“wonderful place with a beautiful view”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

The place is very cozy, the room was nice, functional, clean, and the bed very comfortable.
Ms Ilvea cianetti was very helpful, and pleasant. It was a real gracious hospitality.
And yes, it is really 20 minutes by foot to Assisi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to Assisi

We stayed a week in September and found it charming, the owners friendly and helpful. We stayed in the olivo apartment, it was clean, quiet and comfortable. We entered the apartment and we were greeted by a bottle if their own wine. Their wine and olive oil is very nice, we wish we had bought more to bring home with us! It rained some while we were here so we didn't get to enjoy the pool, but spent some time sitting on the swing enjoying the view of San Gimignano on the nearby hilltop, breathtaking views.
Only downside of the stay was that we arrived Saturday afternoon by taxi without any groceries, so we took a walk down the hill to the local store for some snacks, the pizzeria was not open. Stella, the owner shared with us some of her fresh garden tomatoes and pears. The kitchen had some pasta and oil, so we were able to make some dinner the next day to get by until Monday when we could catch the bus to the nearby town to take the train to Florence for our car. This was our own poor planning, but made for a fun adventure and a great story to bring home. Breakfast is available for a small fee and well worth it, especially the cappuccino! So be sure to have a car the first day, keeping in mins the bus doesn't run every day and the rental car companies close early on Saturday and some are not open Sundays.
We still keep in touch with our new friend, Stella, and plan to return to stay again. This place is in a good location for visiting the hill towns of the Tuscany region, and everything is accessible by car, and by train we had no difficulty getting to Florence. We spent 22 days traveling around Italy. If you are there in September, we recommend you visit the Chianti Festival that takes place in Greve in Chianti....all the wine in Italy is beautiful, and the olive oil is so flavorful and fresh.

My wife and I had a short break in this agriturizmo in September. It has a pool and garden with magnificient views of the wineyards, olive trees and of course San Gimignano. We were the apartement L'olivo. It was nice , clean and well equipped. Stella - the owner- and her mother are really friendly. They were a great help in planning our routes to Chianti Classico and Montalcino and she recommended a superb restaurant in San Gimignano, where I had a 1100 gr. T-bone steak.(Hard work)
We were self catering (you can have breakfast provided), but every morning Stella brought us fresh bread and croissant.
Il Girasole very relaxing place, and good base to take tours other part of Tuscany as vell. If you can do, go to Rada,Panzano and Montalcino.
Thank's so much Stella. We'll be back!

This B&B is incredible,it has a pool magnificent views of Tuscany,Olive trees,vineyards
as far as the eye can see. The owner Signora Stella and her family are amazing. They
have lounge chairs by the pool,BBQ two great tables with chairs so you can have lunch
or dinner they have a fridge in every room,they have an apartment with kitchen and all
utilities, they have a washer/dryer for the guests at a minimal charge.

they have a bar area where they sell their wine,grappa,olive oil and all other drinks you
can enjoy while by the pool all at less than reasonable prices.

You are 5 min drive to San Gimignano, a wonderful village with great views,good shopping for souvenirs from the region,many hand painted ceramic souvenirs.

Stella and her mother made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing.

My wife and I stayed at this Agriturismo for 2 weeks .

We have been here before and enjoyed it greatly .It lived up to all our expectations.

The acommodation is typical tuscan,spotlessly clean and very comfortable with good sized rooms with all self catering facilities. All rooms have panoramic views looking over the vineyards to San gimignano in the distance. This view is amazing and has to be one the best ever.

Their is plenty of outside space with tables and a lovely swimming pool with sun loungers.

We were self catering but you can have breakfast provided .

The family who own this are really friendly and cannot do enough to make your stay relaxing. They are a great help in planning your routes to the various towns and have lots of information re the main tourest destinations ,such as San Gimingnano, which is a short drive away and others in the area.

We used this place as a base for travel mainly by car but also by train from nearby stations.

This is such relaxing place . They also sell wine and olives at the vineyard

We will go back again when we are in the area.

It started with the warmest greating imaginable. The Stella the hostess and her whole family greeted us when we arrived late - they were worried we had gotten lost. From then on, it was all great. The location perfect. Olive trees, beautiful pool, gorgeous views of San Gimignano, walks and great food nearby. They have breakfast overlooking the valley and towers of San Gimignano and if you want to eat in your kitchen, they take orders for all kinds of different breads and other items which you order the night before and is on your doorstep the next mornig, freshly baked at a nearby bakery. The rooms were clean, the family great, the location perfect, you can't go wrong.

We stayed at Il Girasole when the hotel we had planned to stay at was full, what a blessing. Great hosts, wonderful views and excellant price. Included a nice breakfast and a welcoming bottle of wine. We used the property as a home base for driving around Tuscany with San Gimignano being only a few kilometers away. I'll be back. P.S. Girasole is sunflower in Italian.
