Hospitality is the key with this property: We walked down the hillside from San Gimignano to check in at the B&B's farmhouse, a 15-minute walk down a lovely country road, providing the most amazing views of San Gimignano from outside the walls. There, we arrived just as the proprietors were bottling their vin santo -- to our luck! We enjoyed a glass (or two!) with biscotti, alongside Andrea, Francesco, Carla and another couple staying at the farm. What a welcome! We welcomed a ride to our B&B, right on the Piazza delle Cisterna. We walked up a few flights, and when our host flung open the shutters, we had the most idyllic view of the Tuscan valley. We woke each morning in that room to a beautiful sunrise, then enjoyed baked goods, fruit and cappucinos each morning in the common breakfast area (thanks, Antonella!). We loved our first day so much, we added two more nights, on our third night moving to a room that overlooked the piazza. Both rooms were spectacular, with antique furniture and furnishings that hinted at its palazzo past. Take note of the placard in the foyer - notable citizens lived in this palazzo for a century! On Mondays and Thursdays, dinner is offered at the farm, which was a lovely change from dinners we'd enjoyed within the walls. We loved feeling so welcomed by Francesco, Andrea and Carla, and recommend staying with them! We hope to return.
