The hotel was established in the 1970s by Mr. Leonetto Sabatini, who added a few rooms to the already famous Leonetto Restaurant. This establishment was certainly one of the first design hotels and was furnished about 40 years ago by a well-known interior designer, Francesco Ridolfi, who introduced a new concept of Tuscan country-style furniture - very delicate and sophisticated, almost romantic. The Sabatini family is still managing the hotel, which has been constantly refurbished and improved, without disturbing its original atmosphere. The hotel offers its guests the tranquillity of soundproofed rooms, furnishings in tones of white and rose, and guestrooms which are welcoming and full of warmth and provide all the comforts. The inner rooms feature pastel tones, delicate touches of an attractive country style. On summer evenings, guests may take advantage of the outdoor terrace, surrounded by the unique garden, tended to by the affectionate hand of Mamma Miriana. This family-friendly hotel comprises a total of 25 rooms over 2 floors, and facilities on offer to guests include a lobby area, a hotel safe, a bar, a TV lounge, a restaurant and Internet access. Guests may also take advantage of the room and laundry services, bicycle rental, parking and a playground for the younger guests.
An oasis of rural tranquillity, this hotel is located in the picturesque village of Pancole, around 5 km away from the centre of San Gimignano with its restaurants, links to the public transport network, shops and railway station. Surrounded by sloping hills covered with vineyards and olive orchards, it is the ideal location for a relaxing holiday in simple, unpretentious family surroundings. The hotel is the ideal place to spend a relaxing, quiet holiday, nevertheless excellently positioned for trips to Tuscany's most famous tourist attractions. The village was once the seat of the Carolingian counts and is now famous for its Sanctuary dating back to 1600 with the precious Madonna of Pancole, painted in the 15th century by Pier Francesco Fiorentino.
