We stayed at Alessandro's apartment for 2 weeks in September. Nice apartment in an old monestary, and great location for exploring. The apartment was clean, and it had pretty much everything you would need. If you are like me and wash your face with a face cloth then you will need to bring one with you, even in the hotels you won't find a face cloth, and you may want to bring some Kleenex with...

Thank you very much for your nice review! It has been my pleasure to have you at my place, Please one again! Best Alessandro

When we arrived the refrigerator was not working. we called Alessandro's representative and in just a couple of hours a repairman was on the scene. He was unable to fix the refrigerator and so Alessandro arranged for a new refrigerator to be delivered the very next morning. His charming father was on hand to supervise so we did not have to wait for the delivery. The problem was not Alessandro's fault, of course, and his...

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at St. Andrea Monastery. Since we were travelling without a car, one important factor for us was the local bus service into Siena which runs fairly frequently (except on Sundays and public holidays when there are only two per day). You have to buy tickets (before boarding the bus) at the small tobacconist shop by the bus terminal in Siena. This is also the terminal from which busses...

The Sant'Andrea residence is located near Siena about 10 minutes from the historic centre. The cosy apartment is quiet, well-equipped and efficient, we found it an excellent base to explore the hill towns of Tuscany and the Chianti region. We would definitely recommend it to our friends. Also we would rent it again if we decide to go back to the beautiful Tuscany.

A couple and myself travelled together for a month in Europe and this was our favourite accommodation; we stayed a week. It quickly felt like home; spacious, comfortable and quiet. There is a garden area with outdoor furniture which we enjoyed morning and evening, beautiful landscape, flowering trees and birds singing. Nearby bells on the hour remind you that time doesn't stop and you must leave soon. The kitchen is well equipped and we used...
