Worth the trouble to find this little gem!!Posted Jun 24, 2014
Initially got lost as it is a little out of the main town but it was well worth it. Drinks on arrival- beautiful traditional rustic small hotel. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating - lovely 3 course meal plus drinks . Swimming pool loungers outstanding scenery and views.

Too short a stayPosted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: Location, welcome,comfort and breakfast
We received a warm welcome. Very comfortable room beautiful location. Very close to San Gimignano which is a must everytine we come to Tuscany, the kids love the ice cream. We were recommended an excellent restaurant for the evening which we all enjoyed. In the morning there was a breakfast feast awaiting us. Excellent value and I will return soon Thank you ever so much.

Great cooking coursePosted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
This isn't luxury accommodation but it is adequate. What stands out are the hosts Fluvio and Katia who are both fantastic and they also do a great cooking course which is worth booking too. Also beautiful countryside.

Great spot in TuscanyPosted Sep 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
We arrived in pouring rain and Flavio welcomed us in with a glass of local wine. It was very cosy and homely. Flavio cooked up a storm and managed to feed 10 people despite the fact that we arrived not long beforehand! We shared along with the other guests a great (reasonably priced too) 4 course meal with accompanying wines in a very friendly atmosphere, enjoying the new company. Our room was quite spacious and pleasant, the shower a little too small but the same as elsewhere in Italy :) Breakfast was much better than the average Italian one. We really enjoyed our stay.

A Tuscany gemPosted Jul 25, 2013
Pros: Location, rustic feel of the b&b, Fulvio and Katia and the evening meal
Cons: Nothing to dislike
Location: Close to San Gimignano and Certoldo where you can take the train to Florence or Sienna. Can be difficult to locate so if lost call Fulvio.
This B&B with a good sized swimming pool is a gem. We have stayed three years running and have never been disappointed Fulvio and Katia make it special. You get a warm welcome with a drink on arrival and continuous attention as needed throughout your stay. They make you feel like one of the family and you can come and go as you like. Fulvio provides help and advice each morning on where to visit and what to see and the meal in the evening is wonderful and excellent value for money. You get a three course meal, different wine with each course, followed by liquor and coffee for less than the price of a poor one course meal and glass wine in San Gimignano. The atmosphere at the meal is just wonderful. If you like rustic Tuscany, with no distracting TV in the room, then this is the place to stay.

Il Vicario Overnight StayPosted Jul 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
Il Vacario is a wonderful place to stay. We booked just one night after we left Siena and had a great night with Flavio and his niece Katia. We opted to dine at Il Vacario instead of driving back in San Gimignano and what a bonus that was, a fantastic meal with accompanying wines sitting out in the courtyard on a beautiful Tuscan night. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here, it's well worth it.

Rural Hotel close to San GimignanoPosted Jul 3, 2011 on Hotels.com
Ideal location only 2 miles from San Gimi, very peaceful, but only a very short drive to the main tourist village of the area. Lovely pool with great views over the countryside. Fulvio and Katya cooked us a fantastic dinner with wine which was one of the highlights of our stay. They also hold cookery classes which I am sure would be very entertaining ! If you want to avoid the hustle and crowds of San Gimignano, but be very close to it, stay here, will will not be sorry.
