About Cristina Berio

I'm an Italian native from Milan, currently residing in Los Angeles. I work in the film industry as a Dubbing Supervisor, and my jobs frequently take me to South America and Europe to supervise the foreign language dubbing of major film releases.

My kids and grand kids are spread all over the world, so it takes a lot of flying to see them every year, but I love it!

I'm fluent in English, Italian, and Portuguese, and I speak a little bit of French and Spanish. Our, greeter, Karin, is also fluent in German.

Cristina Berio purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Cristina Berio chose Val d'Elsa - Siena

This property is owned by me and my siblings. Our dad settled in Radicondoli in the 1980s' and he loved this village. Before passing away in 2003, he wanted to make sure we had a place in Radicondoli, so we could come back to this lovely village, so dear to him. Plus we still have close relatives that live in the area. We feel so lucky we can come here on vacation every year with our families, and enjoy our elegant, comfortable and huge apartment ... much more spacious than other comparably priced rentals in town!

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is so large that there are several distinct areas to it, each with a different feel. Each bedroom is quite different from the other and they are on different floors and opposite sides of the apartment, so there is a lot of privacy. The kitchen is to die for ... truly a sociable pleasure to cook in!

Wunderful!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Radicondoli in July 2014 and had a great time. The house is charming and comfortable, with views on the Tuscan hills. It is well equipped, with lots of light. We would go back often if we didn't live on the other side of an ocean!

Magique!

  • 5 of 5

C'est le mot qui convient pour cet endroit... Niché dans un village typique de la Toscane, animé mais pas bondé de touristes, cet appartement est le lieu idéal pour visiter la région. Entre Pise, Sienne et Florence, la situation géographique est parfaite. Vous emprunterez la rue principale pavée dans le pur style toscan avant d'arriver à l'appartement situé au coeur du village. Au passage, le parfum de l'Italie, de ses habitants, les vrais, vous enivrera! Vous vous sentirez à l'aise dans ce beau duplex aux larges volumes. Là aussi, les effluves de l'Italie et de la Toscane ne vous échapperont pas!

Tout est très propre, rangé ; et l'accueil est tout à fait charmant. Il n'y a aucun défaut, aucune mauvaise surprise. Au contraire, vous tomberez sous le charme de cet endroit et n'aurez qu'une envie... y revenir!

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Traveling as two couples the separate baths and bedrooms was ideal. The apartment is as presented in the photos. It is large, clean and well equipped. The terrace was perfect for enjoying locally purchased wine, cheese and salami at the end of the day. We had dinner in each of the local restaurants and all were good. We did day trips to Sienna, Volterra, San Gimignano and Colle Val d' Esta and a local winery. Marina promptly answered all questions and her local manager, Karin, was very helpful and pleasant. Radicondoli is a lovely small village and this is a great apartment. I would highly recommend both the town and apartment.

PERFECT APPARTMENT - PERFECT RADICONDOLI

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Radicondoli for a week in early October with friends. The apartment was more than beautiful, huge, very cosy, well divided and very clean. A full bathroom for each couple was very appreciated. Having a drink on the balcony looking at the sunset was magical. The village's restaurants were excellent. Having dinner at the apartment after buying local food was great too. Our stay was so perfect, we loved it and we will never forget this lovely typical village.
