Good Pool Breakfast Not so good Noise in the mornings if your room is near kitchen! Bed mattress very soft No safe in the room Overall a bit tired - I thought it would be better based on the reviews in trip advisor . The Suffolk were friendly helpful but I couldn't help thinking that place needs a refresh

Bis repetita placent. This is the second review of this person, for the same stay, same name, same tittle, same review. Despite the Tripadvisor's policy forbids it and despite our communication to Tripadvisor it remains published. So if you are interested by the answer look at the other one !

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The rooms were nicely sized and very clean. The staff was extremely friendly and the breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed buying local wine and snacks from the reception and sitting by the pool relaxing after visiting local hill towns like Volterra and Siena, which were an easy 30-45 minutes away. Our only...

Loved the villa and the People running it. It was exactly where I wanted to be located in Tuscany with a spectacular view all around. We are so happy we found it and stayed there. If I ever get the opportunity to go again i would stay thre again.

We were looking for a place centrally located in Tuscany that has basic amenities and was suitable for small children. The only other requirement we had was a pool. We stumbled across Antico Borgo il Cardino and couldn't be happier. The location is great - a secluded, large property a few minutes from San Gimignano and centrally located between Siena,...

Very good location for relaxing holiday in the Tuscan countryside, complete with 5 star pool area.

Really good staff, friendly, secure, good breakfast, pool is good opportunity after all day, really very clean room. The only think that I was not sure our room type.

“We combined two rooms (24 and 26) on the first floor with a central kitchen. Very practical for a family. I am no sure that other appartments have the possibility to communicate. They seem more interesting for couples and families with older children.”
