“Converted Carriage House - The Perfect Home Away From Home in Delightful Siena”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

My husband and I went to Siena expressly for the one of Tuscany's most unique events - the Palio, a horse race whose origins date back at least 700 years in which jockeys ride bareback for one of the city's 17 Contrade around the medieval main square in an attempt to win a pennant of the Madonna.

We decided on Leonardo's house because the photos of the house and the garden were so beautiful. At arrival everything lived up to expectation and more. The house has been impeccably restored and refurbished. Antique furniture reside pleasingly with modern furnishings. Leonardo has an exacting eye and exquisite taste. Besides this he is a gracious host. One night we were invited for a glass of wine and cake to celebrate his birthday along with his dancer sister and painter father, who live in the villa next door. The carriage house is composed of 4 rooms, the livingroom and kitchen cum diningroom downstairs and two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. We slept in the master bedroom which has windows on 2 sides - in the morning one wakes up to the view of bell tower of the Saint Catherine cathedral located inside the Siena old town, the other view is of that of the Tuscan hills. What makes the house exceptional is how Leonardo has paid respect to the history of the house. Many original features have been preserved, like the ancient brickwork on the floors and walls, the exposed beams, the iron rings to which the horses used to be tethered and the herringbone-patterned vaulted ceilings. What I found particularly delightful was the staircase: it starts out with as burnished brick and plaster, much like how the house is built, and is met midway by wooden steps held in place by wrought ironwork. The staircase says much about the owner Leonardo's vision of the house, to transform an ancient humble structure into a modern abode that provides modern creature comforts while respecting the form and function of the original structure. As of this writing work is under way to convert the adjacent shed into a laundry room.

I must mention the delightful garden where we spent many a times relaxing and recuperating from long days of sightseeing. Accessed through the kitchen door, the entrance of the garden is shaded by an apricot tree and another leafy tree. Stretching out in front is a peddly path and a series of large terracotta pots of basil, rosemary and savory, which Leonardo's father kindly invited us to use. Flanking the path are 2 flower beds and rose bushes. At the end of the path are graceful, towering bamboo that catches every breeze.

Directly in front of the property is the roadway. While it has only 2 lanes, it does get its share of traffic. Because the house is set a bit back, my husband and were not much put out by it. Also the master bedroom faces the hills and valley, so we were ensured of restorative sleep every night. The plus side is the bus stop right by the property's entrance. There are 2 buses running into town and so when we didn't feel like walking we just hopped into one.

We can't recommend Leonardo's house enough and are much looking forward to revisiting Siena, and when we do we will certainly stay here again!

Thanks, Leonardo, for this very memorable stay.
