Podere Sant'Elena is perched on the edge of a hill looking over a valley of grapevines and olive trees, with unrivalled views across to San Gimignano. It is a peaceful, charming and homely place to stay.
The owners and staff were extremely helpful and friendly and recommended lots of things for us to do and places to eat, one of which was really nearby (20 metres and perfect for a tasty meal and stroll home).
We really liked the quiet, the views, the spotlessly clean pool and the very well-appointed bathrooms.
We were slightly disappointed by the storage space and general size of our bedroom but we did not spend much time in it so it was not a major problem.
Initially, we thought that the Podere was too far from San Gimignano but it is less than 10 minutes' drive and 30 minutes' walk down a pretty road.
