If you want to discover the countryside around Siena, the famous Crete Senesi, and you don't want to spend a fortune, this is the ideal location for you. The apartment is situated in a small village, Ponte d'Arbia, which is only 5 minutes driving (maybe less) from one of the most beautiful boroughs in Italy, Buonconvento. There's plenty to see all around: Montalcino (the worldwide famous centre of Brunello production) is only 15 km away; the Medieval Abbey of Monte Oliveto is literally a 15 minutes driving escursion through the hills and fields and is definetely worth a visit; there are many Medieval "pieves" spread all around, one of which is the pieve of St John the Baptist in Corsano, 18 km away; Siena is 25 km away.
Ponte d'Arbia is located along the Via Francigena, the ancient road running from France to Rome used by the pilgrims in the Medieval Age.
The nearest train station is Buonconvento; supermarkets and shops are in Buonconvento and Monteroni d'Arbia, however in Ponte d'Arbia you will find bars and grocers.
Bus transport to Siena is available, and we will provide you the timetables in you want.
The apartment is on the first floor of a small condo building and it accomodates 3; it is composed by a hall, a fully equipped kitchen with a balcony, 2 bedrooms (one single, one double), one bathroom.
You can park your car in front of the building.
Hairdryer, bedsheets, towels and washing machine are provided.
The minimum stay is one week (7 nights) and you have to leave a caution deposit of 100€ when you arrive (which we will obviously give back to you if everything is ok when you leave; in case of damages, we will keep the needed amount to fix that).
Check in is generally from 2 pm and check out is by 11 am, but we can arrange otherwise if case you need to.
Airbnb will block a security deposit of 100€ 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.
We kindly ask you to make your booking 4/5 days before your arrival, so that we can be sure we can provide you everything you need and host you in the best way possible. Anyway we will try to make our best also with less forewarning!
The guests will throw the rubbish and do the dishes before leaving. Smoking allowed only in the outside!
La casa risulta molto curata e mi sono trovato benissimo. La strada anche se non vicinissima a Siena è molto comoda. Peccato che 3 stanze della casa erano chiuse a chiave.
Anche se viene indicato 1 bagno, la foto riporta 2 bagni. Probabilmente una delle stanze chiuse è il secondo bagno.
In tutti i casi, ho passato un ottimo soggiorno in una casa molto pulita e in futuro sicuramente effettuerò un'altra esperienza con aribnb.
Although unfortunately we did not meet, Lyza turned out to be very hospitable. She answered very quickly to questions and took immediate action where possible. A perfect hostess, even at a distance!
The apartment is a little like a family museum, which we liked very much. A good point from which to start visiting the surroundings.
Very comfortable and cute and the host was very beautiful. Located in the small town without supermarket, have to drive 10 minute to buy somethingto eat(but little alimentari is in 20m), but very near town montalcino so nice place to buy some wonderful wine. If we could use the firlplace the it would be better. Just one thing I've missed.

I am student in Engineering and Architecture , interested in anything eco and social conscious. I love chocolate, pizza and Chopin. I'll make my best to host you and give you some advice on how to live in Siena or Castiglione della Pescaia, where to go, what to see, where to eat truly tipical Tuscan food.
