Casa al Frate is a 10 minute drive from Siena, set amidst olive groves and offering the most beautiful views of the city you will ever get. A perfect place where to relax or come back to after a day of sightseeing.

The space

Casa al Frate is minutes away from the city, yet immersed in the countryside. You can decide to stay home, relax and sip wine while looking at the sunset. Or you can hop into the car and go and visit San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Montalcino to look at paintings or opt for a winetasting tour in nearby Chianti!

Guest access

Guests have their own garden, space for the car, and al fresco covered area and a small balcony. For the winter there's a lovely fireplace that makes the apartment even more cosy!

Interaction with guests

I live in the apartment next door, in the same farm-house. Work permitting I am always available to give you tips and help you find the best ways to explore Tuscany

Other things to note

i prefer a minimum stay of 3 nights usually. if guests only want to stay one night the price might be higher. Also, if you come during the Autumn or early Spring and need some heating, the cost will be added to the general cost of the house. Usually it varies between 8 and max 15 euros a day (but that would be extreme!)

We had a brilliant stay at Miriam’s. She is truly a superhost who went above and beyond. We asked if there was a microwave for sterilising our baby’s bottles and even though there wasn’t she bought one especially for us to use. She also had great recommendations for things to do off the beaten track, from frescoes to food. This is a fantasic place if you’re keen to stay away from busy Siena. There are gorgeous faraway views of the Sienese skyline in the distance and peace and quiet abound. The staircase is external to access the house with no internal staircase for those worried about children and stairs. Most highly recommended.

Miriam was a very kind host. She offered to provide an extra bed for us upon seeing that we were a party of four adults, well before we arrived, and gave us some great suggestions of where to park and visit in Siena. The house was clean and specious, and had a beautiful garden and an expansive view of Siena. It also had screen windows, which helped keep out mosquitoes and other bugs (very important in the summer!).

We were expecting a nice place, but found ourselves exceptionally pleased. Everything was thoughtful from the fresh flowers to squeaky cleanliness. The setting couldn't be nicer sitting the garden with Siena glowing in the sunset. I almost hesitate to leave such a good review for fear Miriam will never have room for me on a second visit.

Miriam's house was lovely. It is close to Siena and has fantastic views of the city and countryside. There were fresh flowers in every room upon our arrival and the house was spotless! It had every comfort we needed. We wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Miriam!

Great communication from Miriam and the house was beautifully prepared with vases of fresh flowers in all the rooms. A beautiful farmhouse with fantastic gardens for outside dining and amazing views. We were fortunate to see fire flies and deer in the garden in the evening. Great location for easy acces to Siena and Tuscan countryside by car. Highly recommend.
