Siena with its towers, churches and monuments appears as a true dream from the wide balcony of our Villa Belevedere! The Villa is in the middle of a wide park adorned with planty of Olives and many other type of trees, where our guests can walk, play and also eat in specific equiped areas.
We are in the heart of the TUSCANY COUNTRYSIDE so the area is very quiet, still just 2 km from Siena city!
The apartment for four is placed on the first floor of the Villa and has a private entrance. It is made up of a wide living room with kitchen corner, 1 double room with internal bathroom, 1 double room, 1 second bathroom and a large splendid balcony of about 50 meters square. The apartment has AIR CONDITIONING and it is furnished with classic and refined forniture.
The windows and the balcony offer a wonderful view of the medieval city of Siena and of the Tuscany hills.
Our guests can easily reach Siena city and visit its famous gothik monuments, but also it is very easy to reach San Gimignano with its medieval towers, the Chianti area, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, etc.
FREE PARKING available inside the private garden of the Villa.
COSTS: 130,00 euro per night for 2 persons; 150,00 euro per night for 4 persons.
Siena is a very interesting town with its history and its traditions.
The places around Siena are also very attractive.
My husband and I and another couple spent five glorious nights in this wonderful Tuscan apartment. The views from the huge terrace were breathtaking. What a great place to dine al-fresco with a nice bottle of Tuscan wine! The listing description was indeed accurate regarding the location which, by the way, provides easy access to great places to visit such as Siena, Montalcino, Arezzo, Montepulciano, San Gimignano, and more. We did lots of wonderful sightseeing throughout the area. A car is essential, and don't forget to bring a GPS. We would certainly recommend this property to our friends.
This apartment was the BEST home we stayed in while in Italy. My husband, (16 year old) daughter and I stayed here in early July for 4 nights out of our month in Italy. We wish we had stayed longer. The setting is fabulous! The apartment is nestled on a hilltop surrounded by lush olive groves and fruit trees with a spectacular view of Siena. The owners were great, spoke english, very kind and accomodating, but definitely gave us our privacy Every room had air conditioning which was wonderful as it was very hot in Italy at the time. The home was so big and clean, beds were extremely comfortable, kitchen well equipped, bathrooms clean and deluxe, and the washing machine was excellent. We loved Siena (5 minute drive, free parking then a quick bus up to Siena-very easy). We had a fabulous day trip to Cortona (only a 45 minute drive). We saw Francis Mayes' house, the author of "Under the Tuscan Sun". Florence was an easy drive for a day trip. We enjoyed going grocery shopping with the locals (5 minutes away), preparing breakfast or lunch at home or simply sipping wine and relaxing on the massive and wonderful patio. A car and tomtom is definitely recommended. I have already recommended this home to friends who plan to travel next sumer. We will DEFINITELY go back, but stay longer next time. We all miss this spot the most. Grazie Dionisio!
The pictures in the listing don't do justice to this wonderful place. We were delighted with the dramatic views of Siena from this spacious, comfortable apartment. We enjoyed relaxed times and meals on the huge deck along with dramatic sunsets and even sunrises. My wife loved the "magical mists in the morning" filling the valleys, and the distant morning sounds of birds, cows and sheep - all about a mile from downtown Siena. Getting into Siena by bus from a nearby parking lot proved easy and economical. The location was also a good jumping off point to visit the Chianti region, along with interesting hilltop towns. Finally, we appreciated getting to know Dionisio, our gracious host. His suggestions regarding local restaurants and transportation were most helpful. We heartily recommend this place and hope to return some day.
My wife and I and our two adult daughters stayed for 5 nights, May, 2012. The apt was spacious, clean and had a wonderful view of Siena. The owner and his wife were most gracious. The drive to Siena was 5 minutes. There was parking for our car next to the villa. The property was "gated" with a remote control for added safety. We took lots of day trips throughout Toscana. Wonderful scenery. We would definetly stay there again.
Four of us (2 couples) stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of May. The apartment was fantastic. It has been newly renovated and looked like no expenses had been spared. Beautiful arched wooden windows with shutters were everywhere. One of the high points of the apartment is the large, beautiful terrace, with jaw-dropping views. The picture on the site, showing Siena in the distance, does not do justice to real thing. Great "wow" factor. In fact, one of our regrets is that our hectic sight-seeing schedule didn't give us time to take advantage of the terrace. The apartment is on the second floor of the villa, and the owner lives on the main floor level. So he is available if there are any problems. I don't think I'm allowed to name hin in this review, so let me just say that he is an extremely gracious and kind man, and meeting him was one of the nice things about renting the apartment.
The apartment itself is about 3 kilometers from Siena, so it is too far to walk back and forth from the city. There are various transportation options, but really, cabs are the best idea. A cab ride is about 10 euros each way. It can get expensive. This apartment is ideal for someone who wants to travel Tuscany by car, and needs a place to use as a home base.
Siena, by the way, was our favorite city in Italy. It is a must-see, and this apartment is a great way to do it.
