We stayed for a week in June 2010. The weather was excellent - sunny all week. The apartment buildings and gardens were extremely well kept. The apartmnents and gardens had picture postcard views to San Gimignano and over the local vineyards. Staying arounf the pool and gardens was very peaceful, and the journeys to San Gimignano, Siena, and the local countryside and towns quick and easy (and great veiws thrown in). The housekeeper and gardner were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the the many things that bite, particularly in the night. Bring plenty of insect repellent and anti itching cream.
