My wife and I stayed at Tenuta la Santissima for two nights in August and it was perfect. Everything you would ever want in a Bed and Breakfast is here. And frankly, calling it a "Bed and Breakfast" simply doesn't justify how wonderful of an experience this place provides. We not only had breakfast but, for the most part, also had lunch and dinner and it was quite literally some of the best food we have ever tasted. We had dinner with the family on both nights and we ate and drank until we could no more. It was simply wonderful. During the second day of our stay, we used their bikes to tour the countryside and, at their wonderful suggestion, went to a local river where we swam and lounged, as they say, under the Tuscan sun. They are the most gracious, warm-hearted, thoughtful and helpful hosts we have ever encountered. The rooms are wonderful and made for a fantastic stay. I would say, if you’re going to Siena, do yourself a big favour and stay least one night at Tenuta la Santissima. I could write about this place for pages but it wouldn’t do it justice. Do yourself a favour and spend a night or a few at Tenuta la Santissima. I know I will forever have fond memories of the people and the place.
