Very early in our planning of a 5 plus month European dream vacation, we found and booked Attica San Francesco. The view is indescribable, it is so glorious. The hosts hospitality and graciousness is beyond compare. They are indeed superhosts. The Christmas tree made our home away for the holiday cozy and charming. Our hosts even made restaurant reservations for us so we had special places to dine on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The apartment is large with very comfortable beds. The kitchen is very well appointed with everything we needed to cook with, including spices and oils. A full size refrigerator, with ice trays was an unexpected bonus. Especially for Americans who love their ice! The welcoming items of local wine, typical Siena treats, and breakfast items made our stay exceptional. WiFi was exceptional. Everyday of our week long stay provided wonderful sunrises and sunsets from the outstanding terraces. The apartment is a very convenient walk into Siena. A small, but good grocery store is right down the stairs from the apartment. An unexpected surprise were the cities escalators, an experience that everyone must do. All said, the flat and week visiting Siena is a highlight of our trip. We have Attico San Francesco on our short list of where we definitely want to return to in the near future.
Siena is not flat. Access to the apartment is on a steep street. Had difficulty finding the access code box - look to the left door frame and there it is (not in centre of door). Made a call to the owner as we could not find the correct key for the apartment. The housekeeper was in the apartment and the key was sorted out. Be patient with the key in the door - it is and older building and not North American style. The apartment itself is not modern. The bed is comfy. The apartment is clean - but old (about 600 years old). But the location is fantastic. Close to Campo, restaurants, shopping, and points of interest. Walking to all is easy - did I mention that Siena has hills. We would consider to stay here again. Thank you to the landlord (Luca) for being so kind and responsive.
