We loved staying at this spacious home for one week and wished we had a longer stay. This was our first booking at Expedia for a private apartment, and a huge success. Apartment was large (900 Sq Ft) with spacious living/dinning room, 2 bedrooms, a good sized bathroom, and a kitchen. Apartment was very clean and roomy with air conditioning. The views out of living room and both bedrooms were just beautiful. We could see the magnificent towers, and a little of green Tuscany countryside when it was clear.
We had a rental car and rented a convenient indoor private garage from hosts at a low price of 8 Euro per day. We did not have to fight for a parking space each evening after we returned from touring around Tuscany. We went to the towns recommended by Sarah, all of them were beautiful medieval towns, like Volterra, Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena, etc. We took the bus right outside of the wall and went to Florence as a day trip. It would be very difficult to find parking in Florence. We drove around Chianti wine country on one day.
Hosts Fabio and his daughter Sarah were extremely thoughtful people. They prepared a bottle of wine for us when we arrived. They spent an hour orienting us with places to visit near San Gimigiano, restaurants to eat, places for shopping, etc. Fabio even made a reservation at a nice restaurant for us, which had the best wine country view and food, with good local wine at only 9 Euro a bottle.
The apartment is ideally situated in the center of town (in Piazza Del Duomo), right next to Duomo cathedral, and next to Piazza Della Cisterna (has the best Gelato). San Gimigiano is a beautiful medieval town, we enjoyed walking around town each evening, when the town was quiet and nice after the tourists left. We sat on the steps in front of the Duomo, or on the steps in front of the well in Piazza Dela Cisterna, eating Gelato. These were truly magical moments for us and our 10 year old daughter.
We were happy to spend time in this lovely apartment for a week. We will definitely return to visit and highly recommend this place to all our friends and relatives.
