Pinnuccia was very warm and gracious. She gave great advice for our day trips, and our location was perfect for this. My 2 middle school-ers, wife, and I enjoyed the pool, the wonderful breakfasts, and the relaxed feel at home atmosphere.

This is my third stay at LeTraverse and I must say each time gets better than the last! The owner, Pinuccia and her staff treat you like friends. Relaxing farm with breathtaking view. Fantastic breakfast!

This is our 4th stay here and somehow perfection gets a bit more perfect every time. The farm itself is gorgeous. The rooms are extremely well designed, appointed and very comfortable. There are bathrobes, cold water and other amenities that put this B and B well ahead of any other B and B we've ever stayed at. The breakfast is... More

We were so lucky to have chosen to stay at LaTraverse on our trip through Tuscany! It is a real gem. The booking could not have been easier and was all done with a few emails. The owner speaks English and is a really delightful person, spending some time with each of her guests to make sure they know where... More

We stayed for a week at the end of May 2015 at this tastefully appointed B and B and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent hospitality, attention to detail and beautiful gardens . Pinuccia who owns and runs the place is a stylish and gracious host and is surrounded by lovely staff. We stayed in Lavanda which was perfect - well sized,... More

The views from anywhere on the property are spectacular. The owner and her staff made us feel like old friends, yet we never felt crowded by their presence. The breakfasts were served outside, everything prepared fresh for us. I could have stayed much longer! It was definitely the most memorable and charming place we stayed in all of Italy.

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
