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 is beautiful and very well-equipped. It's very spacious and has everything you could need. It feels as though you're in the countryside even though it is less than a 5 minute walk to the Piazza del Campo. Mariele is really kind and very helpful. I loved staying here and would recommend it to anyone.
The cottage was more spacious and views were even better than shown in pictures. Totally unexpected as we drove through the town and arrived at the lovely grounds. Very clean, everything we needed. Location was perfect for walking everywhere. Taxi from train station to cottage was only 11Euro. Walk back to station was a bit long and confusing. Beware, our initial taxi and a driver we had for a day, both had a difficult time finding the address. Not a big deal but I wish I had better directions to give them. Of our 3 Airbnb stays this trip, this was our favorite.
We loved our time in the cottage in Siena. The facilities were just as listed in the advertisement, and the garden surroundings ensured a very quiet environment, and yet within less than a five minute walk you were in the campo. It was a pleasure to wake each morning to the views of the bascilica of St Dominic, and the open green space around the cottage.
While we never met our hosts, Bernadino and Francesco,their parents were our "neighbours", next door to the cottage, and were available to us for our month long stay. Their sharing of their knowledge of the city gave us an insight into the history and culture, which we greatly appreciated.
Siena is a wonderful city to explore, and the highlights of Tuscany are close by, and having such a comfortable place to live for the month was great. We can only recommend the cottage most highly, and thank Mariele and Guido for their welcome and hospitality.
Bernardino and Francesca were approachable and available to discuss check in arrangements, the place was exactly as it was described, more over, it actually was beyond the described: The view from the little terrace was really amazing, the whole place was tasteful and immaculate, we had everything we need in the equipped kitchenette. it was just perfect for our long weekend. It really felt like home, the front garden felt like entering a dreamy oasis in Siena. It is really a very special spot, perfect for a couple or two friends travelling together. I couldn't recommend it more!
This was our second trip to this "Amazing Cottage", and it is beginning to feel like home! A perfect location for visiting in Siena and the Tuscany area. The hosts are wonderful. Take the private tour that is offered, money well spent. Until next time...

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans ce joli petit cottage. Très bel accueil. Une vue magnifique, couchers de soleil, très belle luminosité et un merveilleux jardin entourant la propriété. L'accès est très facile par les escaliers roulants menant directement à l'entrée de l'immeuble. Pour la visite de Sienne, cet appartement est parfaitement située et aussi dans un endroit très paisible. L'appartement possède un beau potentiel, mais l'équipement devrait être amélioré, entres autres, la literie( un peu dépareillée) la vaisselle et ustensiles, mais surtout les verres à vin compte tenu que nous sommes dans cette belle région de la Toscane avec ses vins raffinés. La douche devrait aussi être repensée. Pour la cuisine, il y avait quelques restants d'huile d'olive et d'épices mais qui n'étaient pas très invitants si nous comparons avec d'autres appartements déjà loués.
En bref, cet endroit possède tout le potentiel pour un 5 étoiles mais beaucoup de petits détails dans la finition seraient à revoir.
Lovely house, great contact with the hosts. The view is unbelievable.
Highly recommended !
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.
Francesca est une personne très agréable, je la recevrai à nouveau très volontiers.
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?"
