We were looking for a central location in Tuscany to stay for 5 nights in the "off-season" and were delighted to find this beautiful B&B open. The photos don't do justice - the views of San Gimignano are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, and the service is exceptional! We chose the apartment on the first floor to spread out and...

Every aspect of our stay in this house was fine- large well-furnished, well-lit rooms and very welcoming hosts. Luggage racks would have been helpful but they seem to be very rare in Italy. It was great experience to stand amid vineyards seeing San Gimignano in the distance. The breakfast buffet was very complete. A short walk up the country lane...

We enjoyed our stay. San Gimingnano was our favorite town in Tuscany so it was a real treat to be so close by. The farm house is charming and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful! My son is gluten free and they purchased gluten free foods for breakfast. Unfortunately, the wifi was not working during our...

Extremely friendly and very helpful staff. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh pastries, fruit and Cristiano creating a new design in our cappuccino foam every day.

Our family of 4 stayed at this quiet bed and breakfast in the Apartment Corbezzolo. Cristiano, the owner, was an amazing host and always helpful and smiling.
