“An oasis of tranquillity”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

To find such a beautiful & peaceful place to stay within the walls of San Gimignano was unbelievable. This place is a little oasis of tranquillity and calmness even though it is less than 200m from the ever increasing crowds in the centre of the town. You really are completely cut off from the hustle and bustle just around the corner. The apartment is fantastic but the real bonus is the garden which is still lovingly tended by Mario and a real sun trap. You really wouldn't believe that this could exist inside the walls of this town. Mario & Christina were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Thank you

The tortoise was christened 'George' for the week. Don't know why, just seems a good name for a tortoise. He is extremely friendly and chases you around the garden. Be warned though, he is surprisingly speedy and has a habit of biting your toes in the mornings when he is hungry. Sad to leave him and the wonderful apartment after a lovely week

“Beautiful Garden Apartment - Fun Tortoise - Fabulous Location”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent a week in this lovely garden apartment inside the city walls in San Gimignano - Tuscany. All the flower pots were blooming it was just lovely and there is a friendly old tortoise who lives in the garden who loves apples and nibbling on toes. San Gimignano can get very busy during the summer season but this apartment located just a few minutes from the main square is like an oasis - quiet and peaceful. The building is very old and authentic and is stocked with everything needed for a long stay. Hosts Mario and Donella as well as Cristina and Marco were on hand any time help was needed.

“Excellent is an over-used word - but not in this instance.”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was a delightful apartment. It is well-equipped, well though out and sufficient for all your needs. The garden ( and tortoise) make it special too.
The hosts are welcoming and informative. Thanks so much for meeting us in Poggibonsi and then showing us where the supermarket was, telling us about the local Thursday market and giving us suggestions for restaurants. We had a lovely week exploring the streets and alleys of the village - especially in the early morning when it was cool!

“Beautiful appartment”
Reviewed May 14, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband and I stayed almost two weeks in this apartment and loved every day of it. It is in a great location in town. Relax in the beautiful back yard or walk to the main piazza in a couple minutes. Mario and his family are wonderful and helpful people. Stay here!

“Tranquility in the heart of San Gimignano”
Reviewed March 2, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

We have stayed in many properties advertised on Trip Advisor, but none as beautiful as this delightful house. The owner, Mario, met us on arrival, with his daughter Christina, who has excellent English. They could not have been more helpful. The house is clearly Mario's pride and joy and so it should be. The house is quirky, with its arches and the additional cool underground rooms. Mario has thoughtfully added extras such as wine, cakes, maps and a lovely set of books about Tuscan art. The well finished bathroom came with toiletries and the kitchen is well equipped. The garden is gorgeous - a riot of colour and a lovely place to sit out, with both sun traps and shade. Sadly we were visiting too early in the year to meet the resident tortoise. Highly recommended.
