Situated just 16 km west of Siena, this farm complex contains 8 apartments in character buildings that have been refurbished with much respect to the original appearance, and for this reason it is truly authentic.
Because of its authenticity, you should expect a mixture of grandeur and decay with a cosy feel. The apartments contain many beautiful heirlooms and often extremely small kitchens. If you are seeking authenticity and all the charm that comes with that, then Il Pero di Cetinale will suit you well.

There are green areas around the buildings with garden tables and chairs and a swimming pool (7 x 14 m) with sun loungers and umbrellas. There is parking around 70 metres from the apartments. The farm is in an excellent location for those wishing to explore Siena, and at the same time, stay somewhere peaceful in the countryside.
At a short four kilometres from the farm stands the cute little town of Sovicille, where you will find shops, a few restaurants and a cosy atmosphere.
The farm is situated on the side of a wooded mountain called La Motagnola whose small roads, windy paths and cute villages make it an exciting place for cycling and hiking tours.

Lovely, local and rustic place. No luxury, but lovely and big apartments. Lovely place.
Really great, big and spacious vacation apartment - with the exception of the world's smallest kitchen!!! It was annoying, and everything but pleasant to use it!
Lovely pool area, but the daily cleaning/emptying of bins, etc. was of a poor standard.
The hospitality was fantastic and "the man at the place" was great. Unfortunately the place chose to change their network/router in the week we were there, which meant we saw a lot of workmen, but not the network we had expected from the description. (But it probably works now.)
Cetinale is a really great starting point for excursions in a fantastic area by car or bike (highway). "Right down the road" is a vineyard, where you can get a tour of the fields and production, if you're a bit brighter than we are. We "settled" for tasting of Chianti wine and olive oil, and bought both with us home....
We tried a couple of restaurants in the area, who all delivered really great food and drinks.
Sienna is a must, when you're there. We went twice, which was nothing less of fantastic.
