A wonderful home in amazing countryside close to Siena
We really enjoyed our short stay in your wonderful home in amazing countryside close to Siena. The apartment is situated in an imposing, but intriguing ancient building nestled between lush hills. It is furnished in a comfortable & stylish manner, perfect for travellers who yearn for something a little different. Once there you feel remote but safe & of course Siena is a short drive away. We appreciated Andrea’s advice on restaurants in Santa Columba & Siena & enjoyed some delicious meals. Our explorations took us to Volterra, which was amazing, as well as Colle Di Val D’Elsa which was an unexpected discovery. Our only problem was that we didn’t stay long enough to relax more in such serene surroundings!

A peaceful haven close to special places.
We loved our two weeks in this unique part of the world in a special apartment owned by generous people who understand what travellers need. Art, food, isolated walks, a warm home to come back to at the end of the day where we could review our experiences by the fire. A best kept secret:travelling at this beautiful time with frosts and sun and not too many crowds!
Great accommodations about 15 minutes outside Siena.
There were four adults in our group and the unit had plenty of room with lovely furnishings in the two bedrooms and a nice living room area. It was an easy drive into Siena. We booked this location because we wanted to stay in the country and used it as a launching place to visit the other Tuscan town such as San Gimignano, Siena, the Chianti region and even Lucca/Pisa. The bathroom is on the small side but not a problem for us at all and would not keep me from staying there again. We drove from Florence and Andrea met us to show us around. He also had milk, juice, tea and an expresso machine with the coffee packets ready for our use which was nice since we were out in the country. He provided a list of suggested itineraries and restaurants as well. Because you are in the country, you need to plan to either cook (great-well stocked kitchen) eat while out and about or make that easy drive to Siena. We would stay again.
5+++ Stars for this terrific home
My family of 4 vacationed in Rome and Northern Italy for 2 weeks. Andrea's property was by far the best place we stayed in. The apartment is immaculate...very clean. It seems brand new. You can tell Andrea and his family really take care of the home. The kitchen is very well appointed and very modern. The bedrooms are large and sunny. And the views from all the rooms are very beautiful. It is a very short drive to the city of Siena...about 10 - 15 minutes. And Andrea was very helpful explaining local restaurants and details of the home. When we locked ourselves out of the apartment (oops!) he was there very quickly to let us in. This is a great rental in a great area. Thank you for sharing your place and helping our family make great memories Andrea.
Great apartment, just far enough out in the countryside yet close enough to Siena to pop in for sightseeing and eating. We enjoyed walking locally every morning. Great communication from Barbara and Andrea. The apartment is very well equipped, including juice, milk and coffee and comfortably furnished. Quite possibly the best holiday rental ever! We will return!
Lovely, bucolic location in a very comfortable apartment just a 20 minute drive from Siena.
We were warmly greeted and accompanied to La Senesina by Andrea, the owner. Andrea and Barbara thought of all the amenities to make our stay comfortable and, on discovering that we had no GPS, even kindly loaned us theirs. The apartment was so peaceful and the location out of the movies. We spent our days visiting all the charming Tuscan towns and returning "home" to a cozy apartment in an historic and restored convent. We would highly recommend this special place.
