About Agostino Caltran
Hello my name is Agostino. I am an engineer and a lawyer and because of my job I travelled very much. I love travelling and meet new people, discover new countries and taste different cultures. I travelled through most of the continents , and they all fascinated me. I always try to understand local habits and enjoy tasting the local cuisine, Asian and Japanese are my favourite. I like sports: tennis, soccer, riding, skiing, cycling, swimming and golf is my favorite one. Nothing is more exciting than travelling and meeting new people so I will be happy to welcome you in one of the most beautiful region of Italy, welcome in Tuscany!
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage offers all the features for a perfect holiday, also because of the excellent location. It feels like you are in the middle of the Tuscany country side and yet if you take the bus you are just 10 minutes away from the Siena city center.

this property was amazing. it fulfilled all our dreams. the location couldn't have been better. We rented a car and did day trips to areas north, and south of siena. At night we parked our car in the convenient garage, and we took a taxi in and out of siena each night for dinner. so easy and convenient.
our only issue was some communication with the owner. I had paid the first two installments a few months prior. that amount included the heating cost, which we had no issue paying. the morning of our departure, our host came to the door and asked for the payment for the heat. because I had paid some months prior, I forgot the heat was included. because we no longer had euros we headed to the bank for exchange. I was in the bank and fortunately my friend had realized we had paid already. we got back to the property and explained this to the owner and showed him our documentation of the transaction. he agreed, and there was no issue. It was a bit unsettling as we had to leave and head north to Milan for departure. we all agreed that the owner should have been aware of the payments.
despite this problem we would highly recommend this property.
a true gem in every way.
I want to clarify the matter.
On your arrival I told you that the heating was an extra and you did not object anything, therefore I did not think to be necessary to verify your payment receipt confident that you would be aware of what you have payed for.
Sorry for the inconvenient.
Very nice place as described in the pictures. Convenient to Siena or nearby.
Arrived and was met by the very nice owner. Place is exactly as described in the description and photo's. Wonderful place. Very nice and enjoyable. Very convenient to any item into Siena or nearby area.
A few items of note from other peoples reviews. The owner does have two nice German Shepard dogs. They do bark in the mornings. I am a light sleeper so I always bring ear plugs with me whenever I traveled. This made it so I couldn't hear the dogs. If you rent a car be carful pulling out of the garage as it has a slopped concrete apron. I scrapped the front spoiler on my rental car several times.
Would stay at here again.
Many thanks for your comments, I can't do anythings for the garage concrete apron.
Regarding the dogs they are closed till 8 a.m. and they should not disturb my guests, they are guard dogs for my and your security.
Beautiful home, wonderful location and a terrific host.
We really enjoyed and loved our stay. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt completely at ease and cared for. The home is absolutely gorgeous and lacks nothing. Such close proximity to Siena (bus stop nearby was great and extremely convenient) with stunning views.

Thank you, I hope to see you again
Mr. Caltran's property is a perfect Tuscan getaway. He is extremely accommodating and goes out of his way to make it feel like home. I would recommend this to ANYONE.
Thank you for your nice review.
I hope to see you again in my property.
This is an exceptional property.
The surrounding area and the view out each window we're beyond our expectations. The interior of the property did not disappoint. Each room was tastefully done.
Agostino was kind enough to greet us at a very late hour due to unpredictable travel delays. He also provided a booklet of bus tickets that we were able to use on our first trip into Siena. The bus is predictable and easy to use. The caretaker of the property was available for our every need. When a pipe sprung a small leak he was able to get a plumber out and have it fixed within two hours. That doesn't happen very often in America! An amazing highlight was waking up to the Bells from the church in Siena. When you open the window of the master bedroom you have a beautiful view of the Siena City churches and Towers.
I will only briefly mention two small negatives. One was occasionally hearing the dog bark in the early morning hours. And the other is a need for a new mattress in the master bedroom.
Please do not hesitate to rent this property you will not be disappointed!!
thank you for the nice review.
I hope to see you again at the cottage.
Regard your mentioned negative :
-sorry if my dogs disturbed you but as you know they are guard dogs for your and my safety.
-the mattress of the master bedroom is new and is in wool, probably you are non used to wool refill.
Magnificent views of Tuscan hills and Siena. Exceeded our expectations.
As fellow HomeAway rental owners we appreciate the extras. This newly remodeled cottage has a beautiful view of the owners gardens, Tuscan hills and the city of Siena. Beautifully decorated with a private entrance, a private garage and located across from the city bus stop. Extras include a private patio, sauna and both bedrooms have en suite baths. The owner provides a fully stocked kitchen, coffee, crackers, spices and even wine. The perfect location to drive for day trips to Florence, Cinque Terre or the many wineries and beautiful towns surrounding Siena. Siena is just a short bus ride away for dinner and experiencing this fantastic city. The perfect location to experience living in Italy. Our trip highlight was an e-bike (electric) tour with Fred E-Bike. The owner recommended Fred E-Bike and we couldn't imagine a better way to experience views of Tuscany that can't be seen from a car or bus. We highly recommend this beautiful cottage.
The owner is only pleased to have kind guest as Don & Montie Rouse.
I hope to have other similar guest.
