Lovely old farm house villa surrounded by wine and olives. Not cheap but unique.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Completely relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this property and just love the location. It is a fairly steep walk up to San Gimignano but it gets easier! and the view is beautiful.

Roberta and her family are so very warm and welcoming. Only sorry our Italian is not good enough to have a chat with her mother and father in law.

It is a wonderfully relaxing holiday destination and we will definitely return.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the property.

It is a short walk up a very steep hill to the centre of town, great that we didn't need the car as parking can be very busy in summer.

There is a large and and lovely garden and a kitchen that is well equipped.

Fabulous and helpful hosts provided great advice on places to eat and visit nearby, and delicious homemade pastries in the afternoon!

San Gimignano is beautiful and we would love to return and stay with Roberta again.

Beautiful house set in an idyllic location.

  • 5 of 5

The lovely, clean converted farmhouse was set in the the shadows of the picturesque San Gimignano - it was located in beautiful countryside with the town just a 5 minute walk away so we had the best of both worlds! San Gimignano has many attractions and wonderful restaurants. There are 2 piazzas which were bustling in the evening - we loved just sitting watching the world go by.

We visited Siena (stunning), Florence (equally stunning), Pisa and Volterra. We were also advised by our lovely owner to try a couple of local festivals- which we did and loved. Without Roberta we would not have found them. She was always on hand to give us welcome advice, Both she and her family were very welcoming and could not have been nicer.

Some days we just spent lazing around the pool which was heaven.

We feel lucky to have found this little piece of paradise ....and we will be back!

Perfect place to stay in Tuscany with kids

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming back to this villa now for 5 years and we feel very lucky to have found it. It is just 10mins walk from the town which means that you can enjoy being in the peace of the countryside, with the facilities of the town just a short walk away - great if you want to enjoy a drink with your dinner. The scenery from the villa and pool is incredible and it is really private. As the pool is only shared between 2 villas, it is always quiet and so you feel as though you have your own private pool. The countryside around the villa is stunning and my kids exploring the vineyards, olive groves and land, Roberta and her family are such brilliant hosts and our children really look forward to coming to spend time with their Italian friends. We have stayed in both villas, Finelle and Girasole and both are great if you are lucky enough to find a time when they are available.

Typically Tuscan house in the most amazing setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous week here. Setting is idyllic with amazing views. 10 mins walk into the town which is stunning. Great for a family but staircase would not be suitable for anyone unstable on their legs as its spiral and not the firmest. Roberta and her family were so welcoming and very helpful. Really lovely touches too like fresh Italian baking!! Recommend very highly and we would love to go back.
