Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pescille San Gimignano
Hotel Pescille was absolutely wonderful. It is perched on one of the many hills of San Gimignano you can get gorgeous views of the old town and its many towers.
The hotel has everything one could ask for. Spacious, clean and excellently air conditioned rooms, fantastic facilities including the swimming pool, internet, gardens and parking. We had a delicious barbeque brunch next to the pool on one day which would be highly recommended.
The only thing the hotel does not have is a restuarant for dinners but the staff at reception recommneded a couple of excellent ones about a kilometre away
The hotel is about a 4-5 minute drive to old town of San Gimignano so a car is essential. The hotel was far better than some of the 4 star hotels we stayed in. We would, without hesitation, stay there again.
Hotel Pescille was a wonderful place to stay with my wife and two daughters in late June 2004. A beautiful converted farm house with amazing gardens and a very large, clean (and unsually deep) pool was a welcome respite after touring museums and churches throughout Italy. The rooms were well appointed, air-conditioned, and very clean. The very friendly staff seemed to be constantly cleaning and maintaining this beautiful place.
The breakfast was marvelous as was the wonderful outdoor brunch. The Pescille wine was delicious (we bought some bottles to take home). The four of us agreed that this was the most heavenly place we stayed in all of Italia.
A Traveler's Delightful Respite
May 2004. We thoroughly enmeshed ourselves into this magic farmhouse setting. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with a private veranda. It was just lovely. The farm setting was a wonderful respite from the large cities. The staff was eager to help and the environment was restive and just what we needed after long drives in Tuscany. It's closeness to Florence makes it a delightful stop as you work your way north.
i would recommend this hotel only for those with their own cars, as taxis are rare and very expensive in the area.the rooms are simple, nothing special, but the garden is very nice and spaceous.
The Hotel Pescille is situated a few kilometers from San Gimignano in the middle of the spectacular Tuscan countryside. From the window of our gorgeous room we could see the towers of San Gimignano across the valley. It was heaven! The grounds are lovely as is the pool, the breakfast, and the proprietors--all of whom are very friendly. We've stayed there twice and will go again the next time we're in Tuscany.

... Tuscan countryside. Couldn't think of anywhere I would have preferred to have been on such a warm, sunny day. Post lunch we needed to walk off the food and wine so further exploration was in order. We climbed up, we climbed down and then we climbed up again. Before we knew it, the time had come to return to Florence but this time we caught the correct bus and made it back in about half the ...
... so I advise you to wear comfy shoes! San Gimignano must see places Porta San Giovanni: located in the south side of San Gimignano, this impressive door was first finished in 1262. It's one of the most beautiful ancient doors of Italy and deserves a visit! Piazza della Cisterna: you know you have arrived at this square when you see a big cistern that was built in 1287. Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square): in the heart of San Gimignano we can see not ...
... a rooster started crowing and woke Brian up. He opened the shutters to probably yell at the rooster, but instead got to see the the most beautiful view of the sun rising over the Tuscan hills, complete with vineyards and olive groves and a view of the hill town of San Gimignano. Picture perfect. The hotel was just as we remembered it, quaint with the same beautiful views and the best cappucino ever. ...
Again not nearly enough time in Florence – too much to see too little time! But we certainly packed in what we could (pity we couldn't sneak down the road and see Boticelli's Venus, but you can't have everything!)
We did a walking tour of Florence, and heard much about the history of the place, the buildings and how, in centuries gone by, it had the 2nd largest population ...
... were lined across intersections for citizens to cross when the streets were flooded for cleaning which was every day. The stones also had traffic symbolism. A single stepping stone indicated a one way street, two meant an ordinary two way street and three meant a major thoroughfare. The pavement was mixed with broken pots and reflective marble so that people could see where they were going at night by torchlight or ...
