Quercialaia, Taverne d'Arbia - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 to 3 people Private Pool 4 - Very good - Very good 4

This compact villa on the fringes of Siena punches above its weight with spacious living areas, a shady patio, sunny lawn and a generous-sized private pool. Beautifully restored, this property, best suited to a couple or a family of three, has some lovely rustic features, such as the graceful brick arches that open onto the kitchen, with its antique stone sink, and the large open fireplace in the lounge-diner, which are enhanced by the earthy hues of the wooden beams and herringbone terracotta tiles. The features continue upstairs with honeycomb tiles on the floor, a big wooden bed and a balcony on which to take a morning stretch with classic views of the Tuscan countryside.

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.

Approach road - 100m very good unpaved road

There is plenty of space outside, too. A shaded brick patio, set with a table and chairs, provides an alternative option to dining indoors. It leads to the lush lawn where you can idle on the sun loungers. Or follow the path and stairs down to the sparkling pool (with hydromassage feature) set a short distance away from the villa in a private garden area. The pool is framed by trees and bushes, and you’ll also find a sink and cooking area for rustling up snacks.

Our Thoughts
Tucked away in the countryside, yet on the edge of one of Tuscany’s must-see cities, Siena, Quercialaia is brilliantly located. But that’s not its only asset; this is a gorgeous property offering more than its modest size might suggest. The living area is enhanced by those sweeping arches which let the sunshine flood in, and outside you have plenty of spots to relax in, with the balcony, terrace, lawn and pool. On cooler nights, we think you’ll find it hard to resist snuggling up around the large open fire. Top tip: Siena is easily accessible by public transport.

One bedroom, one bathroom, en-suite. The sofa-bed in the lounge can be turned into a single bed.  The pool and its position on a lower level of the hamlet, means it is overlooked by neighbouring properties.
There is 100m of very good unpaved road to access the villa.

The salt water pool is located below Quercialaia and reached down a flight of stone steps. It is entered by Roman steps and is a good size but too deep for non-swimming children. It’s also exposed to the sun for most of the day. Pool size: 10m x 5.5m, 1.20m-2.4m deep. Open June-September, weather permitting.
