Willful trespass in medieval Tuscany

... It would be really photogenic, apart from one major flaw - there is almost no vantage from which to take said photo unless taking landscapes from moving helicopters in foreign places just happens to be your hobby, in-between skiing on your mountains of money and racing your butlers, you rich jerk.


I was convinced, however, that surely some place in the surrounding grape and olive fields would be my opportunity to get the panoramic shot I was after, so I spent 2 ...

... After dropping off our backpacks, we went exploring, Jasmine finally solved her sandal dilemma (Manayach keeps saying Tevas are only for lesbians, but unlike my last pair of sandals, they aren't cutting my feet up to shreds), we saw the Duomo (more on that tomorrow when we explore the inside; in short it is the only building constructed entirely on hope. ...

... before heading to their family-style dining room. There are two rows of tables with an aisle in the middle so the kitchen staff can bring out our meal. The family-style seating allows us to mix and mingle with others on the tour. The couple sitting across from me are from New Zealand and the mN sitting next to Laura is from Canada. We hear about the other places they have visited on their holidays (like Venice) and where else they are going. We ...

So followed by the Uffizi gallery, which is... superfamous both structurally and because it houses a lot a LOT of stuff. Including, oh, you know, that one painting with that goddess, what's her name, Venus? Standing in a shell or something? IDK. ;p

The Road to San Gimignano

A travel blog entry by silverlobster

... isn't even the hill to S.G. It's the one before it. The traffic on the road is not busy, but there is no path, so I decide to get off the highway. An adjacent field has a path running parallel to the road, so I hike along the rows of vines, and help myself to the deliciously sweet grapes as I go. This is the life. Eventually I decide a shortcut is needed, and head across country, straight for S.G., as the crow flies. A big mistake. The ground is dry, ...

    Great Value for Money

    from

    We just stayed at Villa San Paolo for a week (before easter weekend). It was lovely - and every comment that was written before is true. Very helpful and skilled staff. Good breakfast, clean and nice room, tasty diner and good wine selection makes your stay very unique. The view to San Gimignano is superb, like a postcard, just everything you expect from Tuscany.

    Exactly as you expect Tuscany

    from

    My husband I stayed here in Sept 2005 for 4 days. We loved everything about it. The room was fabulous. Large bedroom area, separate little sitting room area which opened onto a private courtyard. Big bathroom with spa.It was all exactly as you would expect Tuscany to be, with its lovely colour scheme, leather furniture, outlook over the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The restaurant was open and quite up market food consistent with a 5 star hotel, and all delicious. A little bit pricey but what you would expect at a top class place. Breakfasts were great with a very extensive range.

    We took advantage of the free use of bicycles and on a glorious sunny day, rode to San Gimignano, about 5km. We are 50 and 63 and did it easily even though there are rolling hills. We walked the bikes up the last steep bit to the town. Fantastic.

    Best hotel I've ever stayed at!

    from

    We just stayed at this hotel for 3 days while touring Italy. Granted we made the mistake of thinking we could take the train to San Gimignao and walk to the hotel. No! As previous poster said, this hotel is 4 km from the town. We ended up taking a taxi from the train station to the hotel which cost about 15 euros for the two of us. When we got to the hotel we were greeted warmly. Our room was still being made so while we waited we had free drinks and were offered snacks. We stayed in room 108 which faces the pool. The receptionist took us to our room herself and showed us how things worked (like the AC and Do not Disturb button). We had a nice king size bed and a great view of Tuscany.

    The pool isnt heated but I can imagine how inviting it will be in the hot summer months! I loved the shower which had three different kinds of nozzels. Our room was extremely clean and had robes and slippers in it.

    As the past reviewer said, their resturaunt isnt completed yet. But from 7-10 they do serve what they consider "snacks" like salata mista, spaggetti with ragu, bruschetta with tomato and a few more. My husband and I dined outside with a bottle of local wine and were more than pleased with what was considered "snacks". Our waiter told us that the hotel hopes to have the resturant finished being built in a few weeks so they can start serving guests.

    We didnt rent a car while there (which I highly advice anyone going to San Gimignano to do) so we walked to town. Took us about an hour. The hotel offered to call taxi's for us but we decided it would be a good way to burn off all those calories from the food we've been eating. When we got ready to check out, the concierge helped us find train times to leave at as well as arranged a taxi to take us back to the train station.

    I would ABSOLUTLY stay here again. It is a wonderful hotel. I really think that once everything is up and running like the spa and the resturant, this hotel will become a five star hotel. If you are looking for a retreat from other tourists and the city, go here.

    Renovated

    from

    We we're there on our 25th Anniversary April 2005, and we we're not aware that the renovation was going to be in progress. The Hotel will be beautiful, but they forgot to service us with any ammenities. No shuttle to Town, which is about 4 miles away, Restaurant wasn't open, no turn down service and not really any one to speak to. The Hotel would of been beautiful if they had ammenties!! We would not return...

    Beautiful!

    from

    Just returned from Italy, what a blast!

    The Villa San Pedro was everything we expected. charming and beautiful. They are building another wing, with a spa, we'll definitely be back. The construction is almost complete and didn't bother us at all. No loud noises or debris in the area. It's going to be a great addition to their hotel.

    The Villa San Pedro was the highlight of our trip.

    Enchanting hotel, unfortunatly undergoing major changes.

    from

    We stayed at the Villa San Paolo this July (2004) for two nights. The room had a balcony which overlooked the pool and gave us a breathtaking view of San Gimignano. Excellent staff, great breakfast, beautiful room; it is like having your own villa. They are undergoing MAJOR construction. In my opinion this hotel is about to lose its charm. They are adding a "motel" type building in the back which does blend in well with the current structures.

    Don't stay here until construction has finished!

    from

    Much to our dismay, our Tuscan countryside vacation was cut short by the dawn til dusk construction currently underway at the Villa San Paolo. It appears the project has just recently started, and despite the grounds being breathtakingly beautiful, the staff being warm and welcoming, and the rooms being quite spacious given the price point we selected, its simply impossible to sleep past 6am due to construction -- a less than idea scenario for one's vacation. We transferred to a different room after our rude awakening on our first morning but found it no less loud. The Villa is simply too small to offer rooms that are out of construction earshot, which is just a shame because its a stunning property. The construction project will add another wing to the Villa along with a spa, so I would eagerly return once the job is complete. For now, however, our stay at Villa San Paolo rates as one of our most disappointing.
