The space

This beautiful and sharply restored apartment is on the top floor of a historical palace of Siena, Palazzo Saracini, almost a thousand years old. The owners still live in the palace. From November 20th 2011 the old elevator has been completely changed and now it's brand new and perfectly working. The Palazzo Saracini main entrance opens in the heart of Siena, the “Via di Città” street. From there, all the tourist sites are at no more than five minutes walk: the Piazza Del Campo is just behind the palace, Palazzo Chigi-Saracini and the Duomo are almost around the corner, so you won't use car until you leave. During the days of the famous 'Palio' (the oldest horse race in the world, July 2nd and August 16th) it is possible to watch the race directly from a window of the family property or to have dinner in a 'contrada', to taste the unique atmosphere of these days. The morning of the Palio day is run the sixth trial, also called the 'Provaccia', preceded by the Mass for the jockeys, which is celebrated in the Piazza del Campo. In the afternoon, in the church of each contrada partecipating in the Palio, the benediction of the horse takes place. Following this, the 'Comparse' or contrada members dressed in the historical costumes of their contrada meet in the Prefettura (near the Cathedral) which is where the historical parade leaves from it to reach the Piazza del Campo. The historical parade is about 2 hours long. Is possible to see the historical parade from the streets and especially from the two windows of the apartment. Keep in mind that there are large crowds and the streets are very narrow, so it would be perfect to watch the parade directly from your apartment! Even in the noisy nights of Palio you will be able to sleep well, even if you are in such a strategic point in the city. Special new technology window glasses in all rooms allow you to enjoy a quiet rest avoiding all the noise.

This location is fabulous! Very hard to beat. While you do not have a view of Il Campo, you are right around the corner. The place is very clean, well stocked and beautiful. We were there on some very hot days and two of us found that the air conditioning in one of the rooms was probably was not strong enough for accommodating four people. We do feel that the bedroom stayed cool enough for sleeping. Christina is easy to work, kind and generous and accommodating. If you need parking be sure to set that up ahead of time as she has a discount parking pass she can offer you.

When we checked in, Christina moved us to a different room directly over looking the compo. The view was incredible and no doubt the nicest we will have in Italy. The apartment was very elegantly furnished and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and air-conditioning worked well despite the fact that temperatures were 95+ each day. We were able to leave the air conditioning off during the day and only run it when we were in the room and it was effective. As it was right next to the main square, The location was very central and we have great access to everything. We walked from the train station which was about 25 minutes. Christina's communication was very good and she was very responsive to our inquiries. The only issue we had with the room was that we heard a lot of noise from the square at night. As we were a family traveling with our 12-year-old child, we weren't looking for a lot of night life, but could be a lot of fun for others!

The best location! Comfortable but not for more than 2 people. AC a bit minimal. Needs a microwave.

Response from Cristina:
Thank you for your nice review. AC is perfectly working but was seated on heating. I already prepared detailed instructions for future guests. Unfortunately there is a real owen and a big big fridge with freezer and there's no space even for a microwave.

Great location and very close to the heart of Siena! Light noise at night but worth it for the convenience and comfortable stay. Cristina was great and easy to keep in touch with and flexible on check in and out times. Thanks again!

Super location in an apartment on the back of a one-time palazzo right on the Piazza del Campo---the epicenter of Siena.

Sono un medico, lavoro al pronto Soccorso di Siena.
Ho comprato sei anni fa l'appartamento per ingrandire la mia casa che gli è adiacente.
Ho creato due camere per i miei figli già grandi e un bilocale da affittare: Suite Saracini. L'ho chiamato così perchè il palazzo antico, quasi per intero di proprietà della mia famiglia si chiama Palazzo Saracini ed è uno dei più antichi palazzi che compongono l'anello di Piazza del Campo.
Mi piace accogliere personalmente gli ospiti e consigliare ristoranti e cose da fare.
Sei mesi fa io e Luca, il mio grande amore, abbiamo deciso di aprire un bed and breakfast. Abbiamo trovato due bellissimi appartamenti a 100 metri da casa nostra e abbiamo deciso di buttarci in quest'avventura.
Abbiamo ristrutturato tutto e creato sei bellissime camere con bagno.
La posizione e' unica perche' a due passi da Piazza del Campo ma immersa nel silenzio.
Il parcheggio di S Caterina e' a 50 metri e dietro alla struttura ci sono le scale mobili gratuite che portano dietro al Duomo in un attimo.
Abbiamo trascorso una settimana in Provenza alla ricerca di mobili, tessuti ed oggettistica ricercata.
Abbiamo cercato di ricreare quell'atmosfera elegante e minimalista che tanto ci piace anche a casa, con tutte le comodità che apprezziamo anche noi quando viaggiamo.
La realizzazione di questo sogno è stata un momento di grande felicità per noi.
Si chiama SienaVip ed e' la nostra gioia.
