The photos shown in the listing are very accurate but do not come close to being there in person and having the history and the beauty of the house and its' surroundings wash over you. The property was very well maintained, and the personal touches of the owner's wonderful antiques and books make it easy to imagine that you are living there in your own very well-loved home. My personal favorite day was a day I stayed behind alone while the others went into Florence. Working in the wonderful Tuscan kitchen and looking through the door across the gorgeous landscape was a dream come true. And strolling through the dining room doors onto the terrace and just sitting and watching the birds soar in the quiet of the landscape was bliss as I had never imagined. Another in our group, a professional musician, was transported every time he sat down at the grand piano in the wonderful acoustically live music room. His joy of spending any spare moment at the instrument was our joy in listening. Kate kindly helped us with printing tickets for the Duomo and even met us with them in Florence near the Duomo. They were both kind and helpful in walking us through the house when we arrived and pointing out how various features work. We all enjoyed drives through the countryside and visiting several of the other Chianti villages and the drives up to the tiny villages of Lamole, Volpaia and Vertine. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone I know and I would go back again in a heartbeat, given the opportunity. Thank you so much, Kate and Francesco, for giving us memories like we've never made before.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The owner and her keyholder were both very helpful , flexible and easy to communicate with. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the complementary fruit basket and a few nespresso capsules and tea bags to get you started were a great touch! The location couldn't really be better if you want to be in the centre of Siena - everything you might want to see in the city is less than a 15 minute walk away. There are 5 restaurants of varying styles and price points within 60 seconds walk, so you don't have to go far to get some supper. You can also park easily at the nearby multistory parcheggio (just outside the controlled traffic zone) from where you can be on the main road to visit other places very easily. The only downside of being so central is that it is not a quiet location - but you can't have a everything on your doorstep and complete silence! So if you are a light sleeper, take earplugs and you will be fine. Highly recommended.
