Bosco is a complete base for a more extended stay. Very well situated a half hour south of Siena, near Montalcino (for Brunello fans), 45 north of the Amiata region, to this avid cyclist it offered the best of access to a huge variety of lightly travelled, beautiful, and challenging biking routes. The views are idyllic, the rooms well-equipped and generally well-serviced, and the dining room is good. Food is well prepared and served in a lovely, spacious, and extremely welcoming dining room. Wine list is good; in addition to the hotel's own label -- which, at 15 E per bottle, is a good and quite acceptable bargain. My personal day's agenda was extremely well-supported with breakfast available early and a very pleasant terrace on which to unwind in the late afternoon. Dining staff were extremely attentive and accommodating of all my needs. Hardly a complaint, but the food choices were a bit limited. Not a problem as Buonconvento, Trequanda, Asciano are all within very easy driving distance and offering an exceptional array of high end dining. Wireless access is from the dining room, terrace, and reception only which was a bit challenging if one wanted to compose late night emails from the comfort of one's room. Priced very reasonably.
