Be welcomed by the warmth and comfort of our seven rooms
Set in the peaceful Chianti countryside, our eight rooms have maintained the typical charm of Tuscany’s farmhouses. Converted from the main house, old granary, and barns that make up the hamlet of Podere Sant'Elena, all the rooms have been carefully restored and decorated in traditional Tuscan style.
The terracotta floors, exposed-beam ceilings, and wrought iron, stone, and wood details evoke an air of times gone by that complement an equal sense of privacy, relaxation, and authenticity without sacrificing the latest comforts. All rooms are soundproofed and have a bathroom with shower, hairdryer, air conditioning and heating, satellite TV, safe, mini-bar and free Wi-Fi. You can also enjoy private parking.
At Podere Sant'Elena, a stay means entering an intimate, exclusive setting as well as enjoying the unrivaled views of the unspoiled countryside and of the magnificent San Gimignano with its towers offered by our rooms.
Our bright and spacious double rooms overlook the back garden or the pool and can accommodate up to 3 people with the possibility of adding a third single bed.
If you are looking for a breathtaking view of San Gimignano, these are the perfect rooms for you. Bright and spacious, they look out over the medieval towers of the village, only three kilometers away.
Our breakfast with a view
Every morning you can enjoy a hearty breakfast in the welcoming breakfast room or on the rooftop terrace overlooking San Gimignano. A rich sweet and savory buffet is available from 8.30-10 a.m. with fresh, natural products prepared daily by Gianni in our patisserie located in the center of San Gimignano.
For those who prefer a savory start to the day, there are croissants and cakes together with an aromatic cup of coffee as well as focacce (flat breads), cold cuts, and cheeses, not to mention the many other outstanding local products. Eggs may be cooked to order upon request.
