Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine dans le logement de Letizia. Le studio est pratique et spacieux (beaucoup de rangements). La terrasse avec une table pour manger offre une vue imprenable sur la campagne et les oliviers (attention aux moustiques le soir !). Letizia est une hôtesse très avenante et discrète.
Localisation intéressante pour multiplier les visites autour de Sienne (un GPS nous a été bien utile, même si les indications routières sont fréquentes). Pise et Florence peuvent être rejointes en train depuis la gare de Sienne (à 10 mn).
Mention spéciale pour Perla, la charmante chatte de la maison, qui saura vous accueillir avec beaucoup d’affection !
Eine wunderschöne Unterkunft! Vollkommen abgeschottet und super ruhig. Die Wohnung in dem traditionellen Toskana-Häuschen ist sehr liebevoll und traditionell eingerichtet. Die Ruhe vor Ort ist sehr angenehm. Die Zufahrt ist jedoch nicht für jedes Auto (website hidden). 1km durch den Wald über einen hügeligen Weg. Insgesamt war es eine tolle Zeit dort!
We had lovely stay in the Tuscany and in Letizia's apartment. Immersing in the countryside, the apartment offers peace and relax. The garden is wonderful, it's possible eating out to be delighted by olive trees and Siena's view. Indeed, Siena is far only few minutes by car. The car is essential to reach the apartment and discover the magnificences of Tuscany. Letizia lives beyond the renovated barn, but the two portions of the rural home are really well separated. Moreover, Letizia is a very descreet and polite person. Fully (website hidden): Letizia's cat is amazing and really lovely!
Letizia warmly welcomed us, ensured we were comfortable and helped us make difficult travel connections. The property a rural respite after the urban rigors of Paris & Padua. Car essential. The barn is rustic, spacious, quality linen and is decorated tastefully. We recommend this location and Letizia's professional, caring approach.
The ground floor apartment rented out by Letizia is every bit as attractive as it looks in the photo. Letizia was there to help on arrival, very friendly and very responsive on email/SMS in the booking process. Eating dinners (and breakfasts) outdoors on the patio overlooking the stunning Tuscan countryside was wonderful. It was very quiet, apart from the cicadas and other natural sounds, with a attractive lawn (which sprouted flowers after some rain) that the children loved. The children would have happily stayed there all day - they loved playing with the cat (although perhaps the cat didn't feel the same way). Siena was 7.5 km away - very easy - and Florence (about 45 km) just over an hour, once traffic and parking is built in. Showers, cooker, washing machine and other utilities worked very well. Having no Wifi was probably a good thing (for us at least). The house is at the end of a very long lane (1-2 km?) which can be quite easily missed from the road, so I recommend GPS or a careful review of the map beforehand. We had a great time and miss those sunsets. We fully recommend it.
We had lovely stay in Siena and welcomed the peace and quiet after hectic Rome! The apartment was cute and quiet and the garden area was secluded and peaceful. Letizia was very helpful and on hand to assist with enquiries when needed but also respected our privacy. A lovely place and would recommend for a quiet out of town stay in Siena.
a lovely house in the middle of the countryside. we had a great time! letizia was a wonderful host and very accomodating.
About the Host, Letizia
Venti anni fa sono andata a vivere in campagna e ancora oggi non saprei vivere altrove. Amo e rispetto l'ambiente, la tranquillità e la bellezza che ci offre. La Toscana è un territorio unico dalle mille sfaccettature, ed è sempre una sorpresa anche per me che ci abito.
L'appartamento che offro, nel fienile da me ristrutturato, è un'occasione di soggiorno diverso dal solito agriturismo dove turisti si mescolano ad altri turisti e molto meno con le persone del luogo, mentre è questo il modo migliore per conoscere il territorio che si vuole visitare.
Twenty years ago I moved to the Tuscan countryside and as of today I can say that I would not be able to live anywhere else. I love and respect the environment, and I am rewarded every day by the tranquility and the charm that comes with it. Tuscany is a multifaceted unique place, constantly offering surprises even to a native like me. The apartment I offer is located in the ground floor of a completely renovated barn. This particular arrangement offers an accommodation which allows the resident to avoid the usual crowds of tourists and favours a closer connections with the natives. I feel that this is the best way to get to know a new country.
