Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2011

We picked this hotel based on reviews - the perfect choice for staying in the San Gimignano region. The accomodation is great, service lovely, restaurant yum! and the pool, well the kids couldn't have been happier - exactly what you need after a day of seeing the beautiful countryside that Tuscany has to offer - would definately stay again, no hesitation, highly recommend it! The breakfast is wonderful!!! great variety and the pastries are delicious!

Stayed: July 2011, travelled with family

The fabulous pool was the highlight for our 9 year old. If you stay you must eat at the attached restaurant. It is amazing! Try all of the desserts! The rooms were perfectly adequate. They are not especially quaint or charming, nor are they especially large. But they are clean, the shower is great, and we were on the 1st floor so we had a terrace that opened to a wonderful green view. The location is ideal. We love San Gimignano - especially charming at night when the crowds have left. We drove to Pisa, Volterra, Siena, and Pienza easily. We took a train from Venice to Florence and then rented a car for tuscany. Would definitely stay again... for the molten chocolate cream cake and more :-)

If you like peace and tranquility while you relax, then this family run hotel is the ideal place for you.
The location of the hotel is beautiful, set close enough to San Gimignano for nights out, and with uninterrupted views to theTuscan hills. It is a good location to make a base for travelling around southern Tuscany.
The hotel is modern and spacious set in beautiful grounds with two swimming pools. It is not a huge hotel therefore there is ample space to relax around the pool as it is not crowded.
Buffet breakfast offers a good choice to suit all tastes and lunches on the terrace are superb - freshly prepared and a good choice of dishes. There is also a poolside service for drinks and light lunches.
The rooms, whether in the original hotel or the new annex are spacious, clean and very comfortable. Ground floor rooms have a private patio area and upper rooms have balconies.
The staff are pleasant and extremely helpful. They will assist you in any way they can. They clearly take a pride in delivering a first class service.

From the moment we arrived the service was outstanding. We had a room overlooking the pool, the cleanest hotel room i have stayed in, the air con worked amazingly well, the first few days- wow it was hot.

Huge choice at the buffet breakfast which changed daily. The restaurant for the evening on the Terrace was truly outstanding food, and choice too.

Agnese & Laura were always on hand with smiles and ever helpfulness.
Even suggesting restaurant in the town for the Monday evening when their team have their much needed night off, and deserved too.

Swimming Pool...... I have never seen a pool that is so clean......

The hotel is ( 3 star ) officially....... Really it's a 5+

The walk up the track to San G is quite easy, does take 30min, but there is always the hire car !!!

A truly memorable holiday, long to return

Room Tip: Spotlessly Clean

The hotel and in particular our rooms were immaculately clean, service was excellent, including our breakfast which was included in the price. The restaurant attached to the hotel is excellent. The staff were very accommodating. I have recommended to several friends since I returned from Italy.

A sweet hotel with very helpful and friendly personnel. Good food and excellent swimmingpools. Quiet and great comfort in the rooms. A great bonus is that one can easily walk to the town of San Gimignano, a walk uphill with great rewarding sights.It was our great pleasure to stay in this hotel for 6 days and acclimatize to Tuscany. Certainly to be recommended.
