We had the most amazing time staying at Agriturismo Guardastelle last September. It is definitely at the top of most special places we have ever stayed in (and we do make an effort to find special places for our holidays!). We stayed in the Antilia apartment, which looks just as beautiful (or actually even better!) as on the photo's that are on the webpage. The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen and two bedrooms and bathrooms are each decorated in a different style and colour, making the place feel very special. The kitchen is one of the original parts of the house, and is very large and makes a lovely place to sit down and relax. There is also a large outdoor sitting area, which is very private and has views over the vineyards and olive trees surrounding the property. The breakfast terrace has views over San Gimignano, and can be used by anybody to relax and look at the view after breakfast has finished. There is also a pool surrounded by beautiful gardens, making the whole place just perfect for a relaxing holiday. They also showed us the other apartments just before we left, and they are all as beautiful. The accommodation is only a few minute drive drive from San Gimignano (or a 30 minute walk through the fields), which we thought was a nice place to visit, have ice cream and go for a stroll.
In addition to being such a special place to stay, the owners were just lovely. This makes such a difference, and Fausto and Susanna really made us feel at home. They are always happy to answers questions, and work really hard to make everything run smoothly. They produce their own wine and olive oil, and we went for 'wine tasting and lunch' which was one of the nicest things we did during our whole holiday. They showed us how they produced the wine, which tastes very nice. We were drinking their wine each evening during our stay and took a bottle home as well! We are already thinking about when to go back again ...
