My name is Benedetta Calonaci, I was born and I live in San Gimignano. Together with my family we manage this bed & breakfast and two apartments in the historic center and we take care of our customers with dedication and attention in order to make their holiday a unique experience, trying to make our guests spend a pleasant holiday at the same time make it feel at home.

CALONACI BENEDETTA purchased this bed and breakfast in 2016

Why CALONACI BENEDETTA chose San Gimignano

I do this activity with great passion and dedication because I really like to stay in contact with the many people who come to visit our beautiful city. I try to offer a quality service, as careful as possible to the needs of my clients. My greatest satisfaction is when, at the end of their holiday, my guests tell me they have had a great holiday, which they loved my own apartment and hope to return to San Gimignano. Well, this is something that makes me very, very happy because I understand that my work has served to push through a brief period of joy and happiness to my customers.

I do not have a luxury hotel, and this is why I try to base and direct my activity on a human level, and of contact with the person in front of me, trying to meet the needs of my clients and trying to rediscover the great hospitality that characterizes us, as well as the values and tradition of our beautiful village of San Gimignano.

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

The breathtaking view of the towers of San Gimignano which is perceived by the garden is amazing. The our accomodation is called "La Cornice" a picture that is San Gimignano! All this is only a 6-minute walk away from the Old Town; it's great to park your car and relax after a day spent discovering the beauties of our city ... and it's like being inside the city!

Lovely place to stay with wonderful owner/hostess!

  • 5 of 5

The room and property were amazing. Room nicely decorated. Beautiful olive trees and flowers and a view of San Gimignano from the terrace. Benedetta is a lovely person. So kind and helpful with information on local restaurants and activities. Breakfast served each morning on the back patio. Benedetta even made her own crossiants. I definitely recommend staying here. My husband and I certainly hope to come back some day.

Gina Room at B & B La Cornice .... a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our host was absolutely captivating. We had gotten off at the wrong bus stop, and she retrieved us from the side of the road. From the minute we set foot onto her property we felt welcomed and pampered. The B & B is newly remodeled, clean and chic. The breakfasts were supurb and very reflective of local foods. This was by far a highlight of our entire vacation.
