Rustic, yet modern, 14 room B & B with large garden and ample parking along busy Strada dei Tufi outside the walls of Siena. We spent 3 nights, Oct 3-6, 2013 and found it a great place to explore Tuscany. We selected a room on the second floor (305), which was quite spacious, clean, quiet and well equipped with fridge, room safe, 4 piece ensuite, TV and Wi-Fi. Breakfast was plenty with good selection of rolls, breads, cheeses, yoghurts, cakes, sweets, fresh fruits and cereals. Service provided by sisters and sisters in-law (Gabriella, Rosella and Daniela) who run the B&B was delightful and delivered with a smile.
Since the B&B is outside the City walls, there are no restaurants within easy walking distance. City center is about 1.5km walk up a fairly steep hill along busy road with no side walk is challenging. Siena is rather hilly and you can take the bus for about €1.20 each way to Porta Tufi, the entrance to the City, and walk 10min to the center. We opted to park right at the City centre (Il Campo) parking garage for €1.50/HR and saved our feet for walking the City all day to enjoy the many sights and restaurants.
Highly recommend this B&B as a great base to explore the Chianti region.
