“wonderful place”
Reviewed 9 September 2011

I strongly recommend both San Gemignano as a great place to explore Toscany and Primetta House. First of all, Mauricio and his wife are very nice, open and hospitable people. Our rooms were nice and comfortable, they were cleaned everyday. The city center is very close - about 2 min walking distance which made us feel the spirit of the city. Every day we made a trip to the different places in Toscany. Mauricio was very helpful when it comes to choosing the places worth seeing. He lent us maps, guidebookes, gave good advice. Also, in the evenings we used to find small nice gifts on our table such us: bittle of wines, fruits :)
Taking into account price, place and these nice, charming couple - there is no better place in San Gemignano to stay then Primetta House.

The spot is perfect, and Primetta and his husband very caring and helpful. A place to stay

the only minus will be the room temperature, despite the radiator it was still a bit cold

Rarely will one be welcomed more effusively and genuinely than by Mauro and Primetta, proprietors of Primetta House. That the welcome was in voluble Italian - for us, incomprehensible - made it no less meaningful. Mauro was quick to dispense a welcoming bottle of red wine, and copious directions on various matters which we re-visited later on with their English speaking daughter, whose name unfortunately we can't recall. The flat itself is comfortable, the kitchen more than adequately equipped (we like to self-cater, and the nearby supermarket has a fine range of fresh meat, produce and vino), and the laundry facilities highly welcome. Restaurants of varying cost (can't comment on quality) are within a five minute walk, as is the entrance to San Giminiano itself. In our view, a terrific alternative to a hotel room.

  • Liked — separate bedrooms, living area and kitchen, nice garden area
  • Disliked — bathroom a bit small, but not a problem
