Hi, I'm a 32 years old winemaker. I live in Montalcino and taking care together with my sister Francesca of the cottage next to the family home in the center of Siena.
The cottage was amazing - so close to the hot spots, and like our private piece of paradise. The covered patio was our favorite spot for meals and drinks. I definitely recommend!
We loved our stay in the little casetta. Wonderful garden, amazing view, nice clean kitchen and not on the main tourist routes through the City but only some steps to the campo. We will come back.
The cottage was very good and we enjoyed our stay very much. The host was very friendly and we can recommend the cottage to everyone.
We had a wonderful stay at Francesca's cottage. The location is perfect - serene and quiet and yet only a few minutes' walk to the central piazza. There are some great restaurants very close by and a useful little shop for cooking essentials. The house was clean and tidy and we were made to feel very welcome.
The only small thing that left a slight sour note was a negative review of us left by the hosts, saying that we didn't respect the departure time. Us having suggested and agreed that we planned to leave at "around 11am" we then left at 11.10am at the latest, so we were a bit confused by this feedback.
All in all though we would thoroughly recommend the cottage.
Our visit and stay at this "Amazing Cottage" was truly Amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the privacy, beauty and condition of the cottage. It is exactly is described. Our hosts were very gracious, helpful and caring. The cottage is located steps from the important sites of Siena and practicle needs such as restaurants and groceries, yet provides a great opportunity for privacy. The garden is an extended element to the cottage's serenity. We found our peace within its walls.
The cottage is really amazing and the view is wonderful. Francescas mother was very kind and we felt like home.
We had a fantastic stay in Siena. Highly recommend!
My husband and I and our 8 month old son had a wonderful time in this little gem of a house. It contained everything you need including beautiful views. It was clean and tidy, and we felt very much at home. The host is very kind and hospitable. I can only recommend this place for every one wanting to go to Siena and Toscany!
Please advise whether previous reviews were received?
Lovely cottage, amazing view in the heart of Sienna. Really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it!
We enjoyed this amazing cottage in the heart of Siena. There was a marvelous view of San Domenico Church across the way with its lovely bells ringing at various times of day. The cottage is located so close to Siena Cathedral and other fabulous Siena features. There is a convenient grocery nearby and so is the Piazza del Campo.. all wonderful.. so many beautiful roses and gardens surround the cottage which is very roomy and has large windows...We were helped also by lovely hosts and received a delicious bottle of wine which we enjoyed immensely. We heartily recommend this cottage and hope to be able to visit Siena again and stay here!
It was a pluser to host Francesca and her family!
Hope to see you soon!
It was a pleasure to welcome Bernardino and Francesca. Easy communication prior arrival, they are very respectful and took care of the apartment. We will be glad to welcome them another time. Ludovic
Francesca y sus amigas han sido muy amables y respetuosas con las normas de la casa, encima han dejado el apartamento limpio y ordenado, unos huespedes maravillosos sin lugar a dudas... espero que volveis en futuro o tener mas como vosotras
I would recommend this guest who took care of the apartment, which was very nice. The next time she will come to Paris, I hope she will come in my apartment, because it is a real pleasure to have a guest like her.
Bernardino is the perfect guest! He is educated and very friendly. Also my son Alessandro found him great and asked me "When is he coming back?"
