Our building is named for Saint Catherine, the patron saint of Siena, and dates back to the early 1900s, as can be seen from dates carved upon the facade and in a niche which once held a statue of the saint.
Six of our apartments are on the ground floor and boast independent entrances; five others are on the first floor, access to which is gained from a central staircase. There is ample, comfortable parking only a few steps from the main entrance to the property. Guests are welcome to use an outdoor barbecue and children's playground.
Other amenities available to our guests include a 8x12 m pool with built in whirlpool area and plenty of room with lounge chairs for sun-bathing.
