About Claudia Pirazzi

We are a young couple from Rome, both working and recharging our batteries in this enchanting place. We love this place and would like to share the experience of living it with other persons who want to get away from city-stress but at the same time do not want to renounce on comfort, space, light and sun!

Claudia Pirazzi purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Claudia Pirazzi chose Gambassi Terme

If you see the photograph of the ruin, you will know. The romantic ruin of Caspar David Friedrich became our home! And nice persons stay below and are our neighbors. Kind and friendly persons.

What makes this apartment unique

It has the best views, is spacious and on one floor. No steps! Close to the parking, light,light,light! Mosquito screens everywhere, easy, comfortable and sophisticated at the same time. It is simply gorgeous.

Guestbook comments from the manager

space. We stayed in the Terrace nearly all the time when we came back or in the morning for breakfast. In the evening, when there had been a rain shower, we did light the fire place and had a wonderful bottle of wine with our dinner. Wifi worked well and the morning sun came in to wake us gently. We liked the place and can recommend it for couples. We will be back next year, maybe when it is a bit warmer to be able to enjoy the pool more and not only as a relaxing water surface in a beautiful landscape.

We will be back next year in summer

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Terrace even in winter when the sun came out. In the evening, when there had been a rain shower, we did light the fire place and had a wonderful bottle of wine with our dinner. Wifi worked well and the morning sun came in to wake us gently. We liked the place and can recommend it for couples.

Great place, just a few miles from San Gimignano. Quiet setting with beautiful views, especially from the communal swimming pool. Lovely rustic authentic stone house with complete decor in old style but with all the necessary amenities - that also worked. Highly recommended. There are some km to the nearest restaurant, and maybe 8-10 km to the nearest shopping mall. If you're partying and alarm, it's not the place. There are about 5-6 houses in the same style, and when we were there some of these houses were also rented, typically for families with children. It gave no problems of any kind. About 15 km to Certaldo, from which there are frequent train departures to Florence (about 1 hour drive) and Siena. About 15 km to the very beautiful medieval town of Volterra, which is high with a magnificent view.

We will be back next year, maybe when it is a bit warmer to be able to enjoy the pool not only as a relaxing water surface in a beautiful landscape and in swimming suits instead of anoraks.

A little dissappointing overall.

  • 2 of 5

The listing led me to believe that the property was very private.

In fact it was on a small estate of other holiday gites. The pool was gorgeous but could be used by all 20 other gites. Not very private at all.

The terrace is facing the road used by all other people staying. Not great.

The dirt road leading to the gite was a nightmare to negotiate. Also not mentioned in the listing. Over all I thought it was pretty expensive.

Owner's Response: Dear Gerry, we are sorry to hear you were not pleased with your stay at the Hamlet. If things like privacy is so important, a shared pool and an apartment within a Hamlet might be the wrong choice. The apartment is big for two persons, nobody can peep into it from no side as it is on the first floor of a free standing house. We will take your input to maybe plant at the one side of the terrace plants for more privacy on it, the other side is onto the green and above the garden of the only co-owners, so already with privacy. It will be impossible to close it completely and honestly people are coming back every year, so some persons like it´s exposure to the sun and we will ask the administration to take extra care of the white road, which they do usually every year at the end of the season.

feeling like at your tuscan home

  • 5 of 5

We did enjoy our holiday in the very nice Mauro's and Emy Terrace. The appartment is furnished with high attention to all details with a very cozy atmosphere giving you the impression to stay at your place in Tuscany. The view from the appartment is fantastic with the skyline of Volterra the beauty of the green tuscan hills. BBQ, fireplace and the wood stove gives you all the confort to cook but also to create the right armosphere. The little Borgo is very close to all major hold City and Village of Tuscany making the week to short to enjoy everything. Very nice, thanks for renting your holiday home!

Superb place and view

  • 4 of 5

I have spent 3 weeks at this place. You can easily access San Gimagnano and Volterra 10Km and also a huge grocery store at Certaldo. You can visit Chianti area as you want, perfectly situated between Firenze and Sienna. When you're back from the visit you can enjoy the calm in this village (only 6 houses) with a huge pool and a view of volterra and the country side of Toscana.

First time in Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful property , well equipped and tastefully furnished. Just as advertised. The location a little remote for us, would have liked a shop or bar within walking distance but that is a matter of preference. Otherwise a really lovel and relaxing week to recharge the batteries.

San Gimignano is only 12 km from here and Florence about an hour and a quarter drive, in the heart of Tuscany in Italy it is still within the famous Chianti area.This particular lightful little jewel is situated within a completely new restored Tuscan Hamlet, called Borgo di Mummialla. Surrounded by nature and nestled between 2 Natural parks: “Riserva Naturale di Castelvecchio” and the “Riserva naturale di Montenero” it is only 17 minutes from San Gimignano, Town declared by UNESCO to be part of the World's Architectural Heritage; beautiful walks in unspoiled nature or jogging in the morning or swimming in the landscaped pool makes it a unique opportunity.
