Review 5010: Giglio Hotel, Dependance Anna Apartment


Review by GailS from US who is a SlowTrav Contributor

2bed/1bath apartment in Montalcino, Tuscany South


May 2011, 3 nights


The Dependance Anna is a short walk from the Gilio hotel, towards the Fortezza. It was in a building with many other units not affiliated with the Gilio hotel. A parking pass is provided to park below the Fortezza in the resident parking area.

Nearby Amenities

Montalcino is a very small town so everything is within walking distance. The Coop grocery store is on the opposite side of town.

The House/Apartment

The apartment was in decent shape. One bedroom had a full size bed and the other had two twins. There was a bathroom that was adequate size and a kitchen but no living area or sofa so the only place to sit was at the kitchen table.


There was a shared sitting area that you went through on your way up the stairs to the apartment.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The furniture was in good shape but there was no living area for comfortable seating. The only seating was at the kitchen table.


The full size bed was quite firm. The bathroom was a reasonable size but the sink was a pedestal and there was little room for placing toiletries. There was plenty of hot water and good water flow in the shower.


The kitchen was good sized. We didn't cook but it appeared to be fully furnished.

Problems or Bonuses

We were disappointed that the only seating was at the kitchen table. The bed was less comfortable than most we've had in Italy.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The Gilio responded quickly to my requests. We paid 100 a night.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We would not stay here again. We have stayed in better places in Montalcino that were not available for our dates on this trip.
