San Gimignano, better known as the "Manhattan of the Middle Ages", is a unique, charming historical village in the very heart of Tuscany.
Situated on the green tuscan hills, it is a rare gem which will make you live an authentic medieval experience.
Moreover, its artisans and its locally sourced products will make you feel and taste the authenticity of a small italian village.
San Gimignano is also a great base point to visit the whole Tuscany. As a matter of fact, the best of Tuscany can be easily reached within 40 minutes by car: Chianti, Siena, Florence.
For the "sporty ones" there are also several choices among horse back riding, bike tours, and golf courses too at the terrific Castelfalfi, which lies only 30 minutes away.
Our Palazzo Becci is set on one of the main squares of San Gimignano, in the middle of the most fascinating medieval place in Tuscany. Built around one of the main San Gimignano Towers, the property is conserving the charm of a historic residence of XII century.
The property has amazing ceilings, and it's a charming, magical, historic and thoughtfully-furnished apartment situated at the first floor of the historical palace. Gorgeous views from every window. The front rooms overlook “Piazza della Cisterna”, while from the back windows of Suite 6 and 4 you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside.
You can also enjoy (upon request) a typical Italian breakfast or an excellent Tuscan lunch at the restaurant bar in Piazza della Cisterna right under the house. Everything is at walking distance.
