Overview

About the property

Attico grandissimo a pochi passi dalla stazione e dal centro storico di siena

Casamia è un appartamento attico veramente grandissimo, ha un soggiorno di 54 mq, tre camere da letto matrimoniali, due bagni di cui uno con vasca ed uno con doccia, cucina abitabile, 2 ampie terrazze abitabili fornite di gazebo, barbecue, sdraio, divani in vimini, tavolo per mangiare e parcheggio privato. L'edificio è ubicato ad 800 mt dalla stazione ferroviaria ovvero dal centro commerciale che ospita la risalita meccanica per il centro storico, che è raggiungibile anche direttamente a ...
edi (percorso al 50% in salita) dalla via Caduti di vicobello. Per i più pigri c'è la fermata dell'autobus davanti casa. Sconsigliato l'uso della macchina poiché nel tempo che si prende l'auto, si arriva in centro (non percorribile in auto a causa della ZTL) e si cerca un parcheggio, si arriva in centro a piedi molto più alla svelta. Dalle terrazze si gode di un bel panorama, non ci sono altri fabbricati di fronte alle due terrazze e si vede la collina di Vico Alto al di la della quale si estende il Chianti senese. L'appartamento è completamente pavimentato in legno, ideale per famiglie con bambini (dotato anche di lettino-culla, seggiolone e giochi per bambini), dotato di wi fi, ascensore e lavatrice. La cucina, ben accessoriste, comprende frigo e freezer, lavastoviglie, macchina da caffè espresso "Lavazza", kettle, tostapane, microonde, forno. Il soggiorno, arredato con mobili di antiquariato, è dotato di tv sat, docking station, ed uno studio dove è presente un divano letto matrimoniale: lo studio è chiedibile mediante un soffietto scorrevole che lo trasforma, al bisogno, in una stanza da letto.

About Francesca

I'm Francesca, Alice's mother and wife of Francesco, I live and work in Siena as a freelance architect and I put in this house all my soul: the house belongs to my family from the 50s when my grandfather built the palace.

My grandfather was born very poor in 1917: his mother was widowed at age 27 with five children to feed, he, being the younger male, did not go to war (World War II) and this was his salvation, it could work and study until he became a worker in a factory. Workman became director and finally owner. Hard worker and a man of talent, expanded his business and moved to where it is today Casamia.

He built the building you see today, placing behind the factory and on the flats for the workers of the factory. The top floor of his home: Casamia.

I love this place because it is the symbol of the tenacity and dignity of my grandfather, his great strength and his great courage and is also the symbol of an era that no longer exists, of a time when you could do great things, starting from having nothing.

Francesca purchased this apartment in 1950

Why Francesca chose Siena

Because my grandfather would be proud of it.

What makes this apartment unique

The house is really big and spacious, it is very nice and also well located: not in the busy historical center but quite close to it, to reach the center by foot; quite close to the train station but not to much to be bothered by the noise of trains.

Casamia is close is half way from the center of Siena and the main roads that will take you in Chianti area, to Florence, Arezzo etc.

Charming apartment on edge of town with country view.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was spacious and functional. Kitchen had all of the modern features with a large refrigerator. Would have been nice to have more than one electrical outlet in the kitchen but it was manageable. Living quarters had a collection of antique furnishing which added to the charm. However, would have been nice to have had some more comfortable seating. The balconies were perfect for late afternoon relaxation and unwinding after a busy day with very nice vistas. The off-street parking was very good for security. The biggest down side was the quality of the mattresses. Would suggest these be upgraded for future guest.

The penthouse was wonderful! Excellent location near train staion, bus depot and shopping.

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse has a real "homey" feel to it. All you need for a comfortable stay. The large balcony with a beautiful view was a great cocktail lounge. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, bowls and lots of dishes. The extra large refrigerator had lots of space for all the groceries and wine, too. All the amenities of home. The owner was very gracious and helpful with special requests. We highly recommend this lovely property. We enjoyed it VERY MUCH!

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our three couples visited Siena for the first time and stayed in the apartment. The apartment was perfect for the six of us. Two balconies where we watched the sunset and BBQ our meals. Plenty of room and fully equipped with everything you could want. It is close to and in walking distance of restaurants, shopping and the old city.

We had asked Francesca to show us Tuscany, some wineries and olive oil manufacturers. The tour she prepared was exceptional. While we headed towards Montepulciano she gave us a history of the area. Her knowledge is amazing. In each of the towns we visited she shared the historical significance. She arranged lunch for us at one of the Wineries - La Palazzetta in Montalcino. Lunch was an understatement. Mama prepared a feast which we could not finish. Wines were exceptional.

We covered so much of Tuscany that day and gained so much knowledge of the area, the people and the wines that we cannot cover it all. Needless to say it’s a day we will never forget.

Stazione di Siena e centro città
Car: not necessary

The apartment 'located just a few minutes walk from the train station and the lifts leading to the historic center of the city' and the commercial center of Portasiena.

In 5 minutes walk to the train station or the historic center of Siena, you can 'comfortably go shopping without taking the car, but we are also a 10-minute drive from the hills of Chianti, 20 minutes drive from the spa Rapolano spa. In 45 minutes you can reach Florence in about 1 hour dell'Alberese the nature reserve, in the heart of Maremma. Ideal for those who must follow the conventions polyclinic hospital which is only 3 minutes away by car. Ideal for those who want to visit the Citta'di Siena also for the Palio, having a stay away from the chaos of the city center but very close to it.
