About Mandy & Bernardo

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

Why Mandy & Bernardo chose San Quirico d'Orcia

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?!'

                                                                      Ed B.

                                                                      Casa sul Giardino was everything we had hoped for and more — an exceptionally well-appointed, well-equipped and very comfortable apartment in an ideal setting in a smaller, and thus, for us, idyllic Tuscan town. Every aspect of our stay was excellent: the initial briefing and occasional advice by Christina, the local contact; the extensive library of local and regional touring information/maps; the clear and complete household manuals; the ample provision of daily necessities, from kitchen implements to swimming caps. San Q is a delight, and this apartment made us feel completely and comfortably at home in it.

                                                                      Lovely apartment - fantastic village

                                                                      Ken H.

                                                                      We loved the apartment - very well furnished and spacious. It is not air conditioned but the nights were cool even with very hot days. The village was great. A quick visit to the Central Bar was the perfect start to the evening with several very good restaurants within a block or two. Groceries and other essentials are a couple of blocks away. The village is well located for day trips around southern Tuscany - Florence is a bit of a haul. We would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a comfortable stay in a quiet area with easy access to many areas worthy of a visit.

                                                                      A quality apartment in a completely excellent location.

                                                                      David D.

                                                                      Everything in this apartment is quality. From the tasteful Tuscan furnishings all the way through to the modern kitchen units and all its plentiful accessories. This was our first stay here and it most certainly will not be our last. We recommend it wholeheartedly.

                                                                      San Quirico is a charming small town relatively unspoiled by tourism and as far as the Val D'Orcia area is concerned no words from me can adequately explain it's in enduring splendour. Go there and use this apartment. You will not be disappointed.

                                                                      The best way to enjoy Tuscany

                                                                      We spend 2 x 1 month in Europe usually spending a week at a time in multiple locations. This is by far the nicest apt that we have stayed in. It is a real apartment, not a hotel room. You can really believe that you are living in San Quirico. As others have said everything simply works.

                                                                      Fantastic property! Romantic Getaway

                                                                      Ian H.Travelers Rest, SC

                                                                      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.
