This is not a hotel so dont expect complete toiletries. They just have body soap / shampoo. The bed is soft and the linens/ towels are very clean and fresh smelling.... More

This vacation was the culmination of many years of dreaming and planning. Our intention was to spend a week in the Tuscany area in a place that would serve as a home base from which we would take daily excursions. An easy drive to all the hill towns as well as the bigger cities of Florence and Siena, we could... More

When we pulled in to Frances' Lodge the beauty took our breath away. Franco and Franca were the perfect hosts, waiting to greet us, show us the property and offering us a delicious dinner for our first night in Sienna. Dinner was served in the gazebo so we could watch the sun set as we dined on a traditional Tuscan... More

From the moment we drove through the gates of Frances Lodge and were greeted by Frances and Franco, we knew we had chosen well. We spent 10 incredible days staying in the Junior Suite.
