Charming apartment in characterful medieval city.Very well appointed and tastefully decorated.

5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful two weeks in this historic city. Places of interest abound both locally and within easy reach.We hired a car at the airport but made use of public transport occasionally to visit other cities nearby such as Sienna and Florence to make life easier.Secure parking is provided. There are numerous restaurants within easy reach many of which we sampled. A good supermarket is not too distant supplying everything needed for self catering.

So beautiful and so relaxing

5 of 5
Melangrano was just lovely, so peaceful with your own garden with a great view of San Gimignano. It was fantastic to have the pool to not only swim but cool down too, it’s a salt water pool so no chlorine smell. Roberto, Nadia and Andre couldn’t have been more friendly, so nice to have such lovely hosts. A really brilliant holiday. Will definitely recommend to friends.
