We were only going to stay one night and then stayed 3 more nights because we felt so at home. Carla and her daughter, Frederika, were lovely hostesses and very helpful in making sure we saw all of their favorite spots during our stay. The house is beautiful and immaculately clean with gorgeous antique furniture throughout and original travertine marble steps. Breakfast includes homemade breads and pastries and is served with cappuchino in their picturesque garden overlooking the valley. It is about a 20-30min easy uphill walk into the walled city of Siena nearby making it a wonderful base from which to visit Siena and explore the nearby Tuscan countryside.
