“Cozy farmhouse with amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

We loved the farmhouse. It was spacious and clean. It overlooked the hills of Tuscany. Amzaing!!! The pool was nice to unwind. San Gimignano was a nice little middle ages town. Some reviews of the town said it was flooded with tourism. I honestly thought the town was well preserved and not over crowded. It was closed to cars so the kids could run freely through the narrow streets.
The caretaker at the farmhouse was so helpful and hospitable. They served a modest continental breakfast for 7euro pp./a fair price. They sold his own EVOO. He also sold wines from his friends wine orchards. 6euro a bottle was a nice price. All in all this was a lovely stay and good value.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2009

After running away from a bad hotel we decided to basically drive around the San Gimignano area and find a good place to stay. We found this hidden place by coincidence and we loved it...
It has a great location over looking the San Gimignano towers... It's an old villa / farm renewed into a six room B&B / apartments. We had a good sized room with a large kitchen and one double bed. A little run down but by Italian standards it was in very good condition. Breakfast was a bit boring but for the 85 Euros we paid per night it was a great option and a good value. Lovely restaurant just up the street (again amazing view and the BEST Nutella Pizza you are EVER gonna eat!) and as it's a dead end street - the hotel is very quiet!
Very nice pool in the back of the B&B which we enjoyed a lot. Private free parking with closed gate at night. Being there felt really nice. a great central location for Tuscany: Sienna, Voltera etc
