This B&B Ponte a Nappo also called B&B San Gimignano Diffuso has three locations, two in the San Gimignano itself and one outside the village, called Ponte a Nappo.
This excellent B&B was unexpectefly good, not just because of the great location with swimming pool, nice terrace and beautiful view but also due the nice and friendly people.
We choose the location out of San Gimignano due to the swimmingpool and free parking place, and breakfast is only served at the outside location.
An inside Gimignano location has its advantage: a breakfast is easy to get anywhere in town, your car can still be parked at the Ponte s Nappo and you can freely use the terrace and swimming pool. One thing to remember: its an almost 1 km walk up to the town entrance!
Although this a B&B only, you can order during the day and until approx 9pm local wines (good!), beer and other drinks.
The breakfast was also well set up with a lot of (free) choice of food and beverages incl fruit, cereals, yoghurts etc.
On top of that they serve twice a week (Tuesday & Thursday) a dinner using local Italian food. You can opt-in for this dinner in the morning and so we did the one time we were able too: starting with a plate of tastful local meat and cheese, then a great pasta followed by chicken served local style (loved it) with fried potatoes, ended by a nice desert of cantucci with self-made liquori. Cost of this great dinner was €28 pp, excl. the drinks like wine & water.
Most fantastic and unexpected were the owners and people servicing this B&B. It is owned by the grandmother of the family, a very nice lady although only speaking Italian very helpfull and very kind. Two of her sons are helping her running the B&B, again both very kind and friendly. Franceso, the youngest, partly working at the reception, speaks excellent English. Ofcourse there are other people around for cleaning etc; all are very service focussed. It felt like staying with friends.
