About The Experience
Experience rural Tuscany while being close to the city of Siena, and only 10 minutes away from the Superstrada linking Siena to Florence. The estate is divided into 4 detached houses and 6 apartments (6 units which we list on our site). This is an ideal location for visiting Siena, as well as the many nearby hill towns, most of which are less than an hour away by car or train.
Location Description

The estate is located near the village of Costafabbri, and just 5 km from the center of historical Siena. It is also about ten minutes' drive from the main Superstrada linking Siena to Florence. This is a convenient and easy highway to access the Chianti region and the towns of central Tuscany, many of which are within an hours' drive. You're bound to spend lots of time wandering around Siena, a picturesque city that is a well preserved example of the Tuscan Middle Ages, and a treasure trove of gothic palaces, churches, and museums. It is well known for its exiting bi-annual bareback horse races, the Palio, held on July 2 and August 16. Take a day trip to San Gimignano, known for its ancient towers, and to Volterra, famous for its alabaster. You can also take a bus or train for a day trip to Florence.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyed Most:
The view of the hills, grape orchard, and olive trees.
Enjoyed Least:
A bit rustic. Kitchen poorly equipped. Upon check in, no one was there, had to wait for a maid to come and check us in. Upon check out, no one was there, had to leave the keys in the house.
Surrounding Area:
The view was very pretty. We saw people cutting the grapes, and putting them in the carriers.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You would need a car to get anywhere, as it was a couple of miles to the nearest grocery, or to get back to Siena.
Tips or Restaurants:
Be sure you want to be out of the city. Bring some bug spray.

Enjoyed Most:
The view, the pool, the serenity. Also, the villa was exactly what I expected--it was described very well in the on-line information.
Enjoyed Least:
The unappealing box-like exterior of the villa. Which ceased to bother us after the first five minutes. Also, the driveway leading into the property is rutted--a real bone-rattler--but again, minor in light of the joys of the place.
Surrounding Area:
The fact that there were many little towns to visit. The meandering roads through gorgeous scenery.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Costafabbri. It was within walking distance, but you'd be taking your life in your hands, given how curvy and narrow the roads were.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa was very, very comfortable, but I found the pillows uncomfortable. I'm a down-pillow devotee. It never occurred to me to ask the villa owner for replacements, but she was so accommodating, I'll bet she would have found some for us. Also, those things recommended on the website were good suggestions, but they do seem to have acquired a sharp knife and cutting board. Get a GPS for your car, and make sure you have a working cell phone.
Check In Out:
Property owner, Luisa, was there to greet us, and very helpful through the stay.

Overall:
We only wish that we could have spent more time at the villa and some day come back for 2 weeks so that we can soak up the Tuscan sun and enjoy the atmosphere.
Enjoyed Most:
The spectacular view that we woke up to each morning. We hated to leave for the day and some days we just lingered until the afternoon to enjoy the spectacular view.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing, we hope to return some day!
Surrounding Area:
The proximity of the two local restaurants which no matter how late into the evening, invited us in to dine. The food was excellent and very reasonable.
Tips or Restaurants:
Osteria Il Cantuccio in the little town of Costafabbri - Nilo, the owner was wonderful and prepared us an unforgettable dinner. Loved his homemade Limoncello! Also La Capanna Dei Cavalieri which was nearby had wonderful food for reasonable prices.
Directions:
We found it with no problems.
Check In Out:
Upon check in - check out was not too clear but no problem, we just locked the villa and turned our keys in to the owners.
