We lived for one week in Il Borghettino and really enjoyed our stay.
It`s right beneath San Gimignano with a great view over the hills of Tuscany, only 10 minutes walking time from San Gimignano center. The only little manco: it was not easy to find first. The buildings can only be reached by a small, narrow farm track, starting at the right hand side of the main gate, following the city walls and then leading in the vineyards. But on the other hand, this "isolation" prevents you from the tourist hords, streaming through the medieval streets right upon the hill.
Once arrived, it is really a beautiful location. The old farmhouse villa`s interieur has a rustic landlord style. The Pool is around the corner of the former stables where the owner family lives today. Very nice people. We had a very good neighborhood for the week.
Il Borghettino was a good base for day trips to Florence, Siena, Volterra and the Chianti region (all reachable in about 1 hour by car). Mrs. Falchini helped us a lot with really good tips how to reach the cities, where to park and she knew some good insider spots like a local cheese manufactory in Podgibonsi. Thanks again!
The rent is not cheap but worth the money. We would come back and really can recommend this lovely place.
