This was our second visit to Il Giardino Segreto. The price is very reasonable and the location perfect, within the city walls of Pienza. In the mornings I would walk to the local bakery and buy coronets, the italian version of croissants. There is a free parking lot within a few blocks of the B&B which we knew from experience... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the loft apartment. It well equipped and the bed was comfortable. Overall, I would say good value, though the room was a bit tight. The free wifi signal didn't reach the loft, so we had to go to the main building and sit on the stairs to use wifi. The main building has a... More

What a fabulous place to stay in such a beautiful part of Italy. Kitchen was stocked with breakfast items. Fresh fruit and espresso machine in the office. Enjoyed afternoon naps and evening wine with my friend in the garden area. Beautiful flowers in the garden. I could have stayed here the whole time I was in Italy and would have... More

I stayed alone there in the last year summer. Il Giardino Segreto is a very nice place to stay. With a garden just outside the house, I can have a simple breakfast there. The bed is on the loft, and there is a dormer over the bed. You can close it, but I chose to open it, letting the sunlight... More

We spent three days in an apartment and it was perfect. Lovely furnishings, windows opened onto the central garden, kitchen stocked with breakfast items. Fresh fruit and espresso machine in the office. Central location for exploring the Val D'Orcia. Reasonable rates. Bella Italia!

My husband and I traveled to Pienza this past week to experience the peaceful and authentic side of Italy. One of our requirements was a quiet, clean, intimate, and authentic Tuscan camere. Giardino Segreto was exactly what we had in mind. The entrance is a charming "secret garden" hidden behind the village walls of Pienza, complete with old stone well... More

Il Giardino Segreto in Pienza has become almost a home away from home for us. We have stayed there 3 times and NEVER been sorry. Each room has a view of the "secret" garden with its a lovely flowers , comfortable garden furniture and secluded atmosphere. The building itself is a treasure and has been beautifully and authentically restored. Luisa... More

We loved it, stayed in a beautiful house with a great kitchen and good coffee available all the time, we loved the lady taking care of us, we were disappointed because the breakfast we were paying for was not breakfast (cookies, coffee and tea) but we would go back with pleasure, knowing all the above!
