Andrea was by far our most generous and thoughtful host in Italy. He provided a fridge stocked with water, juice and ice cream for our convenience, which was greatly appreciated! The apartment was lovely, and very centrally located.
Great apartment, great location, great host! Highly recommended! Thanks for the amazing stay Andrea!
Andrea was extremely helpful in the lead up to our stay. He met us at the front door to take us up to the apartment and to orientate us. The apartment was exactly as it looks; stylish, spotlessly clean and spacious. Andrea has thought of everything as the apartment is well equipped. The building is an old tower on the best shopping street in Siena, 100m from the Campo and 300m from the bus station. It is perfectly located to restaurants and bars. Even though it is central it is quiet. The bonus is, there is a lift which is rare in old buildings in Italy. There are spectacular views from the windows. We spent 5 nights there and will be back!
Summary: would absolutely stay here again. The apartment is lovely and super clean, is equipped with everything that you need for a comfortable stay, and is located in a very central part of Siena (less than 5 minutes from the campo). Andrea was very nice and helped us with finding parking for our car (saving us a lot of time and aggravation!). Perfect stay!
Andrea and Antonella were lovely hosts. Andrea sent me the whole bus schedule and directions to get to Siena. Antonella greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed.
This apartments is to die for. Beautiful, amazing views, updated but with classic touches. Also, the apartment is located on the main street in town. Very convenient walk from the bus station. Our favorite place in Tuscany. I would recommend Andrea, Antonella and this apartment completely!!
We had a wonderful stay at Andrea’s, his was the perfect Siena apartment for our vacation! Great location, wonderful amenities and minimalist, attractive decor. Andrea was terrific during the booking process and leading up to our stay. We would definitely stay here in the future and would recommend to our friends!
It was like living a fairy tale! Andrea was so welcoming! Seeing the view of the dome and bell tower of the church and the endless Tuscan landscape through the living room window rendered us speechless from the start. Even on our last morning as we gazed out listening to the birds we couldn't believe how incredible this place was. You come into the building from the bustling central location near Il Campo and a plethora of shopping, food, and gelato options, then a few floors up you are swept away to another world! This beautiful renovated apartment is quiet and has views for miles. Truly the very best of both worlds. Andrea met us at the front door, showed us to his gorgeous apartment and had provided drinks and snacks. He made our check-out very easy too. We also felt very lucky to find an afternoon meal with Pietro at Gino Cacino Di Angelo when he brought us the most delicious meat and cheese board with wines that were all locally sourced. We can't thank you enough for having this place on Airbnb - we are so glad we found it and hope very much to return someday!
