I have never stayed in a nicer place. Frances and Franco are the most accommodating, sweetest people you will ever meet. They helped us everyday with our itinerary and drew out directions for us. The food was the best we had on our entire trip. The whole place is spotless and smells like fresh laundry. The view was breaktaking and... More

Upon reading about the Frances Lodge in Rick Steve’s blog, I began planning a Tuscany vacation. Ms. Frances, the owner of France’s Lodge were so kind to correspond with me, giving me suggestions of things to do and places to visit. We finally made the trip this summer and stayed at this 300 year old olive farmhouse in Tuscany! The... More

We loved the lodge and really felt at home. Frances and Franco are stellar hosts and helped make our trip one we will always remember fondly. The view is breathtaking, the breakfasts were delicious and the jams and honeys and saffron they make on site are exquisite. We drizzled some chestnut honey we bought from the lodge over some Pienza... More

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left was perfection. We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend our six nights in Sienna. The lodge is absolutely breathtaking.

Our September 2015 vacation marked our fourth trip to Italy but our first outside of the typical hotel venues. Our five-night stay at Frances' Lodge was marked by a comfortable room, a beautiful pool for late afternoon swimming and relaxation, great conversations at breakfast and late evening with guests from around the world, and, of course, the elegant hospitality of...

Frances Lodge was a wonderful find. From the beautiful room to the delicious breakfast, we had an amazing time. Frances and Franco make you feel like you are a guest in their home.

This six-room former farmhouse and stables was converted to a B&B some 15 years ago and is run by a lovely couple Frances and Franco. The breakfast was remarkably delicious, and they have you place your order the night before. It was the best I've had in years. The Lodge has large rooms which are modernized but retain their rustic... More
