Trying to find the perfect accommodations based on Tripadvisor reviews can be daunting. We absolutely made the right choice to stay at Le Traverse. Pienza is the perfect home base for travel in Tuscany and Le Traverse is the best choice! Location, accommodations, Pinuccia and her excellent staff (Alicia and Svetlana) are amazing! We cannot wait until our next visit!... More

Le Traverse was recommended to us by our travel arranger who has stayed there as have many of her clients. We had very high expectations based on her experience but Pinuccia and her staff exceeded our expectations. The room was very quaint, the food was fabulous and the views are incredible. But the best part of our stay was the... More

We contacted Le Traverse because it was so highly recommended by friends of ours. When we arrived, this villa surpassed all of our expectations. The views from Le Traverse are truly incredible...if only we had more time to sit and soak in the vastness and beauty of southern Tuscany. It is ALL visible from the doors of the villas that... More

We stayed here at the end of June and could not have been more pleased. Beautiful grounds, gorgeous, quaint rooms and wonderful staff. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside our room every morning, savoring an incredible breakfast spread. Pinuccia was so helpful in planning our days and gave us perfect dinner recommendations for every night we stayed. A very romantic place... More

We are just back from a marvelous visit! Nestled in the Tuscan hills with a clear view of Pienza we enjoyed the accommodations, the generous hospitality of the owner Pinuccia and the beautiful grounds including the pool and pond and the ease of access to great food and wine. Le Traverse is a piece of heaven on earth!

My husband and I stayed at Le Traverse for 3 nights in May 2014, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Pinuccia is a wonderful hostess and person, and a delight to visit and spend time with. In addition, the 2 ladies that work for Pinuccia are delightful. The surroundings are beautiful, and the breakfasts were the best we had... More

Any superlative I could use to describe my visit to Le Traverse would be an understatement. From the drive up the picture perfect driveway, to the beautifully decorated rooms with extra special attention paid to comfort and traditional Tuscan furnishings, to the stunning beauty of the surroundings in very direction you look, to the wonderful breakfasts complete with eggs from...

We have just returned from our second visit to Le Traverse. We were there in September 2013 and again this May 2014 with our daughter and her fiance. For us it is the perfect place to vacation: gorgeous views of the Val D'Orcia, well-appointed accommodations, fantastic three-course breakfasts in the garden, easy access to small towns in Tuscany, and the...

Le Traverse is an amazing B & B located just 5 minutes from Pienza. Having only 4 rooms, it is very private and serene with fabulous views of both the valley and Pienza. The owner lives on site and her love for the place is evident in all the details: hand picked antique furnishing, pressed laced trimmed sheets, a wonderful... More

Le Traverse is a jewel in the heart of Tuscany-a quiet peaceful and beautiful refuge-with stunning views of Val d'Orcia and nearby Pienza. The real jewel though is Pinuccia, the owner. She is a lovely charming lady who goes out of her way to get to know her guests and to make them feel welcome, comfortable, and at home. We... More
