This apartment was perfect for the four of us for the 3 days! It's in a great location in the heart of San Gimignano , an excellent, historic, and beautiful medieval hill town in the province of Siena. The owner Giuliana made our initial entry into the apartment as easy as could be she was incredibly hospitable and made all transactions and communication easy.All in all, we would recommend this apartment to any friends planning a trip to Tuscany.and we would of course rent it again, too. Really, we have no complaints--in fact, we *miss* this place.
We stayed at La Torretta in November 2014 , what a lovely place! The owner Giulliana was so helpful, meeting us on arrival. Recommending places to visit and restaurants to eat at. We really felt at home, the apartment is very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable, a lovely little kitchen with all amenities needed, although I never cook on holiday!
San Gimignano is the most picturesque town and a very good base for visiting Florence, Sienna and lots of other Tuscan delights! We would definitely visit again, thank you Giulliana for your hospitality, we would definitely recommend your apartment to everyone!
We stayed for one week annoyed San Gimignano and the apartment immensely.Very clean and well appointed.Thankyou Guiliana.
The first thing that I must say about our stay at La Torretta in San Gimignano is that there were almost no negative things to be found. The apartment was located in the heart of this quaint yet lively town. The apartment had three floors with no elevator- but we preferred it that way! The kitchen was large and very well equipped for anything we could possibly need. It came to mind that the owner of the apartment equipped and decorated as if it were her own apartment and not just a rental. Every Thursday there was an open marketplace just 10 meters away from the apartment which was absolutely wonderful as we could buy any fresh fruit, vegetables, meats and cheeses for the day. A huge plus was that there were two bathrooms in the 1 bedroom apartment which almost never happens in our travels! The entire apartment was absolutely sparkling with how clean it was, from the kitchen to the snow-white linens and towels. The bed was extremely comfortable which is a rarity in Italian apartments for rent. The only thing that was a slight inconvenience was the lack of WiFi. Also, it is better to know a bit of Italian as the Hostess speaks very little English. We had the option to rent out a private garage for 10 euro per day and we were so glad we did because all of the parking lots were more expensive and we were also guaranteed a spot since we were traveling during the holiday season. If we ever travel to San Gimignano again we will most definitely stay here again and I am recommending this spot to all of my friends and family.
