Pierre and Margaret, and Pierre's sister Silvia, spent a delightful nine days in Damiano's apartment near San Gimignano in Tuscany.
We were welcomed by Damiano's parents, who settled us in and were happy to learn that Silvia speaks fluent Italian. We didn't meet Damiano as we left one day earlier than planned, when we realized we'd miss
Silvia's husband's birthday, if we stayed.
Sorry Damiano, that we didn't meet you.
Bruno, Damiano's Dad, was so sweet...he brought us passion flowers that he'd pruned, plums from his trees, and a boxful of baby ducks to cuddle! And the daily cakes from Damiano's Mum, Mariastella, were a real treat!!
The apartment is about 15 minutes hike from San Gimignano...the first time we saw the village appearing before us, perched on it's hilltop, it's towers reaching into the sky we felt a bit like pilgrims! It's an amazing place. We were so lucky to have arrived just before the four day "Mediaeval Festival" (a surprise to us).
What an atmosphere! All those people in costumes of the Medici era, knights and ladies, churchmen, flag bearers, drummers and trumpeters, artisans of the ancient crafts, even bands of lepers and beggars! The shows, displays , dances, flag throwing, parades and the horse race and jousting were so entertaining, We wandered about taking hundreds of photos on these days , feeling like we'd stepped back in time. So well done, and for free!!
Love this place!!
Damiano's place is well situated for visiting so many other ancient and mediaeval towns, like Poggibonsi, Certaldo, Volterra, Valdelsa... and the cities of Siena and Florence.
Such a beautiful part of the world. The hillsides patchworked with vineyards, and olive groves, grainfields, and wildflowers, and on every hilltop, a castle, a church, or a gorgeous Tuscan estate.
Lovely views from Damiano's place, and a private courtyard for breakfast and meals.
Everything was pretty and clean, and Mariastella brought us all the breakfast supplies we needed, daily.
Thanks for having us!!
Damiano was very helpful about places to visit in the area. The apartment was very spacious.
Siamo state in tre e per una sola notte. Casetta molto carina e ottima come base per visitare San Gimignano e dintorni. Danilo è stato estremamente preciso e accogliente.
It was the first time to reserve via Airbnb and it was a very good choice:) Damiano's accomodation is very charming, located in a beautiful surrounding. The apartment is well equipped, it perfectly met our expectations. We are very grateful for Damiano and his family to make our honeymoon much more sweet :) Thanks for the fantastic breakfasts and the amazing dinner prepared last evening for our special request. We wish you all the best! We will never forget you and viva VIN SANTO and Hungarian PALINKA :) Veronika & Milan from Hungary, Kőszeg
The residence was as close as the announce says it would be from San Gimignano.
Cozy, wide apartment with all faclities.
Damiano was not at home to recieve us but his parents were.
The real problem about this room/apartment was internet: no chance in two days to get it from inside...you have to go outside at the balcony/terrace, an by night there´s one only reflector with a stupid dimer that turns the light off every 20 seconds, you need to move as a clown every 20 sec in order to see and work with your devices: a real problem easy to be solved by the owners, but becomes a nightmare for us to use wi fi in order to prepare things for the next day.
Dear customer, you do not think that outdoor lighting is the spotlight that serves to illuminate the stairs at night and lights up only for 20 seconds to the passage of people ?! You're joking, right ?!
The exterior lighting of the terrace (beautiful, plentiful and made in Italy) consists of 3 applique wall with arms that are located on either side of the entrance and in the corner near the kitchen which turn on and turn off in your apartment. (see photos to believe).
I put lots of instructions inside the room but put instructions to press the light button it seems pretty ridiculous. Thanks.
Hôte invisible, qui n'a pas répondu au téléphone quand nous sommes arrivées. Ce sont ses parents qui nous ont gentillement accueillies.
L'appartement est pas mal mais pas très propre (frigo et tapis sales).
Cher client, pour les réservations effectuées sur Airbnb, l'utilisation de la plate-forme web de chat pour envoyer des messages en cas de temps et / ou des informations arrivée est très utile, simple et est RECOMMANDE' par la même AIRBNB. au lieu d'utiliser les contacts privés.
Nous allons essayer de nettoyer mieux ce que vous nous conseillé mais rappelez-vous que, comme le titre de mon annonce, nous sommes dans la CAMPAGNE et si vous êtes à la recherche de l'extrême propreté a évidemment faux, il doit choisir la ville.
Merci - le titulaire

About the Host, Damiano
I'm a student-worker, live in San Gimignano and study engineering in Pisa.
I restored a barn with my father for 4 years and since 2008 I manage my small bed and breakfast, created just in there.
I like good Tuscan cuisine and fine wine, I like pets and technology.
