“WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 11 September 2010

We chose this bed and breakfast from Alistair Sawday's Special Places to Stay - Italy, as his books are usually very dependable and we are very rarely disappointed.
Del Giglio is located in Tuscany between Siena and Florence.
I can honestly say, that this was the best bed and breakfast we had stayed in during the whole of our trip and just wish we had found it earlier. Laura and her beautiful daughter Beatrice provided us with comfortable, spacious and immaculately clean accommodation, which comprised two bedrooms (with tv), each with en-suite bathroom. further bathroom, sitting room (with tv), kitchen and garden with breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside and San gimignano in the distance.The apartment is part of their beautifully and sympathically restored 12th century house (Laura's husband is a designer and artist,) Breakfast was simply delicious with fresh local produce, fruit, breads, cheese and ham, yoghurt, home made pastries and jams, and perfect cappuccino, all beautifully laid out each day on the garden terrace. Laura and Beatrice are warm, kind, and thoughtful, very fastidious and take great care in making sure their guests have everything they need. Although there are local restaurants we chose to buy all the wonderful regional produce and cook ourselves and dine in the graden. There is even a wine cellar with a good selection of local wines to choose from. What more could one ask for?
Our stay was a truly wonderful experience, one which I shall never forget, and we shall certainly return and indeed recommend it to all our friends and family.
