The property we rent was perfect
The property we rent was perfect. Even better than on the pictures. Everything was very clean and refreshed, it was roomy and we had all the necessary tools in the house. Big size bed was also really appreciated. Exterior was also great and beautiful, with an exceptional view on San Gimignano. Great terrasse in shade with a little nice garden. Lovely pool also. Great to have access to the washing machine. Owners are lovely but speak almost no English. Difficult to be understood sometimes. Best regards
We rented "Il Granaio" in the middle of August. Opening the french balcony doors in the combined kitchen/living room, sitting on the big table, we had a great view over vineyards and olive trees to the skyline of San Gimignano - bella Italia! Le Case is only for people comes by car. The rooms was big and very clean. A nice pool was still to use if we came back from sight seeing. Close to the main road but very quiet. All interesting spots in Toscana 1-2 hour around. The favoured of my wife was the Prada Outlet in Montevarchi, of course. Everything was perfect!
Peaceful Tuscan Paradise
Only minutes away from San Gimignano, this cottage was everything we hoped for. It was spacious, well equipped and the view was to die for. Every morning when we opened the shutters, looking out over vineyards and olive groves towards the Towers of San Gimignano we were in awe of the breathtaking landscape all around us. But it was not only the landscape that made our stay special, it was also the lovely, well kept grounds of this beautiful estate which made it so enjoyable. It was obvious that the owners took great care of their property. The attention to detail could be seen everywhere.
I need to mention that I am mobility challenged and that even the 2 steps into the Cottage would have been very difficult for me. The owner immediately created a ramp so that I could enter the Cottage with my scooter. This was beyond the call of duty and much appreciated. Many thanks to the owners for their help and caring.

Peace and Tranquility in Tuscany
It was very easy to book online direct with the company in Italy. We were welcomed by the very friendly owners who were always available to offer help and assistance. Our apartment was clean and well equipped and overlooked the town of San Gimignano. The weather was hot and we glad of the large pool. For touring around Tuscany you are perfectly placed with Florence, Pisa and Sienna less than an hour away. I have already recommended La Bella Tocana to my friends who are looking for a quiet holiday with the bustle of city life on the doorstep.
Nice detached cottage with amazing view
Il Granaio is situated in an estate near San Gimignano (a little town close to Siena). The surroundings are just amazing, so green and relaxing and the view is very beautiful, especially at sunsets.
The cottage is roomy and comfortable and furnished in a very good taste.
We also really appreciated the warm welcoming of the owners who are so kind and the help by La Bella Toscana office with the booking process. They really are nice and professional.
Nice apartment with great view
Dear Staff, Wij (2 personen) hebben Il Granaio bezocht. Het landgoed is op een 3km afstand van San Gimignano gelegen. Het huis en de appartementen zijn in een prachtige tuin aangelegd en de tuin is goed onderhouden, er is veel aandacht aan besteed. Het zwembad ziet er prima uit. De aangelegde tuin rondom het zwembad is een plaatje. De huisjes zijn divers, ons appartement is prima gelegen en vanaf de eettafel heb je een prachtig uitzicht op de stad waarbij de torens een plaatje zijn. De eigenaar en zijn vrouw zijn erg vriendelijk en staan je volledig ten dienste. Een must is de eigengemaakte rode wijn een echte aanrader. Cijfermatig zou ik de locatie een 9 geven, de uitrusting een 8 en de eigenaar en zijn vrouw een 9. Met vriendelijke groet,
