La Nostra Storia
Il mio nome è Anna. Lavoro come ginecologa a Siena, e ogni anno faccio volontariato in un ospedale a Nairobi, in Kenya, per circa un mese. Ho ereditato questa proprietà da mio padre Luigi, il cui padre, a sua volta, l’aveva comprato nel 1917. Villa Santa Chiara ha origini molto antiche: fu costruita sulla cima di una collina come un convento di suore nel 17 ° secolo, e trasformato in una casa colonica all’inizio del 19 ° secolo.
Negli anni ’80, mio padre decise di riconvertire la proprietà in una residenza per le vacanze, in seguito presi io in gestione la villa, rinnovando l’intero edificio e i suoi dintorni. Oggi la struttura ospita diversi appartamenti ed è circondato da un ampio giardino con piscina, circa 500 ulivi tutt’attorno alla collina, da cui si gode una vista mozzafiato sulla città e sulla campagna.
Mia figlia maggiore, Claudia, ha conseguito una laurea in Storia dell’arte presso l’Università di Siena, ed è una guida turistica autorizzata di Siena e della sua provincia dal 2016. Claudia e io viviamo qui; gestiamo insieme la nostra proprietà e amiamo condividere i nostri tesori con i nostri ospiti.
This Villa is perfectly place outside the wall of Siena. Just a quick walk to all the historic beautiful buildings, restaurants and all the sites. The hosts Claudia and Anna are there to recommend and accommodate all your needs for a pleasant holiday. One evening they arranged for us to have two chefs, who came to our villa/apartment. These chefs were so much fun, they gave us a fabulous hands on cooking class. We made pasta and other dishes from scratch. So delicious and one of our highlights of our stay.
The grounds are beautiful, comfortable, a safe and secure gated property. It also is very centrally located to explore the Tuscany region. I highly recommend this villa, you will complete your vacation with great accommodations and true Italian flare.
Nice place to stay. Beautiful landscape, peaceful place and garden, very close to Siena piazza del campo. Nice pool, not used because we didn't have time. We spent 3 nights in the apartment 6. It was all clean and cozy. They provided us bread, salami and wine as a welcome gift. All kitchen equipments that we neede was available. Good shower and nice bed to sleep. I recommend it.
Premetto che sono venuto a Siena per lavoro non per svago.
Ho scelto il Santa Chiara perchè mi hanno convinto la descrizione e le foto, visto che cercavo un posto tranquillo dove stare che, al contempo, offrisse le comodità ed i servizi della città.
La posizione è incantevole, il parco è suggestivo ed offre il giusto grado di separazione dalle strade cittadine. L'appartamento in cui sono stato (il n.2) è composto di due piani, con l'ingresso indipendente, arredato in modo familiare ed accogliente. Dopo un mese mi ci sento a casa!
Ottimo appartamento situato in una bellissima zona appena fuori il centro,tanto che a piedi in 15/20 minuti sei in Piazza del Campo.
L'appartamento (perfetto per 5/6 persone) si sviluppa su 3 piani con l'ingresso al piano terra,il soggiorno un bagno e la cucina (ampia e completa di tutto) al primo piano,due camere da letto (una con bagno) al secondo piano. All'interno tutto era in ottime condizioni,ben pulito ben arredato e ordinato.
La vista di cui puoi godere appena uscito è quella che solo Siena e i suoi colli ti possono regalare. All'esterno,oltre che all'immenso giardino, c'è anche una piscina ma dato che era Dicembre non abbiamo potuto utilizzarla.
We loved our stay at Villa Santa Chiara 6. The apartment was lovely and much nicer than the pictures can show. The gardens are lovely, the views spectacular and the pool was a great way to relax after long travels. We shopped and ate at the market nearby and walked into Sienna several times. The villa are s conveniently located right below the city walls. We wish we would have had more days in our trip to enjoy the property. We hope to return for a longer visit. Fabulous Siena location with teens. Anna was a very welcoming host and helped us book a great cooking lesson at the local school and recommended the city tourism walking tour, which was perfect, 2 hrs and on 8 people on the small group tour. Definitely stay here if you can.
I stayed in this beautiful villa with my children (ages 14 and 10); we all LOVED it!!! We swam in the wonderful pool every morning and late afternoon. We would walk to Siena and explore the town during the days and evenings. We also used this as a base to explore the many hill towns of Tuscany. Villa Santa Chiara was clean and beautiful with everything we needed for our stay. The hosts, Anna and Claudia, were warm and welcoming, answering all of our questions. We bought some of their delicious olive oil to bring back home with us. I highly recommend Villa Santa Chiara for a place to stay in Tuscany!!!
Wonderful location, Claudia was so accommodating and grounds were beautiful. We stayed with another couple and it was a great place to reconnect and relax. Claudia also gave us a private tour of Siena. She was knowledgeable and very personable. We enjoyed everything about our stay.
There were 4 of us staying in this apartment and it was perfect. WiFi was spotty.
The pool was fantastic, turned my swimsuit green, but other than that it was really nice.
There was a small grocery store about 2 min walk away so that was really nice.
The walk to town was about a 10-15 min walk but up a steep hill so not ideal to walk to town if you have a disability. Good news is the taxi system works decently well. Probably would've been easier if we spoke Italian but 30 minutes later we were able to get a taxi. (Sundays are busy for the taxi company)
This is a great choice if you have no car and want to walk to vibrant Siena.
We will return to this VRBO in the future. The location is simply fantastic. Just a 10 minute walk to a gate of Siena and a perfect location to launch day trips to surrounding towns. The hosts were lovely and the accommodations perfect for our needs (it was just 2 of us). Convenient walk to grocers in Siena and rarely was the pool area occupied by more than 2 couples at a time. The kitchen had basics for our needs, refrigerator/freezer, gas cook top with 4 burners, oven, dishwasher. The parking was convenient and the drive was gated, keeping a sense of peace and security. Take pool/beach towels with you as they are not provided and regular bath towels are not really suitable for the pool. This is a quiet place with no distractions from other guests. The views are exceptional from the hilltop on which the property sits. See you folks again...the Cannons, USA
A fantastic apartment for 4. It suited us and our needs perfectly. Parking for the car, rooms for us and the children and two bathroooms/showers, as well as a separate dining room and kitchen. Perfect!
The pool was lovely, with great views across the valley.
The location, 15 minutes walk from Il Campo was great. Walking up the hill to Porta Roma was a good way of staying fit!
The shop/cafe/bar 100m away at the end of the street was a treat and I loved my morning espresso from there.
We would happily stay there again. Really enjoyed it and lovely Siena.
We stayed nine days in July in this house. It is very nice and comfortable. Walking distance to Siena, and at the same time very calm (apart maybe from some barking dogs in the distance some time). Claudia is a great host. We enjoyed her guided tour (which is included in the "package") of Siena. When things got a bit to hot, the kids (and the parents) were enjoying the pool. We were able to do some star gazing in the evening as well.
All in all, a highly recommended place to stay, to enjoy beautiful Siena and the surrounding area.
