“Wonderful wedding weekend”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Spent 3 days and nights here for friends wedding. Amazing setting. Clean and comfortable accommodation. Amazing views from the pool. Breakfasts were delicious and fresh. Wedding meal was great. Staff were friendly and very accommodating. We stayed in apartment. Was lovely but beware of the hill- extremely steep walk back up to the main house and no lighting at all at night. Didn't bother us but could be a problem for some. Dream like location for a wedding. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: If you have no car - get a taxi to stop off at a shop to stock up on water and snacks - only main me...

Spent 5 days in this beautiful vineyard. Food great wine great and lovely staff. Only one thing could make the experience better and that would be candle lighting for dinner instead of the LED spot lights. And the pools could be slightly warmer. Otherwise perfect. We flew to Firenze and hired a car. Only 55 mins to the vineyard. Our friends had there wedding reception at PA and the whole event was magical! We'll definitely be visiting again.

Stunning, Rustic charm is what this place is all about, the scenery absolutely takes your breath away , and when your looking out upon it whilst soaking in the private pool even better!
The farmhouse itself is pure Tuscan style, very clean and exactly what you would want if you were looking for authentic Tuscany.
The staff are all very friendly and can not do enough for you, the food and wine all just make it even better!
I can see myself returning time and time again I loved it that much

We had a wonderful time at this agriturismo. We seriously don't understand what people complain about. First of all Poderi Arcangelo is not an hotel so you can't expect hotel quality. In our opinion it's better because you have all the privacy. Breakfast was good ( remember Italians normally have sweets for breakfast if anything at all), but here there was much more. Some fruits will complete this breakfast. Dinner was authentically Tuscan and prepared with care and love!! The wine is very good and Elena and colleagues were always very helpful! The whole discussion about being closer to Certaldo then to San Giminagno is a non-discussion. When you choose Tuscany, you know you will need a car. It's a 15 minute drive to San Giminagno en 10 minutes to Certaldo.
We had a problem with the tap, this broke off, Sandra was right there to help and at the end of the day, it was fixed.
We will definitely return to Poderi Arcangelo, it was a fantastic week!

Have you ever dreamt of staying in a house on top of a hill with a view of rows and rows of grapevines as far as the eye can see?
Have your your own private swimming pool. Be served authentic multicourse Italian food and top wine made by the their own winery?

Then this place is for you.

Me and my husband were very thrilled to visit Tuscany and especially San Gimignano. We chose Poderi Arcangelo after reading the many good reviews. But we found many things to be disappointing after all.
First of all the farmhouse is a 15 minutes drive from the actual city of San Gimignano and there are no signs to find it so be sure to get directions before you start. We arrrived around 5-6 in the afternoon and it was 2 degrees outside!! We were welcomed with a smile. Soon after that we were to be informed about something that i have never heard before and i have been working in tourism for the last 11 years! Heat was not included in the price!!! When i expressed my surprise to the woman at the reception the warm smile became a cold one with a short reply which was 'it is mentioned in your reservation confirmation". At first I thought i hadn't studied it much and maybe it was my mistake. Of course i checked and it was not mentioned anywhere! The problem was that the confirmation i had was in my mother language which is Greek so there wasn't much i could do to prove my point! We were given a scap paper which mentioned a handwritten number of the meter at the time of our check in and were told that upon our check out they would check the meter again and we would pay the difference by 4 euros per cubic meter! As you would guess we never saw the meter and of course who knows how much would be consummed per hour!!!
We were given directions and we showed ourselves to our appartment. It was a lovely two spaced appartment, kitchen-living room and the bedroom. Fortunately the heat was already on and both rooms had a pleasant warmth. That was the initial feeling. Because when we took off scarfs and jackets and relaxed we realized that those spacious rooms could not be heated sufficiently. The heat was coming from something like an aircondition which had a slow air flow with medium temperature! In addittion to that there were only two light quilts available probably proper only for the chill Tuscan summer!! In fear of what we might be asked to pay we turned off the heat and slept with socks and jumpers!!!!
Nevertheless Wi-Fi was available and the view from the bedroom was nice. The next morning we had another surprise. The appartment has a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge, stove, dishes etc. But! There is a sign saying "You are not expected to use the kitchen for cooking but if you wish to do so please contact us!!! Of course we had no desire of cooking but we thought it was hilarious!!I regret so much of not taking a picture of that sign!
We spent most of our time outside the appartment and we only stayed for 2 nights so i don't have much more details to offer. A slight renovation in the bathroom wouldn't hurt!
Upon check out we were given the number of the heat meter and paid 11 euros for approximately 5 hours of use. Nobody asked if we enjoyed our stay or if we had any issues. We paid our bill and took our way back.
Maybe if we visited this place in the spring and there were no heat issues we would have enjoyed it better. But we didn't. And my opinion is that if the owners wish to rent this place during the winter they should so some serious changes. Improvement of the customer service would not be a bad idea either. If you are looking for a picturesque spot this is the place for you. If you are looking for good and honest service and facilities look a liitle harder.

Hello,
I am sorry that you had a not perfect stay..
Our property is located 6 km from San Gimignano (10 minutes by car) and 3 Km from Certaldo (5 minutes by car).
Regarding the Heating is excluded in the case of booking of the apartments. If you check the description of the apartment is reported.
In each apartment there is a temperature control so you can manage it yourself. it does not say that you should not use the kitchen. At times, the apartment is rented to people who have only booked the room. In that case the use of the kitchen is not inlcuded but it is available.
For that is written to ask the front desk.
I hope you come back to visit us so we can bring you even more enjoyable.
Sincerely
Elena

Nice property, small hotel nestled among the vineyards and olive groves, amazing 360 panaramic views..great pool.. the food is reasonable quality and price, their own wine is quite good. The dinner meal is a bit restrictive in that there is only one 8pm sitting. We enjoyed the location being in the dead centre of Chianti wine country and 20 minutes away from the train station.(we did a day trip to Florence to see David and the Uffuzi Gallery, which is an hour by train) A great place to use as your base for daily wine tours and visiting the regional towns. Would definitely stay there again.
