Tenuta Guardastelle San Gimignano
The Territory around San Gimignano
During your stay on the estate you will have the unique opportunity to walk into San Gimignano, avoiding the hassle of having to find a parking space (always scarce and expensive).
Guardastelle is linked to San Gimignano by the Via Vecchia which, as its name suggests, is the old road. It is still unpaved but is a very pleasant walk from which you can enjoy a unique view. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the village, walking past cultivated fields and other farms. May and June are definitely the best months to appreciate one of nature’s wonders: thousands of fireflies twinkling in the fields will light up the way back, making you feel as though you are in a fairy tale!
The charm of this little village will take you back in time. It lies about a 40-minute drive from the estate; we recommend visiting it by public transport.
