If you’re going to Tuscany I could highly recommend this place. It’s runed by Emilio and hos wife. The coupe are so extremly warm, welcoming and generous. Rooms are very nice and the sorroundings are stunning. The breakfast with a cup of excellent cappuccino is a very good start of the day. From here you can reach all the sights that’s on a Tuscany Bucket list. Don’t miss to have your dinner here. Emilio has excellent talent for cooking.

The hotel/house is gorgeous outside, it’s old stone house, so if you like that kind of style you will like it for sure. Inside - interior is OK, following the style, but it’s not as impressive as exterior... Rooms are nice, but, for example- blankets are like from the WWII, literally, old, scratchy, awful, kind of dirty and WITHOUT any cover! There are two employees: one at the “reception” and a cleaning lady. They don’t speak English - she doesn’t speak at all, and he knows literally few words. Whenever we tried to ask them something or to apply an “irregularity” they like didn’t understand, especially she, even if you physically show her what is wrong... Then, it was very cold beginning of the spring, and the heat did not work properly! We got froze, first night especially (just to mention that we were with a kid)! The heat was turned on and off periodically, and it was old fashioned and noisy (it was turned on and off and during the night too)! Our toilet got broke, the technician came next day, so we were without toilet for 24 hours (repeat, with a child)... “Luckily” we had another room, where our cousin stayed, so that night he left the door of his room unlocked 🙄, so we used his toilet... Breakfast was very very basic, coffee was great (as expected 😉)... The area is beautiful, it’s Tuscany though... If you want to visit Tuscany’s most “famous” sites/cities (to be quite close to them, by car off course) and at the same time to feel a little bit Tuscany’s country side life, then I suggest you Country house Il Castagnolo (the price is OK), but be aware, and come during the warm months... 😉

We had a great stay in this bucolic, dreamy, beautiful house in San Gimignano, close to the city but far enough from the touristic mess to let you enjoy all the beauty of Tuscan vineyards. The host was extremely kind and flexible. The breakfast was great, as well as relaxing afternoon at the swimming pool. Surely worth visiting!

Great location for visiting all the attractions in central Tuscany. Peaceful, rustic and close enough but far enough removed. There’s a smashing restaurant at the end of the private drive and several more within a few kilometres. We loved it.

Very close to San Gimignano, this is the perfect place to enjoy the calm and beauty of the countryside. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast is very complete! Thank you for this great, but too short stay. We definitely recommend this place !! Camille and thomas
