We spent a wonderful few days here with friends. Francis and Franca were the perfect hosts and could not have been kinder and more helpful. A beautiful and tranquil setting overlooking Siena. A very special place!

We visited and stayed at Frances' Lodge during our yearly summer family vacation. Our hosts Frances and Franco were warm and fantastic! The property has been in Franco's family for many generations and has been renovated to host guests from around the world who wish to experience everything Tuscany. During our stay, we rented a car and toured the region's... More

What an awesome place! We stayed at Frances Lodge for 3 lovely nights as a base for visiting Siena and Tuscany. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is in the area and rented a car. The lodge is about 10 minutes outside Siena on a beautiful property. Breakfast was amazing and tranquil (part of the reason why we chose... More

Our recent 4 night stay at Frances Lodge was one of the more memorable in all of our years of travel. The entire place is charming and unique and deserves more time to explore it than we were able to afford. The rooms are decent-sized, well-appointed and the bathroom was sizable by European standards (liquid soap only, so bring a... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending three nights at the gorgeous Frances' Lodge in March. The owners, Frances and Franco, are simply superb. Learning from them about Sienna was one of the true highlights of our vacation!

This converted stable into five rooms is very comfortable, with reading area looking out at a beautiful garden. The lodge is located at the top of a hill with a wonderful view of Siena, a ten minute drive- a car is a must! Franco and Frances couldn't be more helpful or generous with their time. They gave us many wonderful... More

We visited Italy in June 2014. We started our search on trip advisor and quickly narrowed down our lodging options based on reviews. The reviews of France's lodge were quite high and we quickly booked our stay. Franco and Franca were a delight and very welcoming. They made sure our every need was met. The breakfast were made to order... More

For the past 10 years I’ve sent many clients to Frances Lodge. And each have came back and told me what a wonderful time they had. France Lodge is a working farm but you would never know it. The views are breathtaking and the rooms are beautifully done. Each is decorated differently. Franco and Frances know how to take care... More

I learned about Frances' Lodge because someone on a US flight saw me reading the Rick Steves Italy book and told me that if we were going to Siena there was a place we had to stay. That happened in September 2014 ... they had stayed there in 2012 (it was that memorable). My wife & I along with another... More
