Wow, what a great place. It is a short drive out of Siena (about 10 minutes), the taxi wasn't expensive either. The breakfast was lovely, held in an old open shed. Everyone that stayed there went for breakfast and we swapped travel experiences to get around the Tuscan region. The room was comfortable and rustic, with an ensuite style bathroom.... More

It was really great atmosphere, we really liked homemade breakfast , breakfast table and it's arround. Watching Siena from pool area was incredible , Letizia owner of the hotel was really welcoming and always made us feel happy. We are looking forward going there as soon as possible.

Reception service has obviously improved (referring to criticism of travellers two years ago): with a code you can open the door and are independent to come and go whenever you... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and loved its beautiful location and wonderful hospitality. Maybe need a car to get to it but we walked 20 min walk to town as parking is a shocker.The villa was indeed a true Tuscan experience with beautiful furnishings and gardens. The breakfast was delicious being outdoors under a vine covered... More

Unique and romantic place. Would highly recommend this bed and breakfast, a bit hard to find but well worth it. Outdoor breakfast with homemade products and swimming pool with breathtaking views of Siena. Its not cheap but worth every penny.

While the place is just outside Siena, it's simply amazing. The views of Siena from the hotel are impressive! We had a great time at La Strega. Beautiful grounds, outstanding views, breakfast was lovely! The owner was very professional, attentive and accommodating of our needs. The place is very beautiful, she keeps it in great condition and the rooms are... More

Beautifully furnished, home from home. Stunning views from the gardens and infinity pool across the Siena skyline, breath taking. Taxis into town were easy and cheap. Stay here, it's divine. We really enjoyed sharing a large attractive outdoor breakfast area with other guests of many nationalities.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here prior to our wedding in Siena. We have stopped here before and really enjoyed it. We aren’t people to visit the same place twice, nevermind stay in the same hotel, but we could come back to Podere La Strega in a heartbeat. It’s close to Siena centre (not walking distance) with INCREDIBLE... More

Charming, excellently maintained villa with beautiful surroundings. Ideal if you want to relax. A short drive away to Siena so you will need a car. The owner is hospitalble without over crowding you. I would recommend this place to those looking to stay in Siena. Only downside is that there is no where close to get drinks or snacks!
