My friends and I stayed at Il Coltro for four nights while visiting Italy and couldn't have been more pleased. The apartments are beautiful and well-appointed. Mauro is a fantastic host and provided good information and local recommendations. We would definitely stay there again.
Beautiful Property/Super Service
We four (two couples) stayed in the Arches, one of Mario's apartments in his gorgeous property known as Il Coltro. While we initially preferred to find a house which we would have to ourselves, we were attracted to this property because of its location and appearance. We couldn't have been more pleased. From the start everything was perfect. Mario gave us excellent directions ( quite necessary given the rural location in the middle of vineyards) and greeted us on arrival. The Arches consist of two equally large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, perfect for two couples traveling together. While we were only one apartment in this old but charming building we had our own entry and yard area for sitting outside. It felt very private. The pool area and all of the grounds were beautifully maintained and the view of San Gmignano was gorgeous. While it felt very rural and remote, we were actually quite close to conveniences and attractions. San Gmignano was about a 10 minute drive. Certaldo also was 10 minutes away and from there a train to Florence or Sienna was easy. Certaldo itself was a treat with its funicular up to the walled town and the tourist free (relatively) streets of this medieval place.
While we day tripped to many sites it was always a pleasure to come home to the Arches, sit outside with a glass of wine, enjoy the two dogs on the property who are loving and gentle and breathe in the beautiful Tuscan air. I can't wait to return.
It is exquisitely maintained
We were treated like visiting family by the owners. The hospitality was unbelievable. It is a true find and we would return in an instant

Perfect escape in tuscany
Our stay at this Farm house was perfect. The property was very clean and well maintained. The pool was a great place to relax in the afternoon. The owners were very helpful in finding us places for dinner, and also set up an intimate wine tasting for us at a small local vineyard. I would If I return to Tuscany in the future I would stay here again and definitely recommend this property to others.
