Lovely apartment in a fantastic location
This apartment is in a great place for exploring Tuscany and the guide that Andrea had put together was so helpful. He talked us through it and recommended places to visit and eat. There were 4 adults in our party and there was plenty of space. So many thoughtful touches such as milk, tea and coffee provided. It makes such a difference when you’re self catering to not have to go straight to the shops for essentials. We were going to eat out on Monday but it’s worth noting that many of the restaurants in the guide (and generally) seem to be closed on Mondays. WiFi worked well and we closed the shutters during the day and the apartment stayed quite cool despite very hot weather. The dyson fans work well. We would definitely recommend this place.
Beautiful country apartment close to Siena
Andrea and Barbara were absolutely fantastic throughout our stay. The location is as described with the apartment away from the crowds of Siena but within a short drive to the town or many of the other places within the region. I highly recommend staying here or any other location that Andrea and Barbara own. Also, if you are a keen photographer, be sure to inquire about photography tours when you make your reservations.
Great property in a great location.
Andrea was a great host. Met us at the apartment and showed us everything and was available for travel Tips and questions throughout the stay.
The apartment was as wonderful as advertised, extremely clean and most comfortable. Andrea provided a comprehensive listing of sights to see and good restaurants in several locations. My favourite was Soloperpassione in Santa Colomba. Andrea was an ideal host and very responsive. The location is very handy to visit key highlights in Tuscany and we would definitely rent this apartment again and highly recommend it.
A wonderful home in amazing countryside close to Siena
We really enjoyed our short stay in your wonderful home in amazing countryside close to Siena. The apartment is situated in an imposing, but intriguing ancient building nestled between lush hills. It is furnished in a comfortable & stylish manner, perfect for travellers who yearn for something a little different. Once there you feel remote but safe & of course Siena is a short drive away. We appreciated Andrea’s advice on restaurants in Santa Columba & Siena & enjoyed some delicious meals. Our explorations took us to Volterra, which was amazing, as well as Colle Di Val D’Elsa which was an unexpected discovery. Our only problem was that we didn’t stay long enough to relax more in such serene surroundings!

A peaceful haven close to special places.
We loved our two weeks in this unique part of the world in a special apartment owned by generous people who understand what travellers need. Art, food, isolated walks, a warm home to come back to at the end of the day where we could review our experiences by the fire. A best kept secret:travelling at this beautiful time with frosts and sun and not too many crowds!
