and unwelcoming, was locked. We called the number on the wall, the gentleman on the...

Good morning , we are very sorry for the inconvenient. We would like to explain our standard procedure, because in our opinion there have been misundertandings. We asked you if you booked, because we didn't know you and therefore you could be other clients without booking. The room and the bath were clean and the bed had been made. On... More

Piero and Simona were fantastic hosts, friendly and helpful. We could not fault the hotel, everywhere was spotless and the decor in the room and the breakfast room was charming. Probably one of the best value for money hotels we have ever stayed in, and would certainly make it our first choice if we go back to Tuscany. Can't speak... More

Everything about Villa Alba is beckoning: the gracious owners, the comfortable rooms, the incredible location outside the town walls, the well-tended gardens and pool, and the value. We want to return one day and highly recommend it.

Stayed 6 nights second last week of September. As previous reviewers have mentioned it's a short, safe walk to San Gimignano. Rooms are Clean, beds are comfortable. Great location for day trips to Siena, Volterra, Greve, Panzano etc. Always looked forward to the breakfasts!

Villa Alba was just what we expected on our trip too Tuscany, situated just outside the walled town of San Gimignano tastefully decorated rooms with ample space and a very nice garden and pool.

A wonderful B&B just outside the walls of San Gimignano. It's takes about 7 min to walk to SG. Everything at Villa Alba is done, decorated and cared for with love to small details that made us feel very comfortable and at home right away. The rooms are clean, the bathroom is modern. The garden is beautiful with enough space... More

Extended our stay to three nights in this wonderful villa due to its location, friendly staff and beautiful décor. It also gave the opportunity to take in all of the sites that the region had to offer. Breakfasts were a feast of the local fare and located in the old wine cellar downstairs. Swimming pool in the garden allowed you... More
