Guestbook comments from the manager
Villa Il Vecchio Fienile
We really enjoyed our weeks stay here. It was in July, so quite hot so the large pool was very well used. It's a shame the view from the pool is covered by the fence, otherwise it would have been perfect. There were two couples staying, which I think is the max I would recommend. It says it can accommodate 6 but you'd have to walk through the extra bedroom to get downstairs. Large and spacious, quite cool inside (especially downstairs) meant we didn't need air conditioning. Handy as you have to pay extra per day for that. Nice well appointed kitchen, with everything you'd need. And a brochure with lots of local information which was great. Very much enjoyed our stay here, a little close to a road but seriously it didn't bother us at all, really no noise from it so don't let that put you off. And it's only 2kms from San Gimignano so really convenient for quick trips. I'd highly recommend this villa if you're looking to stay in this area.
