“American Ladies”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We loved the location, being able to stay so close to the town center! However, the accommodations are a little rough...beds hard, very musty, minimal kitchen, not real clean (floors especially) and sparse living room furniture (only a dining table and older/not so clean loveseat). My 75 year old mother had to sleep on a fold out chair, with a rod in her back (luckily we made friends with someone local who brought her a proper twin spring cot for half the stay). Unless you have your own car (parking space right in front of the apt!), you have to haul your bags all the away across town and the hills can be brutal! Travel light! Same with shopping for groceries...great Coop across town but have to haul bottles/food up over the hill and might be difficult for older travellers. It is unfortunate that the owners do not provide the minimal necessitites of toilet paper & paper towels...bulky items to have to haul, along with food & beverages. Also, no auto drip coffee maker (only a one cup Itailian style which was not acceptable with four guests), but owner did provide French style press which worked a little better.

Macie is indeed a great location, if you have a car the must coveted car parking space in the historical centre of San Gimignano is great, the apartment however is in the town so it's easy to walk to amenities so fantastic too for those without car as these guests were. Obviously when taking a holiday without having your own transport you need to expect having to walk to get to things. This does need to be taken into account especially where grocery shopping is concerned. With regards to the apartment, this is a very unique rental and as we describe has stone walls to keep it cool as it was originally where olives were pressed. Dehumidifyers are provided in the rooms beacuse of this characteristic. The furniture there is as we state in the description and the apartment is always clean, ancient cotto floors and stone walls give a different impression to bright modern sparkly floors and white walls but the beauty of this apartment is it's ancient character and charm and it is more suited to persons looking for something original and unique. However clients should always contact us if they are not happy with the standard of cleanliness so we can check thisout immediately and resolve the issue immediately.

We do describe on of the beds in the apartment to be an armchair bed (i.e of the pullout variety)however there is also a double bed and another normal single bed in the apartment which the lady with the back problem cold have slept in. We are contactable at all times and we need to be notified at the time of any issues regarding the apartment so that we can intervene these issues were not mentioned to us neither to the owner (who provided another coffee machine in addition to the tradional Moka used here).
Apartment rentals are self catering so it is not usual to find any provisions, the owner advises though that he usually does leave inital toilet paper.
