This is a wonderful hotel, perhaps a bit more laid back and with a lower staff/guest ratio and therefor less efficient than hotels like the Sirenuse at Positano or the Villa San Michele near Florence. but it is still a lovely place to stay, and a good base for exploring this part of Tuscany. My wife and I stayed here ,with our children, for four nights in June and we had a wonderful time. It is about a mile outside San Gimignano and some rooms have good views of the town and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. You need a car. We were told that the town was 15/20 minutes stroll but it took us more like 40!
All the rooms we saw were very pleasant and the tower room suite is exceptional with panoramic views. The house keeping is absolutely first class. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is good to excellent ,although they were short staffed and dinner took for ever, but for once we really didn't mind.
There is a quite large, beautifully situated, swimming pool with a bar where they serve light meals etc , this is the hub of the hotel during the day, very relaxing. They don't have a gym, but offer massage and beauty treatments.
