Wonderful hotel, wish we could have spent more time and watched the sunset from the pool. Bit of a walk from the city center, but there are great places to eat and shop along the way, and having a quiet hotel with this kind of view is hard to beat. If you don't want to walk, use a taxi this...

I just read some of the other reviews and it sounds like they were at a different hotel than us! Our stay was lovely. The location outside the city wall is great if you are driving a car since you can't drive into the city. Ample parking at the hotel and an easy walk into the city for sightseeing. Our...

My wife and I stayed a third night after booking only 2. The hotel was everything that Rick Steve's said it was. In addition the breakfast was far better than others we had on our 9 day stay. We did wish that the front desk was more proficient in English, but given the location, the view, the cleanliness and price,...

I was so optimisitic about the hotel.....The location is really not bad...a mere 6 minute walk to the gates. Volterra is such a small town, that is nothing! I guess if you had luggae it would be a poor and exhausting experience. I found the lack of amenities to be a problem....No soap or shampoo in my room. There was...

The Villa is at the far end of town & out the gates. A fair walk if you are dragging suitcases along the cobbled roads. The man at the front desk never looked at us, never said "bonjourno", "welcome" or smiled, he just said give me your passprts & I'll give them back to you in 5 minutes. He didn't...

We stayed in mid September 2011. It is a family owned and run hotel. Some family speak fair English and some almost none but all are friendly. Silvano was very helpful. The housekeeping and grounds staff speak no English as in most overseas hotels. We paid about 90 Euros. There was a wedding one night and they were a little...

Hotel Albergo Villa Nencini had some nice features - for example, balconies and a pool. But it seemed overpriced. The hotel is outside of the San Gimignano gates, down the hill some ways. We don't mind "old", that's why we were touring Italy! But the hotel looks like it got remodeled sometime in the 80s in a German/Swiss style and...

We stayed here this year in mid September. The room was a good size although the shower was quite small. We stayed for a Friday and Saturday night and although there was a reception on Saturday we were not bothered by any noise. The grounds were very pretty and the views were fantastic. We did eat dinner at their restaurant...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a Rick Steves' tour group. The rooms are large and comfortable, once you figure out how to lock and unlock the double French doors. The bath is tiny and has limited shelf space for toiletries for two women, but adequate. Breakfast is quite good and the staff were helpful....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
From 17th century, over the etruscan walls, the villa enjoys a quiet simple, where the view is lost in the hills to see the sea and where the charm of the sunset every evening gives us a unique spectacle. Equipped with 35 rooms of different categories and a great restaurant, the hotel is the ideal choice for individual guests to organized groups; owners can also organize wedding party by the pool. The hotel is the perfect place for lovers of good food and good wine and in the tavern you can taste and buy from a wide selection of wines. The complex formed from the original villa and then later expanded, is inserted in a natural setting with a large swimming pool available to guests during the summer. In the background is a unique profile of the grove of oaks and olive trees, under whose shade cooling off on hot summer days. The Nencini family, owner of the structure, from over 20 years guarantees a carefull management. ... more   less
