Super!

☺☺☺☺☺

Die Anreise hat super geklappt. Wir wurden bei unserer Ankunft vor den Stadttoren abgeholt. Man kann bis vor das Haus fahren um das Gepäck abzuladen. Unbedingt die Einzelgarage mieten. Das ist billiger als auf den sonnenbeschienenen Touristenparkplätzen und das Auto ist erst noch sicher eingeschlossen. Die Wohnung ist einmalig gelegen - besser gehts nicht. Sie ist etwas küh, was im Sommer bistimmt sehr angenehm ist. Sie bietet alles was man braucht. Man könnte problemlos kochen. Das wäre aber schade, weil die vielen Restaurants viele toskanische Köstlichkeiten bieten. La Vecchia Mura ist ein Besuch wert. Tolle romantische Aussichtasterrasse, sehr gute Bedienung und ein einmaliges Preis Leistung Angebot.

Super apartment, perfect location, wonderful owner

☺☺☺☺☺

My wife and another couple stayed in this wonderful apartment for eight days. Giuliana, the owner could not have been nicer with us. When we read the reviews prior to booking, many previous renters recommended reserving the parking garage, you have to pay for parking in San Gimignano in any event so knowing exactly where to park every time you go out is really nice. You must try the world prize winning gelato at Dondoni on Cistern Piazza and the pizza at the little hole in the wall place, turn left on the main drag three or four doors down on the left hand side.

top place to stay in san gimignano

☺☺☺☺☺

We have just enjoyed 3 nights at "la Torretta", thoroughly pleased with our choice. The apartment is so well located, comfortable and well equipped. Guilianna is so helpful and very organised with a book of recommendations and suggestions, we wish we were there longer to try more. We would definitely stay here again if in San Gimignano

super location and host

☺☺☺☺☺

The house was in the main square and was in a perfect location. There were views from the bedroom widows of the square and the duomo, and from the balcony over the countryside. Absolutely brilliant. The inside of the house was fantastic and with a kitchen and washer was a perfect base to see San Gimignano and the local area. Giullliana met us and helped us to find our way and get settled, and was always available to help with any questions we had. She was a wonderful host and is a lovely lady. I can't recommend this place enough. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful.

Ottimo

☺☺☺☺☺

Il posto è veramente eccezionale. Proprio nel centro storico di San Giminiano. L'apartamente è molto comodo, pulito e tutto funziona benissimo. Giuliana è stata molto gentile, malgrado che noi siamo arrivati in ritardo lei ci ha atteso con molta buona volontà. È stata gentilissima!

Excellent home away from home

☺☺☺☺ We really enjoyed San Gimignano. The apartment made an excellent home away from home. It was in a central location close to all amenities. The fact that the apartment also had it's own private garage - available for a fee - was much better than finding a parking spot each day. Having the apartment cleaned once per week was a nice touch. Giuliana , the owner, was always available and not only occasionally dropped by with gifts but also generously gave us a lift back to our car with our luggage when we were leaving.

L'authenticité du lieu et l'accueil.

☺☺☺☺☺

Nous avons été très chaleureusement accueillis par Giuliana, dans une ancienne demeure,au coeur de San Gimignano. L'appartement est spacieux et très bien équipé. Giuliana est très attachée à sa ville, elle nous a donné de précieuses informations, et nous avons pu profiter au mieux de San Gimignano et des environs. Excellente adresse.

Tutto perfetto

☺☺☺☺☺

L'appartamento è in ottima posizione, ci si sente piacevolmente "circondati" dalle mitiche torri. Equipaggiato, funzionale e molto pulito. La proprietaria è gentile e disponibile con gli ospiti, da cittadina di San Gimignano ha molte buone indicazioni e suggerimenti da dare.

Unforgetable Stay in San Gimignano

☺☺☺☺☺

We stayed six nights in LaTorretta apartment and we were very comfortable there. San Gimignano is a lovely city and we felt immersed in Italian life. Great food, wine, great views of the countryside, shopping and of course, gelato! Our second floor windows gave us great views of town life - street musicians, wedding celebrations, festivals. We took day trips out of the city and returned "home" to enjoy fantastic meals - so many restaurants to choose from. We also shopped at the local market for ingredients to cook in the fully stocked kitchen of the apartment. Guiliana was an excellent hostess and had prepared a very comfortable place for us to stay. We will never forget it! If we ever return to Italy we would definitely consider staying at La Torretta again.

Très bien

☺☺☺☺☺

La description du logement est la bonne, idéalement situé en plein centre historique, bien équipé et spacieux. Nous recommandons le garage en plus car se garer est très compliqué (affluence et tout est payant). Celui-ci n'est pas loin. La propriétaire est très agréable, de bon conseil et disponible, un guide très complet pour découvrir la ville nous a été donné. Attention cependant car le village est très touristique et donc bruyant jusqu'à 23h minuit. Nous y retournerons avec plaisir.

Old World charm and 21st century hospitality!

☺☺☺☺☺

San Gimignano is the quintessential Tuscan hill town--a small community of towers and plazas, with hundreds of years of history within its walls. Our clean and spacious apartment, in a historical building adjacent to the main square, was a perfect home base for exploring both the town and the surrounding communities. Guiliana's place had lots of room for 2 couples to be together--in the large kitchen, or the living room--or separate, with 2 lovely bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. Giuliana provided us with information about both the apartment and the nearby sights. Her restaurant recommendations were jewels. She was friendly and helpful; we knew that she was there, if needed, for any question that might arise. Modern amenities like a garage (small extra fee) and free internet were also a big plus. I would strongly recommend Giuliana's Stone House apartment to anyone interested in the best of old and new, a truly memorable delight.

wonderful holiday

☺☺☺☺☺

This apartment was charming and so convenient- right off the main square (Piazza delle Erbe). Giuliana was so kind and helpful! We had four lovely nights there to use the apartment as our base for visiting Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, and the other Tuscan hill towns. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and convenient. Will return someday!

Just one piazza from the center of town

☺☺☺☺☺

My family of five stayed three nights at Apt La Torretta. We LOVED the place and especially the location, one piazza away from the Duomo and La Cisterna--the center of town. Both bedrooms have windows opening up to quiet Piazza delle Erbe and views of San Gimignano's towers. Giuliana, a retired schoolteacher, is a kind and wonderful hostess; she met us to show us how to work everything and made recommendations for dinner. Later she helped us contact a cab driver when the bus schedule wasn't good for our plans. San Gimignano was a great base camp for visiting other cities in the area: Florence, Siena, Pisa. For planning: The closest train station is Poggibonsi, a short bus ride from San Gimignano. We also caught the first night (preview) festivities of the town's medieval fair--the third weekend in June.

Beautiful

☺☺☺☺☺

Amazing-Do not hesitate to stay here. Guiliana is honest and very dependable, she greeted us upon our arrival to help us get situated in the apartment. I feel the rate is very reasonable compared to a hotel. We took a cab to the apartment. I would recommend that as the streets are very very narrow and it would be rather hard to drive inside the walls. We went in June and it was hot but not unbearable. Note there are only fans-no A/C. The town of San Gimignano is charming beyond words. The views from the room are of an ancient church and the town square. The views from a short distance from the apartment of the hills are breathtaking. Also, the town is so romantic with small cafes and restaurants. We visited a near by wine vineyard which was fun. This trip was unforgettable as our daughters fiancee proposed while we were here in San Gimignano!!

Like living on the set of a historic reenactment

☺☺☺☺☺

This apartment is an oasis in an ancient building to the side of the Cathedral. Step outside the front door and you are surrounded by the amazing medieval towers. Sit out on the back verandah and you can enjoy in tranquillity a beautiful view over rooftops to the Tuscan hills beyond. The apartment is traditionally furnished. The shower works well and the kitchen is more than adequate. We received a warm welcome from the owner and a follow up call to make sure we were settled in. Would certainly go back.

Great Stay in Tuscany

☺☺☺☺☺

We stayed three nights in La Torretta apartment very near the central piazza and close to everything you could possibly want to see or do in San Gimignano. La Torretta is clean, spacious for four people, fully equipped and graciously hosted by Giuliana, who personally attended to all details for our arrival, our stay and our departure. Giuliana is so kind, caring, generous and helpful. She also sent information in advance about the apartment, the city, local history, restaurants and sites to visit. San Gimignano is one of the most picturesque cities in all of Italy, rich in history and a great place to stay and ideal for day-trips to other parts of Tuscany. The people are so very friendly and helpful and the food, wine and gelato are fantastic. Three things you need to do to ensure you enjoy your next trip to Northern Tuscany: stay in San Gimignano; stay at La Torretta; and be hosted by Giuliana. Thanks Giuliana!

Beautiful apartment in great location

☺☺☺☺☺

The apartment was just off the square next to the main Church in San Gimignano. Even though it was so central it was very quiet. The owner met us at the apartment and provided lots of useful information prior to arrival, including a guide book she emailed to us. She was very friendly and provided excellent service. The apartment was comfortable and well equipped and had everything we could wish for. Would definitely come back here again. We used public transport and got there by bus which was not a problem as there are quite a lot of busses to Poggibonsi, which has links to trains and buses to Florence, Siena and Pisa.

San Gimignano Giuliana is wonderful!

☺☺☺☺☺

We (3 of us) stayed in San Gimignano for the last week of April, 2015. Guiliana Taddei was the owner of the apartment we rented during that week. Lucky us. The apartment perfectly located in the city, no more than a 10-15 minute walk to every site in San Gimignano. The apartment itself, La Torretta, has two bedrooms (with lots of storage), 2 bathrooms (with showers), a living room, and a kitchen. But who wants to cook when there are some of the best restaurants in the town? Every meal we ate in SG was terrific. There is also a washing machine. A garage just outside the city walls is also available for 10 Euros/day. If you have a car, you cannot park inside the city anyway. I believe public parking was 15 Euros/day. The apartment was very homey and perfect for our needs. The shuttered windows could be opened to the city below for some great views of the activities. It's a 40-step climb to the apartment so it's best not to be on crutches. Guiliana herself was a super owner and hostess. While she doesn't speak English (we WERE in Italy!), her grandson is a great translator so that was never a problem. She is a warm and caring person and is anxious to help in any way she could. If you are driving, she will meet you at a pre-arranged time just outside Parking Lot 3 (P3) and lead you and your car into the city so you can drop your suitcases off. Driving inside the walls of San Gimignano can be a little intimidating with the throngs of people. Overall, the La Torretta apartment was an ideal accommodation for our week in San Gimignano.

Beautiful town and apartment; would love to return.

☺☺☺☺☺

My husband and I and a friend our ours stayed in this charming apartment last May. We loved everything about the apartment and San Gimignano. We walked to everything, felt like we were townsfolk, and totally immersed ourselves. Everyone is so friendly, the food is outstanding (don't miss La Mandragola), the view from the Wine Museum is spectacular, and sitting with a drink in the piazza is absolutely wonderful. Giuliana is a superb host and we truly appreciated all her help; especially the lovely drawing she gave us upon our departure. We recommend this apartment and destination without hesitation.

Ottima scelta

☺☺☺☺☺

Abbiamo prenotato per puro caso questo appartamento e la scelta non poteva essere migliore! Appartamento molto confortevole con una posizione fantastica! Posizione strategica anche per la visita a diverse località turistiche della zona. La Maestra Giuliana, proprietaria dell'appartamento, è stata gentilissima e disponibile per ogni esigenza ( dalle indicazioni culinarie a quelle logistiche). Sicuramente da consigliare e da tornare

Lovely Apartment

☺☺☺☺☺

We have been fortunate to visit San Gimignano many times over the years and loved it just as much this time as all the others. It was wonderful to stay within the walls, and so close to shopping, dining and gelato! There were four of us (two couples) so it was perfect to have two bathrooms. There is a large kitchen and several TV's, although we did not watch them, as it was more interesting to people watch from our windows. Apartment is clean and roomy. It was wonderful to have a washing machine and a large line to dry our clothes. The Owner could not have been nicer. We did rent the garage and I would truly suggest doing that. We took the train to Florence for the day, drove to Siena and visited other towns, easy to travel from with the train station in Poggibonsi. The only caution is that there are a lot of steps, but that is just how it is in these lovely towns. Would stay in this lovely apartment again for sure!! Thank you for your hospitality!

Fastástica experiencia

☺☺☺☺☺

Somos una familia de España con dos niñas de 10 y 6 años. Hemos estado en la casa de Giuliana una semana (del 24 al 31 de octubre). La experiencia ha sido muy buena. La vivienda esta situada en un enclave excepcional en la plaza central de San Gimignano. Este es un precioso pueblo medieval con todas las comodidades (buen supermercado, panadería, farmacia,etc). Al mismo tiempo el pueblo está ubicado en el centro de la región facilitando las visitas turísticas a Florencia, Pisa, Siena, Región de Chianti, Volterra, etc) que queda todo a menos de una hora en coche. A la puerta de la vivienda se puede llegar en coche para descargar maletas y compras. Nosotros alquilamos asimismo una plaza de parking muy cerca de la casa a un precio muy económico de 10 euros por día. La casa nos la entregaron muy limpia. Es luminosa y dispone de todas las comodidades. Reitero que nuestra experiencia ha sido fantástica y nos ha encantado la vivienda, San Gimignano y el viaje a la Toscana. Como todo es mejorable estaría bien que dispusiera de wifi. No obstante la mayoría de las cafeterías del pueblo disponen de wifi gratuito.

Perfekte Unterkunft für Toskanaurlaub

☺☺☺☺☺

Wir nutzten San Gimignano als Basis für unsern Toskana Urlaub. Dazu war die Unterkunft ideal. Insbesondere San Gimignano ist tagsüber doch sehr von Touristen überlaufen, aber nachdem die Reisegruppen verschwunden sind entfaltet sich das Flair dieser sehr schönen Stadt. Um dies zu genießen ist diese Unterkunft im Herzen von San Gimignano ideal. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die sehr nette, kinderliebe und zuvorkommende Gastgeberin!

Wonderful apartment that exceeded expectations

☺☺☺☺☺

October 2014. The first thing that I must say about our stay at La Torretta in San Gimignano is that there were almost no negative things to be found. The apartment was located in the heart of this quaint yet lively town. The apartment had three floors with no elevator- but we preferred it that way! The kitchen was large and very well equipped for anything we could possibly need. It came to mind that the owner of the apartment equipped and decorated as if it were her own apartment and not just a rental. Every Thursday there was an open marketplace just 10 meters away from the apartment which was absolutely wonderful as we could buy any fresh fruit, vegetables, meats and cheeses for the day. A huge plus was that there were two bathrooms in the 1 bedroom apartment which almost never happens in our travels! The entire apartment was absolutely sparkling with how clean it was, from the kitchen to the snow-white linens and towels. The bed was extremely comfortable which is a rarity in Italian apartments for rent. The only thing that was a slight inconvenience was the lack of WiFi. Also, it is better to know a bit of Italian as the Hostess speaks very little English. We had the option to rent out a private garage for 10 euro per day and we were so glad we did because all of the parking lots were more expensive and we were also guaranteed a spot since we were traveling during the holiday season. If we ever travel to San Gimignano again we will most definitely stay here again and I am recommending this spot to all of my friends and family.

Séjour mémorable à IL BORGO ANTICO

☺☺☺☺☺

Nous avons reçu un accueil extrêmement chaleureux de Giuliana, la propriétaire de l’appartement Il Borgo Antico à San Gimignano. Elle nous a accueillis au parking, puis conduits personnellement à l’appartement. Un membre de sa famille a monté nos bagages à l’étage. Elle nous a donné de multiples informations sur San Giminiano (histoire, sites d’intérêt, cartes géographiques, restaurants…) et la région. Elle a été très disponible tout au long de notre séjour. Elle nous a d’ailleurs envoyé plusieurs de ces informations avant même notre arrivée. Nous avons profité de San Giminiano, ville classée patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco, puisque l’appartement est situé en plein cœur de la ville, donc au centre de tous les points d’intérêt. De plus, ce fut un bon point de départ pour visiter la Toscane (Florence, Greve in Chianti, Montalcino…) L’appartement était à la hauteur de nos attentes (très propre, accueillant, grandes chambres, et avec toutes les commodités). Au départ, Giuliana nous a offert une gravure de San Giminiano en souvenir. Quelle belle attention! Nous recommandons fortement l’appartement Il Borgo Antico à tous les vacanciers.

Magical Holiday

☺☺☺☺☺

29 luglio 2014. San Gimignano is a magical place, and it was a real privilege to stay within the walls. The apartment is in a lovely position and it was great to just walk around at all times of the day. Our favourite restaurant was La Stella, and we ate there most nights. The apartment was clean and comfortable, but what made this apartment exceptional was the owner Guiliana. The booking process was clear and efficient, she met us and led us to the apartment, she carefully explained many things without speaking much English, and accompanied me on the last day so I could drive in and load luggage. Her grandson kindly joined her and translated lots of useful information for us. She was like a favourite Aunt and looked after us well. We stayed for 4 nights, and look forward to returning.

Le village est authentique et historique, bien situé pour des ballades en Toscane, et pour les visites de Florence et Sienne. Les vignerons produisent d'excellents vins à goûter dans les restaurants très agréables de la ville.

We felt like locals

☺☺☺☺☺

22 giugno 2014. The apartment is right in the historical centre of San Gimignano - perfect for touring the surrounding hill towns. Juliana is a wonderful hostess. Although she speaks limited English, she tried very hard to ensure our stay was enjoyable - even given us apricots from her tree. The apartment's setting is wonderful - after the tourists have gone home, you feel like a local. Walking the streets and alleyways throughout the city was amazing, with a photo opportunity every few yards. The views from the walls are wonderful, and typical of Tuscan scenery. We paid the extra for Juliana's garage and recommend it to others, as parking is expensive around the town and can be a bit of a nightmare trying to find. Restaurants in the town are plentiful, with wonderful outdoor settings. Ask Juliana where the supermarket is, as it provides cheap supplies to be enjoyed in the apartment, including good wine. The apartment was clean, with original designs and furnishings. There are a couple of flights of stairs to negotiate, so be mindful if you have physical problems. You might ask Juliana where the washing machine is and how to work it. We had trouble both finding it and using it but Juliana 'came quickly to the rescue'. We had a wonderful time in her apartment and would throughly recommend it to other travellers who want a base to tour Tuscany. The peace and tranquility of the town centre at dusk is amazing, to say nothing of the 'world's best ice cream', available in the square. We spent 4 nights here but could have stayed longer. Thank you Juliana for your wonderful hospitality.

wonderful apartment

☺☺☺☺☺

We had 10 days in this wonderful apartment. It is clean and spacious. It's location is perfect - close enough to be a part of the excitement of the fiesta but not too noisy (apart from the morning bell but you get used to that). Great for the Thursday market which was amazing! Not sure when we will be back but we will definitely use la Toretta again. Thanks Giuliana you are a lovely generous lady.xx

Right in town, slept like a baby

☺☺☺☺☺

May 2014. This apartment is central, right off the square by the Duomo in San Gimignano. We were four ladies and this place was perfect for our needs. We stayed 6 nights and did some day trips out for 4 of the days (Certaldo one day, Volterra one day, Firenze one day and a winery out of town one day). What was nice was coming home to the apartment and San Gimignano and eating in town after all the crowds were gone and not having to drive. Guiliana had good restaurant recommendations in the information she emailed and had in the apartment.

The balcony has a great view, it isn't big enough for a table, but you can move the kitchen table chairs out and enjoy an awesome sunset.

Even though it was on the square it was very quiet at night and I slept great.

The kitchen was well furnished. We easily walked to the grocery to get breakfast items which we ate in most days. There is a cafe down the main street with Wi-Fi so we sometimes would go there for another coffee and a facebook post in the mornings before starting our day.

Simply Outstanding!

☺☺☺☺☺

7 marzo 2014. Our stay in this apartment was outstanding based on its location, quality, and Giuliana. Centrally located and in the plaza next to the Duomo, you are walking distance to everything that this charming town has to offer. Furthermore, the town is yours in the morning and evening after the tourist hordes arrive and depart. For quality, this apartment was very clean, organized and offered great views of the piazza and the countryside. Finally, Giuliana was very gracious and sweet to myself and my family. . .we felt like we were part of the town and their culture. She was extremely nice and responsive to us and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting her. Thank you Giuliana for helping us have the greatest vacation we could have had. We love San Gimignano, Tuscany and Italy. Thanks for being so patient to a couple of Americans who literally spoke 2 words of Italian. If you want an outstanding lodging experience in San Gimignano, you need to stay at this apartment.

Enjoyable Stay

☺☺☺☺

24 ottobre 2013. We stayed in Giuliana's apartment in late October. This apartment was conveniently located in the centre of the town and was well stocked and well decorated. If you have a car, book the additional locked garage parking. The town is charming and there is a lot to do and see within easy driving distance. We really enjoyed our trip to Siena as well as just taking in the beautiful countryside. We loved the town of San Gimignano and its people. It was always nice to come back to our apartment and enjoy some local wine on the balcony overlooking the Tuscan hills as well as the hospitality at Cum Quibus. We are looking forward to another visit to Tuscany and staying at one of Giuliana's apartment again. I would highly recommend the experience of staying in this town and this apartment.

We Loved San Gimignano

☺☺☺☺☺

28 settembre 2013. We had a great stay in this apartment, we spent six weeks traveling all over Italy and San Gimignano was one of our favourite's. Its location was great for traveling on day trips to the larger centres around the area. We stayed for a week and would have been happy to stay for two, as the town has just the right balance of somewhere to chill out, but with all the services and things to see and do. The apartment is very clean and spacious and the owner was lovely and very helpful. I would highly recommend this apartment. Thankyou Hadyn and family Australia

Hadyn B. 28 settembre 2013

Wonderful stay!!

☺☺☺☺

27 settembre 2013. I could not have asked for a better place to stay while we were in San Gimignano. We, my 3 friends and I, were met at the bus stop and were given a warm welcome. We found the apartment to be clean, comfortable and in a very convenient location. There was a power outage one night because of a storm and Giulianna came that night to get our power back on. My only recommendation would be to have instructions for the washing machine written down in English since our Italian was very limited. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting San Gimignano and if I return I would stay there again. We all loved our visit and having this apartment to stay in helped make the trip so memorable.

Perfect retreat

☺☺☺☺☺

August 2013. The flat is right in the historical heart of San Gimignano, just in front of the main church. Mrs Giuliana is a great host, she welcomed us and helped with the car permits and parkings. Must note that you are not allowed to park the car near the flat other than for loading and unloading operations. Otherwise you have to use the parkings outside the village, a 10 minutes walk away with some uphill parts. From the flat you get to hear the church bells quite early in the morning and on market days you get some noise aswell. In my opinion is all part of the experience and being a light sleeper i managed to enjoy my stay anyway. The flat is big and traditionally furnished. The bathroom is a bit tight but perfectly usable and the kitchen has all the utilities you need to prepare your own meals.

Incroyablement beau et très animé

☺☺☺☺

18 agosto 2013. En famille avec deux jeunes enfants (2ans et 8ans), nous avons été très chaleureusement accueilli par la propriétaire qui nous a fait partagé l'enthousiasme pour son village. Le village en lui-même est extraordinaire et attire de très nombreux touristes qui investissent le centre-ville à partir de 9h30 jusqu'à 0h00 (l'appartement donne directement sur la place principale qui profite de la rumeur de la foule). On se sent vite privilégiés d'habiter San Gimignano alors que tous les autres sont de passage. Néanmoins, l'accès aux parkings du village est parfois difficile et onéreux. Il ne faut pas hésiter à louer le garage de la propriétaire s'il est disponible. La situation du village nous a permis de profiter de nos excursions à Sienne et Florence à moins d'1heure de voiture. La région est splendide ... Notre meilleur moment : boire un café le matin vers 8h30 sur la place pour profiter du lever du soleil sur les façades du village !

The owner is very friendly and hepful, and met us outside the wall and explained how to drive to the apartment to drop-off our luggage. If you have a car book the additional garage parking. There's no wifi, but it was nice to unplug while we were there. I would highly recommend this apartment to family and friends.

Luxury Apartment in a charming location!!!

☺☺☺☺☺

30 giugno 2013. We stayed in Giuliana's awesome apartment from 6/30/13 to 7/3/13. This apartment was cleaner than 5-star hotels we've been in. The kitchen, laundry, and bedrooms were extremely well stocked, and well-decorated. The host, Giuliana, was adorable, we wished she'd come talk to us everyday! The town itself is charming, but quite small so plan on taking some day trips to Siena or Volterra while you're in the area. (Giuliana helped us plan a great itinerary.) We hope to return and stay at La Torreta again. What an experience:-)

L'appartement est très propre et confortable même dans les grandes chaleurs.

☺☺☺☺☺

13 giugno 2013. San Gimignano! Nous y avons séjourné en juin 2013 et y garderons de vraiment bons souvenirs. L'appartement Il Borgo Antico est au coeur de la cité et offre une vu imprenable sur les tours. Nous avons même eu droit à des spectacles de chanteurs de rue à la fenêtre de notre chambre. Quel charme! L'appartement est très propre et confortable même dans les grandes chaleurs. Le stationnement sous terrain à proximité est également apprécié par temps chaud! La propriétaire, Mme Giuliana fut très disponible pour satisfaire nos besoins. Nous n'hésitons pas à vous recommander cette adresse. PS: Si vous avez l'occasion d'assister aux fêtes de la " Férie dell Messi" n'hésitez pas, c'est de beaux spectacles!

La Torretta, San Gimignano, it

☺☺☺☺☺

May 2013. Last year we were in appartment "Il Borgo antico" and spent wonderfull days in San Gimignano. That's why we turned back to the pearl of Tuscany - San Gimignano. Now we stayed in appartment "La Torretta" which is in the same building on the 3rd floor.
The house is in the center of San Gimignano just to the cathedral. Pizzerias, gelatteria (ice creams), restaurants, museums - all is near by. The appartment is very clean, convenient, the kitchen is well equipped. It has 2 bedrooms and is ideal for a family with children or for 2 couples. It is offered also garrage near Parking P3 (the nearest point to the house). Short-time access with car is allowed for unloading/loading of baggage.

San Gimignano is an ideal starting point for trips in Tuscany - not only for Siena and Florence, but also for a number of small picturesque towns - Monteriggioni, Volterra, Chianti valley, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano etc.

The owner - Mrs Giulianna Taddei is very very nice and helpfull! She met us near the garrage and showed us the way to the house, told us about the sightseeings and the events in San Gimignano, said us goodbye with nice presents and wine from San Gimignano.

Thank you again, Giulianna! We'll be back again!

Paradise!

☺☺☺☺☺

14 maggio 2013. A dona do apartamento, Dona Giuliana, é a simpatia em pessoa. Muito solícia, sempre disposta a nos ajudar e com muita paciência para nos entender, já que não falávamos italiano. A cidade de San Gimignano é bastante pequena mas bem localizada, no coração da Toscana. Muito bem cuidada, percebemos que todos os dias as ruas da cidade eram limpas. Além disso é uma cidade muito charmosa. Acordamos certa manhã com um flautista tocando "Nessum Dorma"...melhor impossível. E na sexta feira a noite as ruas da cidade foram enfeitada com velas. Também na quita feira pela manhã há uma feira de produtos locais bem na saida do apartamento. O apartamento em sí é muito limpo e está em ótimas condições, contendo tudo que precisávamos. As camas eram muito confortáveis e o chuveiro muito bom também.O apartemento é muito bem localizado, porém o estacionamento é um pouco mais longe, mas muito bem organizado e de fácil acesso. Quando voltarmos para Toscana certamente ficaremos lá de novo! We stayed in the apartment La Torretta in May 2013 for 8 days. It was a wonderful experience! The owner of the apartment, Mrs. Giuliana is kindness itself! Very solícia, always willing to help us and a lot of patience to understand us, since we did not speak Italian. The town of San Gimignano is fairly small but well located in the heart of Tuscany. Very well cared for, we noticed that every day the streets were clean. It is a very charming city. We woke up one morning with a piper playing "Nessum Dorma" ... could´t get better than that. And on Friday night, the streets of the city were adorned with candles. Also on thursday morning there was a fair of local products right in front of the apartment. The apartment itself is very clean and is in excellent condition, containing everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was very good too.The appartement is very well located, but the parking space is a little further away, but very well organized and easy to access. When we return to Tuscany we will definitely stay there again!

Expérience très positive

☺☺☺☺☺

1 aprile 2013. "Expérience très positive de l''appartement et de sa situation ainsi que du choix de la ville. Situé sur le côté d''une petite place très charmante, juste à côté d''une église dont le clocher sonne encore tous les débuts de matinée et toutes les fins de journée, détail que nous avons particulièrement apprécié (dépaysement total assuré). Nous avons été très bien accueilli par la propriétaire et bien renseigné . Nous y retournerons sans hésiter."

superbe apartment at a suberbe place

☺☺☺☺☺

July 2012. We stayed at the lovely old town of San Gimignano a year ago. Everything was perfect. We received a warm welcome by a nice old lady. The apartment is just next to the central square in the pedestrian area. In summer you can even enjoy opera, theatre and music performances from one window of the apartment. Inside everything worked fine including a free washing machine. Payment and organisation worked smoothly, strongly reommended!

Inesquecível Experiência Medieval

☺☺☺☺☺

14 luglio 2012. Adoramos nossa estadia nesse excelente apartamento, localizado bem no coração da cidade. O apartamento é bem equipado e oferece todo conforto para uma estadia adorável, inclusive a comodidade de ter dois banheiros. Fomos muito bem recebidos pela simpática senhora Giuliana, que nos mostrou a cidade e nos deu todas as informações necessárias. Encontramos tudo muito limpo e em ordem. É uma cidade encantadora, muito viva com suas ruas estreitas cheias de lojas charmosas, restaurantes, e a "melhor sorveteria do mundo". Estivemos em julho, quando estava muito quente mas o apartamento é bem ventilado dispensando a necessidade de ar condicionado. Foram dias agradáveis e inesquecíveis. Recomendo!!!

Un très bel endroit dans une cité préservée

☺☺☺☺

April 2012. L'emplacement de l'appartement est superbe et l'hôtesse absolument charmante. San Gimignano est une cité de rêve et grâce à la situation de l'appartement, on peut tout faire à pied.
Les moins : la literie (sommier et matelas) sont très vieux, sommiers en fer dans la chambre à 2 lits et matelas défoncé dans la chambre à grand lit. De plus il n'y a pas vraiment d'endroit pour se détendre en famille, la salle principale est encombrée de très gros meubles. Ce serait bien un peu plus d'espace avec fauteuils et canapés.

Great Base for a Tuscan holiday

☺☺☺☺☺

April 2012. We were welcomed by the owner and taken to apartment La Torretta. On leaving the owner gave us a memento of our holiday in San Gimignano. We stayed for a week at the beginning of April and had a very relaxing holiday wandering round the town and visiting other sites, Sienna, Florence and the roman remains at Voltera.
On market day we were woken to the experience of the market with its hustle and bustle of the traders as the market is in the street below. It was nice to look down at all the coming and goings in the town. The town has a different atmosphere in the evening when all the visitors have left, you have to experience the peace to believe it.
The best place to park is P1. Giubileo is the first car park you find travelling from Poggibonsi, it is situated at the first roundabout. It is the largest and cheapest (€1,50/hour and max per day is €6), From here you can walk up quite easily to the main entrance into San Gimignano. The owner recommends that you meet at a different car park. If so leave luggage in car as from that car park it is quite a walk up hill to the apartment.
The top floor apartment was very clean and suited all our needs. We loved it so much we have booked the first floor apartment for next year.

Amazing experience in san Gemignano

☺☺☺☺☺

1 agosto 2011. We stayed the first week of August in Giulianna's il Borgo appartment. it was amazing.. waking up and seeing the beautiful Tuscan landscape from the balcony.. having the most amazing food and ice cream and the whole experience of the tuscan life. Giulianna was so nice! She went out of her way to provide all we needed, even gave us a bottle of the local wine, which was excellent. I highly recommend any of her appartments and must stress that you should stay in San Gemignano no less than 1 week. We stayed for 5 nights and it was not enough!! Rosemary and family.

Authentic Tuscan Village Experience

☺☺☺☺☺

5 dicembre 2010. We are a family of 4, with 2 young children. We stayed at the apartment in December 2010 and if we could come back every year & stay here we would! We chose this apartment for the tuscan village atmosphere and proximity to surrounding towns. The apartment is right in the centre of the village, 3 flights of stairs up, and amazing village square and rural views. The stairs can be slippery when damp. The supermarket was a 15 minute walk down the hill but there were a variety of small boutique food shops for the basics if we couldn't be bothered walking all the way down the hill. Giuliana speaks more French than English, but was very eager to please, and was a charming hostess. Her son is available for driving directions by phone, which was handy for us as we'd never been to San Gimignano before. The apartment was spacious and clean, with 2 fabulous bedrooms with village square views and 2 bathrooms (handy for children). The kitchen was great, everything worked well and was clean. I would recommend cooking with the window open & extractor fan on to avoid the gas alarm going off! It was a pleasant 10 minute walk to the locked garage where our car was stored for the week, and we did easy day trips by car to Pisa & Siena, and bus to Firenze. But we could've spent the whole week in San Gimignano. We loved the town and the people. It was a nice time of year to come as the village had some tourists, but in the evenings we had the place to ourselves. We would love to come back and would stay here again without hesitation.

Alcuni giorni tra le torri

☺☺☺☺☺

26 ottobre 2010. Ho trascorso alcuni giorni in questo appartamento con i miei genitori. Lo abbiamo trovato molto accogliente, arioso e ben pulito. Da tre finestre si può godere di una vista eccezionale: le torri gemelle, la torre del comune, piazza Duomo e Piazza delle Erbe. E' un vero salotto! Per accedere all'appartamento è interessante il passaggio da una terrazza da cui si può godere la vista panoramica sulla campagna toscana. Le camere sono molto spaziose, la cucina è ben fornita di accessori. Il parcheggio pubblico o il garage si trovano a 10 minuti di distanza a piedi dall'appartamento, raggiungibili percorrendo la via principale e qualche vicolo caratteristico. Abbiamo avuto comunque la possibilità di accedere fino a Piazza delle Erbe con apposito permesso, fornitoci dalla proprietaria per il carico/scarico dei bagagli. La signora è stata molto cortese e disponibile nei nostri confronti.
