Il Rosolaccio

San Gimignano, Siena
Bed & Breakfast

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


6 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 3


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 swing set. The rest will simply delight in the serenity.

We stayed just one night at Il Rosolaccio but wished we had been able to stay a few more. The owners, Steve and his mother Ingrid, have developed Il Rosolaccio to a very high standard indeed, and they strike absolutely the right balance between the high level of service that you would expect of a classy country house hotel, and the informal atmosphere of staying as a guest in a friend's comfortable country home in the most beautiful setting in Tuscany. The home cooked food was delicious, the staff very friendly indeed, the rooms spotless and very comfortable. All in all a most memorable stay.
