Danielle's parents and Chiara were very nice, me and my girlfriend had a very pleasant stay.
Living with the Casciaro family for a month was ideal for me. The facilities were exactly as described and proved very comfortable for my extended stay. WiFi connection was fine.
The highlight was the degree to which the family made me welcome in the home and allowed me to 'fit in' to the daily routine. They also included me in a several social activities and treated me as a member of the family. I made some lasting friends in the Casciaro home.
There has been some comment about transport. The house is about ten minutes by bus from the centre of Siena. The bus stops at the Railway Station at about the halfway point. The bus stop is just a few metres from the house and buses operate every thirty minutes. Daniele's directions are accurate and easy to follow. I had no problems with transport
We had a great time at Daniele's house. His parents and sister are just delightful and will make you a lovely breakfast and give you lots of useful information to make the most of your time in Siena.
The only suggestion I would make is to maybe draw/print out a map of the best way to walk into town/walk back home from the centre. The buses stopped running very early (around 9pm) and walking the same way of the bus would take 40 mins.. not something you might want to do every night when on holiday. We took the taxi back every night which was fine, but would have been up for walking if we had known a shortcut.
Daniele has a nice family and they are helpful people. Roberto and his wife are very kind. Ask them for a cup of italian coffee at the breakfast. It is delicious. Also their house is comfortable and there is an independent entrance for the room. Have a nice holiday
What a wonderful family to stay with! If you have a chance to stay with them, you will be well pleased! I now have new friends in Siena.
Daniele does not live at the home, he is in Milan, but he was still able to answer all of our questions and help with our transportation issues and such.
His parents were very helpful as well. His dad cooked in the morning, very nice eggs, homemade jam and toast, proscioutto and sausage, and cafe. He was also extremely friendly which I really appreciated.
Daniele's sister Sara was home and very nice as well; we ran into here on the bus to and from Siena which was funny.
The apartment is a mile or so outside of the Siena walls, next to a small hotel which is well known and 50 steps from the bus stop, so that helped with directions. The room is up 2 flights of (website hidden) was a bit small but they gave us lots of privacy and let us use the refrigerator in the other room.The bathroom was very nice. There was wireless.
We were traveling by car so Don Roberto and his wife pointed out sites and restaurants in some of the Tuscan towns. They also gave us wine from their uncle from Montepulciano our first night which made us feel at home.
I would definitely recommend staying, though it is probably too small for more than 2 people.
We had a delightful time with the family, who were most welcoming and gracious. enjoyed the pets ( dog and cat ) as well. The family is warm and interesting. We enjoyed the area because it was quiet and a beautiful home and neighborhood
The room is located in the family's appartment. That's great for those who wants to have the opportunity to discuss with italians and learn more about the country / city.
It's comfortable and clean.
Our stay here was very enjoyable and comfortable. Great hospitality and a delicious breakfast every day. Would stay here again on our return to Siena.
Tutto era molto buono! Molto bella famiglia!
