Pretty and very clean B&B on a small alley in old town Pienza which was our base in southern Tuscany.
The location was perfect to visit other towns and very quiet at night.
There is a small parking lot right next to the B&B which has 30 minutes limit but you can find plenty of parking places near by after you drop off your luggage.
The town is small so you can walk to the apartment after you park and it is nice walk in pretty little town anyway. Remember to park in white line.
Blue line for pay parking, yellow for residents and white for free parking.
The owner gives you a ticket for the breakfast which includes coffee and a pastry at near by coffee shop.
We stayed in three other places during our stay in Italy and this was the best place with good price.
Our apartment had wooden floor which I prefer over tile fllor and was very clean.
The owner Roberta seems like a person who likes arts and crafts and had some disply in her office and gave us a little farewell gift that she made.
She does not live there but has a office at the building and stays there during day time but we did not need her during our stay.
One minor thing that I missed was a hair dryer but it is very possible that it was there but I missed it since I did not find their kitchen stuff till the 2nd day of our stay.
They were inside of furniture...yes....inside.
You opened the lid of a furniture and there is your sink and stove.
Over all we had very nice stay at this B&B.
