We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful setting in the hills of Tuscany, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Warm and helpful hosts. San Gimignano is not far away if you want some more dining out options, but there is also a lovely local restaurant up the hill. The bedroom was a bit on the dark side and overall the...

We stayed at Bellavista for 4 nights in April. The location is excellent, overlooking Tuscan vineyards and San Gimignano. The apartment had everything we needed including a patio overlooking the gorgeous views. The apartments were clean with nice warm touches. Christine was fantastic! Very welcoming and even did our laundry for a small fee. Would highly recommend Bellavista!

This a fabulous place to stay. Stayed here for 6 nights in September and Bellavista has a great view of the San Gimignano town. Very quiet and relaxing in the middle of olive trees and grapevines. We upgraded ourselves to the villa with a kitchen which was a great move, as we cooked ourselves dinner some nights with fresh produce...

Set in the hillside about five hundred meters from the main road, Bellavista is a great place to relax with no traffic noise, just listen to the sound of silence. The rooms are very spacious, clean with quality furniture. Surrounded by vine fields and olive tree orchards, a wonder around the garden before breakfast, taking in the fantastic views was...

Podere Bellavista is set in a wonderful location up on the hill looking out over the vineyards and up to the beautiful San Gimignano. The room was a little small but it was clean and tidy and the bathroom was stocked with lovely products. The only downside with the room was that it did not have a fridge which would...

We stayed here for four nights and really enjoyed the location, view and pool. The host, Virginia is really friendly and made terrific recommendations to food and restaurants in San gimignano. We were really looking forward to a true agriturismo stay with full on delicious breakfast and mama's home cooked dinner but unfortunately it was not to be. We tried...

Hello! Thank you for your opinion. I alrerady thought the same solution for the bathroom, and I hope that this year I can do it, but the size of the shower is normal now it's not big, but not claustrophic. For the external door it's not possible to do anything, because we can't change the external of the old building....

Great under-stated accommodation in Tuscany. Beautiful setting in the hills of Tuscany, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. We stayed in Villino La Quercia which is lovely and private with its own terrace to sit on and sip away at the wine collected from the day's adventure. Other apartments may not have the same privacy but there are still common...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Podere Bellavista is an old refurbished country house, in the middle of Tuscany,consisting of a manor house and two cottages sorrounded by wide meadows, vineyards and oliveyards. Situated on the slope of the hill opposite San Gimignano (Siena), Podere Bellavista offers a panoramic view of the old town and of the stunning hilltop skyline of towers. Podere Bellavista offers accommodations in both rooms and apartments, to satisfy the different needs of guests, who have the chance to join us in our charming dining room on the first floor of the manor house and feast upon our genuine Tuscan cuisine (only for the evening). Each apartment is self-catering and available with a private, outdoor area with chairs and tables, and a personal barbecue to eat, relax, and enjoy the beautiful view. Guests can enjoy wide meadows equipped with sun beds, lounge chairs, and tables, and an outdoor swimming pool, that faces San Gimignano and the surrounding hills complete with patio, sun beds, and bath towels. Due to its location, only three kilometres far from San Gimignano which can be reached by foot through a country path (1,5 kilometres), and only 700 metres from the road to Volterra, Podere Bellavista is the ideal place to discover Tuscany and its many treasures. ... more   less
