This is a small villa with 6 well furnished and maintained rooms. The breakfast is the usual continental breakfast and all the product were of a good standard.

If we could give Villa Alba six stars we would! The villa is very cute, the owner's loving touch is seen in everything, as everything is well kept and lovingly decorated. Piero and his family and help are very nice, caring people and they made our stay welcoming and fun. The swimming pool with the view of the hills was... More

Lovely decorated rooms and villa - all kept in a charming style. Great, helpful and warm staff. Swimming pool was clean, which we had sole use due to limited number of rooms. Close to town centre, so easy to eat out. Ask for Vinnyard tour.

Having booked a room for 2 nights at this property the date for our visit arrived. We drove for 4 hours with stops along the way. We had informed the owners, as they had requested, the time of our expected arrival. The villa, looking unkempt and unwelcoming, was locked. We called the number on the wall, the gentleman on the...

Good morning , we are very sorry for the inconvenient. We would like to explain our standard procedure, because in our opinion there have been misundertandings. We asked you if you booked, because we didn't know you and therefore you could be other clients without booking. The room and the bath were clean and the bed had been made. On... More

Piero and Simona were fantastic hosts, friendly and helpful. We could not fault the hotel, everywhere was spotless and the decor in the room and the breakfast room was charming. Probably one of the best value for money hotels we have ever stayed in, and would certainly make it our first choice if we go back to Tuscany. Can't speak... More

Everything about Villa Alba is beckoning: the gracious owners, the comfortable rooms, the incredible location outside the town walls, the well-tended gardens and pool, and the value. We want to return one day and highly recommend it.

A wonderful B&B just outside the walls of San Gimignano. It's takes about 7 min to walk to SG. Everything at Villa Alba is done, decorated and cared for with love to small details that made us feel very comfortable and at home right away. The rooms are clean, the bathroom is modern.
