Siena Estate Apartments: Home At First's Siena apartments are located on a gated, restored 17th century Tuscan estate just outside the city walls, a 25-minute walk to the hilltop Piazza del Campo, site of the extraordinarily colorful Palio horse races held every July 2 and August 16. For guests with cars, Siena makes a fine touring base within two hours drive time (or less) to Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Assisi, Perugia, to the famous Chianti wine region and the wine towns of Montalcino and Montepulciano, and the nearest beaches on Tuscany's Tyrrhenian seacoast. The apartments are available for one or more weeks, and may be readily combined with other locations in Italy as well as with other Home At First European destinations.

HOME AT FIRST's SIENA ESTATE APARTMENTS

         HOME AT FIRST offers four vacation apartments on an expansive (12-acres), manicured estate just outside the medieval city walls of Siena. All four apartments are decorated and comfortably furnished in traditional Tuscan style. The apartments are clean, well cared for, and well-equipped. All are within short drives (5-10 minutes or so) to stores, services, several restaurants, and to Siena's railway station. Each apartment has secure entry and reserved parking. The restored 17th century estate is accessed only by a electronically secure gate and private lane leading uphill from a safe, if bustling, residential community. Importantly, all HOME AT FIRST Siena apartments come with caring, accessible English-speaking hosts on-site or very close by.

AMBIENCE: The apartments are not air-conditioned (except for the third floor of the 3-story apartment), relying on thick, stone walls, high ceilings, and large windows with functioning shutters to effectively cool the apartments in the time-tested Tuscan manner. Happily, guests of all four apartments have access to the comfortably furnished, landscaped estate grounds, and to the secluded estate swimming pool with its views of classic Tuscan scenes.

 

COMFORTABLE, STYLISH, & WELCOMING. LITTLE TOUCHES TELL YOU THIS IS TUSCANY.

FLOOR, PARKING, & ENTRIES: The apartments are on the ground, 2nd and 3rd floors and even the ground floor apartment has some stairs. Therefore, the apartments are not wheelchair compatible. Private, designated parking is 50-75 yards from the apartment entries. However, guests with cars may drive to their apartment entries to drop-off luggage and groceries before parking their cars in the parking area.

 

ALL FOUR ESTATE APARTMENTS ARE FURNISHED IN TASTEFUL TUSCAN STYLE, WITH
COMFORTABLE UPHOLSTERED CHAIRS & SOFAS, AND NUMEROUS ACCENT PIECES
INCLUDING ANTIQUES, PAINTINGS, AND PRINTS TYPICAL OF THE REGION.

CARE AND CLEANLINESS. The apartments have been thoroughly cleaned prior to your arrival, but are not maid-serviced during your stay. Apartments are non-smoking and do not permit pets. Basic starter kitchen and bathroom supplies are provided.

 

THE KITCHEN MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT ROOM IN A TUSCAN HOME. ALTHOUGH
FEW GUESTS PLAN TO SPEND MUCH OF THEIR VACATION TIME IN THE KITCHEN,
AT THE LEAST YOU WILL ENJOY HAVING A COMPLETE KITCHEN FOR BREAKFASTS,
LIGHT MEALS, AND SNACKS. BUT IF YOU WISH TO LEARN TO COOK TUSCAN STYLE,
YOUR HOSTS CAN ARRANGE FOR A LOCAL PROFESSIONAL CHEF TO TEACH YOU
HOW TO PREPARE A SIENESE DINNER IN YOUR APARTMENT KITCHEN.
