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

Pinuccia is the heart of Le Traverse. She welcomes tired travelers, and then rejuvenates them with the history and stories of Val D'Orcia, over a glass of prosecco. We fell in love with this place, and the city of Pienza nearby. My husband thought that Pinuccia could be the mayor. She called restaurants for us, 2 nights while we were... More

Do yourselves a favour…stay here as long as possible! My Husband and I spent 10 glorious days here in September 2012, I have not got round to writing a review of Le Traverse….so now I have a moment to do so. Pinuccia could not have been a more charming, welcoming & helpful hostess. We arrived very late at night after... More

If I had to name one place that resembled what I imagined heaven might be like amongst the many places I have traveled to around the world, it would have to be Le Traverse in the lovely region of Val D'Orcia. We loved every minute of the three days we spent there, everything from our scrumptious homemade breakfasts served blue... More

After a busy weekend in Florence, we felt the tranquility of Le Traverse the moment we turned into the Cyprus lined driveway up to Pinnucia's beautiful home. As other reviewers have described the lovely setting, rooms, cleanliness, quality of furnishings and bedding etc, I won't repeat all that has been said. Only to add that it is truly a beautiful...
