Istieto, Siena

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 people Private Pool 4 - Very good - Very good 4

Istieto is a gorgeous property and the perfect base for a family or friends looking for that classic Tuscan experience. You can relax in the beautiful gardens or by the pool – both of which offer graceful views of hills smothered with olive groves. And, when the heat of the day builds up, you can simply retreat to either the arched stone terrace or the exquisitely furnished cool interior of the lounge.

You'll be struck by the opulent interior decoration with its colour scheme of cerulean blue, candelabra, linen-covered furniture, carpets and tapestries. Deep, sunken sofas and armchairs could almost swallow a large family and you could be forgiven for thinking that you have inadvertently booked into a stately home. French doors are a real feature of Istieto, allowing natural light to flood the property and providing you with easy access to garden, pool and a covered terrace where you can dine al fresco. Siena is on the doorstep but distant enough for you to explore the town and then beat a retreat to the countryside.

Our Thoughts
Istieto is a wonderful property, perhaps suited to couples. The arched stone terrace is perfect for breakfast as the day starts to warm up. You may have to toss a coin over who gets either bedroom – natural light floods these rooms and they offer superb views and both have French doors opening out into the gardens.

Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms, one en-suite. The property is on the ground floor and the owners live in the apartment above. The gardens can be overlooked by owners and neighbours The double beds cannot be converted into twins. Terrace to rear of villa with table and chairs.

The pool is reached via a flight of stone steps and is surrounded by a terracotta sundeck, furnished with sun loungers and parasols. The pool is fenced and the water is entered by a handrail and steps at the shallow end – it is too deep for unsupervised non-swimming children. The owners occasionally use the pool.
Pool size: 14m x 7m, 1.2m-2.4m deep. Open May through October, weather permitting.
