Stayed here with our 1 year-old in the Perseo apartment for a week in August, along with friends who took the Antilia apartment with their two young children. We had an absolutely fantastic time. Apartments were stunning, so clean and beautifully-decorated, breakfast on the terrace with views of San Gimignano was just lovely, and the staff couldn't do enough to help and make us feel welcome. Kids (and adults!) loved the pool too. We also had one night in one of the hotel rooms, which was lovely, large and luxurious.
We'd really recommend the wine tasting and Tuscan lunch, which we thought was great value.
The walk to San Gimignano (with great views) takes about 20-30 minutes but is slightly hot work in the August heat! Thankfully the city itself is a little cooler.
As said in other reviews, they don't serve meals other than breakfast and the wine-tasting lunch, but we found their restaurant recommendations (especially Il Trovatore - you have to have their Bistecca Fiorentina) absolutely spot-on.
All in all, a lovely stay, and we couldn't recommend Guardastelle enough. Hopefully we'll be back!
