EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION Torre Becci Suite 6 is an elegant and charming property set on the first floor (without lift) of an historical palace, Palazzo Becci, in an exclusive and privileged position inside the renowned tourist Piazza della Cisterna right in the centre of San Gimignano. Its location is ideal: from here you can totally visit San Gimignano on foot, climb to the top of the towers, visit the several museums, ceramics schools, ancient and modern art galleries (the most famous modern art gallery is located right here), being just a few steps from every kind of service (restaurants, shops...) and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Moreover, the property boasts a unique view over the most famous square of the village where one can breathe in the romantic and authentic atmosphere of the past, above all at nightfall. A portion of the palace is part of the Torre dei Becci, one of the fourteen surviving towers of San Gimignano, dating back to the thirteenth century and situated next to the ancient Arco dei Becci. The square-based tower, from the mighty thick walls, is named after the Becci's, a wealthy merchant family which held prominent public functions during the golden age of this town. INTERNAL DESCRIPTION The charming historic property, equipped with mezzanine, sleeps up to 4+2 for a total of of 2 bedrooms, 1 master bedroom suite and 2 bathrooms. All rooms are elegantly furnished with rare antique items and amazing vaulted painted ceilings with capitals. Following a spacious entrance hall, you enter the beautiful living room with sofa, armchairs, tv flat and wonderful views over the towers and the famous Piazza della Cisterna. Next to the living room there is a large double bedroom with bedside tables, wardrobe, wooden chest of drawers and beautiful view of the San Gimignano countryside. Then you will find the dining room, also overlooking the square, furnished with a large wooden table for 6/8 people and valuable antiques. The kitchen is bright and equipped with small fridge, freezer, oven, kitchenware and table for breakfast. A full bathroom, accessed from both the bedroom and the kitchen, is provided with bathtub, shower and washing machine. The master bedroom suite with a canopy bed, original terracotta flooring of the thirteenth century and small ensuite bathroom (without shower nor bathtub) is very airy and bright, boasting stunning views of the San Gimignano countryside. A steep wooden and wrought-iron staircase, placed inside the dining room, leads to the mezzanine (with low height), furnished with two large single beds (joinable). Included free Wi-Fi. OUR OPINION Charming historic property, elegantly furnished and located in the beautiful and renowned Piazza della Cisterna, right in the centre of San Gimignano. Ideal for families with children or couples of friends who wish to spend an unforgettable holiday in one of the most fascinating medieval villages of Italy, enjoying an exclusive location and a unique view over the square and the surrounding countryside.

APE energy certification level: F 119,33 kWh/m2 per year DESTINATIONS Torre Becci Suite 6 is located in the centre of San Gimignano, one of the most beautiful medieval villages of Italy, surrounded by the green Tuscan hills, olive groves and vineyards. San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is famous worldwide for its several medieval towers characterising its architecture and landscape. During the Middle Ages, in fact, the great patrician families had as many as 72 towers built. Today only 14 towers remain (one of which belongs to Palazzo Becci), but the 13th/14th-century look of the village is nonetheless still intact. Besides the towers, there are also other artistic attractions such as the Romanesque cathedral, the beautiful Piazza della Cisterna (where Torre Becci Suite 6 is situated), the Church of St. Augustine and the Podestà Palace, which 'supports' the second highest tower of the village, Torre Rognosa (almost 52 metres high).
