About this listing
La coloratissima camera con pareti in veri mattoni a vista stile loft newyorkese può comodamente ospitare 2 persone e dispone di bagno a vostro uso esclusivo. A piedi in 10 minuti si raggiungono centro storico e stazione dei treni.
The flat is 10 minutes walking from city center, northern entrance, 5 minutes from the railway station escalator, on the main street to the city center.
If you don't feel like walking the bus stop is just in front of the house, there are many buses to city centre, average "journey" time 10 minutes.
Your room is equipped with a French bed (145 cm x 200 cm), sorry but there are no other sleeping surfaces available.
You'll have a private bathroom, you will be sharing kitchen and living room with me and Chiara.
I work almost 7/7 days but if I'm home I'll cook for you, I'm a great chef, well... at least this is what people use to say...we'd love to share experiences with U.
Next door and just crossing the road there are 2 supermarkets, there you can find whatever you need for your stay in Siena; the area is quite busy during the day and safe night and day like the entire city.
Please note that I'll be able to manage reservations maximum 3 months ahead.
If you like music and colors come over and feel free to add yours !!!

We absolutely loved staying here. Francesco and Chiara were so welcoming and made us feel incredibly comfortable. We came at the time of the Palio and they taught us all about it and gave us loads of tips about how to see it and what to do etc. On our second night they even took us with them to see the trial and took us for cocktails which was far beyond the call of duty. Their home is lowered into the ground so air con is not needed and the room was always a very nice temperature. We got our own private bathroom and were given space in the fridge and access to their kitchen to cook for ourselves. They even let us do a load of washing in their machine! All in all, it really felt like we were their friends staying over rather than just guests renting a room and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Francesco and Chiara are wonderful hosts. It was a pleasure to stay at their place. The apartment is exactly as described, the room is spacious with a comfy bed and there is a nice private bathroom next to it, everything was spotlessly clean. The apartment is very close to the railway station. You can easily explore Siena by foot from the apartment. I highly recommend their place and would definitely stay again.
Very cool and comfortable apartment. And communication was excellent. Both couples speaks english fluently and apt itself cool inside no needed AC. Lovely Couples who will give you all informations you need.
i will stay again next time when i go to Siena.
Une superbe adresse à Sienne ! Chiara et Francesco sont très accueillants, flexibles et généreux. L'appartement très bien décoré est proche du centre historique et de la gare. De plus, une salle de bain privée est réservée aux voyageurs. Je recommande tout particulièrement cette adresse.
A perfect stay! Francesco and Chiara are wonderful hosts and will feel you like being home. The rooms are beautiful decorated and a private bathroom was inlcuded.
The place is a bit outside of the inner city but by foot you are in 10 to 15 minutes in the city center.
The room is in the lowest section of the building so you dont have a direct sun - but as we spent the day outside it was of no concern for me.
Overall my best stay in AirBnB and a big thanks to Francesco and Chiara (also for the homemade Pizza and the Red Wine ;-)
This was one of, if not the BEST airbnb we've stayed in. The hosts were incredibly friendly, they spoke English very well and were able to direct us to anything we needed including maps restaurants advice etc.
The apartment is one of the coolest places you can stay in, it is filled with really interesting art music and travel messages and previous trips. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone near the region. 11/10!
Die Unterkunft liegt angenehm etwas außerhalb des touristischen Kerns in einer ruhigen Wohngegend und ist vom Bahnhof schnell zu erreichen. Zu Fuß ist man in 20 Minuten im Mittelpunkt des Geschehens (Piazza del Campo). Wir trafen nur Chiara zum Check-In und am letzten Abend, weil zufällig sie und Francesco während unseres Aufenthaltes in Siena auswärts arbeiteten, aber die Organisation und der Kontakt waren völlig unproblematisch. Das Zimmer bietet viel Stauraum, im Bett schläft man sehr gut. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Das Haus steht am Hang, die Wohnung liegt zur Straße hin im Kellergeschoss und hat wenig direktes Licht, ist außerdem ein wenig kühl - im Sommer sehr angenehm (in kühleren Jahreszeiten hat man selbstständig Zugang zur Heizung). Wir bekamen eine Karte und weitere Informationen; am besten waren die Restaurant-Tipps. Wir kommen auf unserer nächsten Reise gerne wieder und hoffen, dass wir dann mehr Zeit zum Essen und Unterhalten mit Francesco und Chiara haben.
About the Host, Francesco E Chiara
Traveling : "Soulfood isn't it?"
The main objective is looking for time to do it, and do it right.
I'm a good listener, everyone has a story, come on and tell me yours.
I like music, almost everything, if I'm home cd player/turn table is on and volume is loud, well not loud as I'd like but it works.
Feel free to bring your music and put your records on !!!
I work in a Pharma company, but I've been in tourism business many years; Chiara is working in a "agriturismo" on the Chianti hills.
We will be more then happy to guide you through best places around Siena, and bars and restaurants in town. No one like locals can give you the best suggestions.
Another big objective is take the most from my daily 24 hours and I think I'm on my way.
Hablo español tambien, pero necesito practicarlo, casi se me olvida, vamos compañeros!!!
Ma copine parle même le français!
