About the Owner
I am a mother with 2 young children, age 8 & 11 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 8 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy through my website - I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.
Guestbook comments from the manager
"We had a lovely stay, thank you. The house/ apartment was excellent. It was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The pool was lovely and the owners were friendly. I would thoroughly recommend it! It was a bit further to walk in to Sienna than we had expected, it takes at least half an hour if you walk pretty quickly. As we are fairly fit and walk fast it wasn’t a problem but other guests may want to know how long it takes. Thank you very such for a great holiday." D Sedgwick
From the Owner
“This property has been really tastefully and elegantly furnished in a modern, contemporary style. The outside space and swimming pool is lovely and it offers guests incredibly good value. For me, the real bonus is that you can enjoy great value and beautiful accommodation but still be within walking distance of the beautiful city of Siena. There is so much to see and do in Siena but it's also a great location to explore the other sights of Tuscany too. With only a 20 minute walk to the heart of Siena, it's lovely to spend an evening in the centre of the city enjoying dinner before strolling back to the villa.”

The quickest coastal resort to drive to would be Grosseto an hour way. Alternatively Livorno and Cecina are 90 minutes away. Alternatively, you might prefer to head inland to Lake Trasimeno in neighbouring Umbria. There are lakeside beaches here and the shallow waters are ideal for those with children. Since the water is shallow it tends to be lovely and warm too! It will take just an hour to get to one of the main towns on the lake - Castiglione del Lago.
