“Great escape”

Fabulous secluded location within easy access of many facilities & the gorgeous Tuscan towns & valleys. Incredibly hot whilst we were there air conditioning would be a great future addition.
Blended into the hillside & wooded area , we had many interesting visitors including deer & lots of interesting birds. Unfortunately the location also means many insects & mosquitoes. Not a problem just get prepared with repellents or bite creams if you are adverse to bug killing. Spent hours relaxing & imagining the continued progress of the fab property.
Would definitely return to see how Cristina continues to develop the property.
As a landlady she was great. Left us in peace but was easily available if needed.
As always sad to leave the beautiful region of Tuscany.

“Zen out of Ten”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking for space, peace, and privacy in a rural location just outside the small town of Rosia, and about a 15 minute drive from Siena. There is no public transport so having your own car is essential.

The property is more a barn than a cottage, and renovated to a high standard providing modern accommodation and a comfortable stay. The website photographs depict an accurate presentation of the wonderful space and light of this unique place. Outside there is also a large area to sit and relax.

The owner, Cristina, was very friendly and helpful both before and upon our arrival (we stayed for a week in April). In addition to her ‘meet and greet’ she provided useful information on local restaurants and shops. (Do check on shop opening times as they may differ from what you are accustomed to!)

In summary, this is a lovely place which we would gladly recommend to others; both for it’s uniqueness and value for money. Enjoy!

“A peaceful very private property !”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at the Zen Cottage for a week. The gated location was great for getting to many fabulous little towns and the best wine areas in the world. (Montalcino and Montipulciano to name a few)
We particularly enjoyed coming back at the end of a busy day to complete peace and quiet !
This cottage is truly Zen - completely renovated in the past few years, and equally as good as the pictures on the web site. We did expect more fruit trees, but they were not in bloom at this time. We especially enjoyed the openess with the windows allowing lots of sunlight throughout the cottage. To be fair, it took us a few days to get used to windows that had no coverings especially in the morning when we might have wanted to sleep. Our only suggestion to Christina was to replace white folding chairs with more comfortable chairs , where we had breakfast and sometimes a snack or dinner once. This unit would not work for anyone with disabilities or knee issues as the bedroom is on the second floor up a steep stair case and the bathroom is on the first floor. For us, it was not an issue.
Christina, owner was the best at answering all our questions and giving us suggestions/directions to local and other Itlay locations. She answered every email, call, and was completely attentive. She made our arrival easy meeting us at a convenient location for us to follow her to the property.
All in all - This is a great place to stay is you are looking for a great location close to Siena in the heart of Tuscany.

“Peaceful, excellent location”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here for a week in July. The property is very new and constructed to a high modern standard and, for us, it was a pleasure to enjoy time relaxing there. It really is a peaceful and quiet property, with no other adjoining properties (you have complete privacy), and I would really recommend it. Also, the description of the property is 100% accurate.

It's easy to find by car and is located just a few minutes drive from the small town of Rosia, with the usual collection of facilities. Around the area are some rather nice restaurants, again, easily reachable by car (few minutes). Siena, of course, is only 10-15 minutes away.

All in all, we liked it a lot!

“Peaceful, spacious and surrounded by nature”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This past December my wife and I spent 25 days in Siena and this was our favourite accommodation. This independent house is literally surrounded by nature and you can feel it right being inside as it has a super large window with a direct view over a beautiful tree forest.
This is an ideal spot to relax and breath an authentic tuscan atmosphere.
The service was fantastic and Cristina, the Owner, was super helpful.
You would definitely need a car and you can find all sort of services and shops at the near Village of "Rosia" which is only 1 km away
