Make a holiday villa in Siena your home away from home

Siena is a beautiful Tuscan hill city that has preserved much of its medieval character. It’s there in the quaint alleyways, ancient churches, towers and the sprawling main piazza known as Il Campo, famous for the Palio horse race that’s held twice a year. In fact, Siena looks a lot like it did way back in the 14th century. Surrounding the city is a lush countryside of olive groves and vineyards, both of which have contributed greatly to Siena’s wealth.

Visitors to this part of Tuscany need comfortable and lovingly furnished properties to stay in, and HomeAway has some exceptional Siena holiday villas to that end. With prices starting from £450 per week they represent excellent value for money. Those with a passion for the outdoors need look no further as these holiday properties are located in the fabulous countryside close to the historic city. Siena holiday apartments within the medieval metropolis are also available and benefit from close proximity to the major sites. If the taste for medieval towns doesn't stop with Siena, spend some time in nearby Montepulciano where more beautiful holiday rentals are available.

Things to do

-Churches: Siena’s churches range from simple, stone structures such as the Church of San Francesco to the grand and imposing 15th-century cathedral. One of Siena's religious highlights is Pieve a Castello, a rural church built in the 11th century, although historians believe its origins are much older.

-Historic monuments: Siena’s stone cityscape includes numerous castles and the 100-metre-high Torre del Mangia. Built in the 14th century this slender structure has dominated the Palazzo Pubblico for almost 700 years. Visitors can also explore the magnificent 13th-century Montalcino Castle and the red-brick Medicea Fortress. This huge defensive stronghold also houses an open-air theatre.

-Gardens: Visitors with Siena holiday apartments can unwind in the serene settings of its gardens. Orto Botanico is a large, green expanse in the heart of the city with plant species from many different countries. Among the ilex and oak trees of Chianti Sculpture Park are sculptures from famous artists from five continents.

-Festivals: Siena's Palio attracts visitors from all over the world. This colourful and spectacular festival is held twice a year and sees the Piazza del Campo packed with dirt for bareback horse races. They are accompanied by pageantry and parties including feasts, parades, flag waving and solemn ceremonies. These events date back to medieval times, and due to their popularity, it is advised to book accommodation well in advance.

Weather in Siena

Siena is a good year-round destination with warm, mild weather for most of the time. The summers can be hot with July temperatures peaking at around 33°C. Winters are mild with average daily temperatures of around 10°C. Although Siena receives plenty of sunshine, the skies during winter are often overcast.

Travel to Siena

Travellers with holiday villas in Siena can fly into airports at Pisa, Florence, Rome and Bologna and connect to the medieval city by car or rail. The railway station is outside of Siena so some visitors may find it more convenient to come by bus. There are many SITA bus services throughout the region. Hire cars are a popular means to get around, although the centre of Siena is only accessible by foot.
