We chose San Gimignano and this apartment as our centrally located home base while touring Tuscany. We absolutely loved the location and the apartment was more than we expected. It provided a very quiet and tranquil place to wind down and the layout was great for cooking and relaxing. If you walk to the top of the lane you can see the walled town of
San Gimignano which was quite a spectacular view. We found it a bit too far to walk given that our entire days were filled with hiking and walking, but there is plenty of pay parking lots just outside the walls of the town and it is literally a minute or two drive from the apartment. There is a small town down the road with a large grocery store and one local butcher/food market (very small) in San Gim. We drove the countryside to Florence, Cinque Terre, and a few other spots and absolutely fell in love with the region. Our hosts at the apartment were very very hospitable, and took the time to show us the place and answer any questions we had. Parking is easy and there are even laundry facilities. I would definitely stay at this apartment - great value for money.
