Consiglio vivamente l’appartamento di Valeria, spazioso, ben arredato e pulito, fornito di tutto il necessario.
Posizione comoda con la macchina per visitare questa bellissima parte di Toscana.
Un ringraziamento a Valeria ed alla mamma per la loro gentilezza e disponibilità.
L'appartamento di Valeria e' in posizione perfetta per scoprire i dintorni: Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano, le Terme di Rapolano .... L'interno spazioso e ben fornito. Ospitanti gentili e disponibili. Molto consigliato!
We've been booking a place to stay from August up to now, stayed more than 15 flats traveling UK, France, Italy, felt Valeria's house was the best among all. And I need to say that I always check the reviews and compare the flat with others' a lot. Before booking this flat I also read the review about the train station, Asciano train station is just 50meters away from the flat, very small train station but if you want you could go to Firenze, Siena whereever you want, very convenient. Maybe the person who wrote the review down there was confused. Asciano train station and Asciano MOM train station is different, and at least if you are going to a place that you don't know, you can just copy the address and paste it on gmap, you can easily find this flat is just near to Asciano train station. And as the host replied, at trenitalia where you can book your train ticket, you need to click the tab of "Tutti I Treni" which gives you cheaper and more train tickets, maybe trenitalia made a default on "Le Frecce" because those trains are expensive but fast. This is little tip I can give you.
Flat was very spacious with big livingroom, nice kitchen with all the appliances maybe enough for more than 6-7 people at a time, two twin bedroom were very comfortable. In the bathroom, plenty of towels (big and small, very clean). On the ground floor, one more very nice bathroom and private parking lot, washing machine, two bicycles which were very nice for discovering the town.
Valeria was very helpful, giving us all the informations, always taking care of us on all aspects. We couldn't meet in face to face but on the evening of check-in day we could (website hidden). On the fifth day her mom came to give us present. Neighbors were very nice too.
If you have car, it's much convenient to go to supermarket which is 2km away from the flat. Price is cheap, host is super nice, good location, big and spotless flat.
Super strongly recommended!!
Valeria's apartment is huge and would suit almost sort of visitor - those who want to cook for themselves and those who just want a comfortable bed and a good bathroom. It's about a kilometer from the old town, so it's really for people with cars rather than train travelers. The station's just up the street, though, which is a slight problem in noise terms - if you want to leave the windows open, you'll have the odd train and truck roar by, and not just during the day. It didn't stop me from getting several good nights' sleep, though, so I'd still give the apartment a thumbs up. I didn't meet Valeria but her parents - who have only limited English - met me and managed to communicate everything I needed to know.
La casa es amplia. La cocina perfectamente amueblada, y un vecindario tranquilo. Valeria es una anfitriona genial, al igual que sus padres. Nos han dado muy buenos consejos y ayudado en nuestra estancia en la Toscana. Recomendable!!
La casa è ampia. La cucina completamente attrezzata e un quartiere tranquillo. Valeria è un padrone di casa, come i loro genitori. Abbiamo dato molto buoni consigli e aiuto durante il nostro soggiorno in Toscana. Consigliato!

Casa ampia e confortevole, ospitanti gentili e (website hidden) siamo trovati molto bene.
Asciano è in un'ottima posizione per raggiungere città e altre mete turistiche. Splendide le crete senesi!
The apartment was in a central location to visit Tuscany. However, it had some flaws.
It was quite far from the town center, we had to go by car to Asciano.
The train station wasn't on the website of trainitalia and at the station were not identified which trains stopped there, making it impossible to use the train station to move to Siena, for example.
The apartment was spacious and had amenities. However, the mattresses were small and uncomfortable and there were not enough large towels. Only one!.
I am sorry that not everything was as you expected, but I have to precise some things.
The apartment is about 2 km from the center of the village, as I wrote on the description. You need a car to go to the village but most of all to visit all the most interesting places in the area (Siena, 30 km, Florence, about 100 km, Arezzo, 45 km, the Crete, in an area of 5 to 20 km far).
The train station is on the website of trenitalia, you need to search among "All trains", otherwise the default trains showed are Freccia Rossa, typing Asciano (the website proposes Asciano-Monte Oliveto Maggiore, which is the main station of the village, and you need to delete Monte Oliveto Maggiore...I agree that the train website can be improved and propose directly this station, but of course I cannot decide). There are trains approximately every 2 hours to and from Siena and Chiusi, and more trains if you reach the village main station by car (1,5 km) and park there. What I can do is to print a sheet with the timetable and make it available at home, but of course this timetable changes during the year and the website is more reliable.
In the apartment there are two twins rooms, so you will find 4 single mattresses of the standard dimensions and good height.
There are more towels in the bathroom, and of course my mum, that welcomes the guests, can show them and provide them if more towels are needed.
We always ask our guests to let us know everything they need, and we try to do all what we can.
Spacious and cosy apartment in a quite location. Valeria's parents are really nice people and care very much about their guests comfort.
Highly recommended place to stay!
We stayed in this charming house to visit the Baths of St. John. Apartments are bright, cozy and comfortable. There are two quiet bedrooms, quite large living room and free hi speed wifi. We were 4 and flat was spacious for us. Also the apartment has a terrace where the evening is very nice dinner.
The house is situated in a calm and quiet place with tolerant neighbors. In the evening we took a walk in the city park, where there was a very nice local festival. Many thanks to Valerie and her mom, we will definitely come back next time!
Casa molto spaziosa e gradevole in una posizione veramente buona, ottima l'accoglienza e molto gentili i padroni di casa, posto raccomandato :-)
