About this listing
We are renting for small and long periods an amazing beautiful cottage in the very center of Siena, walking distance of 100 meters from the cathedral and Campo's square, sourraunded by a beautiful garden with a great view of San Domenico's church.
My mother, a very expert licensed guide of Siena and its province, graduated in art history, is available for guided tours! the fee is 70 $ for hour.
For the lovers of the countryside we are also renting a beautiful appartment in Montalcino in via Lapini, in the middle of the best winemaking area of Italy!
The address is vicolo Vallepiatta 12 that is a narrow street just under via Vallepiatta on the corner with via del Costone
Amazing location right at the heart of Sienna surrounded by a lovely garden with a great view too! Despite the great location, the flat was very calm and quiet. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook at home in the evenings (and there is a small but very good supermarket on the Piazza del Campo, only 10 minutes' walk away). Overall, a fantastic place to stay. A cautionary note, however, for those arriving by car. The car park is about 150m walk from a series of escalators which take you up into Sienna (right next to the apartment). If heavily laden, it could be a bit of a slog. Also, the parking costs about 2€ per hour capped at 35€ per day. There is a free car park opposite, but it is very small (we were fortunate enough to get a spot for our four night stay - the parking Gods were smiling!) Thanks to Francesca for a great stay!
Beautiful apartment in the heart of Siena with the most amazing view from the secluded garden. Exactly as described and seen in the pics. Would definitely love to return here again. And thanks to Bernadino and his parents for helping us settle in, and sharing their special home with us.
Fantastic accommodation in the centre of Siena. Comfortable, simple furnishings and central location make this a great place to use as a base to explore the city.
It was an excellent experience to stay in the cottage in Siena. It felt like an oasis in the heart of a city. We enjoyed breakfast and lunch on the little patio with a gorgeous view. Palio was happening during our stay so the town was very busy, in an exciting way. The dinners at the church were loud but fun to listen to the singing that ended around midnight. The only downsides were no AC, but we managed fine with 2 fans, and I had trouble regulating the shower temperature. The hosts were very friendly and their garden was wonderful to see. We highly recommend it!
A fantastic apartment, airy and spacious with a breathtaking view. Centrally located and a short walk to many of the sights of Siena. Friendly, welcoming hosts who made our stay special. We were even given a welcome pack of lovely Sienese cookies, which were delicious! We were often greeted by the pet tortoise in the garden, who was very cute. Would highly recommend staying here and would definitely return.
We had a great stay at this cottage in Sienna. All comunications were promptly answered and arrival procedures were clear.
The cottage was a delight- modern, tastefully decorated and surrounded by a lovely garden. The small terrace was a good place to start and end the day and enjoy the lovely view.
Our thanks to Bernadino and Francesca's parents who were charming and courteous hosts.
We highly recommend this property.
