Welcome to Casa Vacanze il Campo,
The Contrade, the Palio, the horses: these are 3 moments of an extraordinary experience renewing itself year after year respecting an ancient tradition that lives in the hearts of Siena’s people throughout the year.
The Palio is not a special event organized for tourists! It is a part of the heart of the local residents and, for this reason, it finds a place in the heart of the guests that understand its significance and genuineness. In this context the horse is surely the outright protagonist of the festival and race.
It is the only and undiscussed arbiter of the victory or defeat: from here born the particular love of the Siena’s people for the horses.
By dedicating our apartments to the great horses that are part of the history of Siena’s Palio, we wanted our guests feel this love for them. We want you to live here the Palio atmosphere every year’s day.
We are sure that, after your stay, you will leave Siena taking in your heart a more intimate knowledge of the tradition of the Palio and feeling a limitless nostalgia for our city

“Our Experience in Casa Vacanze il Campo” – 30 December 2016
My name is Matin and I am a university student in Siena University. My friend and I rented a house from Casa Vacanze il Campo for November 2016. The house was clean and all the necessary things like dishes, glasses, iron, towels and etc were available there. Also the house is located in the city center so we did not need to pay for transportation. We enjoyed our days in the house.
The manager of Casa vacanze il campo, Mr. Giuvanni Ruggeri, helped us in so many ways. Once our family sent us a package but as a result of a mistake happened in post office the package was sent to Bologna. As we could not speak and write in Italian language so we asked Mr. Ruggeri to help us. He started the process of following the package which took a month long. Finallay Mr. Ruggeri received our package and gave it to us. We are so thankful to him.
We recommend casa Vacanze il Campo to the people who want to enjoy their time in Siena.
“Three weeks in Siena” – 21 October 2016
I decided to spend one month inTuscany this year and was advised by several friends that Siena would be an ideal city to use as a base. I wanted to rent close to the Campo, Siena’s main square so that I could become familiar with the neighborhood. After considering various alternative properties, I selected Apartment Benito, offered by Casa Vacanze il Campo. Giovanni went out of the way to email pictures of his various properties, and also to make sure that everything worked perfectly in the apartment. He also arranged a day trip for me and two of my friends to visit Montalcino, where the grapes for Brunello, one of Italy’s most important wines, is grown. I heartily recommend Giovanni as a landlord for your stay in Siena.
“Perfect!” – 3 October 2016
Great location just seconds from the piazza del campo! Giovanni is very great to work with this is why I go back every year. Very clean rooms and emails are always returned. Location, price and communication- 5 Stars!

“Central location, convenient solution ” – 9 July 2016
Excellent location, nice clean apartment, honest price, welcoming host with a strong eye for detail. I would definitely recommend it for a short stay in Siena to be close to all the main attractions. Only slight hiccup was that the WiFi was not working properly all the time.
