Istieto is a wonderful ground floor Tuscan villa on the outskirts of Siena. Situated in pretty  manicured gardens Istieto offers lovely views of the surrounding countryside and olive groves. The city of Siena is only 3km away. The villa has terracotta tiled floors throughout and has been elegantly furnished and decorated.
Attached to the rear of the villa is a covered terrace with table and chairs. This is a lovely area to dine al-fresco while enjoying the pretty garden and views.  Approximately 10 metres away down a short flight of stone steps in the garden is the fenced pool.
Entry to the villa is directly into the lounge and diner. The lounge has been beautifully decorated and is very opulent. In the centre of the room are two double sofas with two matching armchairs arranged around a glass table. Along one wall is an impressive cupboard which contains a television with satellite and a DVD player.
Set to one side is a smartly dressed round dining table with four chairs. From here two sets of French double doors open out onto the terrace and garden.  Right of the dining area is a door leading to the kitchen.
The compact galley kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to prepare a traditional Tuscan meal. The kitchen is fitted with an oven, gas hobs, microwave, dishwasher and fridge with separate freezer compartment. The single window allows plenty of natural light to enter and offers more of the lovely views.
Right of the lounge is the first of the two bedrooms. This room is beautifully furnished with a double bed, large chest of drawers, glass corner cabinet, three chairs and a television.  Along the length of one wall is a triple mirrored wardrobe.  A set of French double doors allow access to the garden. This room benefits from an en-suite bathroom with tub and overhead shower.
Left of the lounge is the second and final bedroom. This room is full of natural light and is furnished with an iron double bed, bookshelf, triple wardrobe, chair and television. A set of double French doors open out into the garden.  Directly outside the room is a small bathroom with shower.

Stay: August 2014
Pros Ein schöner Garten mit Pool und ein sehr freundlicher und diskreter Vermieter
Cons Leider war es zu weit ausserhalb jeglicher Einkausmöglichkeiten und auch die Stadt Sienna war zu Fuss zu weit entfernt so dass wir immer mit dem Auto fahren mussten. Nachts war permanent Hundgebell zu hören was dazu führte dass man die Fenster schliessen musste. Dazu war es aber zu stickkig und im großen Schlafzimmer war es feucht und klamm. Es hat auch so gerochen.Da muss dringend was gegen unternommen werden!
Local attractions Ca. 38 km entfernt liegt das wunderschöne Städtchen Montalcino, sehr zu empfehlen ! Eine wunderschöne Aussicht da auf ca. 500 Meter Höhe und viele kleine Geschäfte und schöne Restaurants dort zu finden sind.

Pros This was an excellent villa with nice views, swimming pool and easy reach to Siena and to the main road routes to get out and about. The owners are lovely people and very helpful we would certainly be going back in the future.
Cons The very steep drive, but there is parking up the top too so
Local attractions Siena is a lovely toen and has plenty to do and see, the ice cream is to die for. But if you plan on doing more then hire a car as the surrounding are holds many hidden treasures.

To Tuscany team comments for this review:

15.10.2013
Unfortunately the dishwasher was broken by the previous tenants and not reported, the dishwasher was repaired as soon as possible, it was not possible to fix permanent fly screens for summer 2012 however they are fitted for 2013 season, the outside table is found under the loggia. The owner is available should anything be missing in the kitchen.
