Situata a ridosso delle mura di San Gimignano, la « Casa Alberto » è un vecchio fienile diventato un piccolo appartamento con soppalco.
“When I found Alberto's place on Airbnb, the pictures were exactly what I'd dreamed Tuscany would look like. If you can believe it, the pictures don't do the view and his home justice. It is fully self-contained and had everything we needed. Alberto was very responsive to our questions and providing recommendations which included bringing us firewood to use the fireplace on the veranda where we spent hours enjoying the space, both in the morning and evening. The location is just below the walled city of San Gimignano which made it a great home base in Tuscany as well as an easy walk from everything we needed including the supermarket.”

“My wife and I recently stayed in Giulia’s 12 story tower in San Gimignano. Giulia met us at the door when we arrived during a pouring rain with winds gusting up to 30 miles an hour, checked us in quickly, and helped carry our luggage upstairs. She gave us a tour of the tower, explaining how to work the lights, heat, stove, etc. She had a welcome basket with snacks and a bottle of wine waiting for us on be kitchen table, and had stocked the refrigerator with fresh pasta, sauce, salami, and a few drinks. When we arrived at the top floor, we found the retractable roof that accessed the rooftop terrace had a slight leak from all of the heavy rains and could not be used that day. She took care of this situation quickly and professionally and waived the cleaning fee for the inconvenience. The view from the top of the tower was breathtaking and was one of the highlights of our entire trip. The sunsets were spectacular! This is truly a unique experience, and if you don’t mind a “few” steps, then I highly recommend staying here.”

“This is the perfect apartment in San Gimignano. Perfectly situated in a back street so it is tranquil and quiet and yet moments away from the centre. Simona was the ideal host, available and ready with local knowledge. The apartment was spotless and has everything you need. I just wish we’d have been staying longer. As frequent visitors to the town I feel like we’ve finally found the place to stay we’ve always been looking for. Don’t forget to stop into the shop for some local wine!”
