Following a road that climbs the hills of the Sienese Montagnola, there is a small ancient village which houses the remains of an ancient church and some houses inhabited partly by the owners. Here, surrounded by greenery and tranquility is this small cottage that sleeps up to 4 people and therefore suitable for a family or for two couples who want to have a relaxing holiday and at the same time have the opportunity to visit some of the most characteristic places of Tuscany such as Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, medieval villages and cities known all over the world. This ancient kiln has been recently carefully restored and converted into a comfortable 100 sqm cottage.

Area Information: The small village of Marmoraia, whose name derives from the presence in the area of the typical yellow Siena marble, is located in Montagnola, close to Casole d'Elsa. It consists of a few scattered houses and the beautiful Romanesque church dedicated to Saints Mary and Gervasio. Marmoraia was the site of a castle that was under the protection of the Republic of Siena: that lost its freedom in the year 1559, and this caused the decay of the village. The parish church of Marmoraia, which was built at the beginning of 'the eleventh century,' was more 'times remodeled:' The fascination that emanates this church consists in its simplicity and in the location, in the middle of the woods of the Montagnola

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.


Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
