About The Experience
This two-bedroom apartment in Southern Tuscany is located within a recently renovated country house with multiple apartments and a shared swimming pool. There are panoramic vistas from every direction. The local train station in Asciano can take you to Siena or Chiusi, from which you can travel on to Florence. Don’t forget to seek out the white truffles for which this region is known!
Location Description

South of Siena is the Crete Senesi, an area of Tuscany known for its distinctive grey soil (somewhat resembling a lunar landscape!), rolling hills, and sections of lush woods dotted with Italian villages. This region is known and celebrated for its production of white truffles, and hosts a festival to the fungus during the second and third weekends each November. This area is also known for the famous bicycle race L'Eroica. This country house apartment is located seven kilometers from Asciano, a charming medieval village from which the famous 15th century painter, Domenico di Bartolo, is from. A town with Etruscan and Roman origins, important Asciano sites include the Collegiate Church of St Agata, the Museum of Holy Art, and an Archelogy Museum. It also has all the services needed including a local train to Siena or Chiusi, bus stop, shops, a bank, and a post office. The picturesque city of Siena, just 25 kilometers away, is a wonderfully preserved example of the Tuscan Middle Ages, and a treasure trove of gothic palaces, churches, and museums. You’ll also find good restaurants, fun shops, and beautiful architecture!

Customer Reviews

Amazing! Staying here was like being in paradise.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and the pool.
Enjoyed Least:
We arrived late at night so the first time driving up the winding, gravel hills was a little difficult but it was fine after we got used to it.
Surrounding Area:
We had some great meals in Asciano and took a lot of day-trips to other locations. It was a great central spot to easily travel to the areas we wanted.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Asciano. No, it was driving distance but not too far.
Tips or Restaurants:
The house was stocked with all of the household items you would need (towels, dishes, bedding, etc.). We only had to buy toilet paper and food. The welcome basket was a little underwhelming (fruit and a bottle of champagne) so it would be good to buy food before you arrive, especially if you're arriving late at night.
We used GPS on our phones which brought us right to the property without any issues.
Check In Out:
Check in and Check out were both very easy. The owner was accommodating on the times we needed to arrive and leave. The cost for using air conditioning was also much cheaper than we expected.
