Why Anna Polvanesi chose Siena
This is the ideal apartment for exploring the gorgeous Gothic jewel that Siena is. The tower of the Church of San Giorgio is part of the apartment's inner structure. The apartment is well cared for, immaculately clean, and reflects the serenity and beauty of Tuscan style.
What makes this Apartment unique
Location, location, location! The presence of the owners nearby is a definite advantage. In spite of its inner town location, the apartment is very quiet. There is every convenience; dishwasher, washing machine, one bath with shower, and one bath has a bathtub. Separate thermostat for heat. In the heat of summer the apartment remains cool.

Beautiful Apartment in Great Location
The apartment was lovely, spacious, comfortable, clean, etc. The hosts Anna and Franco were very helpful, friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed everything about my stay here. The only thing I would mention is that since there is no A/C, the windows must be left open to cool and there are no screens on the windows, which left us with multiple mosquito bites every night.
Thanks Julie for your review, it was nice to meet all of you, a really nice group. I'm sorry and I'm surprised about the incident. Siena has never suffered the invasion of mosquitoes due to its hilly position and the absence of stagnant water. For years I live in the same building located in the historic center and I have never had problems with these annoying little animals.
For this reason it is rare to see the screens on the windows of the houses in the city. Perhaps you may have found mosquitoes during your beautiful tours.
Our house, like all the old houses in the historic center of Siena, has very thick walls (thick walls protect from the heat in summer and cold in winter) and fans that until today have not made the plant indispensable of air conditioning.
Ciao, a hug!
Casa Ciara is spacious, light, beautifully furnished apartment. It is comfortable and welcoming.
We only have positive comments about the property, it can not be better. Anna and Franco, the owners, are charming, accesible, informative and consequently very helpful. They made our stay in Siena easier and a lot more satisfying than it would have been without them. We will definitely recommend their place without any
It was a pleasure to know you and your family!
A stunning apartment!
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful apartment. It is perfectly located, exceptionally well presented and Anna and Franco were the most welcoming and helpful hosts you could possibly hope for - nothing was too much trouble. We will most definitely be back! We also had a couple of delicious meals at the restaurant downstairs which you should try. The only thing that would make things even more perfect would be air con in the bedrooms as we were there during a particularly hot summer week. A fantastic trip and stunning apartment.
We recently spent 3 nights this fantastic apartment in the days leading up to the Palio.
Although we had no idea what to expect from either Siena or the apartment, we could not have asked for anything better. The location is ideal and being located within the walled city is the only way to go. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Anna and her husband, Franco. They helped us with our luggage and then gave a nice orientation of the apartment. It is very spacious and comfortable. They then explained the highlights of what to see in the time we had allotted for the area and where to park. When they had indicated that I may have parked in the wrong location, Anna offered to walk me back to the car and showed me where to park. She went so far as to stand in an open parking space to hold it until I could get the car moved. Anna and Franco are both natives of Siena so they have a great sense of pride of this wonderful city which they passionately promote. Any requests we had during our stay were immediately accommodated. The icing on the cake was when we returned home from touring and they had left a birthday card and gift for my daughter's 13th birthday which happened to be when we were staying in the apartment. Such a nice touch.. The family and I definitely plan on returning to Siena and would only stay in this apartment.
Wonderful apartment - terrific hosts
This beautiful apartment is close to many of Siena’s attractions.
Anna and Franco are very welcoming and are happy to help you with maps and directions.
We visited as a group of four and all of us highly recommend this apartment.
Spacious elegant apartment
Really nice place and Anna and Franco were spectacular hosts, helping us to and from our car with baggage and anything else we needed
