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.

... would certainly rank in the top. More than an afternoon is probably needed, especially if one spent serious time in the museum.
Besides being the foremost repository of Etruscan artifacts and alabaster artisans Volterra has the honour of being the home of the powerful clan of vampires called Volturi in the Twilight books and movies. I've never read or seen " New Moon" or any other of Stephanie Meyer's novels but I think ...
... 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 ...
... three different types of local cheese. Next for our first course we made pasta from scratch called pici all’aglione (kind of like a mix between spaghetti and noodles) to have with aglione sauce (tomato and garlic) and fagioli cannellini e timio sauce (pasta with cannellini beans and sauce made with onion and parmesan cheese) which we tried a local red wine with. Finally our main was Saltimbocca which ...
... the city from Piazzale Michelangelo on top of the hill. Keep tripping over brides in this city...plus squads of young 18- 20 year olds, and a few telltale Contiki busses. Mmmm time to head back to the quiet neighbourhood of our hotel, and pick up some antipasta and wine from the local supermercato! Catch up some email, but having problems with my phone...trying to renew the credit, but the instructions are in Italian, no actual person on the ...
... day a right off, we hit the streets wondering if we might be able to go to a gallery this afternoon. We get the bus Rosy has recommended, but go about three stops too far and again, have to walk to where we need to be. Nevertheless, we do get to the Uffizi Gallery at around 4pm and decide to wait and see if we can get in, they don't close till 7pm. But the lining up system here is crazy.....at first it seems we might get in, but then no one goes in ...
