  • About this holiday

    The three star Hotel Le Renaie is situated 5km from the charming mediaeval village of San Gimignano, characterised by the numerous rising towers and quaint squares. Decorated with a traditional colour palette, rustic furnishings, and cotto tiles, the light and airy rooms are well-suited to a wide range of guests, including those travelling with children. Its rural outlook ensures it is perfectly situated for exploration of the Tuscan countryside and wine villages, but still within easy driving distance of the larger cities of Siena and Florence.

    Our opinion

    Hotel le Renaie is a relaxing, comfortable hotel in a glorious location which offers excellent value for money.

    Hotel description

    The Hotel le Renaie enjoys a splendid, quiet, rural location in the hamlet of Pancole. The Renaie is about 26 years old and although it is modern in style, it does have tremendous appeal. This 3 star hotel provides very comfortable holiday accommodation, well-suited to a long stay and to being a base for day excursions throughout Tuscany. All the air-conditioned bedrooms are very clean and cheerful. Seven of the rooms also have large terrace-balconies which overlook the front of the hotel (available at a supplement). The hotel lounge has a cool, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere with its open fire-place and cosy armchairs. Beyond the lounge there is a small bar, and then the hotel’s restaurant, called the Leonetto, which justifiably enjoys excellent local acclaim but is mainly open for lunch. The hotel has two sister restaurants nearby for dinner. The outdoor swimming pool and garden add to your enjoyment of this comfortable and well-run hotel. Le Renaie is an ideal centre for relaxation, and soaking in the Tuscan atmosphere.
