Sassi Bianchi
Reviewed 25 June 2012

We joined 6 other couples at this wonderful Agriturismo. There are multiple houses on the property, all well appointed and decorated and very comfortable. My wife and I stayed in the one called Ginestra. It was beautiful and relaxing throughout our stay. Concetta and Paolo were extraordinarily attentive and kind. They helped us in ways we couldn't have imagined when my wife became ill briefly during our stay. Sassi Bianchi is about 15 minutes outside of the quaint little town of San Gimignano and 30 minutes from Volterra which we found especially enjoyable. We can't recommend Sassi Bianchi highly enough for a special stay in this region of Italy.

We stayed in the Foccolare, which is part of the Sacchi Biancchi with my three children. Concetta and Paolo were the most amazing hosts. They were very warm and extremely helpful. Concetta recommended the right places to go and eat authentic local food and the villages and towns we should see. Both of them were lovely with my boys and the boys want to go of course back. The location was fantastic. We could see the towers of St gimignano from our balcony and the beautiful vineyards. It felt like proper countryside although it is very close to St Gimignano. Of course St Gimignano is wonderful, full of medieval and renaissance history but also lively with lots of restaurants and caffes. Concetta recommended to us to try the best ice cream in the world and there is one award winning ice cream maker that is worth the prizes! Concetta made for us the most delicious pastries, one special called pastilla for Easter and crostata. The final thing to say is that she can give all the right info for getting from A to B in Tuscany which for travellers with a young family like us was very important. We would absolutely recommend Sassi Biancchi for the authenticity of the people and the place.

My wife and I stayed in the Sassi Bianchi appartment for our honeymoon. The apartment is a charming piece of authentic Toscana, located right by the central piazza in San Gimignano. With a full kitchen and two bedrooms, this place would be perfect for anyone, backpackers, families, honeymooners, etc.. The hosts, Paolo and Concetta, were simply amazing. They are the perfect example of true Tuscan Italians; outgoing, passionate, extremely helpful, etc... and were def. the highlight of our honeymoon. We also were lucky to visit the actual house, and, as a previous revewier put it, a little piece of Heaven is exactly what is was. It was everything you could ask for in a Tuscan stay with vineyards, a beautiful landscape view of San Gimignano, set right in the middle of the Tuscan countryside. Highly recommended! 5 stars! Thank you so much for everything Paolo and Concetta, we will be staying again, Ci Vediamo presto!!! Grazie e abracci!! -Colin e Kendra

We had a very lovely time at Sassibianchi. It was very peaceful and we loved being in the country. The house (Acacia) was in a great location, very private. The pool was absolutely perfect! The kitchen and barbeque were awesome and we cooked most nights. The windows are screened which is a bonus when the mosquitos were out and we wanted the cool air in our bedrooms. Concetta and Paolo were very helpful and made our stay that much more special. We will definitely be back!

From the minute we drove onto the winding roads leading to Sassi Bianchi, we were enchanted with this area of Tuscany. We were so fortunate to rent one of the four stone "cottages" on the Sassi Bianchi property, the GInestra farmhouse, from the gracious owners, Concetta and Paolo. "Ginestra" was very well appointed with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms; there were trailing geranium flower boxes everywhere and strategically planted honeysuckle vines -- it truly looked like something out of a fairy tale! From our house, the views of the mountains in the distance and the valleys down below were stupendous. Our family of 7 took advantage of the beautifully well-maintained swimming pool surrounded by vineyards, wildflowers, lavender fields and also a pond with ducks! Each day, it seemed that Concetta and Paolo stopped by with some homemade treat for us and one day we were lucky enough to receive fresh eggs from the hen house! On the night before our departure back to the U.S., Concetta and Paolo served us a fantastic 9-course (I might be missing one or two) meal extravaganza complete with spumanti, grappa, and limoncello for our family while we sat under the arbor of our stone cottage. Sassi Bianchi and Concetta and Paolo were fantastic! I feel we have made new friends and we definitely have wonderful memories and will cherish them always.

Paolo and Concetta were very kind and extremely helpful throughout our week-long stay. The house was clean and beautifully decorated. Our whole family also enjoyed the well-maintained pool in the back patio. On our last night we enjoyed a wonderful dinner prepared by Paolo and Concetta. We certainly feel grateful that Paolo and Concetta were so eager to give us the full Tuscan experience!

Tuscany is absolutely beautiful and Sassi Bianci is an great place to see it from. We stayed in in Lucy cottage, which is the smallest cottage, but a great size for my wife and I. It was simply decorated and full of Tuscan charm. The cottage had a kitchen, which we often used to cook our own meals or to prepare snacks for while we toured. They even stocked it with a few basic, but useful items such as bottled water, milk and coffee.

Concetta and Paolo were so nice. They gave us some great advice on the area. One day we returned from touring and they had left us some homemade traditional Tuscan vegetable soup. Also, on our last day we got our rental car stuck. They came over and pulled our car out for us. We are so greatful for them and can't wait to go back. We would absolutely return and stay there again.

The countryside is spectacular. There is a vineyard right on the property. The property is situated on the east side of the hill, so no scenic sunsets, but that may be the worst thing I can say about this place. Amazing panoramic views. It has a nice pool and tennis courts, although we only used the pool a couple of times and never played tennis. There is way too much to see in Tuscany too spend much time relaxing at the cottage. But if you wanted to, it is a great place to do so.

We used Sassi Bianci as our base camp for touring all over Tuscany. We made driving trips to San Gimignano, Sienna, Florence, Chianti wine region, Pisa and Saturnia. San Gimignano is a short 10 minute drive from the property. It is a good central location if you are planning to try to see as much of Tuscany as possible.
