Area Crete Senesi:
The Crete Senesi refers to an area of the Italian region of Tuscany to the south of Siena. It consists of a range of hills and woods among villages and includes the comuni of Asciano, Buonconvento, Monteroni d'Arbia, Rapolano Terme and San Giovanni d'Asso, all within the province of Siena.

Crete senesi are literally ‘Senese clays’, and the distinctive grey colouration of the soil gives the landscape an appearance often described as lunar. This characteristic clay, known as mattaione, represents the sediments of the Pliocene sea which covered the area between 2.5 and 4.5 million years ago. Nearby is also the semi-arid area known as the Accona Desert.

Perhaps the most notable edifice of this area is the monastery of Monte Oliveto Maggiore.

The region is known for its production of white truffles, and hosts a festival and a museum dedicated to the rare fungus (genus Tuber).

We are living in the same historic building.

  • Michele's recommendations for places to eat and to see were extremely helpful. It's a great place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle of Siena and Florence but just a short drive away, and the views of the Tuscan landscape from the property were incredible.

  • Michele was such an engaging host....he had a lot of "to do" info and was very knowledgable about places to visit and the local history. His apartment was perfect for my family. Very homey, plenty of light and spectacular views of the area....just as shown in the pictures. We were in a perfect location for our first visit to Tuscany....15 to 30 minutes from everything....markets, cities, restaurants, and wine regions. We are looking forward to returning to Le Splandole, possibly during the harvest.

  • We had an amazing time at Le Splandole. The location is fantastic (very close to Sienna and the little towns) and the apartment is very spacious and has everything you need. The surroundings of the Le Splandole are extremely beautiful, it's easy to take walks and explore the region. The view is breathtaking - a real taste of Tuscany. Michele was very helpful, friendly and provided us with good local tips.

  • Wir waren drei Tage in Micheles Wohnung.
    Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und es ist alles nötige vorhanden, hat viel Platz und ist wunderschön gelegen. Man ist schnell in Siena und bei anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Alles in allem war unser Aufenthalt sehr schön! Einzig für Ruhesuchende muss man wissen, dass es viele Kinder dort hat, die gerne bis spät Abends draussen spielen, was man sehr gut hört.
    Michele und seine Frau sind sehr hilfsbereit und haben uns extra noch eine Karte kopiert mit Sehenswertem in der Nähe.
    Wir können einen Aufenthalt bei Michele sehr empfehlen!

  • We've had a great time at Michele's house. Communication was always clear, he had amazing tips, also last minute restaurant recommendations through sms. The area is beautiful, like in the pictures, the house is new and very comfortable (good wifi and audio connection). The house is located close to a highway (far away to not hear anything, close enough to get around quickly).

  • Our stay (two adults) at Le Splandole was fantastic! The apartment was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. The location is a dream, with rolling hills of wheat, cypress trees and beautiful Tuscan views. It is close enough from Siena and even Florence (1.15hr) that made it a perfect place to visit the whole region. Beyond the apartment Michele has excellent communication, had great insight of the local area, and extremely accommodating. We can't say enough good things about the experience, and we hope to come back soon.

  • Michele was a great host. Before we came he sent useful information about the environment, things to do and so on. During our stay it was easy to reach him for questions which he quickly responded to.
    The house was beautiful; spacious, clean and well equiped (email hidden) setting. A place to recommend!
