If you want to stay in a corner of no touristic and wilder Tuscany in a tiny village in the midst of the wood between Siena and Grosseto, this place is ok for you. In this difficult period we are keeping high level cleaning in the apartment. We are following the guidelines provided by Airbnb and we are maintaining a longer interval between reservations. The apartment is located in a portion of the large house of my parents. It has its separate entrance and my guests will have their privacy.
“My husband and I spent a week in Patrizia's apartment and really enjoyed our time there. Iesa is such a quiet, charming little town so it was really easy to relax and disconnect. The highway is only a 5-10 min drive and we were able to easily make day trips to Florence, the Saturnia thermal baths, Montalpulciano and the coast. We really enjoyed have a cozy home to come back to each night and Patrizia and her mom made sure we were well taken care of. They even left us some little snacks for our arrival which were delicious! The bed was really comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, water pressure was good and stayed hot through both of our showers, and we were able to park our car securely inside their gate. If you're looking for a local, relaxing stay, this is an amazing home base for exploring Tuscany!”
Iesa is a small old village surrounded by nature. It is the perfect starting point for daily excursions to some of the most beautiful places you can visit in Tuscany. Enjoy the quiet and the calm of an old village in our charming country cottage.
“We spent 5 days in Iesa. The zone = Iesa is the ideal starting point to explore both nature (Farma and Merse Nature Reserve, valid both for excursions and to plunge into clear waters) that history and architecture (Siena, San Galgano, Chiusdino , Murlo, to name just a few places). The Terme di Petriolo can be reached in 15 minutes by car, in an hour by car you are at the seaside in Follonica. It is a village of a few houses with a bar / grocery. The pharmacy and the nearest ATM are about 10 km away in Monticiano. Communication with the host = Timely, precise and concise communications. Upon arrival we found a welcome welcome basket with oil, jam, honey, wine and fresh fruit. The house = It is a wonderful country house finely restored with a spacious private garden with barbecue and a pergola for eating outside and in the shade. The kitchen is equipped with all the accessories to cook, the beds are comfortable, free parking for the essential car in front of the house. Who is it for = nature lovers, for those looking for an oasis of tranquility away from the city and everyday stress. Thank you, Luca and Guia, for your hospitality!”

“This apartment in Tocchi is fabulous. If you want to stay in an old castle, in a little Italian village and disconnect from technology and just enjoy your surroundings then this is a must. Luciana and Federico were very welcoming - you drive through the village of Tocchi to the Castle to find the apartment. It had a lovely kitchen with enough food to keep you going for a day or so, super comfortable bed, sitting room and lovely bathroom. We were able to travel to Siena in 30 minutes and then other surrounding villages like Montepulciano, Pienza and the Valle D'Orcia easily. We also saw various stops on the Via Francigena plus your typical tuscan scenes. Perfect! Thank you!”
