Casina di Aki is a lovely, ground floor Tuscan villa which stands alone in a little hamlet just a few minutes drive from the medieval town of Monteriggioni and within easy reach of Siena and San Gimingnano.
To the back of the cottage, in a small, private garden there is a pretty pool. The garden is well maintained and provides a perfect place to relax in peace under the warm Tuscan sun. It is completely protected by a wall to one side and a hedge to the other which provide it some privacy from the neighbouring properties.
In one corner of the garden is a little table with two chairs, shaded by a large tree. This is a wonderful spot to dine al fresco. A few steps away is a stone barbeque. The garden is accessed via a gate next to the front door of the villa.
Inside the well restored, stone and terracotta villa there is a large open plan room which is divided into two areas by a huge, original terracotta arch and a couple of steps. Immediately on entering there is a lounge with a fireplace in one corner and a double sofa. To the back of the room is a small bathroom  with an open shower with no shower tray.
To the other side of the arch is the dining room. It is furnished with a long, narrow wooden table, with a bench to one side, in traditional Tuscan villa style. The other side of the table has three chairs. Next to it is a sideboard with television. While a cupboard stocked with crockery and glassware rests against the far wall. Plenty of light is provided by the window which looks out to the unpaved hamlet road where an occasional resident car may pass.
On the opposite side of the room from the window is a small dividing wall, which leads into the simple kitchen. It includes gas hobs and a small fridge with no freezer. Throughout villa there are the typical Tuscan villa ceilings of wooden beam with terracotta Tiles.
A door off the dining room leads into the spacious double bedroom, with a window that also looks out to the hamlet road. The room is simply furnished with an iron bed and a wooden double wardrobe. En-suite is a lovely bathroom with a tub that has a handheld shower.
There are other villas around Casina di Aki, however it is in a peaceful position and there is good privacy in the garden.
A main road is not far away, but it cannot be seen, although there may be some traffic noise. This also provides the villa with an excellent position for sightseeing.
There are no views from the property.

Pool Info

The pool is located immediately behind the villa, in a small but pretty, shady garden that is partly walled and partly hedged. The pool area has reasonable privacy thanks to the many plants and tall hedge around it, there are a couple of neighbouring villa who can see from the top floors to the pool area.
To one side of the pool there are a couple of deck chairs shaded by an umbrella. While at the other end are two sunbeds ideal to relax and soak up the warm Tuscan sun, although there are no views. In a corner of the garden is a stone barbeque and a table with chairs to dine al fresco.
The pool is 4x8 metres and 0.9-1.9 metres deep. It is chlorine cleansed with roman steps on one side to enter. It is open from April to September, weather permitting.

Pros Bonjour, 


Nous tenons absolument part ce mail à féliciter les propriétaires de la casa Di aki! Nous avons reçu un accueil plus que chaleureux! Un cadeaux de bienvenue nous attendais. .. Un super tiramisu fait maison. ... délicieux! De plus, bien que nous n'avions pas commandé le panier de bienvenue, il y avait dans le frigo, du lait, du jus d'orange, de la bolognaise, du pain, des oeufs, des pâtes. ... Toutes les épices, huiles, papier essuie tout, papier wc, sac poubelles. ... C'est la première fois que nous louons une villa si bien équipée. .. Rien ne manquais! De plus, les propriétaires nous envoient quasi chaque jours un sms pour demander si tout va bien, s'il ne manque rien ainsi que des idées de visites et promenades dans le coin! Nous recevons également régulièrement des oeufs frais de leurs poules! Magnifique et tellement gentil! La première question à été si nous avions le nécessaire pour notre chien et cela nous a beaucoup touché car ce genre d'attention est très très rare! 

En tout cas, un grand chapeau pour ces personnes et vraiment, la casa di aki est à recommander à tout vous clients potentiels! Merci beaucoup et bon week end

Pros Super netter Vermieter, hat sich um mehr als alles gekuemmert. Sogar ein Kuchen wurde gebacken fuer uns, frische Eier von den ansässigen Huenern :-) Reservierung im Restaurant und und und......

Die Lage ist super, alles was man sich traeumt in unmittelbarer Naehe

Der Pool, das Haus der Service, ein Traum
Einfach alles perfekt.
Local attractions Monterregioni, Siena und und und... Die Namen der Restaurants weiss ich leider nicht. Es lohnt sich auf jeden Fall alles zu probieren, auch im Supermarkt selbst Lebensmittel kaufen und grillen oder kochen, alles ist megafrisch und lecker.
