    Siena – an enchanting trip back in time

    Located in the heart of verdant Tuscany, Siena is one of Italy's most stunningly preserved medieval towns. Its historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an enchanting maze of terracotta houses, cobbled streets, Gothic churches and sun-kissed piazzas. As you'd probably expect, it's a foodie's paradise, packed with rustic restaurants serving irresistible Tuscan fare, like tagliolini with fresh black truffles, rare steak with peppery rocket and parmesan salad and crunchy bruschetta drenched in extra virgin olive oil. Meanwhile, shopaholics will be sated by bustling markets and chic boutiques selling artisan jewellery and fine leather goods. With a diverse array of Siena holiday rentals to choose from, you're sure to find your ideal home-away-from-home.

    Siena's fabulous festivals and world-class wineries

    Taking place on July 2 and August 16 each year, the Palio di Siena is a sporting event unlike any other. Dating back to the Middle Ages, and held in honour of the Virgin Mary, this thrilling dramatic ritual sees the central Piazzo del Campo transformed into a race track, with 10 horses and bareback riders, each representing a different city ward, fiercely competing on behalf of their neighbourhoods. The pageantry and raucous festivities surrounding each race is an intoxicating spectacle. If that all sounds a little hectic, you may prefer the gentle allure of a Siena wine tour. The town is surrounded by verdant vineyards and world-renowned wineries, where you can sip full-bodied Chiantis and crisp Vernaccias to your heart's content in a blissful bucolic setting.

    Astonishing architecture in Siena

    You'll find all manner of enthralling attractions within easy reach of your Siena holiday rental. First port of call for many visitors is Siena Cathedral. This breathtaking Roman Catholic church, constructed in the 13th century, is a mesmerising mish-mash of French Gothic, Tuscan Romanesque and Classical styles, with an astonishingly intricate, gleaming white facade. The Palazzo Pubblico is another must-see. This ostentatious, red-brick town hall is an outstanding example of Italian medieval architecture. Be sure to climb to the top of its imposing bell tower for breathtaking panoramic views of the town and surrounding countryside. Art aficionados should set aside time to peruse the Pinacoteca Nazionale. This revered museum is home to a vast collection of Italian late-Medieval and Renaissance paintings.

    Sizzling summers in Siena

    Siena holiday rentals are in high demand throughout the peak summer holiday season, particularly around the Palio in July and August. At this time of year, Tuscany is at its most magical, with long, hot, sunny days and plenty of clear blue skies. Late spring and early autumn are also great times to visit, with pleasantly warm weather and fewer out-of-towners competing for accommodation. Winters are mild by European standards, but you'll need to wrap up warm if visiting at this time of year. Rainfall is fairly consistent throughout the year, so it's a good idea to pack an umbrella.

    Verdant valleys and heavenly hot springs

    The countryside surrounding Siena is impossibly romantic, its lush rolling hills dotted with rustic farmhouses and imposing cypress trees. The region is also renowned for its wild, natural hot springs – heavenly pools of piping-hot, mineral-rich water, hidden within fragrant forests. Also within easy driving distance of Siena is Lake Montepulciano, an expanse of shimmering water surrounded by untamed wetlands. It's a prime spot for birdwatchers, who flock here in the hope of glimpsing herons and rare bitterns.
