“What a pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed 8 September 2007

A 16m2 squeaky-clean room in the heart of Tuscany - 5 min away from the world heritage town of San Gimignano - , the best breakfast I ever ate in a hotel (variety and quality wise), a decent pool, pleasant decoration, somewhat weird but very attentive hosting and the added bonus: a refrigerator filled with bottles of water at your disposal. At 80 eur a night, it's a treat!

Reviewed 29 July 2007

We found this B&B just outside San Gimignano and really enjoyed our 2 night stay there. It's a recently renovated farmhouse, very nicely done, with swimming pool in beautiful surroundings (although only a limited view of the towers of San Gimignano). The people running it were very helpful and very nice. Great place for a peaceful stay in the countryside but still only 5 minutes drive to San Gimignano. We'll definitely be back!

  • Liked — Friendliness of the owners, overall atmosphere, wood-beamed ceiling!
  • Disliked — No air conditioning but they did have a fan in the room which worked well
