We loved our stay at Silvia's apartment! The apartment was large and had was equipped with everything we needed.
Silvia was a great host and on our arrival she had left us some goodies including cookies famous in the region and some of their home grown olive oil.
The apartment was well located to explore Siena, Tuscany and the Brunello/Chianti producing vineyards.
On our last night we made pizzas in the wood fired brick oven along with Silvia and her friends. It was a highlight of our trip to Italy.
We hope to get back soon as there were lots of other things we would like to have done but we just didn't have time.
