If you are staying in Siena and would also like to visit the marvelous surrounding places, this charming flat is the best base point for you: in the heart of the historic centre and, at the same time, 80 meters from the main bus stop for trips to/from Florence and Rome. The apartment is in a noble ancient building, along the main street of Siena and the Via Francigena route inside the medieval walls of the town. Free parking is 400m away. Use of A/C, internet wi-fi and washing machine included.

The space

A fully furnished apartment on the first floor (second floor, for American guests) in a historical noble building in Via dei Montanini, pedestrian area in the historic centre of Siena.

The location:

The building is of historical interest and has been recently restored, as the apartment. Situated right behind Piazza Gramsci, main bus stop for any urban and extra urban travels you wish to do during your stay.

A pleasant walk through the main shopping area of Siena (Via dei Montanini and Via Banchi di Sopra) will lead you to Piazza del Campo and the Duomo (Cathedral) in about 10 minutes.

The train station is easily reachable with buses from Piazza Gramsci or Piazza del Sale, or walking, 15 mins. You will be able to see more detailed info on how to reach the apartment once you have booked, on your booking details page.
There is a Taxi Station 200 m from the apt, Piazza Matteotti.
The apartment is 1 min walking from La Lizza and La Fortezza, two beautiful public gardens where you can have nice walks with a stunning view over Siena and the surrounding hills.

Via dei Montanini is a central pedestrian street (only residents are allowed to get in there by car) so there are many shops, bars, grocers and a supermarket nearby. The neighbourhood is very quiet and inhabitated mostly by families.

The apartment:

Loft type apartment with one bedroom, comfortable dining room, a bathroom and a brand new, fully equipped and functional kitchenette with induction hob. It also has a small balcony with a washing machine. A/C is available.

Hairdryer, american coffee machine, boiler, toaster, microwave oven, iron and ironing board are provided.

There are 2 single beds in the bedroom (the loft area), and a 1,20 m large sofa bed in the living room for a third person. The single beds upstairs can be pushed together with bigger linens and blankets to make a double bed.

Smoking is forbidden.

We have a Kawai digital piano for our musicians guests.

Other info:

Minimum stay is 2 nights and the weekly price is 550€. Discounts are applied to >7 days stays.

Check in is from 2pm to 8 pm and check out is by 11 am.

Airbnb will block a security deposit of 200€ on your credit card or bank account, and will "unblock" it 48 hours after your check out if we do not find any damage in the apartment – we would obviously keep only the necessary amount to fix the damage, not the entire security deposit.

The apartment is entirely reserved for the guests, I won't live there during your stay, but I'll always be easily reachable by phone, messages, e-mails, airbnb etc...

RULES OF THE APARTMENT
- Check in between 2pm and 8pm, check out by 11am.
- Please read carefully the indications to get here that you'll be able to see on your booking details page after you have booked. We won't be responsible for any ticket you might receive for entering limited traffic zones or parking in forbidden spots.
- Please remember to switch the lights off when you go out and don't set the A/C below 22 °C. We have often seen that some guests put A/C at 18° C and then put additional blankets on the beds in the summer - which is completely nonsense! We all have to save energy.
- Animals are not allowed in the apartment.
- Guests will throw the rubbish and do the dishes before leaving.
- Smoking is forbidden.
- Because of previous bad experiences, we reserve ourselves the possibility to charge an extra (from the security deposit) if towels and sheets are found with stains that don't come off or if the apartment is left very dirty and these rules have not been followed.

Interaction with guests

I won't always be able to meet you on check in or check out, but my mother, Aida, will be glad to welcome you and show you the apartment; I'll always be easily reachable by phone, messages, e-mails, airbnb etc... Or you can just ring our bell, we live in the same building, so if we are home we will be glad to help you right away!

Lyza and her mom Aida have been very helpful and easy to communicate. They answer my questions throughout my whole stay promptly and thoroughly. The little complimentary bottle of wine is so tasty!

We had a wonderful time at Lyza's place. Everything was as descripted and even better ! The apartment is spacious with enough room to welcome 3 girls with big lugages. Aida (Lyza's mom) welcomed us and game us 2 sets of keys. She gave us directions on where to go, what to see and was very kind to us. We were in Siena during the Palio and the atmosphere was unbelivable. The apartment is central, we were close to any commodity. It's a 5 minutes walk from the FREE parking lot were we parked (Lyza gave us the directions). A pretty perfect stay in a wonderful town. Thank you again, Regards, Sophie, Marion & Elise. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Lyza. L'appartement est conforme à la description, même mieux ! Il est spacieux, nous ne sentions pas à l'étroit malgré nos gros bagages. La maman de Lyza nous a accueilli et nous a fourni 2 jeux de clés. Elle a pris le temps de nous expliquer quoi visiter à Sienne, où nous trouverions un supermarché etc... Nous étions à Sienne pendant le Palio et l'ambiance était incroyable. Nous étions à 5min du parking gratuit où nous avions laissé notre voiture, un confort à cette période de l'année. Un super séjour dans une ville à couper le souffle. Merci encore de nous avoir accueilli. Amitiés, Sophie, Marion & Elise

Excellent location. Very clean and well equipped apartment. Kitchen and bathroom are down longish corridor but are excellent. Bedroom up small flight of wooden steps which is away from bathroom. This is not a problem for most but might be considered by some as being awkward. Overall an excellent place to stay.

The apartment is spacious and really provides everything you need. Even though it was the Palio weekend, it was quiet and we slept well. Very central and you can explore the old town by foot. Lyza provided information on Sienna, the nearest supermarkets, restaurant suggestions etc. To round it off, we even received Limoncino made by Aida herself, a bottle of wine, mineral water, biscuits, coffee and tea. I will certainly stay at Lyza E Aida's place again.
