Although we didn't meet Erika, her father and friend made us feel welcome, and recommended a local eaterie close by that got us straight into feeling like we were in Italy (and eating with Italians rather than other tourists). Erika left a good list of eating recommendations - we tried another one in Siena that was also excellent. The apartment is just as in the photos only the views are even better live. We took walks in the morning before breakfast to appreciate the lovely setting from all directions. I can't say enough about the fabulous location. Although you need a car to be based here, it is perfect for easy day touring around Tuscany in any direction.
Un'accoglienza calorosa, una casa e una posizione incantevole. Siamo stati veramente bene come a casa nostra. Un esperienza sicuramente da ripetere .
Our stay was perfect! Luca and Mauro carefully explained everything we needed to know upon checking in. So much care was put in to make it a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We really appreciate it. The location is great for exploring the countryside. From here we drove to Siena (about 20 mins) and San Querico and Pienza (about 1 hour or so). The apartment was so lovely and cozy and the view from it just amazing! It was a wonderful experience in the countryside. Thank you Erika, Luca and Mauro for everything :)
The house is located on a top of a hill south to Siena and offers an extraordinary view from the garden. It is nicely decorated and was spotless. It offers everything you need for your stay. It was exactly as described in the site and thanks to the little decorative items that were everywhere, was even nicer than we expected.
The location of the house is a perfect for star trips in the center and the south of Tuscany. We had day trips to Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, Voltera, and the Chianti area on the north, and Montepuliciano, Pienze, and Montalcino in the south, all of them up to 60-75 min. drive.
Erica and Luca are perfect hosts! From the first enquiry I made for the house, until the check-out process, we had excellent communication. They responded immediately and positively to our requests, and in a supportive and service oriented way. Thanks to their warm hospitality we had such a great vacation!
To summarize: Perfect hosts, very nice house and a great location. Highly recommended!
Erika and Luca were very kind and the house is beautiful. Everything was as described, or better. The views from the yard are stunning and we were very happy with our stay.
Wonderful apartment, extremely accommodating and kind host. Great stay across the board!

Hello, I'm Erika!!
I'm 28 years old and I usually live in Siena or in Florence.
I have a degree in Business Communication at Università degli Studi di Siena and a Master in Business, Publicity and Marketing at ilSole24Ore Business School.
I also love italian language, so I improved my skills in teaching italian language to foreign students: for this reason I lived 18 months between London and Barcellona.
At this moment I'm working at Università degli Studi di Siena Engeneering Library as front office manager and I'm trying to study Chinese language!
With my fiancee Luca, who is a medicine Phd student and comes from Naples, we are taking care about the lease of 3 apartments in Tuscany.
In particular, as you can see from announcements, one is in the city center of Florence, another in the city center of Siena and the last one is in Siena countryside, in the middle of Crete Senesi.
We love volleyball, books, photography, travelling and holidays, tropical beaches and seas, cruises, Teatro alla Scala, puzzle, Chanel, Hermes and fashion, Palio di Siena, Maldive, New York, California, Italy, Paris, Wien, Capo Verde, Barcellona, Ken Follett, Wilbur Smith, Agatha Christie, James Cameron, Titanic, Avatar, Samsung, Kate Winslet, italian language, Accademia della Crusca, Naples, Ischia, Capri and Positano, 883, Max Pezzali, Mozart, Verdi and all classical music, Metallica, Pink Floyd.
We love eat and food! Our favourite dishes are pizza, ice cream, pasta and Tuscan meat, sushi, indian food, chocolate.
Our maxim: Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.
We love rent our apartments and make our guests feel at home. This is the reason why we alway welcome our guests with a just baked handmade cake, BIO fruit juice (or champagne if they are on honeymoon) and lots of love! :)
We always prepare a dedicate tourist guide with informations about the best way from the apartment to a specific place, we give you a map, suggestion about cafè, restaurants, hairdresser, etc.
Into the apartments our guests will find some gifts that will make their Tuscan experience incredible and unforgettable....
Contact us!! We will really glad to hold you :)
