We came to Tuscany to celebrate a special someone’s birthday and are leaving with a life experience all 11 of us will not forget. The villa is very beautiful and historic, but the hospitality that Rosa and her staff showed us made it a totally enjoyable stay.

Thank you very much for a fantastic stay at your villa. We all enjoyed your cooking and hospitality immensely. You are all wonderful people and we will always remember this vacation as one of the best yet. You and you staff made us all feel very welcome and happy! Thank you for providing us with the birthday cake, my son loved the house and the grounds. Thank you!

Location

What to do in Siena area

The medieval town of Siena is built across several hills and valleys; that's why you will find yourself walking up and down through its historical center. The lack of car traffic makes Siena a wonderful place to stroll, especially with kids! Despite sometimes being packed with tourists, the city always has a quiet and easygoing feel. A must-see is the shell-shaped square called Il Campo. This is the focal point of the city and the perfect setting to snap your Instagram photos while enjoying an over-sized gelato. This is also the venue of the internationally renowned horse race, The Palio, which takes place on July 2nd and again on August 16th each year.
Visit San Gimignano, famous for its skyline, and Volterra, renown for alabaster artifacts. The small fortress cities within easy driving distance of one another, each offer their own special appeal. The medieval walled city of Monteriggioni – for example – was built in the 13th century and it is known to be one of the most well preserved ancient fortifications in Italy, which is why it is a preferred destination for plenty of tourists, scholars, architects and archeologists from all over Europe.
