We stayed at Pieve a Pava for a week with a group of friends and it was the *perfect* Tuscan experience. In particular Rita's cooking was amazing, Our room was perfect for us - just beautiful and elegant in a country way. We loved the location deep in the countryside with access to Florence, Sienna and lots of other smaller... More

You have to be a special person to go to this enchanting place. The WIFI may not be very fast, the dusty track leading up to the house is not fit for a Ferrari, you cannot walk to the shops. All this for me makes this place bliss. Stylishly furnished with Axel Vervoordt inspired interiors, the Belgian owners know how... More

My two daughters, husband and I just returned from a wonderful 10 day trip to Italy. We stayed at Pieve a Pava for 5 days and found this to be one of the highlights of our trip. It was the perfect place to unwind each day before and after exploring the Tuscan region. Rita and Johny are gracious hosts, preparing... More

We stayed over the Christmas holidays 2011, down season and many places were closing for the season. Johnny and Rita graciously stayed open so we could enjoy the region for a few days. Would love to return one day in the spring. Perfect location and the grounds are gorgeous. The rooms are wonderful.

We stayed here for four night in mid-April and are still in a state of bliss thanks to the beauty and tranquility of this special place. Johny and Rita are lovely hosts and provided us not only with a delicious breakfast every morning but were generous with recommendations of local sites and restaurants. Can't recommend staying here and the surrounding... More

We had a great stay with Rita and Johny at their guest house. The room we had was more like an appartment with lots of space. The room and the rest of the buildings are being kept very authentic which gives a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed breakfast and diner at the guesthouse and it felt as if we were visiting... More

It was time beginning of November for the Truffel season in Tuscany. Rita & Johnny provided delicious food & wines around the famous mushroom in the area. It was simply awesome.

We stayed at Pieve a Pava for 3 nights (Sept. 2012) as part of our honeymoon trip to Italy, and it was by far the best part of the entire trip. Johny and Rita are amazing hosts and made us feel very welcome. And their property is simply beautiful. It has a historic chapel, an old farmhouse, and a bunch... More

We really fell in love with Tuscany, I'm sure that's because we were staying at Pieve a Pava for two nights. Our stay was way to short unfortunately, but we will return for sure!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The small borgo of Pieve a Pava is half an hour's drive south from the city of Siena, in a lesser known but particularly captivating part of Tuscany, called the Crete Senesi. It has been converted into a small luxury guesthouse, where one can easily discover the charms of the Tuscan way of life whilst finding ’one's home away from home’. ... more   less
