The accommodations were very nice. The room was spacious, clean, and quaint. It was quiet and had an excellent air-conditioning and heating system. The location was perfect being 15 min San Gimignano. Fulvio and Katia were outstanding hosts. They offered wine upon arrival, itineraries for local visits, and suggestions for restaurants. Fulvio had a great sense of humor. Katia's cooking...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 November 2016

I came here with my wife spending a few days in Tuscany. The hosts were excellent and each morning provided us with places to see and things to do. The rooms we had were spacious and comfortable and the views from the room of San Gimignano’s Towers and the surrounding vineyards were amazing. Beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

My wife and I just returned from the fabulous cooking class at beautiful IL Vicario located about 4 miles from the city walls of San Gimignano. We learned how local pasta is hand made and rolled without a machine as well as two scrumptious dressings made from scratch, made sampled local wine and got to eat what we made. We...

We absolutely loved it here. My guy and I were celebrating our anniversary as well as my birthday and we chose Il Vicario as a home base. From the moment we stepped foot on the property, we knew we were in for a treat. We preferred a sunny room versus a private room and Katia was so gracious and immediately...

My daughter and I took a day trip from Florence to take this cooking class. We loved everything about it! The area was amazingly beautiful and a needed retreat from the city. Flavio was an excellent teacher and a pleasure to get to know. Maybe it was the entire experience, but we agreed that this was the best food we...

My niece and I stayed at Il Vicario for a few days in March. Fulvio is a terrific host! Rooms are comfortable and clean. Views from the property are beautiful! We had dinner here one night and also took the cooking class. Just a delightful experience. It was everything we thought our Tuscan experience would be. Fulvio is knowledgeable about...

We were two couples spending a few days in Tuscany. Fulvio was an excellent host and each morning provided us with places to see and things to do.

I received a recommendation of Il Vicario on Trip Advisor when I was planning my trip to Italy. I wanted the Tuscan cooking school experience and this locale was highly recommended. I absolutely concur! This is a family owned B&B and the niece Katia does the instructions and her uncle Flávio cleans up. There were eight of us on our...
