My husband and I traveled to Pienza this past week to experience the peaceful and authentic side of Italy. One of our requirements was a quiet, clean, intimate, and authentic Tuscan camere. Giardino Segreto was exactly what we had in mind. The entrance is a charming "secret garden" hidden behind the village walls of Pienza, complete with old stone well and a beautiful array of flowers and plants. The entrance is a small alcove with a beautiful tile staircase that led to our second story room. Even the old wooden door that required a skeleton key was charming. Our room was actually a 2 room retreat. Upon entering, there was a tiled floor breakfast nook that sat next to a green shuttered window. Through that room you came to our sleeping area. The bed was clean, large, and comfortable and nicely covered with a satin bedspread. The furnishings were beautiful with things such as a large armoire, sitting chairs, weathered tables, and tasteful paintings of the Tuscan countryside. Wine glasses, ceramic cappucino cups, ceramic breakfast plates, and a latte kettle were just extra special touches. The breakfast was light and I found it quite enjoyable. Muffins, toasts with jams and jellies, juices, cappucino and tea, and biscotti. The bathroom was small but a very nice shower. Our hostess was wonderful! Although she spoke not a word of English, she managed to meet our every need and was eager to explain, in her own way, the ins and out of the bed and breakfast and our camere. The overall experience at this place was relaxing and peaceful. It is extremely clean and efficient and we will definitly return. The cost was 65.00 Euro per night-$81 American. I found the price extremely reasonable for the room and the extras-not to mention the feeling of being in Tuscany by just being in the room. Cannot recommend enough!
