This is the review from my 9-year-old daughter: We are staying in the agriturismo for four nights. We had a cooking class today which is our last full day at Guardastelle. The tiramisu, gnocchi and homemade pasta that we were tought to make was awesome, even though I must admit it was quite tiring standing up for so long. Nevertheless,...

We could have spent a whole week here! Very clean and well maintained. I loved that we could walk down the dirt road to dinner in San Gimignano. We took some breathtaking pictures on the way to dinner in vineyards. Highly recommend!

This place is pure perfection. Fausto is such a wonderful host, our room was spacious and comfortable and the setting is idyllic. A beautiful, rigorous walk gets you to the entrance gate to San Gimignano or it is an easy drive to Florence or Siena. Make sure you book the wine tour and try the wonderful food, wine and olive...

We chose to stay in one of the stand-alone apartments instead of one of the rooms in the main house, and it was lovely. Clean, comfortable, and cozy with a well-equipped kitchen. Great water pressure in the shower. The morning breakfast can be enjoyed inside or out, overlooking the Vineyard, the olive trees, the rosemary bushes, and the pomegranite trees....

Right from when we arrived the views over the classic Tuscan countryside from all parts of the property set me up in a great frame of mind. The place is not that easy to find but that means it is very quiet and relaxing. There is about a 1k walk into San Gimignano up a dirt road that probably existed...

Dear "Arr-Jimlad", many many thanks for your visit and this beautiful review.

I would recommend this place every time to anyone desiring a Tuscany accommodation. Absolutely gorgeous landscape surrounding and so conveniently located close to San Gimignano that you can walk a back road right to town.
