vivo a Siena, più precisamente nella campagna senese. Lavoro in proprio e passo il mio tempo libero con la mia famiglia ed il mio cane
Chiara hosted me and my boyfriend during the Palio and we stayed there for 4 days. The house is in the countryside and the road to reach Siena is very romantic, especially at night! The room is amazing and there's also a fully furnished kitchen for all the guests.
She doesn't live there, but she stays just few minutes away.
Hope to come back next year!
Stefania&Luca - agosto2013
Le site est agréable et calme dans la campagne. Permet de visiter la Toscane car est bien situé. Les chambres ont un certain charme et l'accueil est sympa.
We stayed three nights at Chiara's apartment. It is outside the old city of Siena but you can easily take the bus to go there.
The apartment, which is part of a condo, is fully equiped and very clean.
We saw Chiara only when we arrived because she is not living at this place. Even if we were late, she welcomed us with a smile.
Chiara is a very nice and helpful host - she picked us up from the bus stop in the center of Siena as the driver forgot to stop earlier! Both my friend and I think that the apartment is a little far from the center of Siena, at our opinion not "near" as the description says. We had to walk a long way in the heat to the station to catch a bus to the center. The kitchen is small, but you can cook small meals there. I would recommend this apt if you have a car and especially if you are planning on doing day trips in Tuscany and need a place to sleep.
We lived in one of Chiara's apartments for three months while studying in Siena. For us (a young married couple) the place worked out well and was fully equipped with everything we needed. The apartments are in a great old building, about a 30 minute walk from the center of town (Piazza del Campo). The good: Chiara is very flexible, responsive and easy to deal with; the place is charming and classily Italian; the apartments are well stocked; it's a good base for exploring Tuscany because it's a 10 minute walk from the train station and on the main road to Florence with many buses; the price is good; and Chiara keeps it very clean. The bad: it's on a busy street (ask for a unit facing the back of the building); there's not a lot to do in the nearby neighborhood but it's where most sienese actually live; it's small; there's some noise from the restaurant below; and the first part of the walk into town is not particularly pleasant. Overall, we were satisfied with our stay and would return.
Although this is not a bad accommodation at all, it was not what we were looking for. It is close to Sienna, only about 5 km away, but it is on a very busy road where trucks drive by. This would not be an issue but the windows are not well insulated so the sound comes through very very load. It is hard to sleep. But if you are a sound sleeper you wont have any issue. I suggest that if you book in October/November that you insist to have heat no matter what even if Chiara says to give it a try overnight to see if you need it first. It was great to see though that the place had a washer in the private washroom. There is a kitchenette as well as bigger kitchen to use on each floor. Chiara is very sweet and met us late at night to let us in, and helped with everything we need. As well, the wifi does not work well at all in the room, but is ok outside the room.
Se trata de un apartamento perfecto para pasar unos dias en Siena y/o la Toscana. Se encuentra a unos 15 minutos del centro en bus. La parada del bus está realmente cerca del apartamento. No tuvimos problemas para aparcar en la zona. Todo estaba muy limpio. Chiara fue muy atenta a nuestra llegada.
We booked for two nights over the il palio festival...a very lively time to be in Siena. Chiara our host, met us when we arrived, and has very good english. We stayed 2 nights and our room was one of three on the first level. the rooms were clean and tidy, with aircon (a godsend in august). basic cooking facilities and a fridge, the place was secure and tidy. There was a pizzerria next door, the busstop was 2mins walk, and the coop supermarket was a short walk away. all in all a good stay..we would consider visiting again.
Chiara è maniaca della pulizia, sempre impegnata a mettere a nuovo, curare, sistemare ogni minimo dettaglio della sua accogliente dimora.
Dedica così tanto tempo a fare bene il suo lavoro che mi sento di dire che più che un lavoro per lei è una passione.
La capacità di interagire con le persone, anche appena conosciute la rende unica nella ricezione, non a caso tutte le persone che sono state della sua dimora sono sempre rimeste entusiaste.
Chiara is clean freak, constantly striving to make new, treat, arrange every detail of his hospitable home.
Devotes so much time doing his job very well that I would say that more than a job for her is a passion.
The ability to interact with people is a quality, indeed all people who have always been enthusiastic about her VillaFortunata and reception.
