About this listing
The apartment "Il Melograno" is part of Residence Podere Olmo, a family-run residence located near San Rocco a Pilli, a small town only five minutes away from Siena immersed in the Tuscan countryside.
The apartment is 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.

Great apartment, great neighborhood. After Florence we enjoyed the piece and quiet and sipping wine on the marvelous terrace.
Apartment is about 20+ minutes from Sienna by car. Not an apartment but a multi-unit rental. Place was very clean and decent. Ask which suite is available if you care about a view as we had a suite on the ground floor facing a driveway. There was a shared washing machine, there was soap there but unclear whether it was someone's or supposed to be shared. Don't count on it.
Doretta, the host was very nice.
Given the chance we'd stay closer to Sienna in the future.
Doretta and her husband made us feel welcome and the apartment we were assigned was very basic, neat, clean, and quite large. If you are a light sleeper I would ask for a room away from the road. We were right next to it but earplugs did suffice.
Due to my poor Italian and Doretta's poor English we didn't get to chat but they were available right away if we needed anything.
Very convenient to Siena and surrounding Tuscan hill towns.We were met by Doretta's son who provided very clear direction on where items were located, how to use the listed services available and spent some time recommending possible sites in the area that we may be interested in seeing or visiting.
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.
Helpful host and lovely apartment. It is a 10 minute drive to Siena but given we had a car that wasn't a problem.
