Tuscany holliday with a view
A car is a must have for staying here, as in many such places around Tuscany. Although the access road is partially unpaved, don't be affraid, its worth the drive here. However you have to do your grocery shopping before home cooking :) :) There are supermarkets in the near town of Poggibonsi. In the kitchen we missed a really sharp knife for preparing the meat for steaks :) :)
We got the apartment Il Sole which was nice and comfortable, with an interesting three level setting, exit right into the garden. From there we had a superb view to San Gimignano, which is about 15-20 min drive away. The kitchen wass fully equipped for home cooking. Mauro, the host was always at our service, as a welcome we even got a bottle of chianti. A good tip from him was to visit Florence by train (from Poggibonsi station) and not by car - it's way less fuss. Works also for a trip to Siena.
Beautiful place with unforgettable views and friendly hosts
Fantastic place in Tuscany
Kitchen could have been a bit more modern. Equipment looks puzzled . But clean and working!
Fantastic beautiful mansion in Tuscany. Lovely family running this place!
Great 3-night stay near San Gimignano with gracious host!
Great 3-night stay at Il Coltro! Mauro was an outstanding host, who was very welcoming and provided us with great tips for local restaurants and places to visit. Wonderful views to San Gimignano and surrounding area. Our Deluxe apartment/suite was exactly as advertised, very large/spacious and clean. Strong recommend!
Very nice stay on a beautiful location
The most beautiful spot in Tuscany!
Everything was perfect!
Beautiful location!!! And the owners of this amazing place are really helpful and nice! A home away from home! We will be back! :-)
Location, pool and quaint appartment
Owners of the place, Mauro and Donatella, create very welcoming feeling. Views are great and pool area excellent. Good location to have day trips around Toscana.
Lovely, relaxing stay in Tuscan countryside
Would have liked a roll of paper towels to use to wipe up and as napkins- and more toilet paper. We were given one roll for 4 days - we went to the store and bought toilet paper but then had more than we could use or take with us. It would just make things easier.
The apartment was large, grounds were nice, and the pool is beautiful - great place to relax after a day of sight seeing. Each apartment gets their own outside table/chairs and we were provided pool towels. We were greeted by the owner who gave us a tour of apartment and showed us how to use everything. He was friendly and either he or his wife were available if we had questions. Beautiful views of Tuscan countryside from our apartment. Great central location to explore Tuscany from.
We enjoyed a wonderful 4 nights at Il Coltro, this is a beautiful rural property. The apartment we had was spacious, tastefully furnished in keeping with Tuscany and spotlessly clean. The outdoors areas of the property are meticulously maintained and included a lovely pool area. Mauro & Donatella are friendly and welcoming hosts with great experience of the area which they are happy to share. At Mauro's recommendation we enjoyed a wine & food tasting with Raffaello at Azienda Agricola... what a fabulous experience! I can't recommend IL Coltro enough, we would love to stay again in the future.
Such a lovely place with wonderful hosts. It's a retreat- a home away from home. We got good recommendations for restaurants with god views and they even make the bookings for you.
It was a pleasure to stay here!
Idyllic setting with a view of San Gimignano. The grounds an pool were kept meticulously. Our studio apartment was perfect. Very clean and had everything we could possibly need. I loved the balcony bedroom in the beautifully tiled bathroom. The sunken kitchen was also very charming. Our host , Mauro, gave us many wonderful recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Including Rafaello's vineyard. The visit to the Vineyard was an experience that can't be repeated. We will treasure it our entire lives. We can't give a good enough recommendaction to Il Colten!!
