“This the top location to explore Tuscany”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is wonderful accomodation in a superb location with a large private garden for your oun use. Ideal for independent travellers who enjoy spacious well appointed accommodation. We felt San G. epitomised the best of Tuscany within its walls.

We arrived on the bus from Florence station, very easy. We were met by Cristina and Mario who were very friendly and welcoming. We were introduced to our apartment and given clear instructions. Siena is only a cheap bus ride away and a wonderful day out. Cars can be hired in San G. and Mario can arrange parking. We took many scenic country drives and a day trip to Pisa and Lucca. Despite touring we felt you could get the full Tuscan experience even if you just stayed in San G.

And yes of course we will be recommending Casa del Giardino to all independent travellers we know.

“Beautiful location and lovely stay”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a lovely stay at this apartment. It's hard to get an idea from the images online, but the apartment is perfectly located (3 mins walk from the centre of town), but at the same time a tranquil little island in the middle of the hustle. There is nothing better after a day spent seeing the sites of this little town (or another in the region), than to quickly return to this spacious, warm, characteristic, tranquil little abode - with its own private garden (and a tortoise we named Reginald).
If you do decide to stay here we would recommend visiting Sienna, and taking an organised wine tour during your stay. The region is deservedly well know for its wine. Oh.. and say hi to Reginald for us.

“An oasis of tranquillity”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

To find such a beautiful & peaceful place to stay within the walls of San Gimignano was unbelievable. This place is a little oasis of tranquillity and calmness even though it is less than 200m from the ever increasing crowds in the centre of the town. You really are completely cut off from the hustle and bustle just around the corner. The apartment is fantastic but the real bonus is the garden which is still lovingly tended by Mario and a real sun trap. You really wouldn't believe that this could exist inside the walls of this town. Mario & Christina were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Thank you

The tortoise was christened 'George' for the week. Don't know why, just seems a good name for a tortoise. He is extremely friendly and chases you around the garden. Be warned though, he is surprisingly speedy and has a habit of biting your toes in the mornings when he is hungry. Sad to leave him and the wonderful apartment after a lovely week

“Beautiful Garden Apartment - Fun Tortoise - Fabulous Location”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent a week in this lovely garden apartment inside the city walls in San Gimignano - Tuscany. All the flower pots were blooming it was just lovely and there is a friendly old tortoise who lives in the garden who loves apples and nibbling on toes. San Gimignano can get very busy during the summer season but this apartment located just a few minutes from the main square is like an oasis - quiet and peaceful. The building is very old and authentic and is stocked with everything needed for a long stay. Hosts Mario and Donella as well as Cristina and Marco were on hand any time help was needed.

“Excellent is an over-used word - but not in this instance.”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was a delightful apartment. It is well-equipped, well though out and sufficient for all your needs. The garden ( and tortoise) make it special too.
The hosts are welcoming and informative. Thanks so much for meeting us in Poggibonsi and then showing us where the supermarket was, telling us about the local Thursday market and giving us suggestions for restaurants. We had a lovely week exploring the streets and alleys of the village - especially in the early morning when it was cool!
