We were greeted by the friendliest couple of all of town! We instantly felt like we were visiting our own grandparents. Even though English is not the couples first language they are SO helpful. The husband brought around books and maps to our patio and showed us where to eat. He even wrote down the best things to try at... More

This place is fantastic for visiting San Gimignano and Toscany at all. The owners is an older Italian couple, and they are fantastic! Although they do not speak English very well, their communicational skills are awesome. During a couple of munites they will recommend you the best places to visit in Toscana, advice the best restaurants, give the cards for... More

Thank you very much lovely family: Primatte, Mauro, Samantha and Luca! Some of the most wonderful and caring owners. Very comfortable house with a few rooms and a kitchen. There is a terrace where you can eat during the day and evening. Convenient location - in a quiet location but at the same time, 15 minutes to the historical center.... More

the location is pretty good - right outside the old town, less than 10 mins walking, and with free parking (something not common for San Gimignano). the owners ensure you have everything you need and know where to go and what to do, giving you tips and discounts for local restaurants. you can enjoy the balcony/patio while having breakfast with...

We spent great time in Primetta house - charming and very comfortable house. Primetta and Mauro are very nice people, they were ready to help us with everything (with maps, turist informations, even with equipment to the beach). Their house is very close to city center. If you want to visit Tuscany, stay in San Gimignano (wonderful place with history)... More

My husband and I spent the month of June in Italy and loved every part of it, from Rome, to Sorrento, to Tuscany! However, our stay for 10 days in the apartment at Primetta House, just outside San Gimignano, was a special treat! The owners, Mauro and Primetta, were so welcoming, helpful and generous that we felt at home immediately.... More

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
