At the end of 1979, when San Gimignano wasn’t again destination of tourists from all the world, I began to rent the apartment “Santa Fina”, “the first”, of whom I am very fond because it accompanied me during the years and for its wonderful view from the big terrace.
Little by little I began to rent other apartments and bedrooms scattered along the historical centre of the city.In 2000 I opened with my son Francesco “Palazzo Tortoli”, a palace of the fourteen century in the wonderful Cisterna Square, a luxury palace of big architectonic importance, marked in all the most important international guides.
At the end, in 2002 we opened “Podere Ponte a Nappo”, a beautiful farmhouse with swimming pool recently restored and completely plunged in the green. From here we can enjoy the wonderful view of the Tuscan countryside and of the city of San Gimignano, which is in front of the farmhouse at only 900 m and easily reachable by feet in 10 minutes.
I give hospitality every year with my sons Francesco and Andrea to tourists from all the world, with whom we entertain in long conversations, seated in the garden in front of the towers of San Gimignano, tasting a good glass of wine. The most important thing which give us satisfaction are the guess, who every year come back and recommend our apartments to friends and relatives.
Hoping to leave a good memory of us and of your holiday in San Gimignano, I will be happy with my sons Francesco and Andrea to give you hospitality.
I wait you!
