Sublime views across the Tuscan countryside, seasonal food and the kindest host. Children are welcome, oenophiles will be in heaven

High in the Tuscan hills, this B&B revels in its surrounds, perched high above the medieval towns of San Gimignano and Certaldo with only the occasional purr of a tractor tilling the vineyards breaking the silence. Some will flock here for the pool, set in the grounds to make the most of the spectacular views, perhaps retreating to the wisteria-clad terrace for an afternoon riposo. Others will come for the food: breakfast, served in the cosy dining room or on the terrace, comes with jams made from their own fruit trees and homemade granola; the seasonal dinners include vegetables from their garden, their own wine and next door's olive oil. Happily fed you can retreat to the distinguished living room with huge sofas and open fires and then to elegant rooms with excellent beds and views across the countryside. Kind Martin is on hand to point you to the best cycling spots, wine tasting and walks. Children will love the pets and their own play park. The rest will simply delight in the serenity.
