We enjoyed a full week with friends at Guardastelle during September of 2010. Our apartment was lovely and spacious with stunning views of the villa and the Tuscan hills from every window. We cooked in the well-appointed kitchen, dined and read outside on our private patio, and swam in the pool that overlooks the grapevines. Several mornings, we joined the b & b guests for breakfast (including Roberta's fabulous cappuncinos!), and one day sat on an outside terrace for an amazing wine-tasting lunch. We walked every day on the quiet back road to nearby San Gimignano, where there is much history, many shops and incredible food.
Susanna and Fausto, the young owners, were gracious and welcoming. We had many conversations with them as we learned about the restoration of the property, the extensive remodeling of the buildings, and the grape and olive harvest. They truly shared their dream with us.
We’ll definitely return and have recommended this lovely place to many people. It was even better than we hoped!
