About Paolo Castellano
Dear community, thank you for reading my profile and considering to spend some of your time with me or my team in Montegonfoli :-) I'm a very social person, probably because I was born in the south of ltaly. I love to meet new people and new cultures and being an host allows me to discover several things and places while being in Italy. My daily job is into high tech, I'm one of the fathers of the world's most important video editing software ( (Website hidden by Airbnb) and I'm editor for the leading italian high tech magazine ( (Website hidden by Airbnb) At the same time I love old Italian lifestile, nature, countryside and San Gimignano, as well as sea and the other places where I grew up (Naples, Montegonfoli and Amalfi Coast). I love the good and healty food, as well as cooking it; I make my own bread, pizza and cookies using my self made natural yeast. I make olives (under salt or brine), dried figs, capers under salt, egg plants under oil and special liquors (just the ones that you can't find in a shop, but sorry, they are not for sale), in few words all the things that my grand mothers made in the past. If you're lucky, you could taste my famous "Pizza alle cipolle caramellate", "charamelized onions" :-) My current fitness program consists in growing up 2 nice babies and 20Km per day by bicicle. I have several hobbies, probably too many, including "urban agricolture" of my time to make vegetables for me and my babies without using any chemicals. I love photography and I made almost all the pictures of all the listings using a very old bridge camera; poor low light performances but great tele and macro, and all files are SOOC, straight out of camera, #nofilter. My idea is that reality must be better than pictures. My life motto is "BENISSIMO" and I love the people who smile :-), and I'm very happy to give and return as much smiles as possible :-) Hope to meet all of you soon! Sincerely, Paolo
Why Paolo Castellano chose San Gimignano
Owners decided to share their farmhouse to allow it to survive. In Italy there are many taxes and renting apartments to nice persons is another fine way to travel. Every day we meet people coming from any place of the world, and we always learn something!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Our farmhouse is very nice inside, but what makes the difference is what is outside, due to our wonderful location. Many apartments have wonderful views from inside, but all share our wonderful garden and many places to see sunrise or sunset, while drinking a glass of good wine or with people you love.

Montegonfoli Sei is one of the seven apartments in which the ancient Montegonfoli farm is divided. We are in the countryside, away from the chaos, traffic and noise of the city, but just five minutes (about 4km) from the center of San Gimignano, the famous medieval city of towers, perfectly preserved as it was at the height of its success. The city is full of beauties, works of art and museums, and is a center of excellence in food and wine. Famous are the wine of the popes, the Vernaccia di San Gimignano, white, and the Chianti Colli Senesi, red. Our company produces grapes for both wines, which are then vinified by the "Tono" factor, a very charismatic and famous character in our area. Nearby there are plenty of places to visit, famous and award-winning wineries and established restaurants, two of which can also be reached on foot.
Montegonfoli is located in the countryside of San Gimignano, the pearl of Tuscany. It is a wonderful place to visit, to find the best places for beauties and wonders of Tuscany. We are in the middle between Florence and Siena, and close to Pisa, Volterra, Lucca, Cortona, Val d'Orcia.
