Romantic, bright, intimate and comfortable ATTICO DUOMO is located in the historic heart of San Gimignano (Piazza Duomo) overlooking the Collegiata church, the ancient Town Hall and the most beautiful towers of the town. It's located in the XII century medieval Useppi-Chigi Palace, alongside the Leggieri Theatre. In the 'Attico Duomo' you can find tranquillity and privacy.
From every window a different panorama can be admired, with picturesque patches of the Sienese and Florentine countryside cultivated with vines and sunflowers. Of Etruscan origin, it is a real artistic gem. The historic centre is a site which is protected by UNESCO and presents intact the Tuscan 12th and 13th centuries, packed with beautiful palaces, with important sculptures and frescoes. It is almost unreal: we know that it is all authentic, even if it appears to be like a perfect reconstruction.
Suberb location in the centre of San Gimignano with marvellous views from the sitting room overlooking Piazza Duomo. The apartment was well appointed and extremely clean, it felt more like a home than a holiday let with many pictures and decorative items adorning the walls. The apartment has been sympathetically and cleverly modernised maintaining a typical Tuscan feel, all furnishings are of a good quality and extremely tasteful.
The location is ideally situated as a base to explore Siena, Florence, Voltera, Lucca, Pisa and many other villages within the surrounding beautiful countryside.
A car is not really necassary as the public transport is excellent, bus timetables are available from the very helpful Tourist Information Office which is a two minute walk across the Piazza from the apartment.
All communication with the owner via email was superb with helpful and very prompt response.
We will definately be returning to stay in this beautiful apartment.
Location is simply extraordinary, views of Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral square) from living room are unparalleled (and there are other interesting views too). Apartment is comfortable, spacious, bright and well equipped, and decoration/furniture keep the charm of the fabulous setting. Communication with owners and person receiving us was impeccable (and very friendly). The apartment comes with a parking spot about 200-300 meters away, which is very secure. This is a big plus (tip, if you do not pack light leave stuff you won't use in the car, the "attico" is not for 29-inch luggage!). Overall, a wonderful place at a very reasonable price; we'll be back!!!!
Attico Duomo proved to be everything that was promised in the advertisements for the apartment. It was in a fantastic location in the heart of San Gimignano across from the Duomo. The two bedroom apartment was very comfortable with furnishings that enhanced the Tuscan experience and history. It was exceptionally clean with a fully equipped kitchen, two modern bathrooms, and laundry facilities. The Wi-Fi and parking proved to be an added value option that contributed to our overall satisfaction and comfort. Since we cooked a number of our meals at the apartment, we were pleased that it was fully equipped with kitchen utensils, dishware, and cutlery. Overall, this was a great experience in a unique apartment rich with history and local culture.
My wife and I stayed here for a week. The apartment is terrific. It is right at the center of the small town, with a view of the Piazza Duomo out the sitting room window. Definitely worth the climb of about 60 steps. The building dates from the 1300s, and has a great deal of character. Good kitchen facilities (but be warned that there are virtually no food items, not even pepper; we had to buy olive oil and balsamic vinegar for our salads, and the refrigerator is only half size). Very spacious dining area. Master bedroom was fine, as was main bathroom. Having a washer was a plus, though we had to buy laundry soap and our first attempt at washing was unsuccessful because we turned the dial to the wrong setting -- turn it to B, not to H. Unfortunately we were not able to get an internet connection even though the VRBO posting said there was wireless. After several email messages the owner finally came to the apartment and agreed there was a problem, which we hope got fixed. All in all, we had a great time here and would definitely recommend the apartment to others who want to spend time in San Gimignano. And we rave about the restaurant Cum Quibus, where we ate dinner 3 times during the week (definitely reserve, which you can do via email).
I have just booked the beautiful Attico Duomo for the 3rd consecutive year.
This lovely apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos. Everytime I go there it is immaculately clean and perfectly maintained. The apartment is fully loaded with everything you could possibly want or need. You can prepare meals in the kitchen or bring in enough food for a feast, and everything you need is on hand.
We love to shop at the Pam superstore in nearby Poggibonsi and the Thursday morning San Gimignano market, and prepare some meals at home, but also love to eat out at the fabulous restaurants in San Gimignano.
Fernanda and Patrizia, the two ladies who take care of the apartment are absolutely delightful and endlessly helpful. The owner, Silvana is just wonderful, and over the course of my vacations spent there has become a lifetime friend.
The apartment comes with parking space, making it ideal for anyone who likes to drive around and explore Tuscany. We also love to drive down the hill to Certaldo and take the train in to Florence or anywhere we don't feel like driving to that day.
San Gimignano is the perfect town to base a vacation from and Attico Domo is just the loveliest, most wonderful place to stay.
Attico Duomo has become our home away from home, and we now plan our Italian vacations around the availability of the apartment.
I absolutely recommend staying here, your experience will be wonderful!
