After serving as a Franciscan convent and then the residence of the noble Strozzi family, the Collegiata has been converted into a fine hotel, with no expense spared in the process. Arched, multipane windows look out on the surrounding park. All the guest rooms (some with private balconies) are furnished with a mix of wood and upholstered antiques in warm browns and reds, and precious tapestries. Bathrooms have large whirlpool baths. A summer restaurant occupies the deconsecrated
church, with tables set out near the entrance.

very nice hotel but beware its very quiet in the evenings. Food is very good and the service is spot on. Pool could do with a revamp given the quality of the hotel. When we stayed there was building work going on a hotel/apartments behind the property which spoilt ambience so check before you go.

The atmosphere was terrific at this quiet hotel. We were treated very well - the service was top notch. Close to San Gimignano - we only wished we had time to stay more than one night! We had two rooms - and although we paid extra to upgrade one room for the adults- there wasn't much difference in quality. Both were equally well appointed - and if we were doing it over I wouldn't have bothered to upgrade the room. A nice taste of Tuscany!
