Podere Bellavista is an old refurbished country house, in the middle of Tuscany,consisting of a manor house and two cottages sorrounded by wide meadows, vineyards and oliveyards. Situated on the slope of the hill opposite San Gimignano (Siena), Podere Bellavista offers a panoramic view of the old town and of the stunning hilltop skyline of towers. Podere Bellavista offers accommodations in both rooms and apartments, to satisfy the different needs of guests, who have the chance to join us in our charming dining room on the first floor of the manor house and feast upon our genuine Tuscan cuisine (only for the evening). Each apartment is self-catering and available with a private, outdoor area with chairs and tables, and a personal barbecue to eat, relax, and enjoy the beautiful view. Guests can enjoy wide meadows equipped with sun beds, lounge chairs, and tables, and an outdoor swimming pool, that faces San Gimignano and the surrounding hills complete with patio, sun beds, and bath towels. Due to its location, only three kilometres far from San Gimignano which can be reached by foot through a country path (1,5 kilometres), and only 700 metres from the road to Volterra, Podere Bellavista is the ideal place to discover Tuscany and its many treasures.

The Podere was an wonderful experience. The hosts are amazing. We strongly suggest an extended stay to enjoy the atmosphere. It is a walkable distance of San Gimignano through a small road (can be a problematic walk for some). We were the only guests in the period and could not try the chef’s cooking (we were looking forward to).

It was incredible. We loved everything about our stay at Podere Bellavista. The Apatment (named Alice) was beautiful, clean and well furnished. The grounds were also beautifully maintained. From the apartment's terrace we had a great and unabsutrcted view of San Gimignano. But really the views were amazing from every place you looked, classic Tuscany views. Exactly what we wanted. Breakfast was delicious, and plentiful. You could also ask for eggs, cooked anyway you liked. And do have one dinner, a 4 course meal of the local cuisine. It was also a nice short walk from San Gimignano. First part is through the woods, and a bit rocky. Not a difficult walk, but be aware. Lastly, the staff were incredibly nice and welcoming. We mostly interacted with Virginia and Andrea, who were both super nice and helpful. But really everyone who was there was incredibly nice. We spent two and a half weeks in Italy, and Podere Bellavista was the place we liked the most. We would highly recommend anyone coming to Tuscany, and particularly San Gimignano, to stay there. Thank you for 3 wonderful nights!

Our only regret with Bellavista is that we did not stay longer, even a week is not enough for this little piece of heaven. It is in a perfect location, within easy reach of the city, but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing, with superb views of San Gimignano and the surrounding hills covered with vines and olives. The apartments are full of character, each one quite private, and well stocked for self-catering, although Bellavista also offers delicious breakfasts or dinners if you want them. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, and make you feel like friends. The swimming pool is gorgeous. It is by far the best accomodation we have stayed in anywhere in Italy.

We stayed here for one night while traveling around Tuscany, our only regret was that we didn't get to stay longer! We chose this hotel because of the location, the view, the availability of parking and the reviews about breakfast and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! The location is great, super close to San Gimignano with a nice view. We were only able to see the view of the town from an area near the parking lot, but maybe if you had a room in the building with a balcony, you might have a nice view of the town too. The parking area is nice, but if the hotel is fully booked, parking can be limited or tight. The parking area is fenced in and when you arrive you ring the bell for them to open the gate. However, they give you a remote so you can come and go as you please which is really nice! The room is spacious and clean with homey touches. The bathroom is nice and the shower is great with excellent water pressure! The AC works perfectly as well, which was really nice after a long hot day exploring! Breakfast was excellent with so many choices! Cheeses, cold cuts, fruit, veggies, yogurt, pastries, eggs, even fresh bruschetta and you can taste their local olive oil! We didn't have a chance to swim in the pool, but it looked really nice! Also, the wifi was wonderful and pretty fast too. Overall, I wish we had stayed here longer and I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a cozy atmosphere!
