The old farmhouse, “ Podere San Felice”, is located in “Val di Merse” plain where in summer sunflowers and wheat grow. This plain is surrounded by the “Montagnola” rolling hills where there are dense oaks and chestnut forests. To discover more about “Montagnola” you could visit the Ethnographic Museum in “Orgia”, lovely little village very close to the Capannina. This museum tells the relationship between the forests and the man, describing old trades such as the charcoal-burner and the wood cutter. In this museum you can find all the information about ancient paths marked by the traces of traditional rural life.
Visiting the “Sovicille” website you can find all the information about the local actractions and you can download trail maps.
Our area is rich in very ancient churches (evendated before 1000 a.c.) as “Ponte allo Spino”, “San Giusto in Balli”, “Pernin” etc, and many castles such as “Montarrenti”, “Palazzaccio”, “Stigliano”, “Capraia”, “Palazzo al Piano”, etc.
This land is also rich in Etruscan and Roman settlements. I suggest visiting the old village of Torri, where in the abbey there is a rare polychrome three floor Romanesque cloister.
I also suggest going along the part of the river that runs from Rosia to Montarrenti in order to see the most actractive land mark of this zone: the “Ponte della Pia”. The legend tells that “Pia de’ Tolomei” passed through this bridge (built in the early Medioevo) going exile to “Maremma” where she was murdered. This event was described by Dante Alighieri in his main opera: “La Divina Commedia”.
Among the actractive beauties there are the seventeent-century Cetinale Palace and the eighteenth-century Villa Linari Palace.
My guests have access to the garden with hammocks, the beautiful flowers and trees; solarium with deck chairs and outdoor shower; the shed with table, benches and chairs for dining al fresco and enjoy the silence of nature; the barbeque to cook meat or grilled vegetables; the outdoor seating under the large umbrella and chairs, bench and coffee table in wood; montaine two bikes for excursions.
Interaction with Guests
Every day at the end of the day I'm glad to know if everything is okay and how was their day.
It 'a flat area surrounded by the Tuscan partner with fields of sunflowers in summer. It lends itself to long walks in mountain-bikes or walking on foot. Surrounded by hills and Sienese mountains, where to find refreshment in the summer immersed in the cool of the woods.
The house is 3 km away from public transport, in the nearby village of San Rocco a Pilli, connected to the city of Siena, where he arrived after 15 minutes. A 4-6 km you will find pretty villages such as Towers, Stigliano, Orgy. A 5 km you can bathe in the river Merse, 20 km bathe in the thermal waters of Petriolo, 15 km swim in the pool of Casciano di Murlo. Turning in the woods meet historic abbeys and churches.
When you arrivals is best if parking space in the left side of the pool. You can go any smoke in the garden where the ashtray is prepared, but not at home, where there are tents and wooden floors. In the house you can find the air conditioner, which you can use, but making sure to turn it on for the hours needed, for example when you come back for 3-4 hours, but the night is not necessary, because if you leave the door and window open a little enters fresh air. The washing machine must be turned on in the evening after 21 hours. Use of washing machine and air conditioner have these rules for energy saving. When you go to bed tch do not leave lights on even external ones. The basic rule is relax and enjoy your Holiday.

An extraordinary , new apartment , cheerfully decorated , with access to garden, in a very quiet place , 15 minutes from Siena. Morena and his family are very friendly and kind. The positive experience and definitely repeat !
SO PEACEFUL! Morena is a wonderful host! I loved staying at her perfectly picturesque Tuscan home, which looks exactly like the pictures! Her & her son, David, welcomed me with open arms. They kindly showed me how everything worked & helped me get settled, even had the AC on ahead of time. :-) It's a quaint drive from Siena so I rented a car that she had great parking for. I believe you can take a bus from Siena to San Rocco a pilli but it would still be quite a walk from there to the house, around 20-30 minutes. Wifi was spotty in the house but worked great outside. Also met Morena's two beautiful daughters both of which were very kind, one even helped me get a little tiny lizard out of the room. This is classic Tuscan countryside so be prepared for a few innocent bugs & little lizards. I had a wonderful time & would recommend this stay to anyone. If I am in Toscana again I will definitely be back!! Molto Grazie Morena e la tua famiglia!
Morena’s little house is really beautiful and very cozy. For two people it is just right. There is everything you need - and the best part is the outside area with the large wooden table; spent a lot of time outside enjoying the evenings.
The location is perfect, as you are quickly in Siena or can start nice day trips throughout the Campania Sienese with all its little historic villages and churches. Morena and her family were very nice and pleasant hosts and had some very nice suggestions for us on what to do and were to go. I would recommend this accommodation to my friends.
I wouldn't stay here again, even though the location is lovely. There is no wifi. I was told on arrival that. No only did it not work, but I had to either go in to the toilet or outside and it would work. Neither worked. I needed to use it but had no luck. It should have been advertised as no Wifi. The flat is very cold and I am not exaggerating. It is freezing and I tried everything to adjust the heart control. The hostess was lovely but spoke no, little English so I couldn't communicate my concerns to her. She also had a lot of rules. I felt like I needed to be invisible. I was nog allowed to leave any lights on or make any noise driving and not allowed to use the washing machine until 9pm!! There is nothing like being cold. Not ok.
The apartment was nice with great terrace and garden. It is situated in a quiet and pleasant locality outside of the city, it includes safety parking. The whole stay was without any problem.
Wonderful experience, just what we needed between Florence and Rome.
Staying at Morena's place was a wonderful experience! The house is colorful and very cozy, very suitable for a couple and actually better than it looks in the pictures. It had everything we needed. It is located in a very convenient place to visit Siena and the neighboring medieval villages by car. Also, the route to get there is very pleasant. I would suggest having directions in advance because the exact street is not very easy to trace.
Morena is a very gentle and sweet person, very helpful and eager to help us with everything. She offered us olive oil, marmalade and cookies during our stay there and she also lent us her umbrella on a very rainy day.
Thank you Morena for these wonderful 3 days! We would love to come back!

About the Host, Morena
I am a kindergarten teacher, I live in the Siena countryside I have 3 adult children, and a beautiful dog. I like painting, nature, meditation. I like being with friends, talk, listen, organize meetings and parties. I like good food, especially healthy and possibly vegetarian. I speak English very bad, so I like to meet people from other countries, so you can share with them and practice the English language. For me it is very nice to welcome home my people come from all over the world.
