  • We were so well taken care of by Fausto and Rikkaa. This is a family owned vineyard that makes some incredible wines. We had a great stay here for 2 nights and wished we had booked longer. Fausto...

  • I recently had the pleasure of staying here on a family trip with my dad, brother and sister in law. Guardastelle is a beautiful property nestled in the hills of Tuscany. With views for miles of the surrounding countryside, you feel as if you’re in your own private oasis, yet the town of San Gimignano is only a 15 minute walk away! Fausto and Susanna are excellent hosts and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We were greeted on arrival with a glass of their amazing wine and were truly made to feel like family. While we were there we did the wine tour and tasting, which I would highly recommend, and I can’t say enough about the breakfast that was included in our stay. A truly magnificent spread of fresh fruits, pastries, cold cuts and house made breads and cakes! Eggs and bacon were also made to order. A perfect way to start your day in Tuscany. We stayed here for a week and used it as a base while we traveled to neighboring areas. It’s a great location and Florence and Siena are less than an hours drive away. I would highly recommend Guardastelle to anyone looking for the quintessential Tuscan experience. I can’t wait to go back!
  • Our stay at Guardastelle was amazing. This family run business is very well managed and we’re super helpful. We came here for our honeymoon and the staff were super nice and friendly. We stayed in their apartment which is a separate housing unit on the property with great A/C units which we gladly used due to the heat wave. We were steps away from the pool (great temperature for hot days) and vineyard. We also did the their wine tour which included a tour of the vineyard and ended with a set lunch with 5 different wine tastings. The food was exceptional and the wines as well. Their olive oil is to die for. The proximity of their place is close to San Gimignano (25 min walk) and close/easy to get to the highways (we rented a car and travelled to nearby places). The views of the country side are incredible and breathtaking. We hope to visit again and will be telling all our friends about it.
  • Beautiful venue just a stone’s throw from San Gimignano with awesome views of the Tuscan countryside and the town itself. The hosts are so gracious and attentive. We stayed 2 nights with a wine tour and lunch one of the days. Guardastelle’s wines and olive oil were so good we had several bottles of each shipped home! The pool looked so inviting, but it was a little chilly in late March to swim but imagine it will be great In the summer months. Such a great place. Highly recommend!
  • Whilst staying in San Gimignano, we were eager to do a wine tour but weren't sure which one to chose. We found this one on Google and are so glad that we did! We walked from San Gimignano (there are two roads, one of which is much safer for walking but we didn't find it until our way back). Our guide was excellent. I can't remember her name but she is originally from Finland. So knowledgeable and friendly. The wine was beautiful and the food to accompany it was out of this world. Loved the home-made red onion jam (not something I thought I would like!). If you're in San Gimignano, book this, you won't regret it!
  • Wonderful place!!! We loved our stay and would definitely return. Our hosts and staff couldn’t be nicer. What a beautiful place and location. Breakfast was really good and they fixed us eggs and bacon in addition to the table filled with a variety of food. We were in Italy for a month and stayed in four places and this was a favorite. You can walk to town but in the evening it may be easier to drive if you have a car. It is about one mile and is uphill going to town. You can drive to many other areas/ towns and we noticed that some people were taking tours. It would be hard not to have a car here. Wish the swimming pool was still open for swimming (closes Sept. 30). Rooms are beautiful, very clean and well taken care of.
