Via Monteoliveto, 46 , San Gimignano, 53037 Italy (Show map)

About

In the vicinity of the medieval centre of San Gimignano, nestled in the rolling hills of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside, Agriturismo Niccolai is perfectly located for exploring Tuscany’s most prized art towns such as Siena (30Km), Florence (35Km), and Volterra (25Km). This farmhouse is part of Azienda Agricola Palagetto, a local concern which produces exclusive wines and fine extra-virgin olive oil, whilst offering high standard holiday accommodation in six comfortable double rooms and two Suites fitted with all modern comforts for a relaxing holiday in the heart of the countryside. The farmhouse Palagetto di Sotto is located on the hillside 800m from the medieval town of San Gimignano and its beautiful towers. It is surrounded by the estate vineyards and olive groves, and immersed in the large and immaculate gardens of the tiny rural hamlet of Villa Palagetto, a group of ancient buildings dating back to the fourteenth century. Originally farmers’ houses, they have been carefully renovated and turned into comfortable holiday accommodation for guests seeking for a relaxing holiday in a peaceful haven, enjoying genuine local food and excellent wines.

fine d'anno tra le colline del Chianti

4.0 on January 05, 2014

Soggiorno piacevole per gentilezza, cordialità e professionalità, cibo e vini curati. Ampi e incantevoli panorami sulle colline circostanti. Un piccolo appunto sulla scelta di qualche piatto per il cenone di Capodanno. E' nostra intenzione ritornare.


September in Paradise

We and two other couples stayed for five glorious days in October of 2011. The room could not have been more comfortable or clean. Service was beyond excellent...it was friendly! The food was delicious, both breakfast and dinner. The wine that we drank was wonderful and poured generously. From every vantage point-the scenery, the people, the wine, and the food, we could not have had a more enjoyable stay. We hope to be able to return one day!


FANTASTIC !
