Andrea's apartment couldn't be in a better location in Sienna. The views from the windows are spectacular, and you can walk to any attraction you desire. The apartment was also extremely quiet, even though it is in the heart of Siena, due to the updated windows. All of the furniture and appliances are top notch.
Andrea was also a wonderful host, helping us with the area, meeting us at the apartment when we had issues, and was overall extremely helpful.
Impeccable flat with quality fixtures and attention to detail. Excellent email/sms communication with host. Ideal location, centrally located and a quick walk to the bus arrival/departure from Florence.
I particularly appreciated the blissful silence on nights when the adjacent streets were full of revelers. The outlook over the rooftops and Siena countryside is stunning, particularly at breakfast-time with rising mists off into the distance.
We loved our time in Siena and Andrea's apartment was perfect. It is comfortable, has great views and is in a great location. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Andrea met us on arrival and helped us with our luggage to the apartment. The kitchen had been lightly stocked with tea and coffee and crackers and juice. Such nice hospitality.
Thank you Andrea for your hospitality! We loved it and would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to friends.
The apartment was perfect, ideally situated within easy reach of shops, restaurants & Siena's attractions and had everything needed to make our stay comfortable as well as enjoyable. The views from the apartment were stunning and the interior as impressive.
Our host, Andrea was extremely helpful & accommodating - we hope to return one day.
My family and I were thrilled with our stay in Andrea's apartment. Every amenity was thoughtfully and attractively arranged. We were exceedingly comfortable with the accommodations. The apartment was quiet, peaceful and so conveniently located. The view from the living room and kitchen windows was unparalleled. Andrea was extremely helpful with all preplanning and arrangements and he was very accessible should we have needed any assistance. We would definitely recommend Andrea's apartment to anyone who is interested. And added plus for visitors who are interested in preparing their own meals is that the kitchen is very well-equipped and the stove is possibly the best one I've ever used. Thank you, Andrea for providing such a wonderful place for us to stay in Siena!
This was a beautiful apartment in a fantastic location. The bathrooms were modern, and there were quaint touches throughout the apartment. Andrea was responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and when we arrived. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better stay in Siena!
This was a truly wonderful apartment and Andrea was a lovely and generous host. We drove into Siena and Andrea both directed and assisted us with parking and our baggage on arrival. The apartment is located in the main street in Siena and had wonderful views over the roofs of Siena from the living room and kitchen. The bedrooms were well appointed with double/queen beds and general storage. The kitchen is modern with everything necessary to make us comfortable instantly. There was fresh fruit on arrival, tea, coffee, juice, milk, some washing powder etc. In short, it was perfect! Thank you Andrea!
