What a great place. The location is terrific and the rooms were great! The place is kept immaculate. They have lemon and olive trees on the 50 plus acres. Just the break we needed between Florence and Rome. The views at this place will bring a tear to your eye. The real star here is Punnuccia! What a great Host!

Our family of five visited the farm/estate/bed and breakfast, Le Traverse, in July, 2014, and we all agree this was one of the most memorable highlights of our visit to Italy. Located just 3 minutes from Pienza, this villa boasts bird-eye views of the historic city (gorgeous at night!) as well as acres of rolling Tuscan farms and hills in... More

The accommodations are spectacular. The food was spectacular. The views were spectacular. But the most spectacular of all is the innkeeper, the owner of Le Traverse, Signora Pinuccia Barbier Meroni. She is a most gracious lady, helping with a daily itinerary or finding a great restaurant or helping replace your rental car because you put diesel fuel in a gasoline... More

Both the wonderful breakfasts and the breathtaking scenery were standouts. Our hostess, Pinnuccia, was very welcoming and helpful.She has done an amazing job restoring this ancient villa , attending to every detail. She seems very invested in her guests having a good experience. Her staff, Alicia and Svetlana, were very accommodating and good natured. The views from this estate are... More

We will always treasure our stay at this beautiful place. The setting is perfect, with breakfast brought on a tray to our private terrace. After I picked figs from the trees, our host would spend time giving us directions and ideas before we drove off for a tour of the surrounding area. She was caring and helpful. The location is...

I can't say enough wonderful things about my stay here. Our hostess was warm and welcoming with great advice on restaurants. The scenery is breathtaking and since the inn is on a 55 acre so much of the breakfast was produced there. They even have their own wine they welcome you with! Trust me-you won't want to leave!

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...

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
