Great position up on hill opposite San Gimingnano old town. Breakfast was served in a separate building next door which was a little tight on space but you could sit outside for breakfast if you wished. We missed not being able to have toast at breakfast. Room divided opinion - whilst it was beautifully rustic there was a damp smell... More

Stayed earlier in the week in a similar augoroturism with views of the Val D'Orcia valley. We preferred the views from here, they were just incredible. Such a lovely atmosphere here. We walked into San Gim town on a scorching day, it was hard work (about 40 minutes with stops) down a lovely trail. There is a pizzeria 2 minutes... More

Thanks to Trip advisor and many recommendations within, we decided to take a short stay here. A perfect choice. From the minute we were led into our room and opened our windows, we were stunned with the beauty of San Gimignano town and the vineyards dotting the hillyards in the distance. This B & B would have to have one... More

I was sorry to be staying just one night at this stunning hotel. The walk through the woods into town was delightful, although a good torch is required to get back in the dark. The large, light and comfortable room had a great view of the town, the pool area was beautiful and peaceful. Check in was welcoming, although they... More

The views of San Gimignano are magnificent and the staff & owners delightful people. Just a perfect Podere with large room, delicious breakfasts & great wifi. It is a beautiful walk to town and the pool is fabulous. Very good value for money and I would not stay anywhere else in this location. It is outstandanding.

We were enchanted with Podere Sant'Elena from the moment we turned up the little lane to find the lovely B & B nestled on the hilltop. We sat on the terrace that has the most amazing view, every morning with coffee and evening with wine. It was the end of May and the fireflies were out, what a treat to... More

We stayed for a week in this lovely B&B. Our hosts Barbara & Elaine could not be more helpful. The room was quite spacious with an em-suite shower room. Everything was immaculately clean and well presented. We had a great view of the pool area. Breakfast set you up for the day, with a very wide selection of different foods.... More

This is a perfect location for exploring the neighbourhood, especially San Gimignano. The breakfast is nice, you can have it inside and outside. Parking is safe and the staff attitude is very nice. if you have any concerns or questions, they help you. I will never forget their hospitality and the view from my room overlooking the “ancient Manhattan”! :-)... More

We returned yesterday from a nine night stay and I could have stayed so much longer. The location is wonderful and the accommodation clean and comfortable and the views amazing. For the staff nothing was too much trouble and they were all lovely and so friendly we felt so welcome. The home made pastries are delicious and to sit in... More
