About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This beautiful and sharply restored apartment is on the top floor of a historical palace of Siena, Palazzo Saracini, almost a thousand years old. The owners still live in the palace.
From November 20th 2011 the old elevator has been completely changed and now it's brand new and perfectly working.

The Palazzo Saracini main entrance opens in the heart of Siena, the “Via di Città” street. From there, all the tourist sites are at no more than five minutes walk: the Piazza Del Campo is just behind the palace, Palazzo Chigi-Saracini and the Duomo are almost around the corner, so you won't use car until you leave. During the days of the famous 'Palio' (the oldest horse race in the world, July 2nd and August 16th) it is possible to watch the race directly from a window of the family property or to have dinner in a 'contrada', to taste the unique atmosphere of these days. The morning of the Palio day is run the sixth trial, also called the 'Provaccia', preceded by the Mass for the jockeys, which is celebrated in the Piazza del Campo. In the afternoon, in the church of each contrada partecipating in the Palio, the benediction of the horse takes place. Following this, the 'Comparse' or contrada members dressed in the historical costumes of their contrada meet in the Prefettura (near the Cathedral) which is where the historical parade leaves from it to reach the Piazza del Campo. The historical parade is about 2 hours long. Is possible to see the historical parade from the streets and especially from the two windows of the apartment. Keep in mind that there are large crowds and the streets are very narrow, so it would be perfect to watch the parade directly from your apartment!
Even in the noisy nights of Palio you will be able to sleep well, even if you are in such a strategic point in the city. Special new technology window glasses in all rooms allow you to enjoy a quiet rest avoiding all the noise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I'm a medical doctor with 2 children. I live door-to-door and I always help people with restaurants and tours around the Chiantishire. The housekeeper is in my apartment all day-time and I wish to know if guests have troubles or complains so I can help immediately.

Why the Owner Chose Siena, Siena, Italy:
I live door-to-door to the property. I needed more space for my two kids so I bought the apartment from my uncle G.Luigi Lenzi. All the palace is my family's property from 2 centuries ago, just few new owners are not part of us. So, I bought Suite Saracini and kept two rooms for me: the rest of the apartment has been completely renewed for guests. Usually there is changing towels every 3 days but my housekeeper (FlorMaria) also provide to a quick set-up of bed-room and cleaning bathroom. If guests don't allow her to enter the apartment she will just provide for towels on the bed every 3 days. I'm always there for any complain...if something's going wrong, please don't exitate to ring my bell and I will immediately provide.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The unique position is amazing and considered the best in Siena. I always check personally glasses, dishes and all the forniture inside the apartment. I often renew towels and linen. I really care about details inside the apartment. Sometimes apartments in ther eal downtown of medioeval towns like Siena have little or narrow windows. Suite Saracini has 2 big, large and very lightly windows that won't let you use electricity at all during day-time.
