We stayed for 5 nights. The hotel is well situated just outside the village of San Gimignano. On our visit to the Tuscany region, it was a ideal place to stay.
The hotel is very clean and well organised. The room was for us a little too small for 4 people.
Breakfast is ok, but every day the same. I hoped to see appearing something else after 5 days.
We took a few times dinner at the hotel and the quality very good.
Only negative point is the old garden keeper who's driving with an lawnmower all day, even when he have to do 10 meters. At 8am he's passing every day next to our room. It's also the same garden keeper who's making comments when you make some noise in the swimming pool or when you start the motor of your car one mimut before leaving to get the heat out of the car...

Dear Sirs,

we thank you very much for having taken the time to write down your most appreciated review.
We are pleased about your positive comments on our location, the cleaniness, good organization
and very good way of cooking. The room you had is in fact not so big; for longer stays we suggest a different room type. Breakast is a buffet, and in our opinion is very rich: croissant, cakes, buiscuits, eggs and bacon, caprese, fresh tomatos and cucumbers, fresh fruits,ham and salami, cheese, jougurth, fresh bread, toast bread, butter and marmelade, fruit juice, etc.
Regarding the gardner you mention, he is the founder and builder of the place, he works very
hard all day to keep the park clean and tidy and he does a little bit of supervising the swimming-pool users too.
When he came to you while you were by the pool, he only wanted to draw your attention to the
fact that diving could be very dangerous, since the water is rather shallow.
We hope to have you back as our guests sometime in the future and wish you all the best
The Reception

Excellent vacation in a quiet and romantic destination, my kid never felt better, running free around. A key spot for travelling anywhere in Toscany. Lovely people and owners. Fantastic food and service. You cannot find better even if you search around.

Room Tip: This is not meant to be SPA destination, all the rest you are looking for, you can find.

We stayed at Hotel Casolare le Terre Rosse on route to visit family. We enjoyed it so much we booked for our return journey. The hotel is family run and nothing is too much trouble. A nice touch is that on arrival we were shown the breakfast area, restaurant and then taken to our room. We were stayed in room 76 which was on the first floor and overlooked the swimming pool and gardens. The room was of a good size but I did miss a long mirror. Safe in room which has a key that you need to obtain from reception. Hairdryer in bathroom. Free one hour Wifi but if you need more time I think is was 2 Euros for 24 hours. The swimming pool was very clean with sun loungers. The garden area was very big with more loungers, tables and table tennis.
We had breakfast outside. There was the usual choice inc cereals, coldmeats, eggs. We also had dinner in the courtyard restaurant. Three courses for 70 Euros including a bottle of wine and the food was lovely.
We had a lovely stay at this hotel and would love to return soon.

We are from UK but we live in Italy. This was our third trip to the outstandingly beautiful Gan Gimigano & Voltera historic area in Tuscany and we chose this hotel again to go and see Andrea Bocelli's summer concert ...get's better every time.
Our friends from UK came over and stayed with us...&...loved this place.
Normally we choose to eat out...hotel food is not normally brilliant. We were tired one evening and ate at the hotel in their enclosed open courtyard & were really surprised how good it was and great value. So we ate again several times..their wild boar and Tuscany goat's cheese was outstanding.
Happy to recomment it

PS : ....no we are not related to the owners :-) !!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a Deluxe facing the pool ...if you like a bigger room....worth the little extra !!

stayed 5 nights in August
the hotel is in good location for exploring Toscana and in proximity to the beautiful San Gimignano.
we were family of 4 and stayed in the Quersia apartment.
the apartment is located 100 m from the hotel btt the big downside is that the apartment is just next to the road and has no view at all and suffer from noise from the road.
the apartment is in urgent need of a facelift
the batrooms smelly!
the aircondition units are very small and not enough for hot days in August
the hotel pool and gardens are lovely

to conclude - I saw much finer properties in the area and would not warmly recommend.

Dear Sirs,

we thank you very much for your nice review and are pleased you had a nice stay with us.
Upon check-out you praised so much our resort and told us you had such a lovely time
in the apartment, that we actually inferred everything was perfect and you had nothing to
complain about.
First of all, we need to tell you that the distance from the hotel to the depandance is only 30
meters, not 100. It is true that the flats are situated along the road, but this road is in the
countryside, no lorries or buses ever drive along it, and as far as private cars or scooters
concerns, so it is really a very limeted traffic. All the bedrooms are anyway in the
back of the house, facing the hotel, so there is no possibility to hear the noise from the road,
if any. Regarding the smell in the bathrooms, like any other kind of little problems that are
usual in flats, if you had told us at the very beginning, 10 minutes later the problem
would have been solved enabling you to stay in the apartment without any bad smell.
The air conditioners in the apartments have been designed in order to keep them as cool as
possible. Of course you have to consider that in the presence of an extraordinary temperature
outside, the air conditioning inside does its best to cool the rooms.
We are anyway pleased you enjoied our park and swimming pool, which make our resort
one of the most beloved and visited in the area
Kindest regards The Reception

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful hotel. The staff was very friendly. Because of the wideness of the garden you can find very calm places if you want. If you want to look for a goog hotel in the middel of the Toscana - tjis is the best choice.
Everything else is truly perfect.
