six wonderful nights in San Gimignano
We spent a wonderful six nights in San Gimignano. The apartment was perfect. Leandro and his family were great hosts. We would definitely recommend this apartment. It is well located between the towns of San Gimignano and Certaldo, and close enough to Siena to spend a few hours at the Piazza del Campo and the magnificient church. We look forward to another opportunity to stay here.
many thanks Leandro. mary and walter
Wished we could've stayed longer!
We absolutely loved this property! The pictures owner Leandro posted are an accurate portrayal of the charming and picturesque location, I wish pictures could show how peaceful the property really is. Very quiet, even when there was a family with 3 children in the rental below. We rented the upstairs unit with friends, it was just the right size for 2 couples. Spacious, well-stocked kitchen; bathrooms updated and clean; bedrooms also fine. We were there in the early Spring, so we could take advantage of all the outdoor spaces that Leandro provided- my favorite was the deck overlooking the pond full of turtles. We also enjoyed walking up the hill to pet and feed the 3 donkeys and just admire the beautiful Tuscan countryside. It was too cold to swim in the lovely pool, next time! The location, just outside of the small town of Ulignano was great- quiet and peaceful but still easy to make day trips to San Gimingnano, Volterra and Certaldo Alto. Nearby Poggibonsi had a large modern supermarket.
We also thought the owner Leandro went above and beyond to be helpful: the friends we were traveling with both got sick while we were there, and Leandro made a doctor appointment for them!
We wished we could've stayed longer, and hope to return for a longer stay in 2021.
Thank you very much for your visit, we like to host kind and courteous people like you.
We wait you on 2021, thanks again Leandro.
Holiday in Tuscany
We stayed 3 weeks in the Timo apartment and loved every minute of it. It was very clean, well maintained and very well equipped. Everything you needed was available. The other thing I was impressed with was the binder telling you how to operate the washing machine, the tv, etc. The pool and deck area were wonderful and the pool was kept spotless.
Leandro and his father were wonderful to deal with, any question was dealt with promptly. The location is good for sightseeing and there were some good restaurants and a great winery down the road. I will definitely stay here again and I'd recommend this apartment for anyone thinking of coming to Tuscany
Grazie molto per la vostra gentilezza per come avete tenuto l'appartamento e per la splendida recensione, spero di vedervi ancora. Grazie infinitamente da Leandro e Doriano
We were in the Timo apartment for 8 days. It was a really good apartment with reasonable price. We came a bit later than we supposed to come, but it wasn't a problem even that Leandro had a work day ahead of him next morning. We have two children who loved the pool that wasn't too big but still good for the reason that is was meant to be. We all spent a lot of time in and by the pool. The owners were really nice and we had long conversations with especially Doriano who worked there in the mornings. I have been studying the italian language I had a great opportunity to learn more and use it with him. He is also very nice person and kind. He also brought some Panzanella one morning. The property situates in the place nearby many interesting cities and we visited Siena, Firenze, San Gimignano etc. Thanks for everything!
Thank you very much for your cordiality and sympathy, I hope to meet you again.
Paradise in Tuscany
We loved our 6 night stay at the converted barn. The apt was spacious, clean, and very welcoming. The grounds had lots of open space, a swimming pool, fishing lake, gated entrance, plus three hungry donkeys and a loving cat.
It was centrally located and we took day trips to Firenze, Siena, San G, Volterra, and Chianti. Grocery shopping was nearby in Poggibonsi, where prices were very reasonable.
The owner was very nice and even met us the first day on the road when we got lost driving to the apt. (It was our fault we got lost not his!). We saw Leandro several times during our stay, and also his father and father-inlaw....they were all putting finishing touches on the beautiful new pool.
The lower unit was lovely as well, and could be rented together for a great family retreat. We hope to return one day and stay here again.
Gorgeous Private Estate in the Country
Nestled outside a quaint village in the heart of Tuscany, this peaceful property offers a slice of heaven. From the moment my wife and I entered the gate we appreciated the beauty and comfort of this special place. The house itself is built of stone. It has large wooden arched windows that swing open for a wonderful view of the opposing hillside where a new vineyard has been planted. The view of lush greenery is enchanting. The property has a private lake that is loaded with fish and a half dozen turtles that were about a foot in diameter. The fish gathered in throngs to get the bread crumbs we threw in the lake from the overlooking deck. The turtles were hard pressed to beat the fish to the bread, try as they might. We fed carrots to Lola, Natalie, and Stella—the three resident donkeys. They seemed good natured and healthy. We truly enjoyed our discussions with the Owner, Leandros. The house has two two-bedroom apartments, that are tastefully decorated. We had everything we needed to cook meals and live in comfort for the 10 days we stayed there. We loved the arched stone walls inside and the stone floors. There was a large wooden table to spread out books, breakfast, and brochures on. Our biggest regret was having all this room to spread out, but no children and grandchildren with us to enjoy it as well. Our goal is to bring our extended family to this lovely home and take over the whole house. We thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. It’s easy to fall in love with the beauty and serenity of this location. Thank you, Leandros, for sharing your home with us. We’ll be back.
It 'a real pleasure to host people like you, see you soon, thank you very mutch Leandro.
