My family and I are the owner of the tower house. I personally welcome guests so you will find me on arrival :) We live 20 minutes far from San Gimignano. We do also rent another accommodation in the nearby palace right next to the tower house (1 bedroom apartment) and a big Tuscan Country house with pool 4 km from San Gimignano, it will be a pleasure for me to come and pick up from the parking or to the bus stop. I will help you with your luggage, we will reach the city centre together, the tower house is set in the pedestrian area and we have the authorization to enter by car for a short time ;)

Hi!! My name is Giulia and I live few Km away from San Gimignano, a small authentic medieval village which still Today conserves its historical architecture with a lot of high stone towers! San Gimignano is setting between Siena and Florence in a wonderful countryside very close to Chianti Area and only one hour driving from the nicest Tuscan Beaches! This small town also offers a lot of Tuscan Osteria, characteristic Restaurants and excellent wineries. In the countryside around San Gimignano there are a lot of important Wine farms and Saffron Cultivations. I like to travel and also I love to meet people coming from all over the world! Together with my family we rent holiday accommodation both inside the city centre of San Gimignano and in the nearby countryside. We hope to see you soon during your trip in Tuscany. :)
