This is a perfect location for exploring the neighbourhood, especially San Gimignano. The breakfast is nice, you can have it inside and outside. Parking is safe and the staff attitude is very nice. if you have any concerns or questions, they help you. I will never forget their hospitality and the view from my room overlooking the “ancient Manhattan”! :-)...

We returned yesterday from a nine night stay and I could have stayed so much longer. The location is wonderful and the accommodation clean and comfortable and the views amazing. For the staff nothing was too much trouble and they were all lovely and so friendly we felt so welcome. The home made pastries are delicious and to sit in...

We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015. Very reasonable price for a beautiful location - fantastic views over San gimignano. Lovely pool (a little cold though) and a great wee pizzeria down the lane. San gimignano is about a twenty minute walk - downhill then up and most pleasant. Friendly, helpful staff. Basic breakfast and good sized, but...

Excellent location, close to San Gimignano but on a quiet hillside, with a view of the entire city across the valley. Pool was refreshing in the heat and very clean, with nice landscaping. Large, clean room with a lovely bathroom. You can eat the plentiful breakfast outside with a gorgeous view or in the breakfast room. The city is a...

It was altogether a very pleasant experience. Located in the midst of vineyards and olive plantations and an uninterrupted view of San Gimignano. Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. Good breakfast. Wonderful place in typical Tuscany The breakfast room can be a bit of a challenge at times because of its small size, but fun, however, there is the option to...

A charming B&B in the quintessential Tuscan countryside. Our room had the most incredible view of San Gimignano - one you could never tire of ... Beautiful in the setting sun and stunning at sunrise... The breakfasts are the best we had during our 3 weeks in Italy. The family runs a bakery in town and serve their tasty breads,...

We stayed at Sant'Elena late August early September. The situation is stunning with fabulous views of San Gimignano around 1km away. Room had all we needed and was kept spotlessly clean, as was the Podere in general. Barbara & Irene were extremely helpful. Breakfasts were wonderful - but don't forget to ask for your espresso. There is a walk to...

Our 4th stay since 2007. The Podere didn't lose any of its charm and beauty. Friendly owners, excellent breakfast ( from their own bakery in town), very nice garden and pool (big and clean, with quiet sitting area) and above all, the unprecedented view on San Gimignano. Don't take your car to go to the town, but walk 25 minutes...
