Once again the reviews were bang on. This place is a gem! Perfect location to tour the Chianti region, Siena, and of course beautiful San Gimignano.
Very easy to find. The original building was used as a watch tower in the 11C. The rest of the building was added on in the early 20's. Beautiful woodwork throughout.
We arrived a bit early at 12:30 pm and we were able to check into our room.
Both our host and hostess were lovely and very friendly. They gave excellent instructions on where to park in San Gimignano and where to have a wonderful dinner.
Our room was on the main floor and very large with a king size bed and spacious bathroom. The views from the room were breathtaking. Everything was neat and tidy and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were white and crisp and pressed. Our room had a small sink in the room itself as well as a separate bathroom.
The bathroom had a stand up shower, white fluffy towels and complementary toiletries. There was a wall mounted hair dryer that sounded like a jet engine. Unfortunately it didn't work to well for my long hair but this was the only downside.
The breakfast was worth the stay. Don't rush to fill up on yogurt and cereal. They served tasty meats and cheeses as well. But the best was the freshly baked bread and cakes, including pizza! Freshly made to order coffee and finally a beautiful plate of fresh fruit.
We loved this place and highly recommend it!
