Absolutely amazing experience! The hotel stay was superb - the rooms were rustic, really clean with fantastic views and hospitality 1st class. A real home from home warm feeling. Helio, our hotel host was so welcoming. The smells of the hotel were sweet and breakfast included home made cakes and focaccia. Italian mama style! We also received a bottle of wine when we left which was such a thoughtful touch and much appreciated by us ;). Value for money like no other - we thought they made a mistake, but no... it really was an amazing package for a whole lot of true Italian moments. Wine tasting (including olive oil tasting) was included in our package. Alberto was our sommelier, a family member of the vineyard and was top class. We were given a tour followed by wine and olive oil tasting. He was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly. Would recommend this place to EVERYONE!

Perfect! Highly recommend! Excellent service: Elio and Stefania were very responsive to all my queries (before our trip and during out stay). Elio is very attentive to each and every guests and provided very valuable ideas/ suggestions. You can fell his warm hospitality and sincere care for everyone. Rooms: Spacious, very clean, comfortable bed and pillows, good ariconditioning, and beautiful scenery (our room was facing the vineyards). Meals: Excellent breakfast personally prepared by Elio and Stefania - everyday is different. Tips: 1. Request for a room facing the vineyards. Awesome view to wake up each morning. 2. In case you're tired at the end of the day, you can request Elio to prepare simple dinner meal for you - pasta, and platter of cheese and cold cuts.

A very clean, comfortable well situated hotel about 15 minutes from San Gimignano. Eliot was an exceptional host. His wife did some home baking for breakfast that was beyond a five star hotel. Stayed here two nights. Breakfast was a real Tuscan delight. Eliot couldn’t do enough for us, making sure we were content and happy and we were beyond appreciative. Rooms are spotless, beds very comfortable and overall will highly recommend this little Tuscan delight to anyone hoping to stay in Tuscany.

The hotel was lovely, clean, and comfortable, very much an overperformer. Somewhere I see this listed as a "one-star" hotel, but I can't understand why that is. It is a clean, family owned and operated B&B. Would absolutely stay here again. Why Ulignano? Very close to San Gimignano and a stone's throw from Tenuta Torciano winery.
