About the location

San Gimignano is an impressive walled medieval town perched high on a hill in the Tuscan countryside and home to Villa Alba, where you can enjoy a perfect Tuscan farmhouse stay.  

San Gimignano oozes history, with its labyrinthine cobbled alleyways, and 14 dizzyingly high ancient towers - just a fraction of the original 72 that once stood. 

These medieval towers offer spectacular views over the surrounding Tuscan countryside, particularly the 14th century Torre Grosse, which stands 170 feet tall. 

A highlight of this sleepy town is Rocca de Montestaffoli, a former fortress and convent, which now houses a wild garden within its tranquil Tuscan charm.  

Leisurely wander the cobbled lanes, which hold hidden artisan workshops featuring handmade ceramics and local photography. 

Due to its remarkable historic testimony to a past civilization, San Gimignano was named a UNESCO World Heritage site and remains a jewel in the Tuscan crown.

Villa Alba was a lovely B&B very close to San Gimignano. We could walk into the closest gate within 5 mins. The B&B is an old free standing home and the few rooms are large and very comfortable...
