This is a charming bed and breakfast operated by Elisabetta & Mario. It is just a couple of miles from the city/town of Sienna and in fact you can see it up on the hill from their property. We loved everything about it from the rooms, the great breakfast, but most of all Mario and Elisabetta. We like to take... More

SWEETEST PEOPLE. SO HELPFUL. GORGEOUS CLEAN ROOM. DELICIOUS FOOD! NO COMPLAINTS. I wish we had more time there. They make the most amazing breakfast. They were totally willing to accommodate to my wife gluten and other food intolerance. They greeted us at our car upon arrival and made us feel so welcome. They had great recommendations for food and fun.

Everything you see on their website is the truth. The photos are exactly as shown. The place is impeccable. The landscape is a dream, surrounded by vineyards, green fields, cypress and a view of Siena on the top of a hill. The rooms are very romantic, very, very clean, you can even sit on the floor. The bathrooms are as... More
