Agriturismo il Girasole
Reviewed 26 July 2016

We have stayed here on 2 previous occaisions and have just spent another 2 weeks in july..2016

We were not disappointed...... the agriturismo is in such a wonderful position with a view of San gimignano in the distance .

The self catering accomodation is typicaly tuscan .....you can order a lovely breakfast if you wish.

Stella who runs the business lives on site with her family and nothing is too much trouble for her ........she is supported by her family and staff who have the place in an immaculate condition.,

It is central for lots of the towns in that area ....with a local train station ....connecting direct with florence ....Sienna and others. A car is essential.

i think it is the best place i have stayed for a relaxing hoilday ....it has a wonderful swimming pool ,sun loungers and shaded areas round the pool .....and still just short drives to numerous local towns in which to absorb the local atmosphere.

A great experience again.!

We were there a week and truly enjoyed every minute of it.
Stella made us feel very welcome and anything we needed
She would get for us…. Their wine that they make right there
on their vineyard is absolutely delicious. We brought 4 bottles
back to Montreal with us…

The only thing I would mention that was a bit of a surprise was
some hidden charges we were unaware of when booking with her…

#1 - is that if you want your room cleaned it is 8 Eros. We asked to
have our room cleaned and the towels changed 2 times. And got
charged at the ends for 3 cleanings, 24 Eros..…

#2 - if you use the washer, not the dryer, it is a 5 Euro charge, each time…

#3 - you get a coffee with your breakfast, every coffee after that is 1 Euro.

In the end it was an additional 51 Euro’s, not the end of the world, but
was a surprise. I don’t mind if there are extra charges, but let me know when
I book, not when I pay after my stay… All in all the place was great, and we
would go back and stay there again, now knowing exactly what it’s all about.

Carissima Penny,
è stato un piacere ospitarti insieme a tuo marito e alla tua famiglia e ti ringrazio per la recensione che hai scritto. Normalmente non è mia abitudine rispondere alle recensioni pubblicamente, preferisco inviare i miei saluti privatamente, ma in questo caso devo farlo perché ho riscontrato che hai scritto delle cose inesatte.

- Per quanto riguarda le pulizie che avete richiesto è vero che non sono comprese nel prezzo, ma è anche vero che vi è stato detto alla richiesta, ed è ben specificato nelle informazioni che ci sono in tutti gli appartamenti alla voce incluso/non incluso (sono comprese nel prezzo quelle finali), oltretutto, poi ve le ho fatte pagare, solo per il primo giorno...e non per gli altri giorni..

- Il costo delle lavatrici è di € 5,00 ciascuna incluso detersivo, ti ho informato anche di questo (nonostante sia scritto) quando ti ho accompagnato per spiegare fare il lavaggio, se per te non andava bene il costo non capisco perché hai fatto altre lavatrici...

- Nella colazione abbondante, al prezzo di € 6,00 a persona è compreso un caffè (o cappuccino) oltre al dolce fatto in casa, il salato con affettato e formaggio, i croissant, le marmellate, lo yogurt, il pane fresco, ecc... gli altri caffè sono da pagare a parte.. considerando il fatto che la prima mattina ne avete presi 4 prima di cominciare la colazione ... mi sembra chiaro che non posso comprenderli tutti nei € 6,00!

Comunque di tutti gli eventuali costi aggiuntivi siete stati informati il primo giorno, Michela come da vostra richiesta, vi ha anche scritto i prezzi del caffè, cappuccino, caffè americano, così da poter prendere nota.
Tutti i costi non compresi nel prezzo, di cui non tutti i clienti hanno bisogno, sono quindi a richiesta e riportati sul nostro sito e sul regolamento che si trova in ogni stanza.
Detto questo vorrei dire è stato bello conoscervi, cucinare e condividere con voi la mia terra e i miei prodotti che avete visibilmente apprezzato, con l'augurio di rivedervi ancora.

Arrivederci!
Stella

This was our 2nd trip to Italy and our 2nd stay at Il Girasole. The negative first: we only stayed 2 days! That's it!
This place is welcoming, has beautiful views, kind and caring hosts. I love being here. The view of San Gimignano on the hilltop is breathtaking! We took a photo on our last visit that we have since blown up to a large canvas piece over our fireplace at home.
Stella is such a sweet lady and makes you feel like you are part of her family.
We stayed in the Olivo room again, our favorite. Each morning we had a nice breakfast prepared by our hosts and a wonderful surprise our last morning with a homemade tiramisu! Stella and her family prepared a breakfast with some of their own products, fruit juices and jams. And let's not forget the wine in the evening! Stella's family makes a delicious red wines and the ever lovely and refreshing Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
I cannot say enough about our stay. We found it to be well located for day trips around Tuscany and so quiet for very restful evenings after long days of touring and wine tasting.
We took advantage of the kitchen in our room and my husband prepared a delicious meal for us and our friends...I think even Stella was impressed! Someday, we hope to return to Italy. That time, we will spend at least a full week if not more at Il Girasole.
Whether we are there or at home, we feel we have made life long friends with Stella and her family.
One more thing, she has a pool, which is cleaned daily! We still have not enjoyed it because we fill our days with activities throughout the region. Next time...we must take a dip in the pool!

Room Tip: If you want to do some cooking, choose the apartment Olivo, but if you plan to eat out, any room is...

My wife and I felt warmly welcomed here from the moment we arrived in this family-owned & run place. Alice was as nice as nice could be, and we very much enjoyed chatting with her. She also introduced us to her parents, and it was her mom who brought us a delicious breakfast to our room each morning. We really felt like we were staying with friends. The surrounding area is gorgeous, and weather permitting, there is a lovely swimming pool. The location is about 3.5 miles from San Gimignano, which makes it an easy drive for dinner. We would be happy to stay here again. TIP: Plan to arrive in daylight hours, preferably with the aid of a GPS. This place, like most agriturismo places, is not easy to find in the dark.

Room Tip: Compare available rooms upon booking, and check their website for photos. There are different kinds...

The place is very cozy, the room was nice, functional, clean, and the bed very comfortable.
Ms Ilvea cianetti was very helpful, and pleasant. It was a real gracious hospitality.
And yes, it is really 20 minutes by foot to Assisi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to Assisi
