Studio Apartment in Historic Centre of San Gimignano
Il Nibbio is a cosy apartment located in the historical town of San Gimignano, on one of the streets leading into the centre, so just a few minutes' walk away from all this gorgeous town has to offer. A highlight of the apartment is the lovely roof terrace which enjoys pretty views over the countryside, and there is a further patio area below at the entrance to the apartment.
The entrance gate to Il Nibbio leads directly onto the roof terrace, the perfect spot for relaxing whilst enjoying the pretty view of the countryside beyond. Steps (16 approx) lead down to the apartments entrance and a further terrace area which is furnished with table and chairs for eating al fresco. The apartment itself is in studio style, comfortably furnished and with a cosy atmosphere. The open plan living/sleeping area consists of a kitchen corner, dining table and chairs, wicker easy chairs, satellite television, a sleeping area with double bed and a separate shower room. There is also a washing machine for guests use.
It's a lovely location for enjoying to the full the sights and sounds of Italian life as located inside the historical town of San Gimignano, on one of the streets leading to the centre just 5 minutes walk away (traffic in the historic centre is limited to residents only). The town is a real joy to explore with a wealth of monuments to visit, craft shops to browse, wide selection of restaurants to try and lovely pavement cafes around the piazza's to sit and watch the world go by. Many other wonderful sights of Tuscany such as Florence and Siena are within easy reach either by car or by local bus and train connections via Poggibonsi.
Cars are restricted inside the city of San Gimignano, but you can park the car in one of the car parks just a short walk outside the city walls.

ll Nibbio was exactly what my wife and I were looking for on our recent six week stay in Italy. We wanted a lovely apartment with a beautiful view to use as a travel base during our four week stay in Tuscany. La Bella Toscana was very professional in every phase as we rented it and the website photos of the apartment are accurate. The apartment was very clean, comfortable, quiet, and located in a safe area just a short walk from the main piazza. It was close to everything in San Gimignano, yet gave us a sense of privacy because of it's unique setting. We enjoyed cooking many of our own meals in the apartment's small kitchen and spent hours on the terraces. We were also glad that the apartment had a washing machine because it allowed us to pack lighter than normal. We had visited San Gimignano several times, but always stayed outside the city. We loved being in the city itself this time because we really got a feel of the local flavor. I would highly recommend Il Nibbio.
