Four ladies from the state of Oregon in America while traveling through Tuscany stumbled onto this lovely place. It was like being placed in the middle of a postcard. The host and hostess, Cristiano and Silvia made our stay perfect. Cristiano's favorite phrase I think, was "as you prefer." He is certainly accommodating of his guests. The rooms are old (the place was built in 1663) but modern enough. No A/C but if you leave the windows/shutters closed during the day and open them after the sun sets it is comfortable in the room with a fan (which Cristiano supplies). Breakfast is included and a variety of breads, cheeses, cereals, yogurts, fruit and espresso or American-style coffee is available. This is a working vineyard and olive orchard. We planned on staying only one night and ended up there three...and drank their wonderful wines (red and two whites) while we were there. We even got to watch the harvesting and crushing of the chardonnay grapes. A doctor was necessary one day and our hostess called to make arrangements with the "tourist doctor" (no charge) and our host drove us to the doctor's office. The walled city of San Gimignano is doable to walk (all uphill - but downhill on the return!) or if you go early you may drive and find a place to park. The city has a LOT of shopping available and is charming to explore and have lunch at one of the cafes. We met people there who had been coming for a couple of weeks every year for 15 years and staying at Ag Santa Croce. Another group of hikers that checked in the day before we checked out have been staying there every year for 10 years to hike the area. Cristiano, Silvia, their son, Francesco, and their dog, Luna, made our stay so comfortable we all want to return sooner than later!
