FARMHOUSE PODERE CUNINA OF SILVANA FREDDI purchased this apartment in 2000

Why FARMHOUSE PODERE CUNINA OF SILVANA FREDDI chose Val d'Elsa - Siena

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

The city is an UNESCO world heritage site and rightly so, since when you walk the streets it seems hard to believe that the Medieval era is no longer alive. The tall towers, the monumental palazzos, the narrow streets and small bottegas work together to create an unforgettable souvenir of memories.From a vacation accommodation based in or around San Gimignano there are many directions you can travel in Tuscany that will enrich your itinerary with either beauty, history or natural phenomenons. Some of which are reachable by public transport - easy one stop rides, which you can do on your own, while others require a car if you want to make it there and back again in a day.

Here is our list of place to consider when on vacation in Tuscany and based in (or close to San Gimignano).The Three Big Stops

These three options practically need no introduction - Pisa, Siena and Florence are pillars of beauty and historical importance in Tuscany. We include them only because it would be remiss to skip over them, however our intent with this article is to give you some options that are “outside of the box”.

Pisa Driving Time: 1 hour 30 min

This is furtherest away from the small town however, not so far that it is impossible in a day trip, especially since Pisa (once you have bought your tickets in advance online) can easily be visited and appreciated in less than a day. The Leaning Tower needs no introduction, however the other monuments in the Square of Miracles are less famous..

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing apartment. From the location - perfect; to the amenities - everything you might need ; to the hosts and check in - complete. Location was unbelievable across from the duomo on the main piazza looking down from the 3 rd floor . Listening to the church bells was magical. Most amazing was the use of the free parking area behind Fernanda's house.

We truly enjoyed San G and staying this wonderful town and apartment

If you are staying in San G somewhere besides this apartment you are probably in the wrong place and somewhere not nearly as wonderful.

We will return next year and would stay no where else

Thank you Silvana

CHARMING TOWER APARTMENT IN BEST LOCATION IN BEST TUSCAN HILL TOWN

  • 5 of 5

Silvania did a fantastic job preparing us for our visit and was a gracious hostess throughout. We were met by the caretakers who were charming and helpful. It is a spacious apartment with an amazing view of the main square. It has every thing you could need. We attended the cooking class and met the entire beautiful family. I could not have imagined a better experience. Yes, there are stairs, but how else are you going to access a Medieval tower?

A week in San gimignano

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect. Great location, furnishing where amazing and the help and assistance from the owner was awesome. She went out of her way to help with guidance as we didn't know the area.

I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Only one point to anyone who has problems with stairs. It is on the third floor and there are plenty so you have to be prepared. It was hard work for my Mother who we took with us.

Apartment in San Gimognano

We truly enjoyed our stay in San Gimignano. The location of this apartment is excellent, it overlooks the plaza and the view of the countryside is spectacular. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Love the feel of staying in an old medieval town. Sylvana and her family were extremely kind and helpful. The parking was very convenient. We highly recommended this apartment. Our time in Tuscany was amazing !

Beautiful Apartment in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely apartment in the center of San Gimignano. The views of the Piazza Duomo and the surrounding towers were absolutely fantastic and provided marvelous photo points. The apartment is very large, comfortable and spotless. It was very well decorated and although it has been completely modernized the ancient exposed brick has the feel and warmth of this medieval village. Silvana was extremely helpful with touring suggestions and her representative, Fernanda, was very welcoming. I love this place and will miss it when I return home. The parking spot is an unbelievable added convenience and I was able to tour much of Tuscany and make incredible memories. I highly recommend this charming apartment and hope to return one day.
