Daniella was a warm and friendly host. A lovely torte and a few basic food items were waiting for us on our arrival. She actually led us to a nearby market to shop for groceries. When we left she gave us a road atlas to help us on our way. The apt was clean and classically beautiful. As well the grounds, patio, garden were a nice spot for a glass of wine with Siena and the Tuscan Hills for our view.
