Family of 10 had 3 rooms plus the 2-bedroom apartment. We loved our accommodations and our hosts were very kind and helpful. The rooms were cozy and quaint. The rooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast was hearty and tasty and all of us enjoyed it each morning. Room numbers were placed on dining room tables each morning. The view, from rooms...

Lovely week stay here - relaxing by the pool and staying in adjoining rooms upstairs with central kitchen area. Friendly welcoming and relaxing. Only comment would be that the kitchen was lacking in utensils including no sharp knife, but then with bed and breakfast included and eating out there was little need! Great position for exploring Tuscany - Volterra highlight...

What a delightful introduction to the San Gimignano area.. A quiet retreat, beautiful scenery with gardens and pool to relax in. A walk to the local Tre Archi restaurant was so easy and so wonderful!! A hearty breakfast to set you on your way! Excellent staff. A wonderful place to stay.

I honestly was trying to come up with something negative to say about this place, but I just did not have anything to say but - pure perfection. The view while driving up the windy roads and the smell of pure nature is the epitome of romance. Then you arrive at this beautiful, yet unpretentious piece of heaven. Each room...

Wonderful unique relaxing Tuscan villa. We loved staying here surrounded by beauty. The gardens, flowers, stunning glass bottles used to water the trees, pool, dam, ducks, wine, and views around this B&B were wonderful. We had the two bedroom apartment top floor with kitchen in between our two rooms for our family of four. We all enjoyed swimming and relaxing...

We stayed there in comfort, breaking up our Italy trip to explore this part of Toscana. Found it impropmtu and it was one of the gifts befitting our style of travelling a new countryside.

“We combined two rooms (24 and 26) on the first floor with a central kitchen. Very practical for a family. I am no sure that other appartments have the possibility to communicate. They seem more interesting for couples and families with older children.”
