About Carola & Adam
Hi we are Carola & Adam and we are citizens of the world! We have been living in Dubai for quite some time but we travel to Italy as often as we can. Everything in Belvedere has belonged to Carola's family for centuries and have been either preserved or restored with love. We cherish the idea that we can share this heritage with someone new. Open all drawers, leaf through the books and feel at home. We only ask you to treat the place and its odds and ends as if it was your own cause this place truly represents a piece of our hearts.
Carola & Adam purchased this Farmhouse in 1612
Why Carola & Adam chose Siena
This property and most of its furniture has been in Carola's family for generations. We cherish the idea that we can share this heritage with other people while we are living abroad, giving the opportunity for others to experience the beauty of this piece of Tuscany.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
For us it's the view from the kitchen that we never tire from, although there are spectacular views in every direction. Many a good meal with a bottle of wine has been enjoyed whilst soaking up this view. It's difficult to do proper justice to the place with photos alone. You really need to spend a few days to take it all in.

Really special place with fabulous owners
This is the perfect Tuscan farmhouse. Built in 1700 it has all needed amenities included in a spacious house with quintessential Tuscan hill views.
The owners are super attentive and helped plan our trip for almost a year. They were super responsive to all inquiries before and during the stay. They recommend a great personal cook that provided a welcome dinner, cooking class in the house and made pizzas our last night on the wood burning oven.
We could not have had a better time, this is a really special place and conveniently located a short cab ride to downtown Siena.
This is the perfect Tuscan experience.
It was a pleasure to deal with you Rick and to host you and your travel friends. Guests like you are the reason why we open the doors of our home. Wishing you a happy life and hope to host you again some day.
Perfect place to stay in Tuscany
We loved the house at Belvedere. Very comfortable and well equipped kitchen. We would venture out to the various sites like Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, and of course Siena. Touring was great but the traffic and number of tourists is at a peak. We enjoyed returning to the solitude of Belvedere
Wonderful location for your Tuscany vacation
The Belvedere was a perfect home for our three couples. The kitchen is very functional and well stocked if you want to cook. But I highly recommend you have Katy cook for you a few nights. (You will get those details when you book). Her food was fantastic! We ate out on the detached patio overlooking the valley. The location to Siena is about 15 minutes. There is a small store only 5 minutes away that has wonderful dried meat and cheese and fresh bread, milk etc. There is also a wonderful bakery in that location.
The hosts, Adam and Corola were wonderful to answer all our questions in a very timely manner. I would definitely stay at the home again.
We used a tour guide named Tatjana Gorina, she was recommended by the hosts. She was fantastic! She will help with all your questions and needs for your Italy vacation. She has great knowledge, and speaks good english. All her recommendations were perfect.
Better than what it says on the tin
Belvedere surpasses expectations. The photographs and descriptions do not do it justice: it has to be seen and experienced to be believed.
Opening the kitchen window every morning was simply magical: the thrill never faded. The view is stunning.
The owners have left nothing to chance. The bedrooms and bathrooms have everything you could want – the showers, in particular, are superb. Likewise, the kitchen is well equipped and the main lounge airy and comfortable. It was hot while we were here (36 degrees and beyond) but it is easy to keep the house cool, and there is often a delightful breeze which takes the edge off the temperature.
The beautiful city of Siena is easily accessible – less than 5 miles away. It is also well situated for places such as San Gimignano, Montalcino and Certaldo, to name but three.
Despite its isolated location – one of the many attractions of the property – it is as secure as you could wish. A helpful caretaker maintains a reassuring but unobtrusive presence on the ground floor.
‘Bel vedere’ can be translated into English as ‘lovely view. Never was a property more aptly named. I cannot praise it highly enough, and very much hope we will return some day.
The house is amazing! It is decorated with the most beautiful furnishings and is located in a quiet, spectacular pastoral area. The perfect Tuscan landscape! Carola is very helpful and has provided all the info you will need for your visit to the area. Katy prepared a wonderful dinner for our arrival! A fantastic place to stay---you will love it!
We loved Belvedere! We loved the peace and quiet of the country setting, after spending time in Rome and Cinque Terre where there were tremendous crowds of people. I especially enjoyed opening our window at night to enjoy the cool air, and then listening to the rooster crowing and the birds singing in the early morning. We had a wonderful stay at Belvedere, our home base as we drove around each day to the interesting small towns in the Tuscan countryside. The welcome dinner pizza party prepared by Kathy was delicious - the best pizza we had ever had! I could never get enough of the beautiful view from the kitchen window! Staying at Belvedere in beautiful Tuscany was the best part of our trip to Italy.
