About the Property
Spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment, both cozy and elegant,
Casa al Frate is your perfect home in Tuscany. So close to the city and yet deep in the countryside, it makes both exploring the region and relaxing at home easy and fun.
Close to Chianti, the Crete and the Montagnola, from here you can as easily go winetasting at our neighbouring wine estate Montechiaro, hop into town for a tour of the Lorenzetti frescoes and a great meal at Boccon di Prete or sightseeing in Pienza. And if you prefer the beach Marina di Alberese, a natural reserve within the Maremma region, is only one hour by car. Plenty of signed hikes all around us, north and south and many good meals to be had in our little hill top towns of San Gusme' or Monteriggioni. If you are interested in relaxing at home and getting immersed in the culture we can easily arrange for italian language instruction, photography workshops or art history mini-courses. Just tell us what your expectations are and we will do our best to make your holiday at Casa al Frate the best way to experience Italy!

Casa al Frate is literally 10 mins away from Siena but also on the edge of both the Chianti region and the Crete Senesi, two of the most spectacular areas of Tuscany. A 20 min drive to Monteriggioni, a 40 min drive to San Gimignano or to Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino. Everywhere you will find both 13th century paintings and gorgeous Tuscan wines and cheeses, small romanic churches and golden fields of wheat. Our famous horse race - the Palio - is of course a must-do and I will be happy to provide you with all the insider knowledge you need to understand and appreciate its intricacies!
About the owner: I was born and raised in Siena and after studying in Cambridge, UK and living in Prague and Paris and then Florence and Rome for a number of years I came back to the place I started from! This is indeed the most beautiful place I have ever lived in and I love to be able to share my family's property with our visitors.
Why the Owner Chose Siena, Siena, Italy:
Casa al Frate was part of my grandparents' property and it is now my responsibility to look after it and make sure it provides the most comfortable place wherefrom to explore Siena and the surroundings
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The views of Siena from Casa al Frate are what I most look forward to whenever I come back from a trip abroad. There is nothing as perfect as them. Sipping wine with friends on a balmy night, smelling the grass and the spring flowers while watching the sun as it sets behind the towers of my city... this is what life is about!
