Casa del Giardino is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever stayed. It is a peaceful oasis. The apartment is located far enough away from the throng and close enough to everything you could ever want or need, including world-renown gelati.
The garden at Casa del Giordino is beautiful and well-appointed. You can sit quietly among the flowers, soak up the Tuscan sunshine while being lulled by birdsong and church bells. Mario and Cristina are kind, welcoming, and generous hosts. I look forward to returning.

“Honeymoon delight”
Reviewed 2 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We spent three wonderful days here. Cristina and Mario met us promptly and escorted us to our free parking. Mario took our bags and met us at the door of our home away from home after Cristina walked us through the town highlighting local restaurants on the way to the apartment. They were kind enough to give us a bottle of local wine and a box of chocolates for the Easter holiday.

The apartment is cozy and quiet and every small detail had been thought of. The garden is gorgeous and a wonderful place to relax. It is quiet and peaceful- we would have never known we were inside the town.

San Gimignano is a fascinating town with interesting museums. We also enjoyed the street market on Thursday morning and purchased fruit, bread, cheese, and meats for a picnic lunch.

We enjoyed our stay so much we wished we could have stayed longer!

Quiet but convenient location in San Gimignano. The apartment and its garden are a perfect combination for a short or longer stay. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. The welcome and introduction to the apartment, by Mario and Christina was much appreciated. They also went out of their way to assist us, when we had a problem with our hire car. We were very grateful for such assistance.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 11 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

As others have mentioned, this superb property is located very close to the central piazza in San Gimignano, but is nevertheless a haven of peace, quiet and tranquility with its lovely little garden (complete with friendly tortoise).

There are two good restaurants (Antiche Mura and Dulcis in Fundo) less than 5 minutes walk away and a supermarket within reasonable walking distance.

In searching for negatives, the only points we could come up with were variable wifi strength at times, some occasional noise from the person upstairs (who seemed to be walking around in high heels on a wooden floor) and no dishwasher. But these were minor negatives and did not detract from the quality of the place.

Cristina speaks good English and is informative and very helpful. She even went out of her way to arrange a dentist appointment for us.

Cristina and Mario also arrange free parking if you come by car and a permit to drive in and out of the old city (which has the dreaded ZTL zones) to drop and collect luggage.

Strongly recommended.

“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.
