About Carola Stenger

I'm German and live since more than 30 years in Tuscany

Carola Stenger purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Carola Stenger chose San Quirico d'Orcia

We wanted to create a place of relax , enjoying the beautiful nature and meeting other travelers as it has been in ancient guest-houses, belonging to the pilgrim-organization 'La Scala' from Siena. Our apartment has already hosted travelers in 1572 - a witness to this is the ancient coat of arms in the kitchen of the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautifully renovated apartment by artisans of Orcia Valley , keeping the original spirit of the place from the 15th century - to give travelers of today's comfort and relaxation from the modern life.

Gorgeous apartment in a quaint setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at LaScala! The apartment was well appointed, and Carola was a kind, helpful and very responsive host. We hope to come back some day since our stay was short and there is so much to explore in the area. San Quirico is a gem of a spot - good location and doesn't get overrun with tourist buses (don't think we saw any during our stay?). We will definitely stay here again! Thank you Carola!

FABULOUS!! Carola is a wonderful host in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Carola’s recently remodeled apartment is wonderfully comfortable (but still feels historic), immaculate and has every needed amenity! Location in the historic part of the city is wonderful, parking is just a short walk away and we loved the village and all it’s ancient history! Plus the apartments 500 year history as a waystation for pilgrims on the way to Rome! Wow!! Thank you so much Carola for an unforgettable vacation!!

Unforgetable Experience !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautifully renovated apartment right in the centre of the old town. The owner Carola is very friendly and gave us a warm welcome and all info we need for sightsee in the area and nearby towns. The apt is very clean and fully equipped and has very good beds. The stone building we stay is ancient but very special and has back access to the car park so that's convenient. It's easy to get around to other parts of Tuscany and many restaurants in this town too.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I spent - together with my boyfriend - one weekend at the beautiful apartment "La Scala".

We were impressed in many regards. First of all, we felt comfortable as we got to our flat. The whole establishment is nicely and clean done up. Even the spirit of living in the beautiful Toscana is reflected in this apartment. Just made with love!

And of course we were under the spell of San Quirico d'Orica. Our flat was very close to the center of this place. Easily, we could get to every beautiful spot - luckely we had our very kind renter Carola, who gave us many insider tipps! Thats why, we could spend a lovely evening at the "Caffé Italiano" which belongs to Carolas husband, named Angelo. Its definitely a place to go if you want to relax while drinking a good wine and experiencing the specialities of Toscana.

As a briefly result, we would say: If you are interested in visiting and/or discovering the heart of Toscana, go to San Quirico and spent a weekend at "La Scala"!

One last thing is to say: Thank you Carola, for this awesome weekend at your apartment! We will come back, that's for sure! :)

OTTIMA

  • 5 of 5

Carola e Angelo persone gentili disponibili cordiali ; alloggio bellissimo comodissimo fornitissimo posizionato magnificamente ;a voler essere proprio proprio pignoli per noi e per le nostre abitudini la mancanza del bidet(sostituito da comode doccette) è l'unico handicap della location ma noi ci siamo trovati ottimamente e ci torneremo senz'altro
