La Mezzana Rossa
At the end of 70's and during 80's, tourists from all over the world came and shared the apartments with our grandparents, staying long periods in San Gimignano; a town that was not so famous as now. The friendly and warm approach of our grandparents towards visitors always impressed us. They gave their guests the chance to experience San Gimignano, its culture and history.
In 1999 I was a student at the university and, together with my brother Igor and my parents, we decided to restore the building belonged to my grandparents and to again rent rooms to tourists, offering them the opportunity to again experience in the heart of the historical centre of San Gimignano.
The name La Mezzana Rossa arose from the typical Tuscan red stone of the roofs in Tuscany.
Today La Mezzana Rossa is a large XIV Century building located in Sant?Agostino Square, one of the most quiet places in San Gimignano.
La Mezzana Rossa can offer multiple solution, rooms and apartments, within the same building. After the initial restoration works in 1999 another opportunity occurred in 2008 allowing us to enhance historical details such as a fresco in the living room.
Staying with us at La Mezzana Rossa will be an unique experience in which you can discover the delights of the town, the countryside, the history and treasures of San Gimignano.
Our philosophy is to give a great value to hospitality, to a friendly and helpful approach with our guests, to let them experience San Gimignano more like a resident than merely tourist.
To host you at La Mezzana Rossa would be our pleasure, in a comfortable and informal location, showing the treasures of San Gimignano.
