Fabio Apartments San Gimignano
Reviewed 13 August 2016

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.

Our apartment was located in a palazzo just off the central Piazza del Duomo in medieval San Gimignano. The furnishings were homely and the apartment spotlessly clean. Tricky steps to the small but adequate kitchen. A little terrace with and internal courtyard view gave an outside space to eat in peace and quiet. Fabio was extremely helpful and transported us from the garage (good value rental) to our apartment. Recommended.

We stayed in San Gimignano for two nights, arriving Saturday lunchtime and leaving Monday morning.
Fabio and Sara met us whilst parked up outside the main gate and we followed in the car to their private garage outside the city walls.
We then got driven by Fabio to the apartment with our baggage.
Both Fabio and Sara were very helpful when we arrived, pointing out the best restaurants, bakeries and places to visit (and also some of the not so good ones to avoid!). They even booked us a table at a restaurant for our first evening, getting us a decent seat with a view.
The apartment itself if very central - located in the square with the Duomo. The rooms we very pleasant, plenty of space for the two of us.
Do note that it's up two flights of stairs, so could be a problem for some, but then the entire town is hilly so if climbing is an issue then this might be a town to avoid!
All in all an excellent stay, and we'd stay here again if / when we next visit San Gimignano.

If 6 stars were available i would use them all!
If and when we return to Tuscany we will definitely stay with Fabio and Sara again. Cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough! Everything about our stay in Fabio Apartments San Gimignano was just superb. Starting with the lovely greeting and personal welcome we received upon arrival from Fabio and Sara right through to the location, apartment appointments and the historical beauty of San Gimi our stay was all that we had hoped for.
Fabio and Sara took time to guide us through places to visit, restaurants and general travel recommendations throughout Tuscany. They guided us through all aspects of the apartment and indeed the town of San Gimignano when we arrived.
Even our farewells were personal and warm.
Outstanding accommodation perfectly situated in Tuscany!

Our second stay in this accommodation. Fabio and Sara provide a warm welcome and offer good advice on where they recommend to eat places to visit in the area. The accommodation is clean and spacious with air conditioning recently installed and quite considering it is situated just off the main square but note the apartment is on the third floor so there are over 50 steps to climb. We arrived after 8pm and although a complimentary bottle of wine was waiting for us we would have preferred a bottle of milk, tea or coffee, some bread, a little cheese, some fruit as a 'Welcome Pack' as we had not eaten, some basic items in the fridge would be a great help and not cost too much. Otherwise we were very happy and would certainly return again as it is a good apartment and location to enjoy San Gimigano and the beautiful surrounding areas
