The spot was marvellous with a phantastic panoramic view of San Gimignano. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything was nice, clean and well-tended (room, garden, pool). The breakfast was extraordinary rich in choice and taste: sweets, fresh fruit and sandwiches, real orange juice, coffee, tea and hot chocolate as much as you like. Do not miss to try...

My wife and I stayed for a week in May. We had room 6 (which along with room 7) had stunning views across the vineyards to San Gimignano. The room was clean and comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and the whole place was beautifully maintained (Nice garden). The pool was fine. We couldn't actually come up with...

This was a stunning place to stay with a fantastic view over to San Gimignano. We walked to San Gimignano every evening for eating out, it takes about 25 Minutes walking through the Vine Yards down the hill and then up to San Gimignano on the other side. (You can always get a taxi or drive as an alternative)The views...

My husband and I spent a week at the Podere for our Honeymoon. It is a lovely relaxing spot in a nature preserve, very close to town, shops, and a good midpoint to visit Pisa, Siena, and Florence. We did daytrips and it was perfect! Our luggage was lost and the staff was very helpful in contacting the airline for...

We arrived on our honeymoon with a wicked flu-bug and boy was this place a sight for sore eyes. Simply gorgeous villa accommodation with shuttered windows that opened to the absolutely incredible vista of vineyards and San Gimignano beyond. The rooms were lovely, large and very well appointed. A wonderful restorative peaceful place to recover. The only drawback was that...

Beautiful, small B&B with incredible views of San Gimignano. The rooms were large and spotless. The breakfast was, by far, the best we had in our 2 week trip through Italy. San Gimignano is walking distance from the B&B, however, take note that Podere is on one hill and San Gimignano is on another - therefore, there is a bit...

The Podere Sant'Elena was excellent. It is a farmhouse located about 2 km from San Gimignano. The view alone makes this bed & breakfast amazing. It is situated on the top of a hill, surrounded by vineyards and rolling hills. In the distance you can see the towers of San Gimignano. In addition to this, the room was huge (by...
