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
The location of the cottage is great, just a few steps away from the amazing sights of Siena. We met the parents of the host who were very nice and easy to reach since they live next door. In the house we found everything we needed and the garden is just beautiful!
The accomondation is absolutely recommendable.
Just one hint: You shoudn't be sensitive to noise. The house is in the middle of the town so at night it can be quiet loud from parties and concerts around. But if you don't mind it's wonderful to stay there.
The cottage is beautiful and very well-equipped. It's very spacious and has everything you could need. It feels as though you're in the countryside even though it is less than a 5 minute walk to the Piazza del Campo. Mariele is really kind and very helpful. I loved staying here and would recommend it to anyone.
The cottage was more spacious and views were even better than shown in pictures. Totally unexpected as we drove through the town and arrived at the lovely grounds. Very clean, everything we needed. Location was perfect for walking everywhere. Taxi from train station to cottage was only 11Euro. Walk back to station was a bit long and confusing. Beware, our initial taxi and a driver we had for a day, both had a difficult time finding the address. Not a big deal but I wish I had better directions to give them. Of our 3 Airbnb stays this trip, this was our favorite.
We loved our time in the cottage in Siena. The facilities were just as listed in the advertisement, and the garden surroundings ensured a very quiet environment, and yet within less than a five minute walk you were in the campo. It was a pleasure to wake each morning to the views of the bascilica of St Dominic, and the open green space around the cottage.
While we never met our hosts, Bernadino and Francesco,their parents were our "neighbours", next door to the cottage, and were available to us for our month long stay. Their sharing of their knowledge of the city gave us an insight into the history and culture, which we greatly appreciated.
Siena is a wonderful city to explore, and the highlights of Tuscany are close by, and having such a comfortable place to live for the month was great. We can only recommend the cottage most highly, and thank Mariele and Guido for their welcome and hospitality.
Bernardino and Francesca were approachable and available to discuss check in arrangements, the place was exactly as it was described, more over, it actually was beyond the described: The view from the little terrace was really amazing, the whole place was tasteful and immaculate, we had everything we need in the equipped kitchenette. it was just perfect for our long weekend. It really felt like home, the front garden felt like entering a dreamy oasis in Siena. It is really a very special spot, perfect for a couple or two friends travelling together. I couldn't recommend it more!
This was our second trip to this "Amazing Cottage", and it is beginning to feel like home! A perfect location for visiting in Siena and the Tuscany area. The hosts are wonderful. Take the private tour that is offered, money well spent. Until next time...
