Here at Casa Fontebenedetta you can rent an apartment in tranquil surroundings in a character property dating from the 1800's, and yet be only 2 km from the historic centre of Siena.
There are five apartments in total here, and In-Italia has chosen to convey two of them. The house is surrounded by a large garden with century-old trees, many nooks to hide in and a nice swimming pool of 12 x 7 metres. The owners have a further 5 acres of land next door covered in vineyards and olive groves.

10 days at Casa Fontebenedetta was an experience! Located on a steep hillside south to Siena, in perfect distance to a little town nearby.
There is a very charming atmosphere and calmness at the property and you'll quickly get a genuine homelike feeling. We were perhaps the only tourists at that moment and almost had the pool and the garden for ourselves. The hostess Constanza was very kind and insisted to pick us up at the train station. The apartment was big enough with a little kitchen, a living room and a big bedroom.
The east-facing terrace was our favorite spot. We enjoyed sitting here overlooking the beautiful garden with some grapes, ham and bread bought at the local marked. It was just wonderful.
We rented electric bikes from Gusto Bikes for a whole week, and this was just a great combination. The bike company came and picked the bike up after at Casa F.
We took all kind of trips. Some of the days, we drove almost 70-80 km. and it was a lovely and beautiful trip to Siena.
We came across vineyards, small villages, animal life and the smell of spices and the electric power helped us over the steep hills. Constanzas father drove us back to the station at the end of our vacation - just another prof of the genuine hospitality that they provide.
In-Italia: once again - we can't come up with anything that we were unsatisfied with, and this was our 7th time with In-Italia. They have an ability to find some nice and fun places with a little twist. Bet we see you again!
