La Cornice was the perfect B&B for us! It is conveniently located a short walk from the San Gimignano town square, and the view is unbeatable. Benedetta's hospitality is unparalleled. Not only was she helpful and accommodating throughout the booking process, she gave us wonderful suggestions and tips for our daily excursions around Tuscany once we were there. The amenities at the B&B were wonderful, and breakfast was such a treat every morning--homemade baked goods, fresh bruschetta, homemade jams, and coffee made to order. I can't give enough positive feedback for the B&B and hosts.

We stayed here two nights during our latest holiday in Italy. La Cornice is located approx. 700 m from the historic centre of San Gimignano (easy walk, mostly flat). Rooms are modern and include a private bathroom, A/C, TV, wifi, a small fridge and a private balcony. Public car park is available around the B&B without charge. Breakfast is served (at least when we were there in August) in the garden, overlooking the skyline of San Gimignano. The owner, Bernadetta, is very nice and helpful and also speks English very well.

Die Lage ist perfekt, in etwa 15 Minuten ist man zu Fuß in San Gimignano. Benedetta hat uns herzlich empfangen. Das Appartment Mina ist super für 2 Erwachsene und ein Kind, großes Elternschlafzimmer und geräumiges Kinderzimmer. Große Dusche, Shampoo und Seife vorhanden, alles wunderbar. Wir waren außerdem sehr froh über die moderne Klimaanlage und auch das freie Wlan hat bestens funktioniert. Die kleine Küchenzeile bietet alles, was man so braucht. Hier war nur leider das Geschirr nicht ganz so sauber, das sollte besser vor Anreise der neuen Gäste kontrolliert werden. Das Frühstück für 6 Euro war sehr gut. Jeden Tag gab es leckeren selbst gebackenen Kuchen und eine toskanische Spezialität. Das absolute Highlight am Morgen, ist das Frühstück im Garten mit einzigartigem Blick auf die Türme von San Gimignano. Benedetta gibt wertvolle Tipps zur Erkundung der Umgebung. Sie spricht sehr gut englisch. Während unseres Aufenthaltes war es sehr heiß. Zu unserem ganz perfekten Urlaubsglück hätte nur noch der Pool im Garten gefehlt. Alles war super und auf dem neuesten Stand, lediglich dass wir bar zahlen mussten (in der Reservierungsbestätigung stand Kartenzahlung) fanden wir etwas lästig. Man hat nicht gerne soviel Bargeld dabei und in der Wohnung gibt es keinen Safe. Das sollte unbedingt geändert werden. Wir empfehlen die Unterkunft zu 100 Prozent weiter und kommen bestimmt wieder! Liebe Grüße an Benedetta und ihre netten Eltern! Katja und Familie.

The answer from the host:
Hi Katja, Thank you very much for your review, i am really Happy you had a great time in our Place. I am sorry for the dishes, i personally washed all of them together with glasses and mugs in the morning before your check in, i Will for sure check them more accuratelly in the future. I am very glad you loved our panoramic Garden. San Gimignano is and Unesco asset, so as our Place is too close to the historical centre of San Gimignano people are not allowed anymore to build swimming pool here in order to preserve and not alterate the beauty of the place. Please note that in Bed and Breakfast. it we are advertiding our 4 rooms, for which you Can pay via credit card/cash/bank transfert as advertised. However the apartment you booked from our website is not part of the bed and breakfast, so the payment Can be made in cash/Bank transfert or PayPal. I cannot have an electronic payment system for an apartment that my family rent out Just for a couple of months per year.
