This was one of the most incredible and fantastic places I have ever stayed in. The view from the top terrace is simply amazing. You can spend hours just admiring the landscape and city below. The apartment is well furnished and clean. The second kitchen just below the terrace is very useful. An amazing job was done to adapt the tower to serve as a rental apartment. Also the check in was very quick and professional.

The view from the top of the tower from the terrace is one of the best views you will ever have in your life. It makes you feel like a celebrity to stay here. It is a very special place. Giulia the owner does a great job explaining how everything works and provides a very nice welcome "gift basket" with lots of helpful items. There is no question that you need to be somewhat fit to stay here due to all of the stairs but you get used to the logistics as the stay goes on and the view from the top makes it all worthwhile. San Gimignano is a stunningly beautiful town and it is even better at night and in the morning before the bus tours arrive for their visits. It is like something right out of a movie. Highly recommended for a very unique vacation.
