San Gimignano Apartment Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom with Tuscan countryside view
The small village is surrounded by a private park as large as one hectare, immersed in olive groves, fruit trees and local plants. A swimming pool with salt water (12 x 6m) is located at the top of a hill in a most exclusive and intimate spot with 1st breath-taking view over the Tuscan hills in front of the ancient towers of San Gimignano. The “Chiesetta di San Pietro” was built in the 10th century along the Frankish Route, the ancient road used by so many pilgrims on their way from Canterbury to Rome before embarking to Jerusalem. Just a few steps away from San Gimignano and from the top of a small hill, you will find yourself completely overwhelmed by the surrounding Tuscan landscape and overlooking the valley where the Chiesetta was built more than 10 centuries ago. Bellavista, Il Portico and La Capanna will be the houses for your Tuscan holidays: The most beautiful places of this region can be reached from this quiet little village in very short time . Used as a rest stop along the pilgrim roads in the Middle Age, the Chiesetta (old church) with the adjacent farmhouse and barn were given by Count Ugo, the son of Uguccione, to the monastery of Santa Maria a Morrona on 6th of May 1109.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a lovely week in Tuscany staying at Santo Pietro.
The apartments at Santo Pietro are beautifully laid out and well equipped (including beach towels for the pool!)
The views from the property are spectacular - in all directions. Set up in the hills it is very peacefull with the exception of the crickets - but they just add ambience!
Situated close to San Gimingano and Certaldo you are perfectly situated for touring Tuscany, with easy access to Siena, Florence, the Chianti Route etc etc...
I am still recovering from the breath taking scenery and would love to go back one day and explore some more.
