About Massimiliano Bosio

Banking Manager, married, 2 children. After several years in Siena we moved to Milan, but as soon as we can we take refuge in our country home.

Massimiliano Bosio purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why Massimiliano Bosio chose Val d'Arbia - Crete Senesi

Moved for work in another city, I decided to rent my house for short periods

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The thing that most impressed us when we decided to buy it is the opportunity to dine outdoors and admire the hills and enjoying the colors of the sunset, with the sun going down in front of the private garden.

Perfect holiday rental in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Podere Cartofico and found the property to be an ideal base. The house itself is stylish and very spacious. The kitchen is well equipped. The nearest town is a 10 min drive away with supermarkets and shops. The pool is a good size and was never crowded, with plenty of seats and sunloungers around it. The location is perfect with beautiful views of the Sienese countryside yet within a 20 min drive from Siena itself. Driving around the area brought picturesque views with every turn and we enjoyed visiting the hill towns, particularly Montalcino and Montepulciano, which, in our opinion beat the more crowded ones that are south of Florence. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property. Finally, Nicoletta who met us and arranged our check in/out was very friendly and accommodating - thanks Massimiliano for a great week in Tuscany!

Perfect location to visit Siena (of course) but also Arezzo was very nice, Cortona, Firenze,.....wonderful!

The house was also very clean!

Schönes, ruhiges Ferienhaus vor den Toren Sienas

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in dem sauberen und perfekt ausgestatteten Haus im toskanischen Stil. Netter Empfang und Verabschiedung durch Nicoletta. Das Haus mit seinen dicken Wänden kann Mitte/Ende Mai noch ziemlich kalt sein, auch wenn es draußen schon sehr warm ist. Es ist ideal für Familien mit Kindern. Für Erwachsene ist das Schlafzimer im Dachgeschoss weniger geeignet. Die Kaffeemaschine ist ein Espressokocher. Die zweckmäßige, schöne Einrichtung und der großzügige Garten haben uns den Aufenthalt sehr angenehm gemacht. Vielen Dank für alles an Massimo!

Peaceful luxury apartment in the middle of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, full equipped apartment on a small hill close to Siena.

Especially for families with children, I'd warmly recommend this apartment. There is a lot of space to enjoy the vacation. A small garden belongs to the apartment as well. It was a unforgettable stay.

Beautiful House in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to stay in this apartment. It's very clean, has everything you need and even more.

The private big garden has a large dining table and is a nice place to have a glass of wine and relax while watching the sunset

The pool area has panoramic views on the Tuscan hills, the location is perfect to visit Siena, Florence, Arezzo, and also other small villages less touristy but very romantic and quiet; we also spent a very relaxing day in the nearby spa of Rapolano.

We loved everything about our stay and the owner was very professional and efficient. We plan on coming back

Lovely place near Siena

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 week stay at this beautiful place, with our 2 kids of 1 and 3 years old. 20 minute drive to Siena, perfect. In the house is everything you need (kitchen appliances etc). Nice garden incl furniture and we enjoyed the pool.

House was clean and the owner very service oriented.

The farm is perfectly located for quick access to the major art cities of Tuscany: Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Perugia; is also located very close to the road 'Chiantigiana' (SS 222), which connects Castelnuovo Berardenga in Florence through beautiful olive groves and vineyards that leads to the cellars of some of the most important and award-winning producers of Tuscan wines.

In the neighborhood you can visit the thermal baths of Rapolano and the Valdichiana Outlet Village mall for shopping.

Ideal location for cycling, mountain biking, running, walking
