We absolutely loved our stay at Del Giglio and were very sad to leave. Our hosts Roberto and Laura were adorable and lovely. The restored house is beautiful and cosy. They have just two rooms so ideal for a family of 4 or two couples. You basically get the whole house at your disposable including a kitchenette, sitting room and a patio where you can have breakfast overlooking Casa Emma winery. Breakfasts were yummy with high quality ingredients. Can't wait to return someday with our son. Well done!

Absolutely wonderful. Beautiful house, perfect location and wonderful hosts. We have resolved to come back as soon as we can. This is a great place from which to explore Tuscany, and Chianti in particular. To have access to so much room, and with the garden and beautiful views, even in poor weather we could just relax and enjoy the place. Roberto and Laura are so enthusiastic and dedicated to making a stay as full and pleasant as they can.

Room Tip: Only two - both great.

What perfect hosts. Del Giglio is more than the photos you see. You could not fault the B&B and the exceptional help from Roberto & Laura. They told us of all the perfect places to see. We were restricted in not having our own transport (which would be the best way to see this region). But were fortunate that Roberto did pick us up from the Train in Florence and did show us some sights on the way to and from the station. Even the sharing of excellent wines from their own wine cellar. Breakfast was exceptional. Thank you Roberto & Laura.

We spent 7 great days at this B&B. The location in San Donato was wonderful (ideally you need a car to get around easily). We enjoyed visiting a number of small towns/villages in the area. Laura and Roberto were excellent hosts, giving us plenty of help and advice as to places to see and how to get to them. The B&B was spotless, very comfortable and quiet, with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The village of San Donato had a number of eating places which were within easy walking distance of the B&B. Access to a kitchen was extremely useful and well-equipped. If we ever get back to Tuscany, we would definitely stay here again.Thanks Laura & Roberto for a great time.

Room Tip: This B&B only had two rooms, both of which were excellent.

Truly, the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed, anywhere. Del Giglio is to be found in the small medieval village of San Donatta di Poggio which is about a 30 minute drive from central Florence. From the welcome to the wave goodbye we felt like visiting friends. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and comfortable and not only do you get your bedroom with far-reaching views over the countryside, but a large lounge/dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen to make snacks and keep the all-important Italian wine chilled. Down some winding stairs there is also a small cellar where you can help yourself to wine and pay Laura at the end of the week. Breakfasts are amazing. No packet jam or butter here. Each day was slightly different but featured mozzarella with prosciutto, fruit, fresh pineapple and melon, breads, focaccia, cheese, tomatoes, butter, pastries and the most wonderful coffee complete with frothy milk! If this could be topped, you have the view from the terrace where you take your breakfast. Small, but lovely garden complete with 3 tortoises who run - yes, run - to eat any apricots which fall from the tree. Laura and Beatrice are perfectionists and it shows in everything about Del Giglio. We were there for 9 days (bliss) and each day they were there with the tourist maps and guides to show us the easiest way to get to our chosen destination. A busy 9 days crammed to the full with wonderful places to see and how wonderful to have such a peaceful and comfortable home to return to at the end of a busy day. I almost wish I didn't have to tell you all about this little gem as I don't want Del Giglio to be full next time I visit, but it would be unfair to keep this secret place to myself.

Room Tip: There are 2 rooms available. We stayed in a twin room (can also be made into a king) and there is 1...

We hesitate to say how great this B&B is because we are concerned it will become so popular we won't be able to get a resavation again.The two bedrooms share a living room and kitchen.
Beatrice and her mother Laura are fantastic people and made us feel so welcome. The breakfasts each morning prepared for us was always fresh and wonderful. Also, the views just added to the ambiance of the house. We can't wait to return some day. See www.delgiglio.it for pictures

We stayed in this bed and breakfast for 3 nights this autumn, it was lovely, great views from the room, air con, lovely ensuite bathroom. Nice breakfast in the morning, good value for money. Laura, her husband and daughter were all lovely, very helpful for tips of where to go, and san donato in poggio was a nice, quaint town with a few good restaurants. Not much more to say, we agree with what the other two reviews say, wonderful!
