Stefania è una persona squisita... Si è dimostrata disponibile per qualsiasi nostra esigenza... Presente ma discreta!!! La sera prima della nostra partenza ci ha perfino fatto un omaggio... La vicina di casa ideale! L'appartamento è situato in aperta campagna, il panorama è degno delle migliori cartoline... Spazioso e comodo, vicino alle maggiori città turistiche della zona. Siamo stati benissimo... Ed anche Nala ha gradito! Torneremo sicuramente... Magari in primavera, che credo sia la stagione migliore!!!
This is a very nice and wide apartment, also well located. We had very good explanations from Stéfania when we arrived and her mother was a very kind and helpful hostess during our stay, giving us some advices and welcoming us with a homemade cake and a good bottle of wine (very good). Thank you so much for everything. We really enjoyed our stay there, except for one thing - we heard lots of dogs barking all night long, not very confortable for good sleeping.
A great appartement, clean and wide, with all the confort we need. Very well located, near from Val d'Orcia, Montalcino, San Gimignano and Siena.
The host Stefania is really nice, little gifts was expecting us. Thanks for everything !
It's was very pleasant time we spent in Toscana in the Stefanie house. To find it was not very dificult, description given on site is clear, in reaslity just look for sign on the left sife of road that you has just passed Buonconvento. Right before this signed turn on the left up to the hill.
Stefaine and her mather were waiting for us, they welcomed us with home made marmelade and cake.
Stefanie gave us some advice about region and direction where go to: wine buying, restaurnts, sightseeing....
Place is not 5* hotel but it's so cozy, clean, hommy...It's completelly separate part of house from owner, well equiped (kitchen, shower, washing machine), your own yard and amazing view from hill to the city down.
And what an evening you will have there!! What a sky!!!
I would reccommend this place to stay.
We are arrived in the late afternoon because of traffic jam, then we didn't meet each other but she was all the time ready by phone for any kind of explenations, the house was very clean and nice!! much better than we have seen on the pictures.
she was very kind, helpfull, friendly and she gift us many local tips about what to visit around that bautiful land.
La casa dista pochissimo dal centro di Buonconvento e vi si accede lungo un incantevole viottolo sterrato cinto da cipressi. Dalla casa situata sopra una collina si ha una splendida vista sul borgo di Buonconvento, e all'orizzonte si intravede la città di Siena. Il luogo è ideale per scoprire Siena e la sua provincia: a due passi ci sono Montalcino e la Val d'Orcia, patrimonio dell'UNESCO, e neanche Pienza e Montepulciano sono lontane... Stefania e sua medre poi sono delle ospiti deliziose! Dal primo momento ti fanno sentire come a casa. Dirò solo che al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato una crostata alle prugne deliziosa! Un soggiorno nella casa sulla Via Francigena di certo non deluderà chi ci andrà dopo di noi: l'appartamento è pulitissimo, il letto confortevole, la cucina ampia, e il bagno è munito anche d'una lavatrice. Solo chi avesse paura dei cani sappia che c'è un cane da guardia, peralto coccolone...
Lovely apartment with everything you need and beautiful views! Hosts extremely helpful and very friendly. This place would top my list apart from one thing - we heard dogs barking all night long - not just one dog but a lot - I think there was a dog refuge nearby.
