A Medieval Night's Sleep
Staying at the magnificent Palazzo Buonaccorsi in historical San Gimignano (jimmy-nya-no) is a medieval enthusiast’s dream. As you enter through the barely wide-enough main doors, a surprisingly large labyrinth of corridors, courtyards, steps and turns await. Every corner and wall is adorned with antiquity; everything is original from 1200 AD; finger–worn handrails, heavily trodden stairs, but all still magnificently maintained with great delicacy and beauty. The Palazzo is one of the oldest buildings in town and the owners, Pier-Luigi and Marzia Boldrini are only the third family to own this wonder in the last 800 years. Each of the six rooms is stunningly simple in their original medieval design; terracotta stone floors, thick wooden beamed ceilings and shuttered mullioned windows. Throughout the rooms and Palazzo you’ll find period furniture and medieval tools, many of them originating from half a millennium ago. And what would you expect to pay in such exquisite surrounds? Rooms are only € 50 - €90, depending on the room size and prices are set throughout the year; no high season or special events to contend with! Treat yourself to a night in this spectacular piece of history so you can enjoy in equal measure the magnificent history that awaits just outside your door.
