What people say about us:
Highly enjoyable stay, modern property, amazing view, super close, and delicious breakfast. There was so much about this place that was amazing. EXCELLENT accommodations! We checked in after hours (we arrived very late), to a modern, updated, and secure place! Plenty of space for 3 adults, super close to town center (about 5 min walking), amazing views, well maintained property with pleasing decorations and spectacular breakfasts! (if you want you can request breakfast for an extra fee) Benedetta was super sweet and generous, gave us good recommendations for the town and was always available to us. I cannot recommend this place enough!
The location of the apartment is perfect. Just outside the town walls, 4 min walk, with free parking on the streets. Benedetta helped us a lot, gave good advices for exploring towns. The place is very clean and stylish. I would definitely recommend it.
We loved staying at B&B La Cornice! It is a beautiful and comfortable place, everything is spotless and breakfast excellent . Benedetta is a super friendly host, very kind and helpful. Location is fantastic with a wonderful view and in walking distance to town.
This house completely covers all your day to day needs. Clean, great furniture, appliances, beautifully decorated. The scenery is just beautiful, great restaurants, stores within walking distance. Benedetta is a great owner, she immediately responded to any question or needs we may have had. We felt like if we were at our own home. And she also gave us advice on where to go. If any one wants to have a great stay in Tuscany, this house is perfect. Personally I want to thank Benedetta for making our stay in Borgo Antico so great.
How often can you stay in a medieval village?? What a wonderful stay we had in San Gimignano. Spent a week and used as a base to visit Florence, Siena and several other hill towns. The apartment Il Borgo Antico was very clean and comfortable and well furnished. A wonderful view from the windows. Benedetta was a perfect host! I would highly recommend everything about it.
My friend and I recently spent 6 days and 5 nights at Borgo Antico and we had a terrific experience. Benedetta was the best hostess and the apartment was impeccable and as described. She was gracious and informative and made us feel welcome in San Gimignano. The location of the apartment could not have been better - just across from the Duomo at the edge of one of the popular squares of the town. Thank you Benedetta for making our visit so enjoyable! I highly recommend Borgo Antico to anyone!
The apartment La Torretta is located in the center of historic San Gimignano. From the windows you can people-watch (the weekly market is set up just in front of the building), listen to the church bells, or walk just a few steps to La Rocca to see the sunrise or sunset. The city is very safe (and quite lovely) at night, so walking back after a late dinner is not a problem. A private parking space is available just outside the city walls (extra fee) which makes exploring the surrounding area by car very easy. The apartment manager speaks excellent English, and responds quickly to any questions or requests. There are several specialty food markets within the city walls, and a full supermarket just steps outside the gate. The kitchen is well equipped and very functional. There is access to a shared terrace which provides nice views of the surrounding countryside. If you are looking for the authentic experience of staying in a medieval city, this is an excellent choice. We will definitely be back! (Be warned, tis authenticity also means climbing several flights of stairs and no air conditioning, neither of which were a problem for us.)
The apartment La Torretta was charming with original designs and furnishings and had everything we needed. Benedetta was very helpful in getting us settled in the apartment. Benedetta waited for us outside the scheduled arrival time and helped us navigate San Gimignano to the apartment. She answered every inquiry we had. The apartment was beautiful and perfectly situated in the best town in Tuscany. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
