Simply Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this apartment was outstanding based on its location, quality, and Giuliana. Centrally located and in the plaza next to the Duomo, you are walking distance to everything that this charming town has to offer. Furthermore, the town is yours in the morning and evening after the tourist hordes arrive and depart. For quality, this apartment was very clean, organized and offered great views of the piazza and the countryside. Finally, Giuliana was very gracious and sweet to myself and my family. . .we felt like we were part of the town and their culture. She was extremely nice and responsive to us and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting her. Thank you Giuliana for helping us have the greatest vacation we could have had. We love San Gimignano, Tuscany and Italy. Thanks for being so patient to a couple of Americans who literally spoke 2 words of Italian. If you want an outstanding lodging experience in San Gimignano, you need to stay at this apartment.

We Loved San Gimignano

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in this apartment, we spent six weeks traveling all over Italy and San Gimignano was one of our favourite's. Its location was great for traveling on day trips to the larger centres around the area. We stayed for a week and would have been happy to stay for two, as the town has just the right balance of somewhere to chill out, but with all the services and things to see and do. The apartment is very clean and spacious and the owner was lovely and very helpful. I would highly recommend this apartment. Thankyou Hadyn and family Australia

It is a wonderful apartment - very spacious. We are a family of four and enjoyed having two bathrooms. Fantastic location in the centre of town. The owner is very friendly and hepful, and met us outside the wall and explained how to drive to the apartment to drop-off our luggage. If you have a car book the additional garage parking. There's no wifi, but it was nice to unplug while we were there. I would highly recommend this apartment to family and friends.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Nós ficamos no apartamento LA TORRETTA em maio de 2013 por 8 dias. Foi uma experiência maravilhosa!
A dona do apartamento, Dona Giuliana, é a simpatia em pessoa.
Muito solícia, sempre disposta a nos ajudar e com muita paciência para nos entender, já que não falávamos italiano.
A cidade de San Gimignano é bastante pequena mas bem localizada, no coração da Toscana. Muito bem cuidada, percebemos que todos os dias as ruas da cidade eram limpas.
Além disso é uma cidade muito charmosa. Acordamos certa manhã com um flautista tocando "Nessum Dorma"...melhor impossível. E na sexta feira a noite as ruas da cidade foram enfeitada com velas. Também na quita feira pela manhã há uma feira de produtos locais bem na saida do apartamento.
O apartamento em sí é muito limpo e está em ótimas condições, contendo tudo que precisávamos. As camas eram muito confortáveis e o chuveiro muito bom também.O apartemento é muito bem localizado, porém o estacionamento é um pouco mais longe, mas muito bem organizado e de fácil acesso.
Quando voltarmos para Toscana certamente ficaremos lá de novo!

We stayed in the apartment La Torretta in May 2013 for 8 days. It was a wonderful experience!
The owner of the apartment, Mrs. Giuliana is kindness itself!
Very solícia, always willing to help us and a lot of patience to understand us, since we did not speak Italian.
The town of San Gimignano is fairly small but well located in the heart of Tuscany. Very well cared for, we noticed that every day the streets were clean.
It is a very charming city. We woke up one morning with a piper playing "Nessum Dorma" ... could´t get better than that. And on Friday night, the streets of the city were adorned with candles. Also on thursday morning there was a fair of local products right in front of the apartment.
The apartment itself is very clean and is in excellent condition, containing everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was very good too.The appartement is very well located, but the parking space is a little further away, but very well organized and easy to access.
When we return to Tuscany we will definitely stay there again!

Luxury Apartment in a charming location!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Giuliana's awesome apartment from 6/30/13 to 7/3/13. This apartment was cleaner than 5-star hotels we've been in. The kitchen, laundry, and bedrooms were extremely well stocked, and well-decorated. The host, Giuliana, was adorable, we wished she'd come talk to us everyday! The town itself is charming, but quite small so plan on taking some day trips to Siena or Volterra while you're in the area. (Giuliana helped us plan a great itinerary.) We hope to return and stay at La Torreta again. What an experience:-)

Authentic Tuscan Village Experience

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 4, with 2 young children. We stayed at the apartment in December 2010 and if we could come back every year & stay here we would! We chose this apartment for the tuscan village atmosphere and proximity to surrounding towns.

The apartment is right in the centre of the village, 3 flights of stairs up, and amazing village square and rural views. The stairs can be slippery when damp. The supermarket was a 15 minute walk down the hill but there were a variety of small boutique food shops for the basics if we couldn't be bothered walking all the way down the hill.

Giuliana speaks more French than English, but was very eager to please, and was a charming hostess. Her son is available for driving directions by phone, which was handy for us as we'd never been to San Gimignano before.

The apartment was spacious and clean, with 2 fabulous bedrooms with village square views and 2 bathrooms (handy for children). The kitchen was great, everything worked well and was clean. I would recommend cooking with the window open & extractor fan on to avoid the gas alarm going off!

It was a pleasant 10 minute walk to the locked garage where our car was stored for the week, and we did easy day trips by car to Pisa & Siena, and bus to Firenze. But we could've spent the whole week in San Gimignano.

We loved the town and the people. It was a nice time of year to come as the village had some tourists, but in the evenings we had the place to ourselves. We would love to come back and would stay here again without hesitation.
