We spent 2 nights here as part of a cycling trip of the region. We had a lovely welcome and the staff were all really friendly throughout our stay. The room was very simple with 2 singles pushed together rather than a true double, but it was clean and comfortable. The pool area looked quite nice although the weather we had wasn't great for swimming. There's a pretty, well maintained garden area (like with everywhere in this region, where there's greenery there's Mosquitos) The restaurant was very good, although slightly limited (and rather salty - maybe a personal thing) vegetarian choice. My husband was delighted with his meat and had one of the best meals of our trip.
Pancole itself is very picturesque but extremely tiny and quiet so if staying for any length of time you'll definitely need your own transport to explore the area.

Dear guest,
the property, my colleagues and I, we read you comments with pleasure and are pleased to get a so good feedback. I think you have realised exactly what we can offer (including the mosquitoes in the summer). I’m sorry for that but that’s what we have to pay for staying in a quite place in the country, surrounded by a green flowered garden.
Salty meals … yes may be, Tuscany is famous for its very tasting food! That’s why we have no salt at all in the bread. If you’ll return for a stay with us, please do not forget to advise the waiter you prefer less salty food.
I hope to meet you again in the future and send warm regards from Le Renaie.
Paola Verdolini / chief of reception

My Husband an i spent our 2 week honeymoon here and it was absolutely perfect! The hotel itself is beautiful, very clean and comfortable. The room had a balcony that looked over the gardens and the room and bathroom were large and well maintained. The restaurant at the hotel is fantastic! we ended up eating here most nights as the food was simply amazing (my husband has fallen in love with the wild boar they served and is desperately trying to find some in England!).
The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, in particular Elisa, Valter and Badia who made sure our trip was just perfect, they went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and i have never encountered such friendly and polite staff, fantastic!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, the pool was clean and just perfect for the really hot days when we just wanted to chill out. It is located 10 mins drive from San Gimignano and was very easy to find.
We loved every minute, very sad to leave and we will DEFINATELY be returning! Thanks to all at Le Renaie, you made our Honeymoon a trip to remember! xx

The hotel is the prefect base for exploring the beautiful area of Tuscany. It has a warm, welcoming and relaxed feel. The staff are helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for 4 nights on a half-board basis and this was perfect as it meant we could take day trips to the surrounding area (Pisa, Lucca, Siena...) and come back to some well-cooked food. The evening dinner menu has a wide choice of food, from pizza to T-bone steak, and an extensive wine list (many are locally produced). We even had the pleasure of eating at one of the sister hotels as the restuarant is closed on Tuesdays (it was the spa one and the food was divine!) The surrounding area is breath-taking- we would recommend the hilly drive to Castellina in Chianti for wonderful views over the Tuscan countryside. The only niggle we have is that there wasn't a courtesy room with shower to use on the day of departure, once we had checked out (we had an evening flight), although they did offer us the use of a private room for a charge of 30 Euros. Overall, it is clear that the family and staff care about their hotel and guests as they give their personal touch. We would definately consider returning and recommend it to anyone planning to stay in the area.

Dear guest,
we thank you so much for all the good things you are saying about us, a pleasant surprise.
It is a pleasure for every body here, the staff, the property to get confirmation of the job, we are trying to do at the best possible every day.
I regret about the shower we do not have, we offered the lonely opportunity available for guests on a late check out.
With the hope to welcome you again, find warm regards from Le Renaie. Paola Verdolini chief of reception

had a lovely relaxing 3 days here. very helpful and friendly staff. great location out in the country but only a few minutes drive away from the town . It was superb to be able to come back after doing the range of towns like San Gimignano, Sienna,Volterra etc to have the pool area for cooling down. delicious dinner served out on the terrace overlooking the garden was a great experience with a good selection of local wines. lovely quiet comfortable room. hotel generally had a great ambience.

Very enjoyable stay in a beautiful area. Room with a balcony would be preferable especially for drying towels, swimwear etc. Only consideration would be tea and coffee making facilities in rooms which was lacking. The breakfast was excellent, though if you wanted anything cooked
best get there early. Evening meals were also excellent and choice of wines also good.

Room Tip: A balcony room. watch out for parking in San Gimignano !

Dear guest, thank you for the nice words about us. It is always a pleasure to realise the happiness of the guests when the expectations are satisfied. About the coffee facilities in the rooms, it is not used locally. Also it would be very difficult to furnish our accommodation of the needed machine, without rising up the hotel rates, that we are trying to maintain in a certain average. We warmly thank you and look forward to see you again in the future. Paola Verdolini, chief of reception
