Convenient: From our home, San Gimignano is just a panoramic, romantic 10-minute walk. Porta San Giovanni, the main entrance gate, can be reached by the ancient Via Vecchia, an ancient path lined with elms and cypress trees that crosses behind our backyard. Along the way, you will also find a connection to the famous Via Francigena.

Strategic: From San Gimignano, which dominates the Valdelsa and Sienese hills, the most interesting tourist sites can be visited in a day. Siena, Florence, Pisa and the Chianti Classico (Castellina, Greve & Radda); Certaldo, Volterra and Monteriggioni are conveniently reachable by car or public transportation. The bus stop is 150 meters from our home.

Peaceful: Despite the proximity to the historic center from the top of our hill, you can't see a trace of asphalt. Above and hidden by the trees, our nest feels miles away from the noise and crowds.
