We had a wonderful stay at the apartment. Erika keeps the place in perfect condition and it was very welcoming. It is a great location - not far from Siena but also easy to access other towns in Tuscany. The highlight of the apartment is the view. We enjoyed the patio overlooking the hills of Tuscany and Siena off in the distance. We would highly recommend and hope to stay here again!
La maison d'Érika est située dans un lieu enchanteur où tous les touristes s'arrêtent pour en immortaliser la beauté.
Les pièces sont spacieuses et une mention spéciale pour la propreté des lieux.
La terrasse est définitivement notre coup de coeur, tant pour son emplacement que pour l'aménagement paysager.
Nous y avons passé une semaine qui nous a ravie.
The pictures can't show how beautiful the view from the house is... So perfect! Erika is very kind and made us feel like home.
Erika's house is situated atop a small hill and is surrounded by pristine landscapes. The patio and private garden are just as in pictures, and make the sunset watching experience even better! We could not meet Erika in person as we had to advance our arrival time last minute. But she was very accommodating and was able to arrange for check in by having her father assist us. He was such a sweet man! Erika left detailed welcome kits with instructions for everything one might need. We had great orange juice and home made treats waiting for us. Siena is a beautiful town and the piazza del campo is worth spending an evening.
Since Erika lives in the house when no one is renting, the house had a lot of personal items everywhere, and we noticed Erika is well travelled and a has great taste in interior design. If I had to nitpick - I found it hard to find dustbins, spare toilet paper and cleaning liquid for the dishes. But everything else was great. Infact, we needed a taxi one evening and texted Erika for a recommendation and her response was prompt.
Through a beautiful driveway we arrived at the residence of Erika . We were warmly welcomed and given an explanation about the house. The house has many amenities and features a garden with a beautiful view with Siena in the distance. Erika has compiled a folder for guests with lots of tips on restaurants and attractions, which we have gratefully made use of. We enjoyed our stay and recommend it if you want to stay in the beautiful Tuscan hills.
Erika did a great job of welcoming us and allowing us to use her home as if it was our home. Erika's explanation of her home was thorough and appreciated. She gave us full reign creating a very welcoming and warm atmosphere. During the week Erika also contacted us to make sure that we had everything we needed. Her home is lovely! We were very appreciative that we had a car given her home was in the country. Her description and pictures were very accurate and gave your a very good idea about where you were staying, although being there is so much better. We can't say enough good things her home was delightful and she was divine.

About the Host, Erika
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....
