6/10 Good

Okay stay
First off, I should say that when I pay a higher price and when all the reviews are great I have higher standards. The inpression immediately on check in was negative. The host is obviously proud of her property but it started off with her telling us that breakfast wasnt included when we had booked it. This then lead to a few minutes of her teling us about guests who booked theoigh expedia have had problems. Im not sure how that really should concern me but I do know I don't want to have to deal with this when im on vacation and honestly was a terrible first im. They ended up honouring the breakfast in the end. Breakfast was good. The swimmign pool closes at 7pm and is not heated. The B and B is certainly bot walking distance to the town.

Loved it
I am sure we were in room 8 which was private and had great views. Pool area lovely. Very nice restaurant within walking distance as walking into San Gimignano was better in day light. Good breakfast. The family own the local bakery so be warned as you may need to walk into SG to burn a few calories. Would stay here again.

The property was so beautiful! The backdrop and stunning views of San Gimignano couldn’t get any better. We loved using the pool, and really enjoyed coming back after dinner and just sitting outside with a bottle of wine and relaxing. It was so lovely... exactly how you picture being in the Tuscany region. The staff was also SO amazing and friendly! They made our stay that much better. We loved everything about Podere Sant’Elena!

Beautiful view and special breakfast
The location is superb in front of San Gimignano, you can stay there sitting for hours and relaxing overlooking the village. Super interesting is Breakfast with a lot of sweets from guests' pasticceria. Barbara and Irene welcome you very nicely and are helpful for suggestions.
