Our place is located just 10 minutes by car from Siena (highway) in the enchanting medieval village of TORRI. In the top of the hill that dominates the village is located the prehistoric installation (Neolithic) of SIENA VECCHIA from which our site takes his name. Afterwards this place gave hospitality to the Etruscan people, to the Celts and to the Gauls Senoni.

Claudio made us feel like family when we arrived! He is such a warm and genuine man. His place is extremely well kept and clean. The apartment feels very rustic and authentic, yet it has all the modern amenities that one would need on their vacation. We absolutely loved our stay here. It is situated right in the heart of the Medieval village of Torri, and is conveniently located very close to Siena's historic center (only about a 20 minute drive), and there is a great view of Siena from the backyard. Everyone we met in the village was also very warm and welcoming - we made friends on our first day there! Staying at Caludio's place was far better than any hotel we have stayed in - AMAZING! Ciao Claudio, spero che ci vediamo presto!
I travel a lot and Claudio's place was one of the best experiences I've had so far. It was really amazing - breathtaking view, nice design, the feeling of a living history combined with the modern day comfort.
Claudio was very welcoming, charming and helpful. I've never seen olive trees before, so I had a lot of questions about them for Claudio and he told me many interesting facts about these beautiful trees.
I hope one day I come back. Definitely recommend to everyone traveling through Tuscany.
Che dire di Claudio e della sua casa? Claudio è uma peraona gelentilissima e molto a (website hidden) ha addirittura aspettati fuori casa non so per quanto tempo prima che arrivassimo!!!!! Ci ha anche dato indicazioni perfette per andare a mangiare un'ottima fiorentina alla brace! La casa è un vero nido accogliente e molto pulito! C'è tutto quello che può farti sentire come a casa!!! Appena possibile ritorneremo in quel paradiso di casa!! Ciao Claudio! Grazie e BUON ANNO!!!!!!!!
Grazie veramente di cuore
Ci siamo sentiti a casa, la struttura e' bellissima, immersa in un borgo medievale stupendo. Il panorama dalla casa e' stupendo e la pace regna sovrana. Proprietari meravigliosi,
molto disponibili e sempre presenti per ogni esigenza. Grazie grazie e ancora grazie
Claudio was extremely welcoming and flexible about our arrival time. We started our stay with a tour of the vegetable garden and a visit to the chickens! The house is absolutely perfect: calm, clean and extremely well equipped. Claudio has very carefully thought of everything guests might need to be self sufficient and comfortable. We thoroughily enjoyed the house and the area is superb.
Claudio est très avenant et sympathique et il parle un français impeccable (très pratique quand on est un peu nuls en italien...)
Le petit appartement est plein de charme, décoré simplement mais avec soin, on s'y sent comme à la maison, à la campagne.
L'accès au potager est un bonus incroyable, c'est un bonheur de pouvoir déguster les produits du jardin et d'aller cueillir les herbes aromatiques.
La maison était très propre et fidèle aux photos. Une petite documentation " maison" est à disposition des invités, avec des conseils sur les visites et les randonnées mais aussi sur ce qu'il y a à faire dans les environs, c'est toujours appréciable.
Le village est très joli et l'accès à Sienne est direct.
Nous avons passé deux jours seulement mais aurions pu rester une semaine entière. Merci pour votre bonne humeur!
We spent a wonderful week at Claudio's place. The apartment was clean, well equipped and located in stunning surrounding. I would reccommend anyone!
