    We definitely had a great time in the Agriturismo Il Girasole di San Gimignano !
    Stella is very nice and always available for you. She has many advises that can help you to have a great stay. Do not hesitate to have your breakfast there ; Stella is really a talented cook !
    I personally thank her for the wonderful stay we had there!
    You can also taste and buy their own wines and oil which are really good !
    The room is very specious and well equiped. The view from the terrace on the garden, the pool and the wineyard is amazing and peaceful.
    Furthermore the place is ideally located ; very close to San Gimignano (no more than 10min by car), Volterra, Certaldo, Siena and so on.
    We highly recommend this Agriturismo !

    "Dream vacation as you imagine it"

    06/19/2019

    A very beautiful courtyard with fantastic panoramic views of the city of towers, San Gimignano. The hostess, Stella, speaks good English and is an incredibly attentive and cordial woman. Furnishings, surroundings, views, atmosphere and mood are 100% what you would expect when you think of Tuscany. The yard has only 3 accommodations and therefore it is very quiet and relaxing, the pool landscape is really beautiful. We can only advise you to book the breakfast, as every morning, one gets a rich and varied table on the panorama terrace. The wine and the olive oil from our own production were very good and we loaded our suitcases fully. From my point of view the location was perfect to visit cities like San Gimignano, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Volterra or Montalcino. However, we would definitely recommend Florence only by train, because it is critical in terms of parking space and the train connection is top class. We can fully recommend the farm, especially for couples and a mix of pool holidays and city breaks.
