We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 6 nights and found the pictures online were nothing like this place. The room was extremely dark and it wasn't a place you could relax in, but the grounds were beautiful. Definitely not a place to stay in in the off-season. The breakfast was good, but it was the same every day - basic with croissants, coffee, cold cereal, hard boiled eggs and some fruit. The free WiFi they offer is only in the breakfast area and not in the rooms or outside near the pool area where it's nice to sit, so that was disappointing. We found the kitchen lacked a lot of basic utensils for cooking and so ended up eating out while we were there. The people are very nice, but only speak Italian so it was difficult to communicate. Note there are no washing machines on-site and there is only a self-service option in downtown San Gigmignano.
