During August we did a road trip for three weeks in Italy, of which we spent three nights at Aia Mattonata. We chose this B&B due to the great ratings at Tripadvisor. Although we arrived with great expectations - this place really exceeded our wildest dreams. During our stay, the August Palio took place. It might seem strange, but we... More

Wow. What can I say? The first thing you should know is that Mario and Lisibetta are the perfect hosts. They did everything they could to give my wife and I a lovely stay at their beautiful country home, just outside Sienna. Beautiful outdoor pool, beautiful gardens, excellent breakfast on the terrace outside the house, very comfortable rooms, but all... More

We really cannot speak highly enough of Aia Mattonata, and it's wonderful owners Mario and Elisabetta. The relais is just beautiful, with a stunning view overlooking Siena. The grounds and rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated. It's incredibly calm, quiet and relaxing. It's the little details that make this place really special though...even before our arrival, Mario was booking activities... More

Everything about this property is pure perfection! Beautiful views of Siena, Manicured landscaping, and a spotless pool to cool off. The rooms are modern, spacious, and immaculate. The breakfast each morning is an incredible spread of fresh fruit, local meats and cheeses, and eggs cooked to order. All this would make Aia Mattonata an incredible place to stay, but what... More

I can't say enough positive things about our stay here. Everything from the grounds (pool!), rooms, staff, and breakfast were nothing but amazing. Elisabetta and Mario were so welcoming, and truly make you feel like you're part of the family. When I ended up getting sick, Elisabetta called me a doctor and even took me to the pharmacy for my...

Where to begin?! The setting of the Aia Mattonata is beautiful. The converted barn is stunning and the gardens and pool are delightful. The views over Siena are picturesque and even in a thunder storm we were awed by the lightening over the hills! The pool was deliciously cold, always spotless and sue to the small number of rooms, always... More

Mario and Elisabetta were so welcoming and went out of their way to ensure our time there was memorable…. assisting with dinner reservations, arranging a winery tour, providing itinerary suggestions and even locating/procuring for us a special Italian pastry my husband remembered from his childhood!...
