  • The apartment in Tuscany Countryside was idyllic. The apartment had a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom/siting area, as well as a patio outside. It was located about 2 km from San Gemignana which allowed for a daily walk through the countryside and provided a very quiet environment in the evening and at night. Damiano's parents were very gracious hosts, making sure we were comfortable. They prepared and served us breakfast every morning with their biggest concern being that we had enough. Although they speak very little to no English, they were very patient in explaining in slow, simple Italian and gestures - we appreciated the opportunity to learn a little bit more Italian during our stay. The house where we stayed has a number of additional rooms so quite appropriate for 1, 2 or an entire family. My fondest memories will always be "my Italian lessons, getting the recipe for lemonecella, and Bruno drawing a map in the ground to make sure we knew how to get to our next destination.

  • Great place with a view from the patio over the Tuscan hills. Very close to San Gimignano, right next to the Historic road. Loved the patio, where we dined alfresco. I don't speak Italian, but somehow managed to converse with Damiano's father who had plenty to tell! And Damiano was a fine friendly and spirited host when he welcomed us to the property.

  • I highly recommend staying at this apartment in the Tuscan countryside. It is located close to San Gimignano, among beautiful rolling hills. The apartment is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We were especially fond of our hosts and appreciated the delightful breakfast they prepared for us.

    February 2014
  • The place is ok, in winter was very cold inside, but the hosts are very nice people and they do everything to us fells at home !

    December 2013
  • We Arrived around 7pm, the host Damiano was not there, and we were greeted by an elderly man who spoke no english. He showed us the room which was NOT at all like in the pictures online.
    Then he stayed in our room for 1.5 hrs trying to speak in italian telling us about breakfast the next morning.
    We came in Oct, and it was cold THERE WAS NO HEAT IN THE APT, we asked for a controller for the heater and were given only to see the next morning we would be charged 10 euro for heat
    The man as we were trying to leave chased us and started banging on the car for money for heat (not speaking italian we had no idea what he was yelling about).
    The next night we stayed at a place cleaner, bigger and less hassle for 30 euro less!

    Overall the stay was HORRIBLE, airbnb should be embarrassed to host a place like this

    Response from Damiano:

    Usually never replies to comments, positive or negative , this is not the case.
    Constructive criticism , objective and TRUTHFUL are always well accepted, this is not the case .

    The apartment is EXACTLY as depicted in the photos, there is only one in the structure ; most important thing the photos visible on Airbnb tab were made by a professional photographer hired by Airbnb (comes from USA) , then FAITHFULLY REFLECT REALITY.

    You did not come in October , but rather the 1th NOVEMBER, day when the outside temperatures were :
    MAX 23 ° C and min 10 ° C, clear weather (data available on Internet) .
    I'm disconcerting to hear that the weather is cold by a Canadian people !

    In the apartment there are 2 different types of heating: independent heating with boiler and gas , and heating via heat pump (NEW) with remote controller.

    In the information AIRBNB is clearly written , and I always repeat formally writing that for the use of heating the PRICE IS EXTRA.
    So why does it have to be a problem paying for something extra if you used?

    CLEANING . I'm sure, everything WAS SPOTLESSLY CLEAN,
    because It does not clean someone else , but myself.
    Did you look into shower that all the accessories are NEW and mounted on the morning before your arriving....?!

    Arriving late at night and leave early in the morning , remain only a few hours to sleep , it means to truly know a place ? I think not ..

    SUMMARY:
    for 70 € , price is among the lowest of all the accommodation facilities outside the historic center , apartment of 45 square meters, with fully equipped kitchen , with free parking , with outdoor terrace of 70 square (email hidden) from the center of San Gimignano, not enough? !
     
    Being surrounded by SIMILAR STRUCTURES with prices almost double compared to yours and to hear that you are expensive , it's ridiculous, offensive and FALSE.

    The world is beautiful because we are all different , so thank you for your comment , however , will serve to improve the service .

  • Hi Damiano and everyone.
    first of all i have to say that St.Gimignano (Toscany) is a breathtaking place. Everyone should see:) But the biggest handicap is transpostation so you must have a vehicle (car, motorbike...) to gain time and to see most places efficiently.
    second actually Damiano's place is very beautiful even a bit hard to get there if you do not have a car. And as i also mentined to Damiano, it should be more clean. I do not men so dirty but it is like noone lived there for a long time dirty. But other than that the place is a perfect countyside home, with view, garden and of course Signor Bruna. Signor Bruna is father of Damioano and he is adorable (even though he does not speak even a word of English) We loved him, i hope he liked us too :) By the way we do not speak Italian either but in someway we managed to communicate each other :) my dictionaries helped a lot. He prepared us a great breakfast and so nice and helpful..)
    Damiano pls say hi to him from 2 girls from Istanbul :)
    We higly recommend the place if you do not focus on hygiene (but i have to say bathroom was perfectly clean and hygienic) but the vacation. Pls see as much places in Toscany. i belive you will love it.

  • At first the place was hard to find without a GPS but the locals are friendly and kindly pointed the way. Damiano's parents received us well and made us feel very welcome. They were very friendly and talkative although they only speak Italian, giving us tips on the local area and a bit of history. Daily breakfast was included with delicious home cooked cakes and pies! The room was spacious with a large kitchen, bathroom and a nice outside patio, very Tuscan feel. Only a 5 minute drive from San Gimignano which is a cute medieval town with good local restaurants and wineries.
    Very nice experience and would definitely recommend it.

  • Damiano's place was good, but it is his father, Bruno, that makes the differece. He received us on our arrival day and indicated the path to get to San Gimignano (25 minute walk, beautiful scenery) as well as the many places we had to visit and a little history of the town. He also showd us some vineyards around his place and his olive trees. Breakfast was amazing, he brought fresh baked tarts made by his wife and fresh brewed coffee. I would definetly recommend this place.

  • Thank you for a lovely stay in Tuscany!
    This B&B was adorable, it was easy to find, there was plenty of space with nice amenities. Bruno served a delicious, plentiful breakfast and he was so helpful and fun to chat with, despite our language barrier. He was patient and let us borrow a map and offered good advice on touring San Gimignano and where to eat, he was a very sweet man. It was also super close to S.G. for touring and we HIGHLY recommend staying there.

    Helpful tips we learned:
    Take a train to the Poggibonsi stop, and then the local bus toward San Gimignano and you can get off at the stop for Hotel Sovestro or the following stop by Ristorante Nisio (actually closer).
    The bus runs far less often on Sundays so be sure to plan ahead!

  • We had no difficulty finding the apartment and we were greeted by Damiano's parents warmly. Damiano was home over our first weekend and he was a great source of things to do and see. We especially enjoyed his restaurant recommendations which were really good! Bruno, Damiano's father, is ever present to give suggestions and to talk with you, regardless of the language barrier! The location of the place is excellent for taking day trips to other towns and it is only a back road walk of about 25 minutes into San Gimignano.
