About Michele Iadevaia

My family and I have lived abroad and in Italy, we are a very friendly 'team', we all speak Italian, English and French.

Michele Iadevaia purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Michele Iadevaia chose Asciano

We loved this area as we saw it and we felt that everyone would have Aeneid to have a holiday in this house. We have furnished it as we would have liked our holiday house to be.

What makes this apartment unique

Michele and Francesca are so relax and placid, making you feel completely free, and at the same time supported and close

In brief, Michele and his family, as well as the excellent premises of the Podere Le Splandole, made your holidays even much more delectable than you expected

Our stay was in a great Tuscan setting.

The house had everything we looked forward to, and was situated near many places you would like to visit.

Michele and Francesca's service were perfect.

No doubt that we would stay there again if in the near future we decide to go back to Tuscany.

Many thanks Francesca, many thanks Miche.

Charming and well located apartment

  • 5 of 5

lovely, modern, well equiped and tastefully decorated apartment . The location in the "Crete" region close to Siena is perfect. Good public bus service to Siena is a plus. Michele, the owner, lives next door and is very friendly and helpful. He will give you good advice on restaurants, shops, etc.... The only thing we missed a little was the possibility to sit outside.

Stunning place and cannot wait to return

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Michele, the owner, is a treasure! We arrived to find the apt. far above expectations from the photos. He had a bottle of local wine and glasses ready for us in the kitchen. This apt. is large, light and airy and has a gorgeous setting. It seems fairly remote with vast country and views surrounding. However, it is very close and convenient to many wonderful villages and a myriad of culture and art. Michele works from home and was very generous with giving us ideas, directions and great tips on restaurants and other places to visit. We couldn't fit it all in and plan to go back to Italy and stay at this place for 2 least 3 weeks and possibly bring another couple as there are 2 bedrooms. We did the cities this trip (Venice, Florence, Rome) but would prefer to do a more relaxed Italy trip next time and experience much more of the venues available in Tuscany. Also this apartment is completely newly renovated and is a beautiful mix of brick, beams and alabaster. Tastefully decorated and so comfy! Thanks so much Michele! Carol & Bill

Wonderful place in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wunderschön auf einem Hügel gelegen. Die Wohnung ist hochwertig und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, selbst in der Küche fehlt es an nichts. Für einen Aufenthalt in der Gegend um Siena eine absolute Empfehlung. Einzige Schwachpunkte sind der fehlende Balkon und die Tatsache, dass man hier für alle Unternehmungen das Auto benötigt.

Een mooi ruim apartement, smaakvol ingericht. Gelegen op de eerste verdieping van een 'podere'

  • 4 of 5

Het apartement is smaakvol ingericht. Het ligt op de eerste verdieping van een podere die geheel is opgedeeld in een flink aantal woningen, meest bewoond door Italiaanse gezinnen.

Het voordeel is dat je door de 4 ramen een prachtig uitzicht hebt op de Crete van Siena. Het nadeel is dat je niet even de tuin in kunt lopen.

Het ligt op een ruim kwartier rijden naar Siena, dat vanaf de binnenplaats aan de horizon zichtbaar is.

De eigenaar Michele woont in dezelfde podere en is behulpzaam met het aandragen van tips voor restaurants, winkels, zwemgelegenheden en stadjes.

Kortom: zeer aan te bevelen voor wie Siena en de ruime omgeving ervan wil verkennen.

Einen schönen Urlaub in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Eine schöne große Wohnung mit einem tollen Ausblick.

Die Unterkunft war günstig gelegen zur Erkundigung der vielen schönen Orte und der tollen Landschaft.

Michele gab uns sehr viele Informationen und Empfehlungen bereits schon vorab und Tips für unseren Aufenthalt.

Vielen Dank dafür !

The house is so perfectly located to give the possibility to easily reach famous destinations such as Siena, Firenze, Pisa, Perugia Arezzo, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni etc. or to relax walking and appreciating the area and the views...different in every season. The hot spring of Rapolano Terme is only 10 minutes far and you must try won't want to leave! In Rapolano you have to try an adventure park Saltalbero, especially if you have children, they'll love it. There isn't a best period to visit the area because every season has its allure, the colours of the hills around the house will change and give different feelings.

Among the several activities that you can do in the area there is a very convenient lake where you can fish, only 3 minutes far from the house.

In 15 minutes you can be in Siena where you can walk and discover the medieval town, visit museums, the cathedral, the other numerous churches and buildings.

One of the most pleasant thing to do in this area is food and wine testing in the several farms and vineyard in Chianti, Montalcino etc.

If you happen to book your holiday around the 2nd of July or the 16th of August you could be part of one of the most fascinating horse race of the world: the Palio.
