In the summer we usually can accept reservations for a minimum of 3-4 nights; If you can't stay for 4 nights, you may always ask, if we can, we would be happy to say "yes, we can" :-)
For stays of 7 or more nights, there is a lower rate per night.
The San Gimignano Town introduced an accomodation tax of 1,50Euro per night per person over 12yo, for a max of 5 consecutive nights (max 7,50Euro per person), that you'd pay onsite.
During the early spring or on fall, we provide free heating when the indoor temperature requires for it, for two hours per day, one hour in the evening and one hour in the morning, between 7.30 to 8.30. In some apartments the free quota is based on real gas (GPL) used. When the guest makes the check IN, we'll show the gas counter and the first 1 cubic meter per day it will be free, the guest will pay the exceeding consumption only at the SRP (as of today, 2017, it is 4,50Euro per cubic meter). We provide free WIFI, with certified coverage in the lounge and common areas. As of today, early 2017, in this apartment, Montegonfoli TWO, the WIFI works in almost all the rooms, except in the second living room.
Our house has few rules , beyond those suggested by common sense and good manners .
Although we love animals, currently pets are not allowed.
Smoking is allowed, but kindly ask our guests not to smoke indoors, and, in public areas, to respect children and pregnant ladies, also outside.
Many people come to our place to relax and enjoy the magical silence of our position, so we ask kindly to respect other guests, without generating too much noise and try not to monopolize the common areas (pool, barbecue area, laundry ).
Breakfast is not included, it can be requested at an additional cost of 5,00Euro per person (Italian, consisting of coffee, cappuccino, croissants) or you may simply order what you want. If our guests desire to have a continental breakfast, our neighbors, a few meters from us, are happy to offer it using organic products of their production, at a cost of 10,00Euros per person in their "Social" restaurant.
The WIFI is free and is provided in the social area and around the pool; in the winter of 2016 it should be extended to all of the apartments.
In autumn and spring, if the indoor temperature requires for it, the heating is provided free of charge for two hours a day. Extra heating, if requested by the guests, is charged per its real gas consumption.
The laundry is shared and is a small building that includes a washing machine and a quite large area for drying clothes. In order to avoid "crowding" the access is usually void to the guests who will stay one night only. The soap/powder is usually not provided, as well as the coal for the barbecue.
Note: Italian laws compel us to ask your documents at the check IN. Extra EU guests should show their passports, because ID cards or driving licences are not legal.

Dear Airbnb 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 ( and I'm editor for the leading italian high tech magazine ( 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 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, egg plants and special liquors (just the ones that you can't find in a shop, but sorry, they are not for sale). 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.
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!
