Hotel Vecchio Asilo - The Old Asylum is a perfect place to stay. The location in a little village, Ulignano, in the countryside just outside San Gimignano is perfect if you want to go by car to the highlights of Toscana. It is easy to reach big cities like Sienna, Firenze, Lucca, Pisa and Bologna and it is much easier and cheaper than staying there. And every time you come back to the hotel you feel like coming home to e peaceful place.
It is even better if you come for enjoying the landscape and nature in the neigbourhood. San Gimignano is only 15 minutes away and it is quiet and wonderful in the evening, when all the buses with tourists have left the town. The trip from Ulignano to San Gimignano in the evening sun is beautiful.
We had 5 wonderful days at this little and charming hotel. Our room on the back side of the hotel had a perfect view over the hills with wine fields and forests. The room and bathroom was nice and clean.
But the best part is that you all the time feel like a special, honoured guest. We have travelled quite a lot in Italy, but we have never met such a hospitality and passion for giving good service.
We selected the hotel in the first place because we read the many positive reviews in Tripadvisor. So when we were informed that Stefania and Elio have taken over from Guido, we were prepared to adapt our expectations. But it was not necessary. We could not want more service, hospitality, better breakfast and passion for the job than we met. We got a lot of good advice of where to find the best places and restaurants to visit in the neighborhood. Always with a smile.
We will be glad to return
