We were welcomed by Gabriella and her son who helped us carry our bags up to the apartment and where to park the car. The apartment had amazing views of the Tuscan hills from the lovely deck and was most pleasant. It was a few seconds to walk to the Main Street and a 10 minute walk up to the Grand Piazza, everything was handy. Tea and coffee and biscuits were supplied. Around the corner was the shop with all supplies we needed. A very pleasant stay.
House of Gigi had some positives and some areas to improve. Overall, the experience was fine. I would suggest the host provides a parking lot number to meet guests. We were using navigation and had troubles locating the parking lot by the street name only. The parking lots all have corresponding numbers (1-8) and signs directing you to them. I do appreciated our host having patience when we met because we had troubles finding the location.
Positives: The view and location. The view is beautiful and the deck was great to hangout. The location was in a prime spot in Montepulciano. The kitchen is nice, although we did not use it except for some glasses.
Areas to improve: Bedding. The sheets will very low quality and the bedding left something to be desired. Also, we could not find an extra pillow for our friend staying on the upstairs couch.
We traveled through Italy for three weeks, staying in Air B&B rentals for 90% of the time. For the price we paid, we were a bit disappointed.
I'm sorry, for if the laundry is not of his liking, he is the first person who declares.
For the cushion there are altogether four pillows, two beds matrinmoniale, two in the sofa bed, whereas you were three people in a pillow was advancing.
However, it was enough to feel any kind of problem that we would come to fix it.
We had a wonderful stay! The house is well situated in the town, close to the shops, restaurants and parking (we had a car for day trips around the area). The photos represent the home honestly.
Gabrielle was a gracious host, providing a welcome package of coffee, milk, juice, waters, cakes and cookies!
But the best feature is the balcony overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Drinking coffee as the sun rose over the hills in the morning will be a fond memory!
We had a very pleasant stay in the House of Gigi apartment in Montepulciano. We would stay again and we recommend it.
The town of course is beautiful and the apartment is perfectly located in the historical centre and close to shops. It has everything you need. The balcony and view across the green valleys is breathtaking.
Gabriella was kind and helpful, she directed us to convenient parking close by in sight of the apartment and she came out to meet us to guide us to the apartment. When we got there we saw she had very kindly left coffee, milk and other essentials for us - which was very useful for a short visit.
Great location and affordable. Could have been cleaner (we found hair on the dining room table, mold in the bathroom and crumbs all over the couch). Location and view were great!
I'm sorry that you have found these drawbacks, it would have been welcome had known right away so he can come to solve problems.
Now peròdevo say also you also you could be more clean and not leave the shower clogged with hair and broke the door of the bathroom cabinet
Abbiamo soggiornato un week end e ci siamo trovati molto bene. La casa e' pulita, dotata di ogni comfort e molto carina. Si trova al centro di montepulciano e la posizione e' estremamente comoda. Raccomandata!
Very nice stay in Gigi appartement for the new years evening. The place is very central and could not have been better. 50m from the main shopping street and 200m from the central plaza and with an incredible view on the Toscan countryside from the terrace. It was my first airbnb experience and what a good first...!! Thanks Gigi for your hospitality
