“Perfect base for touring Tuscany”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My family & I stayed in Carlo & Emanuela's beautiful apartment for a week whilst we toured Tuscany. Carlo & his family (Emanuela, Tommaso and his Mother and Father) could not have made us feel more welcome. The apartment was well equipped and in perfect order and the pool was a dream with a fantastic panoramic view of the Tuscan hills. Castel San Gimignano is a great base for touring most of the tourist spots in Tuscany and was very easy to find being less than half an hour from the autoroute.
100% recommendation for the apartment, I am sure we will be visiting again.

Myself my husband and our 3 boys, aged 24, 20 and 10 stayed at casa verbena for 10 days at the beginning of June 2016. From the day we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by Carlo, Emanuela and Carlos amazing parents Anna and Renzo, who couldn't do enough for us, baking biscuits, picking cherries and helping with the laundry, but they were never intrusive, truly remarkable people. The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the gardens and pool area were fantastic, with the most sensational views. The village is small but it has a handy shop, bar and restaurant. We also found a great restaurant called la locanda del borgo which is about a 20 minute walk down a lovely country lane. This is a great base to discover Tuscany. Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and our personal favourite Volterra. We would recommend a car. We cannot wait to return. A big thank you to Carlo and his lovely family for an amazing holiday. Sue Steve and boys. Ps I have to agree with some other reviews that the apartment would benefit from a couch/sofa.

“A relaxing family stay”

This is a really neatly done, clean and modern apartment in Castel San Gimignano. The host is welcoming and available, and the property is well maintained with a terrific (albeit cool!!) pool. The apartment is comfortable, the kitchen functional and there are local food and drink options. Recommended for families. Absolutely need a car!

We thank our guest once again for the kindness! Just one think: we don't understand the meaning of 'terrific pool'!
