We have been there the 2nd time and again we have found a paradise just outside Siena! Here, simply everything is perfect and the hospitality of Franca e Franco cannot be described in words. We will certainly come back as soon as possible!

Frances and Franco are wonderful hosts. The Inn is charming with all the amenities and then some. You could spend your entire time here and be very happy. Normally I prefer hotels but this is exceptional!

I cannot say enough great things about out stay at Frances Lodge. We were there for 4 nights in the middle of a two week vacation in Italy. Frances and Franco greeted us when we arrived, and waved goodbye when we left. Every day at our amazing breakfast, they both talked to us about our plans for the day. Franco... More

This holiday was a dream come true with many wonderful memories to treasure forever. After thoroughly researching the Internet for the best places to stay we found France's Lodge & Relaise.

Charming hosts, beautiful surroundings, delicious breakfasts. It was a lovely and relaxing ending to our two week Italian vacation. Frances reserved a wine tour for us and another couple staying at the lodge which was great fun. We highly recommend Frances Lodge!

What else can be said about the amazing Frances and Franco and their wonderful home? The views are spectacular and the breakfast tasty. Franco has maps to get you safely to and from Siena and can whip up a reservation or tour with a moments notice. The pool was perfect on hot summer days. Seriously, this is a gem.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this beautiful lodge in early July 2015 for our honeymoon and our only regret is not booking a longer stay. Three nights is simply not enough. Within 15 minutes of arriving at the lodge and taking in the stunning views I turned to my wife and said "this place might be heaven".... More
