Other Things to Note
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 all really enjoyed our stay at Michele´s appartment with it´s beautifully surrounding area. A good place for cycling tours in Toskany. Michele provided us with a lot of maps,materials and gave us good tipps. Thank you, and all the best!
We were 4 to stay 2 nights at Le Splandole. We were welcomed by Michele in a warm way with also some very nice products from the region. He gave us excellent directions for restaurants in the area. The appartment is very comfortable. We enjoyed the wonderfull views of the countryside. At Le Splandole you can really enjoy the Tuscan way of living, we do regret not have spend some more nights at Michele's house and will definitely come back another time!
Hemos estado alquilando propiedades por AirBnB y por HomeStay durante anos en 3 continentes. Nunca hemos tenuido una acogida como esta, tan amable y tan facil, ni un lugar tan particularmente maravilloso con el de Michele. Entre 10 kms y 150 se puede visitar Siena, Chianti, San Gimignano, Florencia, Perugia, y Asis. Pero lo mejor, las vistas de las cretas sienesas, una orografia unica, desde las ventanas de la casa. Las recordare durante mucho tiempo.
Michele fue un muy buen anfitrión. La casa estaba en impecables condiciones. Todo estaba tal cual estaba detallado en la publicación. el lugar era increíble, en plena Crete Senesi. Todas las vistas desde la casa era muy bellas.
la casa estaba muy bien equipada, más que nada en lo que respecta a la cocina
nos sentimos como en casa
Michele has a has a clean, well maintained, beautiful place that was extremely comfortable for my wife and I and our 2 children. Michele was so helpful with recommendations and directions for restaurants and places to visit. He welcomed us with wine and snacks. It was the perfect place to stay for our Tuscany visit. I would strongly recommend staying with Michele if you're visiting the Tuscany area.
Our stay at Le Splandole was perfect in every way. Michele was a generous and thoughtful host, sending driving directions in advance, along with very helpful recommendations, and he even welcomed us the night we arrived. I cannot thank Michele enough for his hospitality, and I will recommend Le Splandole to anyone looking for a quiet home-base in Tuscany.
This was our very first AIR BNB experience and our breath was simply taken away as we drive up the road (thinking this cannot possibly be it!!!) but to our surprise it was and how we enjoyed it .. We were so welcomed by Michele as everyone else has mentioned he provides any information you need to make your stay a memorable one - the views from each window are something you'd see in a beautiful movie ! Thank you Michele we loved the villa
