We recently spent 6 nights at Frances' Lodge as part of our honeymoon to Italy and absolutely loved it. Our stay there was the favorite part of our trip and the best accommodations. Franco and Frances were amazing hosts and travel planners, as well as wonderful people. They provided the best suggestions for both fun-filled days as well as relaxing,... More

We spent 10 nights at Frances Lodge, Aug 17 to Aug 27. This was our FOURTH trip to Tuscany, and each time we stayed at Frances Lodge. Why? Because we LOVE it. Frances (Franca) and Franco have taught us so much about Siena and its surroundings. They are a wealth of information. We are like locals when we go there.... More

We stayed at Frances' Lodge for 3 nights and hated to leave. The peace, tranquility, and beauty of the location, not to mention the convenience as a home base to all of Tuscany, makes it the perfect spot that all should enjoy. Frances and Franco care so much about providing, not just excellent, but perfect service to each and every... More

We stayed at Frances' Lodge for 5 fantastic nights. We could not have found a better spot! The location, just outside of Siena, is ideal as a central spot to take day trips to discover Tuscany. But Frances and Franco provide so much more than just the ideal location. The accommodations are excellent (the White Room with its own private... More

Ah Tuscany! It is one of our favorite places in the world. Among it’s many treasures is a home away from home for us…FRANCES’ LODGE. We first stayed at Frances’ Lodge, which is perched on a hilltop across from the beautiful skyline of Siena, in 2004 on advice from friends. Our family has now stayed with Frances and Franco, the...

My husband and I loved Frances' Lodge and couldn't have been more pleased with the beautiful country home and the views of Siena. Frances and Franco were the perfect hosts and were more than happy to give us sightseeing advice and maps to get us there and back. We loved the White Room we stayed in and the breakfasts were...

Frances and Franco have carved out a unique place near Siena, providing their guests with a level of comfort and care that is unbeatable. We used their B&B as a base from which to explore Siena as well as the hill towns of Tuscany south and west of Siena. Our hosts' cogent suggestions and Franco's perfect directions (despite which we... More

We cannot say enough about Frances' Lodge! Both Franco and Frances are wonderful people who are friendly and helpful to all their guests. We stayed 6 nights and didn't want to leave! The views of Siena and of Tuscany were breathtaking--pictures and words cannot do it justice. We were here celebrating our 35th anniversary, and we definitely picked the right... More
