Siena - Apartment "Il Melograno"

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Via Uccianino, Sovicille, Tuscany 53018, Italy

The Space

Podere Olmo is a family-run residence located near San Rocco a Pilli, a small town only five minutes away from Siena, immersed in the Senese countryside. The apartments are housed within an ancient "podere" (farmhouse) which has been remodelled by closely following the original features of the typical Tuscan farmhouse and by using all the old materials, from beams to ceiling trusses, to bricks and hand-made terracotta of outdoor floors.

The apartment has two rooms, a private entrance and is decorated in a rustic Tuscan style with equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower and dryer, TV, telephone, wireless internet connection, independent heating and air conditioning. We offer a covered parking spot, laundry with dryer, equipped outdoor terrace and garden...and a distressed family feeling that you can find only here!

The town centre of San Rocco a Pilli is located only two hundred meters from the residence and comes with all the commercial services and conveniences such as supermarket, pharmacy, post office, banks, restaurants and pizzerias. Siena is reachable in only few minutes by bus or by car.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Helpful host and lovely apartment. It is a 10 minute drive to Siena but given we had a car that wasn't a problem.

    October 2012
  • We had a great stay here! This is the perfect Tuscan countryside apartment! Large, clean and Nicola was an absolute gem. :)

  • We weren't able to meet Doretta but her friend Francesca and son Nicola took great care of us. The flat is big, comfortable and well equipped. Homemade jam and honey were a lovely touch, thank you Doretta! Siena city center / Duomo parking is 12 minutes' drive and basics (supermarket, pharmacy, recommended Il Buon Sapore pizzeria) are available within walking distance. The only (small) drawback is the traffic noise during rush hour with the windows left open. Overall the flat offers good value for money and is a perfect launch point to explore the area.

  • Such a charming spot! My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our time here. Really great value for money and perfect for families with children as there was two rooms.

    Lovely family who own it, they even filled the fridge with complementary fresh fruit and homemade jam! We would stay there again.

  • We (2 couples) loved our stay at Il Melograno. The apartment was lovely & very well appointed. The local village of Roco A Pili was a short walk away with supermarket,etc. Nicola was very helpful with local knowledge to help us enjoy our visit to Tuscany and the extra touches of their own olive oil & honey on the bench & the lovely gesture of Mr Fusi bringing over wine & a large bowl of delicious home grown figs was much appreciated. Thank you.

  • Doretta, her husband, and son were very welcoming. The place was very clean and there was a lot of room. We received freshly picked plums and Doretta even helped with our laundry when we ran out of time to finish before we went out for the day. The location is really well situated and about 20 minutes into Siena. A lovely spot.
