Each spacious, light-filled room offers glorious hardwood floors and 12-foot ceilings, and is finely furnished with Tuscan antiques and hand-wrought iron pieces from the artisans of Pienza.
The bedroom is fitted with a king-sized bed and offers direct access to the full bath. The open living room and dining/ kitchen area offer a cozy and communicative ambience, perfect for relaxing, socializing and dining. The modern kitchen is well-equipped, as the owners love to cook.

We bought Casa sul Giardino at a time in our lives when we didn't know where in the world we wanted to live, but definitely knew where we wanted to spend our vacations. It was a perfect decision!
Mandy & Bernardo purchased this apartment in 2005
When we discovered the Val d'Orica, we thought we had landed in paradise on earth. The natural beauty of the region is overwhelming.
We are avid hikers and cyclists, we love good food and wine. There is an abundance of opportunities for all of these right at our doorstep.
We figured, 'Why go anywhere else?!'
We had a wonderful stay in this property. Everything about the process was easy. The communication with the owners was fantastic. Besides the great information about the property and the surrounding area, they also answered some questions I had about travel in the area.
Check-in was very easy with a great walk through. Everything was very clean with many nice touches. We took full advantage of the travel books and maps that were on-hand.
The apartment is very quiet on the top floor with a great view on the gardens. We spent several afternoons just sipping wine and enjoying the view.
We hope that we can come back and spend more time in this wonderful little Tuscan town and this beautiful property.
this is a wonderful home base for great tuscany day trips. apartment has all the modern amenities you need and its so quiet and peaceful. the views of the garden while sitting at the dining table will be forever in my memory. the town of San Q'uirico is charming with several fantastic restaurants. This is truly a treasure of a place to stay at. you will not regret staying here.
The apt was just as advertised - clean, modern in the right places (kitchen/bath), but keeping with the Tuscany environment. It is quiet and a nice view of the gardens. This is a walk-up and it is on the top floor so there is no noise from above you and very minimal from the street below. The town itself was wonderful and my husband and I enjoyed just exploring that a couple of days while in the area. A very short drive to Montalcino and Pienza ( another fun town) It met our expectations when we wanted to have our own place in Tuscany for a week!
This is a wonderful apartment. It has everything you need including an incredible view. It is comfortable, clean, and very nicely furnished. Parking is safe and only a short walk away. The town is small but perfectly located to explore southern Toscana and although small, the town boasts several excellent restaurants, all a short walk from the apartment.
My wife and I enjoyed a special week at Casa sul Giardino. Located on the top floor of a relatively new building the pretty as a picture view of the Horti Leoni garden and the ancient wall behind was easily enjoyed by opening up the three huge windows. The spotless apartment's high ceilings, new and old furnishings, fixtures and artistic finishes created a distinct uncluttered Italian atmosphere. The sights, sounds and people of San Quirico provided us with an up close and personal exposure to everyday life in Tuscany impossible to feel in larger more tourist dominated locations. The town is small enough to be peaceful but large enough to offer the choices and amenities we needed. It was also nice to occasionally see the local contact for the apartment, Christina, and her family around the town during our stay........ in case we needed help. We did not miss having streaming video or a TV in the unit because we collapsed into bed each night after enjoying long late dinners that filled our evenings.
This apartment is exactly as described on the website. It's well equipped, comfortably furnished, and managed by a local lady - Christina - who was very helpful to us. The outlook over the formal garden is very restful and the village is great - nice restaurants, close to the local grocery co-op, and plenty of free parking outside the ancient walls. The Valley d'Orcia is picturesque with easy driving to the many nearby towns and villages, in relatively light traffic. The owners have provided a comprehensive list of places of interest, restaurants, vineyards etc, as well as general advice about the village itself, and were prompt and efficient with regard to booking and payment matters. We very much enjoyed our stay, would certainly stay there again, and recommend it to people looking for a taste of Tuscany and village life.
