I have to say my great experience started from the time I've booked our stay at Le Splandole. Michele was very nice and made an inquiry about our plans. Usually I ask the owners myself and get some recommendations back. But Michele is not an ordinary host, he sent me very details directions, descriptions, recommendations for places, restaurants, grocery stores, local markets even before I've got a chance to ask. We tried so many delicious things from "Consorzio Agrario" in Siena, enjoyed great time in thermal pools, visited beautiful places and tasted local wine. Not to mention the apartment made us feel like home, it is beautifully decorated and filled with so many interesting books. From our 15 days journey around Italy I can with no doubt say this was the place all four of us enjoyed the most. It was a pleasure to be Michele's guest!
The house, environment and hospitality of Michele was great! We really enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a relaxed stay to explore the Toscana region.
We stayed with 2 small kids and the house was perfect and comfortable and cosy.
Michele was very helpful and caring.
We had a wonderful and comfortable stay in Michele's place. It is as the pictures shown here.
Michele was very kind, responsible and friendly. He prepared a detailed map for us to the house and recommended us many places to visit, with all the guides prepared in the house.
Besides, he was so helpful to do our laundry as the washing machine broke down.
It is a good place to stay if you just want to escape from the main tourists places. Short drive to Sienna and few other small villages. 1 hr plus drive to Florence.
Thank you Michele again for providing us with such a comfortable place to stay.
Abbiamo trascorso un bellissimo week end presso il podere Le Splandole. Siamo stati molto contenti un posto molto bello tranquillo e abbondantemente sopra le aspettative. Un ringraziamento particolare a Michele per la Sua disponibilità e cortesia .
The host did an excellent job of maintaining communication about the apartment and the area before we arrived. There was a welcome gift of wine, cheese and salami waiting for us in the apartment and he met us soon after we arrived to give us a welcome in person. The property was exactly as described and the area is lovely and secure. The apartment is very well stocked with anything you could need and very comfortable.
Michele was friendly and helpful. He gave us a lot of advice on where to go and eat. Thanks to him we went to a bath at the end of one of the days and watched the sun set sitting in a thermal bath.
He had lots of information about the surrounds in the house.
The house was lovely with great views. My wife and kids loved it and so did I. Would stay here again.
Location is perfect to explore Sienna, Chianti and even Florence.
Dear Cengiz, thank you staying at Le Splandole.
I will try to follow your recommendation
We had a wonderful time at le Splandole and Michele is an amazing host. I have met nothing but nice people through AirBnB, but Michele was on another level of nice. He sent us excellent directions on how to find the apartment, it was the easiest key handoff I have ever had. He also sent us recommendations that were terrific for just about everything, from restaurants to food shopping, to where to park in Sienna, etc. When the washing machine broke down, he ran 2 loads of laundry for us at his house.
The apartment was impeccably clean, the mattresses comfortable and recent, the views incredible. The photographs are completely accurate.
I recommend le Splandole unconditionnally.
Michele was the most amazing host, giving us very detailed directions and even providing a welcome appetizer. The apartment was clean, extremely comfortable and fitted out superbly. The sunsets and sunrises from this beautiful apartment were stunning. Very Tuscan, stunning scenery. Close to Siena by car. Would definitely recommend this stay.
Perfect place for our trip in October! We were 4 adults and had plenty of room, cooked a couple of evenings and was easy to get into Siena by car. We took a couple of Michele's recommendations:
- We visited Taverne dell'Orso in Monteriggioni which we really enjoyed. We were lucky enough to go on a Friday night when there was a band playing. Not too touristy, simple food, nice atmosphere.
- Our favorite village was San Gusme which seems to have escaped the crowds of tourists that we saw in other hilltop towns, we had a lovely little meal there on our last night.
Michele gave us a warm welcome, we met his wife and family as well. He very responsive and always got back to me within a couple hours at the most.
The apartment is located a few minutes drive from a small village Casetta which in turn is about 9 kilometres from Siena. The apartment is as described and depicted in the photographs. The accommodation is of a very high standard and one of the best that we have enjoyed using Airbnb.
Michele is a great host. Communication prior to the stay was excellent and during the stay he was available to answer our questions and to assist.
conosco michele almeno da 35 anni. eravamo vicini di casa e le nostre famiglie si sono frequentate. E' una ottima persona, una persona per bene, fortunata di averlo frequentato.
I know Michele since 1996 in Belgium/Holland. I have been his guest several time at that time and I still remember his great hospitality and the amazing breakfast with Nutella.
Great happy funny family. Know them since 1999 in Bruxelles.
Their house in Tuscany is fantastic. We loved it.
