Centrally located, well equipped and modern apartment.

5 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay here. 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.

A Beautiful And High Quality Villa Oozing Character In Glorious Tuscany. Fabulous jacuzzi, private pool, country views and grounds. A large, generously equipped kitchen with high quality appliances and lots of preparation surface. Four very good sized bedrooms with clean and comfortable beds ( we slept well here despite the very hot weather) and very nice bathrooms. Spotlessly clean. Well located for Tuscan touring and Autostrada, 1km to gorgeous Cetona with local supermarket and shops, cafes and restaurants. 10 minutes to large PAM supermarket. Excellent BBQ with wood provided. Owners Valerio and Daniela are welcoming and knowledgeable. The pool is cleaned at 7am each morning. The gardens are beautiful and overlook olive groves and sunflower meadows. This brings mosquito bites in hot weather so do come prepared if you are susceptible.
