My wife and I spent three weeks traveling Italy to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the 5 days we spent at Frances Lodge was the highlight of our trip. Frances and Franco are incredible hosts, warm, welcoming, and knowledgable. The accomadations were excellent and the food, both the breakfast and the evening picnic diner, were wonderful. We especially welcomed the late afternoon swim with the great views of Siena. Restaurant recommondations in Siena were perfect. We definitely liked the vibe of Siena and look forward to spending more time in the near future to explore the town while staying at Frances' Lodge. Thank you Frances and Franco for making our trip so memorable!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Frances’ Lodge is a loverly restored country guest home set on a hill across from Siena. Its unbelievable view looks out over the old walled city from the top of a beautiful hilltop. It is here that, since the start of the 18th century, noble families of Siena kept their “villa”—the country house where they summered from May to November, to get away from the heat of the city and to watch over the harvests from their farm holdings; and here the Owners restored the 1853' largest "Limonaia" overlooking the Historical Garden, as part of a fascinating, rich of History, wonderful Estate, belonging to the same Family since quite 3 centuries.The commanding position of the house with its 360-degree panoramic views, the closeness to the city(only 1.8 km.—little more than a mile—as the crow flies), the silence and peace of being in the open countryside just outside the city walls... all of these features await you as soon as you pass through the gates, enter the lovely driveway, and behold the incredible view of Siena’s skyline amid vineyards, fruit orchards, and olive groves. You’ll be revived by sounds that busier parts of the world have forgotten: birds chirping, cicadas singing in summer, the wind blowing through the trees. ... more less
