Mi chiamo Calonaci Benedetta, abito anch’io a San Gimignano e insiema alla sig.ra Giuliana Taddei, ho deciso di creare una struttura ricettiva composta da vari appartamenti di proprietà della mia famiglia che metto a disposizione dei tanti turisti e visitatori che ogni anno vengono a godere delle bellezze che San Gimignano e l'intera Toscana possono offrire. Mi sono dedicata con grande dedizione e piacere all’attività di affittacamere e casavacanze. Faccio questa attività con grande passione e dedizione perche mi piace molto stare a contatto con le tante persone che vengono a visitare la nostra bellissima città. Cerco di offrire un servizio di qualità, il più attento possibile alle esigenze dei miei clienti. La mia più grande soddisfazione è quando, al termine del loro soggiorno, i miei ospiti mi dicono che hanno passato una vacanza stupenda, che si sono trovati benissimo nei miei appartamenti e che sperano proprio di ritornare a San Gimignano. Ecco, questa è una cosa che mi rende davvero molto, molto felice perché mi rendo conto che la mia attività è servita a di far passare un breve ma significativo periodo di svago e relax a delle persone che sono venute da me proprio per cercare questo.
