From the minute we arrived, we were treated like royalty. Monica at the front desk is worth her weight in gold. We witnessed her go above and beyond for another family before she extended the same courtesy to ours. The hotel is in a storybook setting overlooking breathtaking vistas in every direction. The breakfast was good, they serve carafes of “Cafe Americano” to you at the table and the rest of the meal is buffet. Several wineries are walkable down the hill from the hotel, and the old town is walkable up the hill. Be aware that there is no restaurant on site, and the closest one is about a block away. Dinner in Italy starts around 630-7pm, and most restaurants are not available until those hours. I continue to mention this in my reviews because breakfast is over at 1030am and your next meal isn’t available nearby until 630pm. It was pouring rain one of our days but we were hungry so we walked in the rain to the old town for pizza in the afternoon. This was the case in all 4 towns we visited this trip, but I wasn’t aware of it before I booked the hotels.

Perfect Tuscan Getaway

Absolutely perfect - location, staff, and grounds! Short 10 minute walk to the gate of San Gimignano. The entire staff were super friendly and very helpful at booking several wine tours. We were able to visit both the Chianti and Montalcino wine regions from here. Oh, and the breakfast every morning was excellent!

    Beautiful location and a very easy 10 minute walk into San Gimignano town, hotel staff were wonderful, very helpful and attentive. Hotel is quite dated in some areas, and a little worn/run down in rooms mainly. The lobby and breakfast areas are very Tuscan and beautiful. It will definitely need a refurbishment of rooms in the new couple of years I feel. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely visit again!
