Limonaia is a small, semi-detached, simple Tuscan villa located on one end of the building of Palazzo a Merse. Outside the large, arched French door it has a pretty, wisteria covered pergola which shades a table with two chairs.
Inside the bright and spacious villa there is an open plan room with a wooden mezzanine floor and Tuscan charm provided by the original exposed stone wall. On the lower level, immediately on entering is a sitting area with a double sofa and television.
In the centre of the room is a wooden dining table with four chairs, while a large cupboard to one side is fully stocked with crockery and cooking utensils. The kitchenette is against the far wall. It is in traditional Tuscan villa style with a travertine work surface and sink. It has gas hobs, an oven and a small fridge with internal icebox. A door to the back of the room leads out to the parking area. Behind the kitchenette is a bathroom with shower.
The bedroom is on the mezzanine floor. It is a romantic double room with a sloped wood and terracotta ceiling, while light is provided by a large window. There is an antique wooden wardrobe on the floor.
Limonaia is on the far end of the building, closest to the passing road so some traffic noise can be heard while under the pergola, however the road cannot be seen.

Location: Palazzo a Merse

Palazzo a Merse is an antique watermill restored to an excellent standard and divided into 7 independent villas. It is located in the countryside South of Siena within easy reach of the beautiful medieval city.
In the simple, shady but pretty garden there is a sparkling pool ideal to cool off after a day of sightseeing and to relax under the warm Tuscan sun. All around the garden there is a hedge providing privacy, to the other side are fields and forest covered hills. Within walking distance from the property there is a spot in the passing river where it is possible to swim.
The property is composed of 4 rental villas, a two bedroom B&B, one permanent resident and the two apartments of the co-owners, who both reside there with their small, young families. The owners are available for assistance to guests should it be required.
There is some limited traffic noise from the main road a short distance away, however this road cannot be seen due to the vegetation around the property. The neighbour's cats often visit the property.

Pool Info

The pool is located in the property garden to the back of the houses. The shady garden provides plenty of shade to relax out of the sun while the pool enjoys a position in full sun. It is a slightly raised pool surrounded by a pretty stone wall and has roman steps to enter.
Near the pool and dotted around the garden are sunbeds. There are limited views due to the position of Palazzo a Merse on the valley floor and hedging around the garden. The pool is shared also with the owners and their young families.
It is 11x4 metres and 1-1.5 metres deep. It's open from April to October, weather permitting. Pool towels can be provided for an extra fee.

Stay: August 2014
Pros Der wunderbare Garten mit Zitronen- und Walnussbäumen. Die hervorragende Betreuung durch den Vermieter. Die Ferienwohnung selbst ist absolut in Ordnung. Für zwei Personen sehr geräumig. Es fehlte in der Küche an nichts (ausser vielleicht Biergläser). Das Bad sehr geräumig und komfortabel. Alles in allem haben wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt.















Cons Die in der Nähe befindliche Straße stört ein wenig, ist aber nicht dramatisch.
Local attractions Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Monterreggione usw. Pizzeria in Brenna (super) und in Siena das Restaurant Sotto le Fonti (Via Esterna di Fontebranda 118)

Pros + schöne Ferienwohnung, die genau den Bildern entspricht
+ mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet; schönes, sauberes Bad
+ sehr liebevolle, hilfsbereite und unkomplizierte Vermieter, die bei Fragen stets zur Seite stehen und einige Tipps für die Toskana bereit halten.
+ wunderschöner, gepflegter Garten mit Pool, Hängematte, Zitronenbäumen und vielen Sitzmöglichkeiten
+ Siena ist in 20 Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Auch andere Ziele wie Florenz sind per Tagesausflug gut erreichbar
Cons - bei der Küchenausstattung fehlte es an scharfen Messer und Kochlöffeln. Sonst war aber alles vorhanden.
Local attractions - Lieblingsausflugsziele: Siena: tolle Stadt, nicht so überlaufen wie Florenz, schöner Dom, toller Wochenmarkt Mittwochs morgens von 8-13 Uhr in der Nähe des Fußballstadions; Florenz: wundervolle Stadt, aber überlaufen mit vielen Touristen - Ristorante Vecchio Tinaio Sas in Brenna (ca. 5 Autominuten von der Ferienwohnung entfernt): sehr leckere Pizza, familiäre Atmosphäre, relativ günstig - Ristorante Cateni in Orgia: nur 3 Autominuten von der Ferienwohnung entfernt. Pizza gibt es nur an manchen Tagen. Das andere Menü ist relativ teuer. Aber sehr schöne Aussicht und schön gelegen.
