Granaio is a simple, spacious, ground floor villa at the end of the building, opposite the pool. Outside there is a small private terrace furnished with a wooden table and chairs to enjoy meals al fresco.
Going inside there is a pretty kitchen in traditional Tuscan villa style with a travertine work surface and sink. It is a bright room and equipped with gas hobs, an oven and a small fridge with internal ice box.
In a corner of the room is an antique wooden dining table with a bench and three chairs. Like the rest of the house this room is paved with the original terracotta floor.
Passing through an exposed stone arch there is the sitting area. To one side is a large sideboard fully stocked with crockery and other kitchen utensils. Against the far wall is a day bed which cannot be used for extra people, and a simple single sofa. A spiral staircase provides access to a tiny, wooden mezzanine floor where there is an extra bed, only suitable for children. Off the lounge is a bathroom with shower.
To the back of the villa there are the two bedrooms. On the left is a double room which can be set up as a twin if requested when booking. Character is provided to the room by the exposed, original villa stone wall and ceiling of terracotta and wooden beams. In a corner there an open wardrobe with a rail for hanging space and a shelf.
To the other side of the little hall is a second double bedroom, which can also be made into a twin if requested when booking. This is a very bright room with glass doors providing access to the car park. It has a beautiful exposed original terracotta arch and stone wall. In the room is a large wardrobe with mirror and an en-suite bathroom with shower.
2 double rooms, which can be set up as twins if requested when booking.
The extra bed cannot be used for a fifth person.

Resort: 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.

Geräumige und gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung. Sehr herzlicher und familiärer Empfang durch Margerita und Andrea, welche immer für Tipps und Rat zu Stelle waren. Durch die zentrale Lage gleich bei Siena optimal für Ausflüge in alle Ecken der Toskana.
Local attractions Unsere Restaurant-Empfehlung: Il Buon Sapore in San Rocco a Pilli (nicht mal 5min mit dem Auto). Aber auch die sonstigen Restaurants in den benachbarten Dörfern sind einen Besuch wert. Ausflugtipps: die Städte Volterra und Montalcino. Schöne Städte, nicht so überlaufen und mit wunderbarer Aussicht.
