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.

... that? Soon we're off to the wine tasting. . .
Now home from the wine tasting. It was very informational and enjoyable! The woman who gave us the tour was very well spoken and we learned lots of interesting stuff about the wine business in this area and about the woman who owns this Agriturismo. Apparently she owns three Agriturismos and each one produces wine. If one part of her business goes on ...
... to head to Siena. So we board a train that took us back to Florence.
Back in Florence we were nothing but disappointed as we found out that the car hire companies would not let us rent a vehicle the following day as there was some special bicycle race that went through the city and all streets were shut down for this event. Therefore no cars could get in or out that day. Disappointed, nay, shattered that we only had one day left and would not see the Tuscan countryside ...

For the afternoon, I make my way on foot across the Ponte Vecchio to the oltrarno area which I expect might be a little less crowded... wrong ! More people are pouring through the streets the same direction as me.. towards the Palazzo Pitti, another of the Medici families palaces. I feel ...
