It’s near enough for ready access to Siena yet remote enough for your private piece of Tuscan tranquility. The house has been split into two different areas; the upper floor (accessible by a short stair case) is where you will be staying. The ground floor of the farmhouse (also a vacation rental) has completely separate entrance and has no access to the upper floor. Traditional Tuscan architecture, characterized by terracotta floors & exposed wooden beams is common throughout, including the three spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. A dining table that seats 10 will be the centre of some great feasts and memories or you can choose to eat around the more cosy kitchen table. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, glassware & ceramics, enabling you to cook up your own meals if you so desire. Come and enjoy the 'Dolce far niente' - the sweetness of doing nothing by grabbing a book, cooking up a meal & playing some chess or cards. Alternatively use this as a base for countless day trips to explore Tuscany & beyond. This property and most of its furniture has been in Carola's family for generations. We cherish the idea that we can share this heritage with other people while we are living abroad, giving the opportunity for others to experience the beauty of this piece of Tuscany.

About the neighborhood
Siena is one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval cities in Europe with an absolutely stunning cathedral Il Duomo. The hospital of Santa Maria della Scala is said to be the oldest hospital in the world. The Piazza del Campo is a beautiful sight any day of the year but transforms to its medieval state for the famous Palio di Siena every 2nd of July & 16th August. Each contrada or section of the city battles it out for the famous bareback horserace around city centre.
