We spent some wonderful days in San Gimignano. The apartment was a perfect base for discovering the small town and the surroundings.The apartment was small, but was well equipped and very tastefully decorated. Very comfortable beds! Fantastic photos by Renata's husband, Duccio. Don't miss to visit their shop on the square below. It was a fantastic feeling to stay in a building which was built in the 14th century.
Duccio and Renata are a very helpful and nice couple, who helped us with tips on visits and walks. They had also stocked up with breakfast items in the apartment, which was nice and much appreciated.
We can highly recommend this place for a nice stay in San Gimignano.
This was a delightful apartment and could not have been better located, right in the heart of San Gimignano. It is cozy, spotless, quiet and well equipped. The space is small but comfortable, and very tranquil. Renata met us right in the main square and we followed her as she walked the short distance to the quiet street and her apartment. After making sure she answered every question with attention and thought she went with us to the parking area outside the center and walked us back to make sure we were well oriented. It is worth taking time to see her husband’s beautiful photographs in their centrally located gallery. We absolutely would recommend this apartment with our highest praise.
Renata's apartment was compact and efficient and was well supplied with basic cooking stuffs. Best of all, it was in the perfect place, just above the Duomo almost at the highest point of the town, right near the fort and the best free veiw in town. Renata and her family were very kind and helpful, and we would hope to stay in the apartment if ever we should return. Arnie and Jackie.
What a lovely apartment in such a great location! We really enjoyed our stay in San Gimignano and appreciated the suggestions on where to eat from our hosts. Highly recommend this apartment as a place to stay. Thanks Renata & Duccio!
Renata is such a gracious host. She suggested many delicious restaurants for us, and gave suggestions about what to see and do around San Gimignano. She had stocked the pantry with breakfast foods, tea, and cafe- such a warm gesture and very appreciated by two travel worn newlyweds. The apartment was beautifully decorated, cozy, clean, and had everything we needed. An extra treat- we were able to go with Renata's husband (a very talented photographer!) on a photographic tour of Chianti. We highly recommend this lovely little apartment and can't wait to come back! Thank you, Renata!!
We have stayed in several Airbnb places and this one ranks at the top. The location and accommodations could not be better. Communications with the hosts were prompt and pleasant. San Gimignano was an enchanting place to stay for 2 nights while exploring Tuscany. One warning: Duccio's photographs are as enchanting as the village; it may be hard for you to leave without making a purchase.
What a GREAT HOST and A GREAT PLACEWe stayed at Renata's apartment in San Gimignano for 8 days during our trip to Tuscany. We used the apartment as a base for day trips to wineries and small hill towns, and it is a perfect place for that. The apartment is very very clean and functional as it is advertised, it is located inside the town which is very convenient. Renata has been very helpful in giving tips on where to go and where to eat, and all her suggestions were amazing, it wouldn't have been the same trip without her.
We highly recommend Renata and her apartment , what a lovely person. We will come back again
Alper what I have to say ........... Thank you Thank you Thank you. You made me a beautiful review that says all about your stay in my apartment. I am very happy that my tips has been good for you ..... I always suggest to restaurants, or things which I have personally tested and then if you have been very good for me I have the certainty them to be also for my guests. Renata
It is indeed a beautiful apartment Renata. Tiny, but adequate for two of us. A bit tricky to find initially but once you work out where the entry to the city is your directions made sense.
We loved the special touches like the quality linens and stylish decor. It is in the perfect position to explore the sights of Tuscany.
We especially enjoyed the evenings when t was cool and free of tourists.
It was very special to be able to stay in such a beautiful town.
I would thoroughly recommend the apartment to others and hope to return on day.
We were surprised at the extra tourist tax when we left. It can add up if you stay for several days.
Dear Christine, thanks for your Thank you for your wonderful review, I'm glad you and your husband will remember our apartment that we try to make it nice and welcoming for our guests. Maybe you did not read well but between the "house rules" is present the information written on travel tax which must be paid even if you stay one night only. It 's a municipal tax that does not depend on us. Hope to see you in San Gimignano in one of your future holiday. Many good wishes Renata
PS: I will quote below the text that is also present in the details of the apartment La Rocca on AIRBNB:
Cost of the Apartment must be added the tax of Euro 1,50 per person per day (fee to be paid in the months from March to October - for up to 10 days). Children under 12 years free.
Small, but perfectly formed apartment in the heart of a beautiful town. Spotlessly clean and well equipped for a short stay. Renata was most helpful and very friendly, welcoming me with an enthusiastic wave across the piazza on the day I arrived! I was travelling alone, but would say that the apartment would make an excellent base for a couple looking to explore the local area - which is sensational! One tip for those travelling by car, do some research into free car parking on the edge of town.
We had a great time staying in this beautiful city of San Gimignano! I never had the chance to meet Renata, but her sister Stefania who was very nice and helpful. The apartment was really nice, just as the pictures promised. Everything was clean and nicely decorated, we felt at home. The location within S G is perfect - so close to everything; nice viewpoint for sunsets, close to the main square and with a nice wine bar just around the corner.
I would definately stay here again, and recommend this place to all my friends.
