5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2009

Stayed here on our 10th anniversary trip to Italy, my 10th trip to Europe and 2nd to Italy, her 3rd to Europe and 1st to Italy. Hard to find as the road address was confused by the GPS with another portion of road with the same name on the other side of town, but wonderful once we got there.

Located on a hilltop not far from Certaldo, on the 302 from Florence (one of he most spectacular roads I've ever driven). Views were breathtaking, could see San Gimignano and Castello Orvieto from the terrace and pool; you have to see the views at night from the pool! About 7km from San Gimignano, near the Tuscany Wine route with dozens of beautiful wineries to visit. Visit Certaldo Alto, the small and very charming medieval village much less touristy then most in the region. The annual street theatre festival there is lots of fun as well. Easy access to Florence by train from Certaldo.

Service was great but cool at first, the owner warmed up as we stayed (3 nights) and talked with her. Have her supper if you have time; for 20E, much better than any of the tourist dreck you get in the tourist areas. Great and inexpensive wine selection from their wine cellar.

Big, spacious rooms, very clean.

If you want a great country hideaway with easy access to the rest of Tuscany, this place is great, but you'll need a car (free parking...).

Of all places we visited in Italy, this is where we will be most likely stay again, and for much longer next time. We were very sad to leave for the rest of our trip through Italy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The construction rises on a hill, from here we can enjoy a splendid view on those nearby valleys. The house has been recently restaured and divided into 5 apartments and 5 rooms. Apartments and rooms look out on the garden, where we can admire different varieties of plants and flowers. On the surrounding space, you can find many relax areas, such as the characteristic "Concimaia", a very panoramic place endowed with pavilion, table, chairs and a romantic swing. In the west, close to the construction, we can find a little natural lake, habitat of ducks and frogs, whose croaking amplifies the feeling of close contact with nature. For nature and good form's lovers, Podere Benintendi offers the opportunity of walking and training in the open air. The structure is endowed with a very big swimmingpool (4,5x17 m). Guests can enter into the pool through a roman flight of steps that dips softly into the water. Here you can spend pleasant instants steeped in relax and welfare. Close to the pool, under the wonderful terrace made up of stones, is the characteristic "Enoteca" in rustic style, where you can buy oil of our production. Adjoining to the Entoteca, you can find the gymnasium, that guests can use free. ... more   less
