Tinaio is a small, simple, ground floor Tuscan villa located in the central part of the main building of Palazzo a Merse. Immediately outside is a table and chairs shaded by a large tree to dine al fresco.
On entering the little villa is a bright open plan room with a kitchenette along one wall. The kitchen unit is in typical Tuscan villa style with travertine counter tops and sink, while curtains are used instead of cupboard doors. There are gas hobs and a small fridge with internal icebox. A modern dining table with two chairs completes the furnishings.
The original terracotta tiled floor paves the entire house while character is provided by the wood and terracotta tiled ceiling. A short corridor leads to the bathroom with shower and then onto the double bedroom. From this room there is a glass door providing access to the parking area.



Tinaio has the owners as neighbours on either side and above.
Note that there is no sofa in this villa however there is a table with chairs outside, therefore it's ideal mostly for the summer months.

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.

Pros Gastfreundlich. Sehr entsprechend gestaltet und echt toskanisch. Toller Garten! Super Vermieter!!! Hundefreundlich, gastfreundlich, hilfsbereit - sehr familiär!
Cons Schlechte Anfahrtsbeschreibung (exakte Adresse wäre hilfreich!!!), schwierig zu finden. Wohnung etwas dunkel und kühl aufgrund der Lage im Erdgeschoss.
Local attractions Hügellandschaft von La crete, Siena und so mancher Geheimtipp - der Geheimtipp bleiben soll.
