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

Overall the property and atmosphere were great. The location was convenient to Siena and we found this to be very enjoyable, much more so than Florence.
Enjoyed Most:
The peaceful gardens and the bed/bath arrangements.
Enjoyed Least:
We had some issues with seemingly small things. The Internet code kept expiring, and we would have preferred a less sensitive access, but the staff were helpful in sorting out the problem. Also it would have been nice to have some dishwashing fluid and sponge. The exit onto the road was tricky. We were always worried about oncoming traffic.
Surrounding Area:
The view over Siena.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Contafabrio was the nearest town, but other than one osteria, there was not much here. It was a long walk and the road was narrow.
Tips or Restaurants:
The large Conad supermarket was a great blessing. The pizzeria in nearby Montebuccio was great and we had a tasty, reasonably priced dinner with a view of a gorgeous sunset.

Enjoyed Most:
The views and pool area.
Enjoyed Least:
Proximity to town.
Surrounding Area:
Quiet surroundings.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Costafabbri too dangerous to walk as streets are narrow with lots of blind corners.
Tips or Restaurants:
Buys basics: soap, paper towels, dishcloths, salt and pepper, toilet paper... since it's not a hotel don't expect extras.
We took a cab as the car rental in town closed at 12pm Saturday and we didn't arrive until 7pm.the info on the car rental said they were open till 9pm so we were without a car for a day. The car rental is in a travel agency...poor service. The cab driver knew our property.

It was great to return home each night to our little place.
Enjoyed Most:
The setting - the views across the vineyards - the olive tree grove - the pool area, even though we didn't swim. I hate to admit that we did enjoy having English language CNN for our news 'fix'. Proximity to Siena and highway was great.
Enjoyed Least:
Musty smell - Difficulty in working the washing machine and dishwasher. Louisa gave verbal instructions upon our arrival, but we would have appreciated a printed pictorial about how to use them. The toaster blew the circuits, and we never tried to use it again. The lighting was harsh in the living room and minimal in bedrooms. Pillows are pretty hard, but I always travel with a small down pillow.
Surrounding Area:
Siena was very nearby which was one of the reasons for our choosing this property. We enjoyed day trips to Assisi, San Gimignano. and Monteriggione, Orvieto, Montalcino and Sant' Antimo, Pienza, Cortona and Arezzo. We had purchased a GPS before the trip and found it to be VERY USEFUL!!!
Nearby Events or Locales:
The little market is on the right at the very bottom of the hill.
Tips or Restaurants:
We did find dishtowels, dishwasher tablets and a little salt and toilet paper. We brought soap for showers, soap, sponge and 'wipes' for kitchen, salt and pepper. We went to Conad supermarket for paper towels and other basics, then filled in at the little market. We bought some candles to add a little atmosphere because the lighting was harsh. We especially enjoyed La Cappanna dei Cavalieri 'up the hill' in Montalbucci....very good sea bass and a short pasta with gorgonzola. Il Cantuccio wasn't as much to our liking. We would have enjoyed a CD player while we were having cocktails and dining.
Our GPS brought us in from a different direction.
