Came across Primetta House by coincidence, and I really don't regret they I choose this lovely couple's home. Only five mins walk from the city itself. They greeted us as if we were family with a lovely bottle of wine. The place is lovely, clean ,surrounded with breathtaking views and I must admit that without Mauro's advise we wouldn't discovered... More

Mauro and Primetta are everything one can imagine Tuscan hospitality to be. Right from the front gate both came outside and greeted us not like anonymous summer guests but like relatives and their attitude remained the same throughout our stay. They offered us huge amounts of travel literature and recommendations both for places to visit and for places to eat,... More

We stumbled across this place by accident and are very glad we found it. It is just outside San Gimignano about 5-10 minutes down the hill past the bike rental place.The views alone on the way are well worth the walk. Primetta, the owner was a lovely nonna who chatted and made us feel at home. She gave us great... More

We (German couple) stayed at Primetta house for 2 nights in San Gimignano and we can fully recommend it to everyone! It is the perfect place to be! The room was very nice, very clean and had everything we needed! Lots of thanks to Primetta and Mauro for all their invaluable insider tipps on where to get the best pizza... More

This lovely Italian couple take hospitality to a new high. It is like visiting family. Nothing is too much trouble and you are plied with wine, cookies and passionate embraces! They just want you to be happy! Our little cottage was very quaint - enough cups and saucers to cater for fifty people! Close to everything with a pretty garden... More

During our trip I tried to stay in interesting buildings, like castles, forts and inside town walls. I was advised by a friend to stay with Mauro and Primetta whilst in San Gimignano and could not have chosen better. They really welcomed us and it felt like visiting family. My kids thought they were absolutely adorable. Although they cannot speak... More

You will not find more genuine people then Mauro and his wonderful wife Primetta. They don't speak very much English but they are still able to communicate everything necessary for your stay in Tuscany. Best places to see, eat, market day (so fun!) and even best short cuts on the roads. They are so loving and kind-we just couldn't get... More

I recently visited Italy with my mother and we received a warm welcome at Primetta House. Mauro and Primetta were great hosts and provided us with ample information on the local and surrounding area. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the welcoming drink and breakfasts were very good also. This place was the highlight of our 10 days in... More

I strongly recommend both San Gemignano as a great place to explore Toscany and Primetta House. First of all, Mauricio and his wife are very nice, open and hospitable people. Our rooms were nice and comfortable, they were cleaned everyday. The city center is very close - about 2 min walking distance which made us feel the spirit of the... More
