  • Great place! Super location, well organized home. Wonderful Hostess! She left us a list of local restaurants that was quite helpful.

  • Marzia was incredibly accommodating and her apartment was absolutely perfect! Due to train delays from Rome we showed up to meet her later than our agreed upon time, and she still graciously accommodated us. She even made us a homemade dessert! She also left us a map with some key locations marked on it, a list of things to do in Tuscany, and a list of recommended restaurants. Aside from the one night out of five that we cooked ourselves, we only ate at the restaurants she noted, and they were all fantastic! There is nothing like getting a true insider's view of the city you are staying in. The apartment was magnificent. It had everything we could have asked for - hair dryer, washer, soap, towels, kitchen utensils, spices, everything! The location is also perfect. It's a quick walk to the bus station, and a quick walk in the opposite direction to Piazza del Campo. If/when we come back to Siena, without hesitation we would stay here again and advise everyone else to do the same!

  • Marzia was zeer vriendelijk. Ook nadat wij haar door omstandigheden met onze huurwagen een uur hadden moeten laten wachten.
    Ze had heel wat informatie voor ons klaargelegd: een lijst met goede adresjes van restaurantjes en winkels. Een lijst met tips om te bezoeken in Siena en omgeving. Een zeer handig plannetje van de stad en de omgeving. Ze had ons voordien ook gemaild met instructies om te parkeren.
    Bovendien... ze had die dag gebakken en er stond een groot stuk aardbeiencake voor ons klaar dat erg smaakte na alle obstructies van die dag.
    Het appartement is ideaal gelegen in het centrum van de stad. Het was er erg netjes en voorzien van alles (wasmachine, oven, veel keukengerief, etc...). Kortom: een zeer goed adresje!!

  • We stayed for 5 nights and found the apartment perfect for what we wanted, close to all the central attractions, everything in the apartment for eating, drinking, washing. Hot water and heating fine; we stayed in January and had some cold and wet days, and a couple of perfect winter days. Marzia's recommendations for places to eat were great.

  • Marzia is a very nice host, she welcomed us on arrival and gave us advice on places to visit. We enjoyed our stay at this apartment, everything was perfect, a cozy apartment at an excellent location. We recommend it and would stay there again for sure when we visit Siena in the future.

  • A lovely, cosy flat in a wonderful location! Marzia left lots of useful information about Siena and Tuscany, checked up on us in case we needed anything and spoilt us with chocolates and local biscuits:) It felt like a real home away from home for my little girl and I.

  • Marzia was a very welcoming host; she had arranged for a land line, checked on us during our stay and even had a delicious fruit bread for us. The apartment is in a perfect location for walking all over Siena, which is quite hilly so be warned! It is large and bright with all that you need for self-catering, including a washing machine and drying racks and clothes-line. The bed was comfortable and the view from the bedroom was stunning. We were very satisfied with our stay. Grazie, Marzia!

  • We absolutely loved our stay in Marzias apartment. Right in the centre of Siena she was so nice and welcoming and even gave us some cookies on arrival and showed us around!

    Beautiful and big apartment with great cooking facilities!

    One of the best places we have stayed in the whole of Europe!

    Thanks so much!

  • Marzia's apartment is minutes from all of the important sites in Siena and right in the middle of one of the most important Contrade. She was very helpful when we arrived and even helped us arrange for taxicabs when we were leaving.
    The apartment is well appointed and easy to enjoy. I hope to spend another vacation there some day. No elevator but only two easy flights of stairs up. We did a day trip to San Gimignano by bus. The bus station is less than 10 minutes away from the apartment. Marzia always has a smile no matter what problem you bring to her and she can usually solve all of them! She speaks beautiful English and we were able to contact her using the telephone in the apartment when necessary.

  • Marzia's apartment is perfectly located and very comfortable. It was exactly what we were looking for and we enjoyed our stay very much. Unfortunately, I had no opportunity to meet Marzia personally but we had a very kind e-mail conversation and she was always very friendly and helpful. I can recommend her apartment in all respects.
