Planning our trip to Italy; for 2 families for months and it was so worth it, to stay here at Podere Bellavista! We loved the views, the well kept and large manicured lawn, where the kids could run and play and the beautiful pool and deck overlooking a stunning Tuscany backdrop. We loved all of our lovely and unique accommodations....

I made a reservation for January 31st and arrived at the property only to find the gate closed. Called the number posted on gate only to be directed to voice mail. Waited 15 minutes and finally found out from a passerby that it is closed for the winter! Would it be too much to ask them to update their outgoing...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Podere Bellavista from a very warm welcome on arrival, Virginia couldn't do enough to ensure our comfort. On the second night Virginia cooked a Tuscany meal for us which was delicious, serving many homemade produce. Location is perfect to relax in with outstanding views of San Gimignano and the surrounding vineyards and olive groves....

We have just had the most wonderful week in Tuscany and it started with the warmest of welcomes from Virginia, her smile and hospitality were second to none. Such a beautiful setting and the view from the terraces towards San Gimignano are breathtaking, a little bit of heaven in the Tuscan hillsides. The grounds are so well kept with olive...

The location is great. Rooms are OK. Pool area is great. The walking-path to San Gimignano is OK during daytime, tricky in the dark. Breakfast is OK - not great. Podere Bellavista is a great ”basecamp” for exploring Toscana. In addition to San Giminano we like Siena and Pienza a lot.

A beautiful setting, lovely clean and stylish rooms, fabulous pool with plenty of loungers. Nothing is too much touble for Virginia and her staff, and the meals she cooks twice a week are great, as is the breakfast. A definite return is called for. Oh yes, and their own wine is .............oh yes!

We stayed here 2 nights and had chosen the property for it's proximity fo San Gim whilst wanting to be located in the countryside. Bellavista was the perfect solution as the surroundings were stunning, especially the superbly kept grounds with vines & olive trees and lovely if freezing cold pool! Our room, Alice, was an upgrade from a double room...

Maybe it is a nice country house and maybe the other rooms are great, BUT the room we stayed was not good at all. It was a room that stood alone away from the main buildings and I think that it was not suppose to be rent. We had a small, miserable balcony and a view towards San Gimigiano but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
