Parker Villas Exclusive - A private pocket listing available nowhere else

La Vita represents a slice of Italian life that's not easily replicated. This welcoming home is set in a neighborhood on the northern outskirts of Siena. The historic center with numerous restaurants, cafes and quaint shops is within a 10 minute drive. Along with regular jaunts into Siena, the location is perfect for touring Chianti with the charming hill town of Castellina in Chianti and a number of quality wineries only 20 minutes away. Jumping on to the Siena to Florence toll-free highway makes it possible to reach San Gimignano or Florence's city center in 40 minutes.

Cottage la Vita is comprised of two cottages just a few feet from one another. A two bedroom cottage is at one end of the owner's larger villa, where your kind and very hospitable hosts reside with their family and pets. Just a few feet away is a spacious one bedroom annex with its own bathroom, sitting area and kitchenette. Comfortable gatherings and meals take place in the main, taverna style kitchen and dining room. The taverna is accessed from an outside garden entrance just a few feet from the cottage. While housed in the owner's villa, this kitchen has a private, external entrance and is only used by the Cottage la Vita guests.

The owners designed the estate with the intent of providing as much privacy as possible for their rental guests. Parker guests have the exclusive use of a private pool, seasonal hot tub and garden area overlooking the rolling Sienese hills found at the far end of the estate. The owners' outdoor area is at the opposite end of the grounds. Guests are welcome to help themselves to the bountiful fruit trees scattered about the property with ripe cherries in May, apricots in June, peaches in July and figs into August.

A friendly host family, an incredibly easy access road and close proximity to all the splendor of Siena make Cottage la Vita the perfect match for a first time traveler to Tuscany and for those preferring to admire the landscape without venturing too far into the terrain.

Inside, both the cottage and annex are fully air conditioned and offer screened windows. There is an abundance of Tuscan charm with pleasantly decorated rooms, a few country antiques and majolica tiled bathrooms. Cottage la Vita is strictly for non-smokers. Cleaning service may be requested at booking.

A bus stops just outside the estate's entrance gate with service into Siena running hourly. The ride takes about 25 minutes. Since the last bus returns from Siena at 7 pm and many of the fascinating hill towns and countryside destinations are not reachable by public transit, a car is needed to explore out and about.

The neighborhood road leads to the Siena to Florence highway in a third of a mile. This roadway makes it super easy to tour Florence, Siena and all the areas in between including Chianti. Siena's artisan shops, restaurants, gelaterie, pasticerrie and gorgeous Piazza del Campo, home of the famous Palio horse races are reached in a scant 10 minutes by car. The medieval walled village of Monteriggioni is within a 15 minute drive; Castellina in Chianti: 20; Radda in Chianti: 35; Florence, San Gimignano or Greve in Chianti: 40; Volterra, Montepulciano, Cortona or Arezzo: 60; Perugia: 80; Orvieto: 90; Lucca or Assisi: 100.
