Quercialaia is a wonderfully rustic cottage located 4km from Siena with great access to the city via public transport. In its carefully restored glory it sits on the edge of a small sleepy hamlet, from where it has wonderful views of the Tuscan hills. The private garden has a well maintained English lawn and sun chairs.

There is a large infinity pool with hydromassage and superb views below the cottage. Next to the pool there is a small enclave ideal for preparing light meals to enjoy by the poolside. The retaining walls around the pool area are in old terracotta giving a warm and friendly ambience.


The cottage is on 2 floors. You enter into a lounge that has a sofa bed. In this room there is also a dining room table. On the right of the room there are 2 arches which lead into the kitchen area. The fully equipped kitchen has an antique stone sink.

From the lounge elegant travertine steps lead up to the bedroom. This room has characteristic wooden beams and terracotta tiles on the ceiling. Doors lead out onto a small balcony from where you have a beautiful view of the valley below and hills beyond. There is a small bathroom with an open shower, similar to a wet room.

We have included this property in the private pool section although the owner's family may make occasional use of the pool. The pool is at a lower level than the cottage and hamlet, therefore it can be seen by the neighbours.


In the cottage there is an airconditioning unit in the bedroom. The use is free of charge.
The garden is automatically irrigated in the mornings.


Internet WI-FI available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.

Pool Info


The infinity pool is a on the slope below the house. From it there are wonderful views of the valley below the property and the field covered hills beyond. At one end there is a hydromassage which can sooth away all the stress of a day of sight seeing.

The pool uses a salt-water electrolysis system, which, as well as requiring little maintenance, is very good for the skin as it remains clorine free. There is sun on the pool and surrounding area most of the day. 
The pool is 10 x 5.5m and open from June to September.

Correct mais sans plus. L'objectif de notre séjour était le repos et le farniente au bord de la piscine. Si sur les premiers jours la propreté de la superbe piscine à débord etait au rendez-vous, cela s'est dégradé au fur et à mesure jusqu'à ce que l'eau soit verte à la fin de la semaine. Toutes les nuits, au son des aboiements des chiens (je ne pensais pas qu'un chien pouvait aboyer la nuit entière...), se finalisaient a 4h30 du matin par le bruit extrêment fort de l'ouverture d'une porte de garage coulissante en bois attenante à la chambre. A part ces inconvénients remarquables, le propriétaire est très gentil meme s'il ne pratique que l'italien. Le gîte est ancien, et outre le canapé qui sent le vieux chien, et la douche qui n'accepte pas les gens de plus d'1m90, il reste confortable et bien équipé. Nous avons quand même à coup de grasse mat et de siestes pu profiter de nos vacances dans un cadre vraiment très beau et très calme (seulement le jour). ATTENTION, il est mentionné piscine privée sur le site, mais la famille du propriétaire l'a utilisé un soir en week-end.
Local attractions Sienne est absolument divine!

OWNER COMMENT: We are very sorry to hear of the disturbances. Unfortunately the noise of the neighbours garage and barking dogs are out of our control. The pool did discolour at one point due to the high heat. But once the PH levels are corrected it becomes clear again. The sofa will be renewed next season. We do apologise that our son used the pool without informimng us.

Mijn man en ik hebben samen met onze 17jarige dochter een heerlijke week gehad in Quercialaia! Huisje was goed koel te houden met luiken voor de ramen, goed geslapen in slaapkamer met airco en goed bed. Tuin met veel privacy en volledig omheind, ideaal voor onze twee honden die mee waren. Vooral genoten van het heerlijke zwembad, prachtig schoon helder water en vanuit het zwembad fantastisch uitzicht! Avonds is het zwembad prachtig te verlichten, sprookjesachtig gewoon! Dus ook in het donker onder de maan nog heerlijk kunnen zwemmen. Eigenaar is ontzettend vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Een adres om naar terug te keren!

Het zwembad was prachtig, mooi gelegen en groot.
Echter de foto's doen vermoeden dat het huis landelijk is gelegen, maar dat is niet zo. Het huis ligt vlak bij de snelweg. Vanuit het huis kan er niet gewandeld worden.
Daarnaast hadden wij echt last van de buurman die 's ochtends tussen 4 en 5 uur zijn garage opent. Ook de honden in de omgeving zorgden voor veel overlast. We konden niet met het raam open slapen.
De slaapbank beneden was echt slecht. Keihard en schuin aflopend. We hebben hem moeten stutten en steunen met boeken en pannen.
Het huisje was prima, maar de foto's geven een ander sfeerbeeld.

Wer Ruhe sucht, ist hier definitiv fehl am Platz.
Für Leute, die das Haus rein zum Schlafen nutzen möchten und täglich ganztägig unterwegs sind, eventuell o.k. (wenn einem der Lärm bellender Hunde und das tägliche (!) "Morgenritual" des Nachbarns, nämlich zwischen 04:00 und 05.00 Uhr die direkt neben dem Schlafzimmer dran gebaute Garage zu öffnen, nichts ausmacht).
Auch während des Tages ist der Aufenthalt im schönen Garten und bei der wundervollen Poolanlage durch Motorsägen und Rasenmäher gestört. Das ist wirklich schade.
Local attractions Im Ort selbst, Taverna D'Arbia, nichts Besonderes zu erwähnen. Der Supermarkt Coop jedoch bietet alles, was das italienische Herz begehrt, tolle Antipasti, sehr gute Weine und alle Lebensmittel und Haushaltsartikel, die man braucht. Obwohl im Haus selbst alles da ist: von Putzmitteln über Putztücher, hin zu Waschpulver (man kann die Waschmaschine benutzen!), Geschirrspülmittel, Handseifen, Toilettenpapier... Diese Dinge muss man nicht besorgen! Das ist wirklich angenehm! Die Lage des Ortes direkt an der SS ist idealer Augangspunkt für Ausflüge in den Süden oder auch in das Chianti Gebiet, da zentral gelegen. Die SS selbst hört man Gott sei dank nicht ....

There was minimal information about the property,local amenities. we discovered details using ipads. The pool is fantastic, although further from property than we thought. Unfortunately we were plagued by mosquitos the whole week. It was impossible to use sunbeds by the pool as they were in a corner swarming with mosquitos and ants. We made use of the table and chairs. Pool was cleaned daily. Patio and garden were great but again mosquitos were a problem. Kitchen adequate with gas hobs. No kettle. Bed was uncomfortable. It has wooden head and footboard and being tall I could not get comfortable as my feet hit the end. Sheets and pillows were inadequate as they were poor quality and not wide enough to extend over the edge of the mattress. Bathroom satisfactory, floor was slippery when wet. Rooms got hot and unfortunately we kept the shutters closed to try to minimise the mosquitos. We were bitten most nights despite our efforts and use of aerosols. Air conditioning on constantly during night and struggled to keep bedroom cool. Lounge area on ground floor was hot and would have been uncomfortably if 3rd person had slept there. Neighbour was noisy and his garage is on same level as bedroom so we were woken at 4 am every morning as he started moving. Views across the countryside are fantastic and it is fairly quiet during the day. Dogs bark at length on and off. Overall property is lovely and with minor improvements could be better. Separate BBQ, which we used, and laundry block in the grounds. Would say property is for mobile people only as stairs leading upstairs, steps down to pool and low ceiling and slippery flooring in bathroom can make it challenging.
Local attractions We caught bus into Siena from road near property 4Euros each. There is a narrow alley in buildings that is a short cut to road that a neighbour showed us. Taverna diArbia has a modern high street with a few shops, pharmacy, pasta shop and florist. Basic café near launderette at bottom of hill. Good Coop supermarket also at bottom of hill. If you go over the roundabout at this point and walk past the garage you enter a one way area and there is first a pizza restaurant which looked good and does takaways. Further down the same road is a fantastic restaurant with outside garden at the rear. Young waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. Superb food and wines. You may have to book as it was very busy especially on a weekend. Siena was a great place to visit and walk around the ancient city and buildings.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. There were a lot of mosquitoes due to the hot weather and climate. A new washing machine has been added. The owner confirms there is a kettle - we are sorry you did not find this. They will check the quality of the linen and pillows and renew if necessary. They would have happily provided more had they known. The bed is an antique bed so is slightly smaller in length to normal. The owner apologises for any neighbouring noises that may have disturbed you.

Precies wat we hadden verwacht, een klein, maar prachtig huis met een heerlijke tuin met uitzicht over de omgeving. Heerlijk zwembad om af te koelen. Eigenaar erg aardig en behulpzaam en met handen en voeten kom je een eind. Hij reed ons voor in zijn Fiat Topolino uit 1949 naar een heerlijke pizzeria in Siena. Het onderhoud aan de tuin, zwembad en omgeving dagelijks, zonder dat het aan privacy inboet.

Die Lage des Hauses ist sehr schön. Der Garten , der Pool alles gut gepflegt. Natürlich darf man nicht vergessen das man in einem sehr, sehr alten Gemäuer Urlaub macht.
Für Puristen der Ideale Platz, für Leute die doch etwas mehr Komfort erwarten, würde ich es nicht weiter empfehlen. Es feuchtelt etwas im Haus. Das Bad ist ok aber die Dusche ist echt abenteuerlich....der Teil des Badezimmers wo Toilette und Bidet sind ist nach einer Dusche patsch nass. Das Haus hat seinen Charme und die Details... wie z.b. der alte Waschstein in der Küche sind echt urig . Es gibt auch einen großen offenen Kamin der zum einheizen einlädt.....
Der Garten und der sehr große Pool.....der leider etwas unterhalb des Hauses liegt sind sehr gepflegt.......die Ruhe die man dort genießen kann sucht seinesgleichen.
Da das Haus sehr nahe zu den wichtigsten Verbindungstrassen liegt ist man sehr schnell z.b in Siena das nur wenige Autominuten entfernt ist und eine wirkliche Attraktion in der Toskana darstellt. Wer die Toskana kennt der weiß wie herrlich dieses Stück Land ist...

Das Ferienhaus ist klein aber fein, alles war sauber und ordentlich. In der Küche waren alle Gewürze und Reinigungsmittel vorhanden. Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt und der Pool so schön erfrischend. 2x waren kurz auch andere Leute am Pool aber dies war gar nicht störend. Der Vermieter sowie Claudio haben sich freundlich erkundigt wie es uns geht, ohne dabei aufdringlich zu sein. Wir erhielten sogar einen Tip zur Weinverkostung(Dievole), sehr zu empfehlen. Nach Siena braucht man nur 10 min mit dem Auto, die Lage ist also perfekt. Ich kann das Objekt nur empfehlen.
Einziges Manko sind wirklich die Nachbarn die pünktlich und täglich um 5 Uhr ihr Schiebetor öffnen.

Wir sind total begeistert. Wir wurden unkompliziert aber herzlich empfangen. Das Haus ist super nett, klein aber fein. Der Garten und Pool sind herrlich gepflegt und im Haus ist alles was man braucht. Und sollten die Handtücher nicht reichen muss man es einfach sagen und es werden welche gebracht. Am 2. Tag kam Mama mit einem köstlichen Kuchen und Claudio ist immer sehr bemüht dass alles passt und dabei überhaupt nicht aufdringlich. Dass ab und zu junge Leute am Pool sind war überhaupt kein Problem, ganz im Gegenteil. Wir würden jederzeit wieder hinfahren um eine herrliche Woche in einem sehr schönen herzlichen Ambiente zu verbringen. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit!

Wunderschön eingerichtete Ferienwohnung und toll gestalteter Garten und Poolbereich. Man sollte evtl in der Beschreibung erwähnen, das sogar eine Waschmaschine da ist. Wir können auch die schlechte Meinung des Bades nicht nachvollziehen, da man bereits auf den Fotos sieht, dass es nicht das Größte ist. Es ist zugegebenermaßen etwas abenteuerlich zu duschen, macht aber Spaß.
Nicht gefallen wäre übertrieben aber: a) die Matratze ist etwas durchgelegen, b) die nachbargarage ist direkt angebaut, was nicht förderlich ist, wenn man etwas ausschlafen möchte, c) permanentes Hundegebell aus allen Himmelsrichtungen (nicht in unmittelbarer Nähe)
Local attractions Natürlich Siena, dort sollte man bei La Mossa (gut gelegen bei humanen Preisen und toller Qualität) und auch bei Trattoria La Torre (definitiv kultig) vorbeischauen

This villa has a good location in that it is in a quiet area to one side of Siena, but yet with easy access to Siena itself, and local transport links (a dual carriage being very close for getting to much of Tuscany). There is a bus for Siena that goes from just over the main road direct to the centre.

The villa was clean inside, and for 2 people had good space allowance. The kitchen has all utensils you may need, and having a dishwasher is a definite bonus. You can park a car easily near the villa too. Garden was very neat and tidy and looked after. We sat and read in the garden a few times and it was very pleasant.
The bathroom was not great because of the design and in particular, the shower. If you are used to wet rooms, this may be ok but we weren't, and we just found it got dirty very quickly and everything was wet from using the shower.

If you are 5ft10 (178cm) like me, you may also find some difficulties as there are low roofs in the bathroom, but also the bed is not full size and if you sleep straight, this can be an issue.

We did have lots of ants everywhere too, but that was noted in many other reviews, and be wary to take some form of bug spray to avoid being bitten. Mosquito nets (as mentioned in other reviews) would be a real bonus to this villa. Make sure food is put away in storage.

The pool looks very nice but it was also very cold and ants all around the surrounds - we only used it twice during our visit (even when the sun is out).
Local attractions Nice restaurants in Siena. Lots of small hillside towns and villages at most 1 hour from it (Montepulciano was our favourite).
