Treat yourself with a special holiday.
Admire a spectacular, unique panorama from a flat that was built not just at the heart of siena but also on its highest point.
You will be able to see the whole of siena and all its surroundings up to mount amiata or chianti’s hills. The gothic cathedral and the mangia tower so close to you that you could touch them with your fingers.
From the sky to the city streets in just 5 minutes: that is about the time you would need to get to piazza del campo (siena’s main square).
The flat can host up to 5 people: works perfectly for a couple but it is also very functional and comfortable for a lonely traveller.
Easy to reach and right in the centre of the city, the flat stands on one of the most ancient areas of siena, 300 mt away from piazza del campo and the cathedral.
This flat is the ideal location for those who want to discover siena but also its surroundings: chianti, val d’orcia and the closest tuscan cities.
For those who want to know more about the palio, thanks to the flat’s position it will be possible to live a unique experience just at the heart of one of siena’s contradas: the contrada of pantera.
The flat is located at the third floor inside a historical building in one of the highest spots in siena.
Besides offering a breathtaking sight on the monuments and buildings, the flat has very nice interiors that match the classical tuscan fashion combined to a more modern one. This well-finished style goes together with comfort and a cosy atmosphere.
The bedrooms, a double and a twin, are large and homely, quiet and cosy. The option of a childbed is also available or a third bed for another person to sleep in the same room.
The pienza room
The double-beeded room pienza has antique furniture, well combined with more modern details offering a totally romantic environment.
The tower room
The tower room is a twin bedroom and the furniture’s style is early 1900s. The leading tones are aquamarine, for a full relax.
A wide and luminous living room with also a table to dine and relax area gives a wonderful sight on siena’s roofs.
Just three steps up and you get to the bathroom (with shower).
A well-equipped kitchen faces the dining room, from which with a few steps you will be able to access the roof terrace for a breathtaking sight.

Monica e Fulvio purchased this apartment in 2009
Live siena from the very top is a flat to rent for tourists.
The minimum stay is 3 nights.
We stayed in this lovely apartment with its rooftop terrace in early November this year and really enjoyed it. The views from the terrace were stunning, including the view of the Duomo. The apartment was very comfortable with a large bathroom, comfortable bed and well equipped. The landlord was charming and explained everything when we arrived and left us with a lovely bottle of Chianti wine. The location was great with easy walking within the walled town. There was a wonderful pastry shop for our morning coffee and sweet just down the street along with grocery and fruit market. It was also easy to find some good restaurants nearby. This was just a lovely place to spend a week!
This apartment is amazing! Beautiful views and a perfect location.
We loved it!
This apartment is perfectly located right in the heart of Siena. It is spacious and beautifully maintained and provides an oasis of tranquility away from the bustle of the town. We were welcomed by Monica, who was very helpful. The view from the roof terrace is amazing. Highly recommended.
We just spent 7 weeks in Italy and our 9 days in Siena (during the Palio) were magic. The apartment (in the Pantera contrada) has the best view in town. Located atop Siena's highest hill you had breathtaking views of the city's landmarks AND the surrounding countryside. The apartment's location enabled you to catch a good breeze every evening to offset the only fly in the ointment regarding this rental...no AC. There were multiple fans which, coupled with the evening breeze, made sleeping comfortable (if not optimal). A surplus of space, nice antique furnishings and a well stocked kitchen made this a great find...but the rooftop terrace and the location made this a dream. Conveniently located for sightseeing and a 4 minute walk to the best meal of our lives (no exaggeration) at Hosteria Castelvecchio. Ezio, our waiter, provided us with impeccable, friendly and helpful service followed by a meal fit for the gods. The Truffle Scented Chicken Liver Pate..the Suckling Pig...I'm drooling just thinking about it. We ate here twice (5 different courses each) and everything was spectacular. It may only be ranked #11 on Trip Advisor but that is only because it is small and off the beaten path. Seriously! Eating here is a MUST! The apartment is within a 5 minute walk of numerous superb restaurants, speciality food shops, the Duomo and Piazza del Campo. Be sure and try some of the wild boar dishes while in Siena. Not only is it a beautiful city but it is perfectly sized for walking. The city is divided into 17 contradas, each represented by either Panther, Dragon, Giraffe, Tower (to name a few), and each contrada has a fountain denoting it's allegiance. In one day we tracked down every fountain (on foot) and photographed it. It made for a nice black and white photo gallery in our hall. I only mention this to show how walking friendly the city is. If you enjoy shopping the city is full of great shops and on Wednesday there is an incredible market set up along the city wall (near the bus station). We tend not to shop when we travel but a cool linen jacket for 10 euros was something I couldn't say no to. We only met Monica during check in but she was welcoming and helpful. The apartment was not only clean and well maintained but we were greeted with a bottle of good wine. I can't stress enough what an incredible find this apartment is, and in a beautifully historic and friendly city. We will certainly return...and stay here. Enjoy!
The photo of the Siena skyline is the view from the apartment and is even better from the terrace. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect in that one can walk to all of the sites, local grocery stores, restaurants and the bus station. Although everything is close by the street is off of the main tourist area, so it is quiet and one feels very much at home. I would definitely recommend it, don't let the stairs deter you, it is definitely worth the climb.
I am delighted to write the first review for this wonderful apartment! It is so beautiful, splendidly decorated with Tuscan antiques, and provides a magnificent 360 degree view of Siena from the lovely terrace. You really feel on top of the world!
The apartment was spotless and furnished with lots of extras -- soaps, shampoo, coffee, teas, and provided all the essentials and more for snacks and home-cooked meals.
Monica and Fulvio are the most gracious hosts and I immediately felt like a welcomed guest. They provide excellent guidance both verbally and in writing and are extremely prompt in responding to any issues (there was a slight outage in the WiFi system which Monica resolved immediately).
This is a new property on the Siena market and I'd been searching for a long while to find the right place for my 8-day vacation. I admit that the lack of reviews caused some hesitation initially, but following my correspondence with Monica -- and my intuition! -- I went forward with the booking. I'm so glad I did!
This will always be my top choice of stay in Siena, not only because of the competitive price point, but also for the five star quality (I love authentic, antique Tuscan décor), its central location with all the sights within a few minutes' walk, and the excellent service provided by Monica and Fulvio.
Grazie mille per tutto, Monica e Fulvio!

Soak in the magical atmosphere of a unique city.
At the very heart of tuscany and surrounded by world-famous sites like chianti, val d’orcia (orcia valley) and maremma, siena is definitely one of the most interesting and magical medieval cities to visit in italy.
About the palio
It is the city’s most important event and it is part of the local people’s life for the whole year and since the day they were born.
It is a complex and fascinating tradition , so the best way to discover it and understand it is to stop by in the 4 days that introduce the palio to get a closer look to how locals feel and behave and to the city itself, that is completely transformed.
The race takes places every year on 2nd july (palio dedicated to our lady of provenzano) and on 16th august (palio dedicated to our lady of the assumption).
