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.

... black night waving their arms and talking in rapid voices. The bus backed back a little, the car shot forward and then realised too late that he couldn't make it and gently hit the barrier! He then engaged reverse and caught the bumper, pulling the bumper off!!The bus meanwhile was stationary in the middle of the corner. The other cars backed up and let the bus through. Italy is such a unpredictable country with excitement around every corner!! Until next time, Bruce and the ...

And then, it was back on the bikes - down the right road - and off for home! Colette and Tom decided to ride back via San Gimignano - Tom had left a water bottle at a bar there yesterday . . The rest of us headed back via that wonderful road we had enjoyed so much! Got back in time for a nice swim and some time to relax out by the ...
Arrived in San Gimignano late morning to explore the medieval town, deep in the Tuscan countryside. Well known for its 11 century towers, and given the nickname medieval Manhattan. Originally 72 were built as monuments to show the towns wealth, today only 14 remain. The place was stunning with its pristine cobbled streets packed full of small shops offering Italian ...
... palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi, 6000 tourists and lots of things to look at without ever moving from the doorway! Sigh! The race took place later today. We know when the racers have entered Florence...helicopters can be heard everywhere...time to walk to Piazza Republicco to watch them come around the bend...it was single racers today instead of teams, and we must have arrived late because ...
... the interior is quite plain. We went down to the crypt and see the remains of the 4C Church that they knocked down to build the Duomo. It was more interesting than upstairs. But the really spectacular part is the Baptistry. Not only the celebrated doors but the interior of the dome, which is a riot of gilded tiles. After a GF pizza, (boy is she getting spoiled), we head down to the Uffizi. We have booked on a guided tour and the place is packed. However ...
