We loved our stay at Chiara’s house in San Gemignano. It was very comfortable, stylishly decorated and with modern facilities. Being able to park there was very helpful. It is central to the other attractions of Tuscany and you can drive , or even easier- catch a train.
This is a very high quality furnished apartment in an isolated tranquil location. I am filling in reviews for 6 different hotels/apartments that my wife and I stayed in on our road trip. We kept notes as we went along and Casa Bondi comes out top for many features - space, quality of furniture and fittings, size of bathroom and size & power of walk-in shower. Probably equal top on class/style generally. I had wanted to stay in San Gimignano but wanted a bit more chill-out space. Great choice. Tranquil spot with glorious view from the bedroom of the towers of San G' across rolling fields & woods. Little more than a 10 minute drive to the town, and easy access for the motorway to Siena. Glad we chose it. I had an email telling me where and when to meet the owner in the nearby village. She was there waiting for us together with the agent to make sure it all went smoothly. Short drive to the location, quick tour of the apartment & check we were happy then the owner left us to it. Perfect. There are no places to eat/drink nearby and we tried in vain to find a supermarket near San Gimignano, so stock up at Pogibonsi where there are plenty of food stores.
Not really any negatives. There were several little steps as you navigate around the rest of the building from the car park, then up some steps to the front of the property and then a flight of stairs inside to this first floor flat. Not a problem for us, but might be a struggle for someone less mobile. There is also a slightly challenging driveway to the property from the road. Got the knack after the first time so it wasn't a problem.
Casa Bondi is "Simply the Best".
We did not want to leave after spending 7 wonderful nights there. Unfortunately the Villa was booked at the time we wanted an extension.
From the moment you walk into the property you can tell it is exceptionally well maintained and is very, very clean.
This is beautifully modernised apartment and everything is practically brand new. The bed is amazing ! The kitchen and bathroom are first class.
The views are just as they are portrayed on the website. It is so convenient to San Gimignano, as well as the rest of the Tuscany region. There is a major supermarket just 5klms away in Poggibonsi. Also the local village has an excellent bakery and small shop.
Special thanks to Chiara, the on site Manager who helped with other needs such as sightseeing,dining, wining, etc. Chiara lives on site and is very helpful.
All in all, we could not fault Casa Bondi. In any way. We have already recommended the property to three groups of friends. One group has already booked and are looking forward to the stay.
We will be back in Casa Bondi in the future.
