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.

... serious, but are surely about preparing the newest batch of wine. He has been pruning fruit trees since we arrived yesterday, but the heavy rain moved his continuous work indoors to the wine cellars. His wife also works vigorously; tending to the chicken coop with knee high rubber boots. Her feet are covered in thick, sticky, tan clay. She repositions the feisty chickens like a retailer repositions merchandise on a shelf. She fixes her bandanna, tightening it around her ...
The cats and ourselves stayed another night at the Casanova di Pescille just two kilometres from San Gimignano with its fine towers. So for you Paige here is a photo of one of the three cats we had to move from a chair so we could sip our wine in the sun this evening.
The sun was up and creeping over the hills around 7:00 am this morning. We are down slightly in a valley so by 8:00 the morning sun ...
... impressive pizza oven in her kitchen. We were very envious of the pizza oven. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening getting to know them all and the kids had a ball, running around outside with all the others. Then just after 9pm our boys were stoked they turned the TV on to watch the England vs Uruguay World Cup match. We managed to drag ourselves away around 11pm so it was a very late night for all - home and straight to bed. By ...
... to the next bus, but luckily they called us a baby bus and got us the rest of the way there. Friday morning we were able to go on a free walking tour (hey, we're broke girls). It took us through the downtown of Florence and explained the medieval age of the city. I saw Michelangelo's childhood apartment, the apartment where Leonardo DaVinci painted the Mona Lisa, and some landmarks that Dan Brown wrote about in the Inferno novel (I took pictures for ...
... we were getting an authentic experience. We met some Aussies, Danes, Germans and Canadians who were all staying at the Villa but had the cooking class to ourselves. Tasting some local wine was also part of the deal and we started with a dry white to go with the many starters we made which were bruschetta, garlic bread (made the Italian way – I can still taste garlic now!), panzanella (a salad kind of ...
