This is a very functional small but small apartment. Completely restored. Is very bright because it has 3 windows in two rooms and from the living room you access to a terrace ideal for breakfast and candlelight dinner. The view is beautiful! From the roofs, to the hills of Chianti to the Apennines! You enter a busy street, cross a palace and you are in a super silent courtyard surrounded by greenery ... it's amazing! In the morning you will be awakened by the birds even though you are in the historic center.

A fabulous oasis in busy Siena!
We st ayed at Chiara's wonderful property in Siena and although quite small the layout is clever enough to make it seem much larger! The view from the balcony was terrific and overlooked a garden....it was hard to believe the tranquility there when we were so close to the street. We were there during the Palio... a must on everyone's bucket list....and so was very active. We were in the Lupa contrada and it was exciting to be part of the festivities particularly since "our" horse won. The apartment also had a pantry with lots of goodies to make life easier..a joy to find oil, pepper and salt etc.The bed was very comfortable and certainly recommend this property highly.
Fun apartment off the beaten track but still really close to all the attractions
Great apartment with a patio over looking olive trees and neighboring gardens with a great view of town below and church and town above. We walked everywhere and this apartment was located in a great spot--7 minute walk to Piazza Gramsci for busses, 7 minutes (or less) to Il Campo, it's located on a side street so the tourist noise and traffic isn't there. Handy kitchen with table and bar, bathroom with window (great view!), patio big enough for two chairs with a table, bedroom with queen bed plus a fold out bed in the living room. Shutters for air flow but privacy, and door to patio has those great hinges so you can flip the top of the door open for air flow but not have the door wide open. Fridge, stove all in working order. We found places to eat and drink near by, and really, the whole town is at your fingertips--we walked all over the place without getting too tired.
Location, location, location!
Chiara's apartment is ideally located in Siena very close to everything you need to make your stay in this charming town enjoyable. There are grocery stores and pastry shops, cafes and restaurants all a stones throw away from her cozy apartment. The apartment itself is well equipped, the bed is comfortable, there was always hot water water for the shower and the ever changing views from the window are really quite extraordinary. There is a small terrace where you can sit and enjoy your morning espresso or evening wine while watching swallows dart in the setting sun with Tuscan hills in the distance. Il Campo is a few minutes walk away, and the Duomo not much further-every walk is a different discovery of something charming and unique. I fell in love with Siena; its contrada's and its history-I hope you will too...thank you, Chiara, for sharing your cozy apartment and beautiful Siena with us...
Delightful little apartment
The owner, Chiara, was very accommodating and helpful. The apartment is in an old building on the third floor, on a street with a steep slope, so you get some exercise. The good-sized bedroom has a window with classic exterior wooden shutters overlooking the courtyard and city--very nice view. The kitchen is small but functional with another window facing the same direction. The living room and bathroom are both tiny, but big enough (barely). There is a small balcony off the living room overlooking a park--very nice.
The washer and dryer were very welcome as I had just finished a 7 day walk along the Via Francigena.
Overall we were happy with the place and would stay there again if we return to Siena.
Great Location and Beautiful View
This apartment is in a good location, only a few blocks from the Il Campo, the famous town square. It was tucked into a quiet neighborhood consisting of very old and quaint buildings. The views from the apartment were the best of both worlds - out of the kitchen and bedroom windows was a quaint neighborhood and the view off of the balcony was olive and apricot trees in the foreground and the Tuscan countryside in the distance, with swallows flying overhead. However, we didn't spend much time in the apartment because Siena is a wonderful town that you want to be out in! The apartment had a full kitchen with refrigerator and oven, access to a washing machine and dryer, and clothes lines outside the kitchen and bedroom windows (I particularly loved feeling like an Italian woman as I hung my clothes on the line). The bed was very comfortable and there were places to hang your clothes. Chiara was a very attentive host, met us at the apartment when we arrived, gave us ideas on places to eat and visit, and was available by phone/email when we had questions. Suggestions of Siena: Go to Il Campo at night, sit down in the square, and watch the activities. Visit St. Catherine's Sanctuary (chapel and residence) and read up on her story. Eat Gelato at Gromm, have Aperol Spritz in the Il Campo, we loved the restaurant Grotta di Santa Caterina - sit outside if you can and have desert with their home made liquor. The Basilica di San Domenico is worth going to for it's interesting artifacts. The Cathedral and crypt are also very fascinating. Wear good walking shoes, be ready to walk up and down hills, and note that there is an escalator down the hill from the Basilica di San Domenico to go back to the il Campo area.
Beautiful, small apartment with a view
This was a wonderful apartment. The view towards the Chianti hills was amazing. The apartment is well equipped and we had a great time cooking with fresh food from the market and eating on the terrace. We would definitely stay here again when we return.
The apartment is located in city center and is easy to reach every possible attraction of the city without taking public transport. Nearby is a paid parking inconvenient for long stays and 250 meters there is one free. 100 meters there are two supermarkets with products of excellence clubs, cinemas and gyms.
