The best view over the valley. A true Tuscan scene. Good swimming pool,breakfast was ok. Very quite location a few klm out of town San Giminano which has a castle theme. Great to explore and shop and eat.
Room was small for a triple
Good pool and stunning views of San Gimignano. Rooms comfortable and very clean.
The hotel really is as prettily located as it seems on the pictures. The swimming pool (deep enough for diving) has the most amazing view of San Gimignano. If you're up for it, and don't mind the heat, there's a road next to the wine fields leading to the city after about 20 minutes walk. Don't forget to bring water. The podere has a good parking place, nice breakfast served every morning and each room has its own little table and chairs outside to sit in.
I had expected two things, which turned out to be incorrect. They do not produce their own wine on-site (although they have bottles from nearby vineyards for sale) and there are no cooking facilities where you can prepare your meals (which is common in other agriturismos). Your pretty much only choice for dinner is the nearby restaurant (which turned out to be excellent though), unless you take a cab/drive to San Gimignano. The lady who was hosting when we were there didn't understand English, but was very nice and patient in trying to grasp my very limited Italian. This was a nice agriturismo, but I still feel the ratings here at booking.com are rather overrated.
The location of the hotel was perfect, being outside the tourist area of San Gimignano, but having views of the lovely old town. It was quiet, peaceful and the staff were helpful and pleasant.
Not given enough bath towels - we had to ask for more.
Perfect in all its ways! Very helpfull staff
Staff isn't always around or sometimes hard to find
The location is across the valleys from San Gigmignano and the views are stupendous. There is a restaurant just down the road from there a nd we ate there almost every nght . The food was good and the people were very friendly.
I found the management not very congenial, perhaps the language was a problem..
The view of San Gimignano was incredible! The patio area and pool were very inviting, and made for a relaxing stay.
The hotel is in a lovely quiet location with a wonderful view over San Giminano. The breakfast was very enjoyable with a lovely selection of pastries and savoury local food. The weather was much warmer than we thought it would be so the swimming pool was a definite bonus staying at this hotel. There was a really good restaurant a short walk up the lane. The staff were very helpful.
Unfortunately the bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable
Location, breakfast, large pool
It is only a short drive from the main town and close enough to other areas to travel to by car
Our room was quite dark
