Why Carola Stenger chose San Quirico d'Orcia
We wanted to create a place of relax , enjoying the beautiful nature and meeting other travelers as it has been in ancient guest-houses, belonging to the pilgrim-organization 'La Scala' from Siena. Our apartment has already hosted travelers in 1572 - a witness to this is the ancient coat of arms in the kitchen of the apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
Beautifully renovated apartment by artisans of Orcia Valley , keeping the original spirit of the place from the 15th century - to give travelers of today's comfort and relaxation from the modern life.

Historic apartment in beautiful town
Spent three wonderful days in Carola’s lovely restored apartment. San Quirico d’Orcia is a wonderful town to center your travels from - it’s quiet, interesting and beautiful. Unfortunately our host was away, so we did not meet but she communicated with me throughout our stay and made everything easy and stress free. I loved looking down on the pretty little historic street from our kitchen windows and imagining all of the life that had passed that way before. The apartment has been refurbished with much care and love. I wish we had been able to stay longer.
Dear Dianne, I'm happy that you had a pleasant time in our historical apartment LA SCALA 1572 and I hope to meet you next time in order to show you personally some more of the beauty ot the Orcia Valley.
Beutiful location and appartment.
The apartment has a wonderful location and is appointed very well.
All the amenities in the kitchen and bathroom that were required.
Only criticism was that the wi fi did not work in the back bedroom.
Would stay here again.
Perfect area surrounded by gorgeous Tuscan scenery.
Nicely decorated apartment in an old building, comfortable and roomy. Close to restaurants and shops, and within easy, traveling distance to nearby towns and historical sites.
Slightly inconvenient if traveling by car as the very narrow street does not allow for parking. However, there is a parking lot nearby.
Carola’s enthusiasm for San Quirico is contagious. She can be counted on for continued communication leading up to, during and after your stay.
Recently stayed there for a week. Great location for touring around the country side! Excellent apartment in the midst of town. Great owner/manager. The apartment is well located for walks, restaurants, and shopping! Husband owns Cafe Italiano just a block from the apartment. Awesome pastries and coffee!!! We will return!!!
It was really a pleasure to have Craig and his friends as our guests. We enjoyed it to see how well they felt during their stayed with us. Craig, we are looking forward to welcome you again as our guests and share some time together!!!!
FABULOUS!! Carola is a wonderful host in every way!
Carola’s recently remodeled apartment is wonderfully comfortable (but still feels historic), immaculate and has every needed amenity! Location in the historic part of the city is wonderful, parking is just a short walk away and we loved the village and all it’s ancient history! Plus the apartments 500 year history as a waystation for pilgrims on the way to Rome! Wow!! Thank you so much Carola for an unforgettable vacation!!
Gorgeous apartment in a quaint setting
We loved our stay at LaScala! The apartment was well appointed, and Carola was a kind, helpful and very responsive host. We hope to come back some day since our stay was short and there is so much to explore in the area. San Quirico is a gem of a spot - good location and doesn't get overrun with tourist buses (don't think we saw any during our stay?). We will definitely stay here again! Thank you Carola!
Dear Tom and Kelly,
Thank you so much having been our guests and I'm happy to know that you had a great time.
Looking forward to welcome you again - there are still a of beautiful places you must visit and a journey to Orcia Valley is always a guarantee for relax and mindfulness. Best regards Carola
