“Very cool...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This was pretty cool place to stay. It didn't start too well as we arrived out of season... and it was extremely cold for even for out of season... we stayed two nights in Bernardo suite, which took the whole first day to heat up well enough... it was eventually absolutely fine. Bernardo suite has a decent view with small balcony, which could be awesome in the summer. The owner lady doesn't speak much English, but tries very hard. She recommended a restaurant about 50 yards away, which was very good. You get breakfast vouchers to be used in two local cafes - both about a minute walk out of the main door. It would have been helpful to know what you can order for these vouchers - we kinda relied on/trusted the cafe owner to serve us accordingly. One of them, something called Volpe (or similar) wasn't very good, the guy there probably took the mickey, while the other was decent. We used Pienza as a base for trips to Montalcino and Montepulciano, where we stocked up on wine. Once the owner lady saw us with bottles of wine, she gave us a complimentary bottle of wine out of her own produce. Nice touch.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Not only is Pienza a very nice little village to visit it's position is also perfect to visit surrounding cities such as Montalcino en Montepulciano where you can load your car with the great wines (ask Elisabetta for some good cantinas). Lago di traimeno is about a 1 hour drive and worth while a visit.

When you return at the end of the day Pienza has some good restaurants with excellent local dishes and wines.

The apartments are cosy, very well decorated and make you feel welcome instantly. A lot of passion went into them. Elisabetta is a very friendly host and we hope to return there soon.

Tip:
Close to the Via dell'amore you have beautiful sights and there is a bar where you can sit outside enjoying the views even longer.

Parking van be difficult, close to Pienza it is a reserved for locals. A bit outside you will find parking areas (paid) and some spots that are free (for the lucky ones).

Room Tip: All seem to be very good.

This hotel is spectacular! The location is central, quiet and charming. The interior of of the rooms is spacious and beautiful. Our room included a living room space and a bedroom. The interior design has lovely wooden ceilings and stone walls. We found the owner to be helpful and friendly.

my husband & me went on a honeymoon in Italy and planned to stay in Pienza for 1 night and ended up staying for 3!! nights at Elisabeta's beautiful, tasteful, romantic, comfortable and cosy suits.
That kind of says it all, but for the record - Elizabeta and her friend, who ran the place, are 2 of the most friendly, hospitable and pleasant people we ever came across. The suits are very quaint and extremely stylish, designed for maximum comfort and relaxation, the smallest of details thought of - including slippers and candles, extremely good scented soap and shampoo, all in the highest of standards, it's absolutely pampering and womderful and we would surely come back!

after learning that we're on our honeymoon, Elizabeta decorated the room and supplied all kind of treats that were both delicious and heart warming.
