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.

Today we left Lucca and headed towards Firenze via Siena and San Gimignano. Siena is where the horse racing is held in the middle of the square. I had expected the outside of the square to be quite large but it is quite narrow and all the spectators stand in the middle area which is sloped. Lots of the streets are steep and narrow but little cars and motorcycles still blat through them. There was a ...
... at the old city and unfortunately all the tourists… Lots of German voices today. I noticed a little shop that was selling the same tablecloths we bought from the vendor at the Panzano Sunday market. We paid about €5-7 less for ours. Yea! Lunch at another little restaurant we just happen to stop at out of convenience. The Tuscan soup was delicious. We were trying hard to feel the love on pottery, art, something… ...
... German boys who were traveling, the bartender, the locals, and the caterpillar man and we cant forget Mr. Snake!
Somehow we stumbled home and made it safe and sound. We cooked a feast when we all got home and Sarah was sleeping in her bed topless...the joys of having roomies!! I tried feeding her some pasta because we all had Orientation the next day but she only had a noodle! Hopefully we all make it in the morning!
... an awesome night with plenty of wine. This unfortunately was our last night with Brendan so we may have overdone it on the cheap litres of wine. Good times for sure! Sarah and I were so sad to say goodbye to Brendan that night we bought a bottle of wine on the way home. Bad idea. I'm pretty sure my parents laughed at us an awful lot when we Skyped with them later that night. What a way to end our time in Florence. It's a great city and I'd like to go back one ...
