Reviewed 21 August 2014

As a family of 4 with two young children (4 and 7 yrs) we stayed in this lovely villa a short drive from San Gimigano in Tuscany. The pool is fabulous and was perfect to cool down in after sightseeing. Carlo the owner cooked us a fabulous 3 course meal that we all enjoyed. We will definitely return here on our next Tuscan visit.

When you get to this lovely located place you will be surprised of this beautiful view. It's a perfect place to relax an visit the surrounded typical Italian villages.
The rooms of the hotel are well equipped and clean. The own pool is a big plus, where you can relax after a city trip. The hotelier knows the best places to eat, for wine degustation and he has some good recommendations for day-trips.
All in all, a place where i would go again.

Just brilliant. The villa, the pool, the surroundings, the panorama view on San Gimignano, the olive trees, the vineyards: this place got it all. Carlo is a great host, willing to help you find the greatest places of Tuscany. Having breakfast in his garden is a great start of the day. I really would recommend this place. I've never been to Tuscany before, but I'm sure this place is in the heart of Italy's most wonderful area!

the stay in villa del pino is a great experience, the trees, the house, the garden and the pool are impressive. the surroundings full of vineyards and olivetrees give you a warm tuscane feel. the view from the pool is magnificent - over the hills and the towers of San Gimigniano. Carlo is helpful, an amazing chef and friendly

The hotel is more of a guesthouse than a hotel. You feel like you are visiting this friend of yours, who just happens to own a quite spaceous house in the Italian countryside. Carl, or Carlo as he goes by in the local tongue, is an eccentric, yet calm Swiss gentleman. He is owner of the the villa, and always welcoming his guests in the most heartfelt manner. He carries out most of the day to day to dos in the villa, except from the cleaning. His knowledge of everything worth exploring in the region is astonishing. Recomendations for everything from tourist traps to the hidden gems of Tuscany is always accompanied by little anecdotes, making him the most interesting travelguide I have encountered.

The villa in itself is an interesting mix of Italian, rustic charme with a touch modern design and art deco. Its somewhat odd, but still, its this that brings personality to the place.
It has a great outdoor area, an infinity pool overlooking the vines, and a charming outside eating area by the pizzaoven.

Breakfast is simple, with bread, a small variety of ham, cheese and various spreads. You can arrange with Carl to have dinner or lunch at the villa (he makes the most wonderful chicken) but for the most you have your meals in one of the restaurants in the area. You are however totally reliant of having a car while staying there, unless you want to spend a fortune on taxibills. It is no alternative to walk to the nearest trattoria, so a designated driver is a must!

I reccomend the villa for couples looking for a quiet and relaxing time off, or a smaller group of friends. It is not a place i would go with smaller kids, as it might not be to convenient with the distance to eating-options, and no fridge in the rooms. It is a great startingpoint for exploring everything tuscan, and you will feel really at home during your stay with Carl.

This is a hotel greatly located to see most of Tuscany. It is not only situated in a beautiful surrounding with great panorama view, but also with quick access to the main roads of Tuscany. Further, the host Carlo, is very well familiar with the area and gives great advice on day-trips and restaurants to visit in the area. We are very satisfied with our stay.

The owner was friendly from the start, and generous to offer to prepare us dinner on the first night of arrival. This allowed us to use the pool and relax. San Gimignano is only 20 minutes away, and although Poggibonsi is not an attractive town the Monday morning market was great. Chianti only 30 minutes away, and Montalcino very close. Carlo was a mine of information on the area after his living there 20 years or so. Places to see and visit abound the region. A must repeat visit
