“Excellent for an authentic and relaxed stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

The hosts were wonderful, the building was amazing, and the surroundings were beautiful.

The perfect spot to stay, while discovering the surrounding towns or further out in Tuscany.

Would definitely recommend it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast, very professionally run. The room was spotless and well appointed. Modern, new fixtures in the bath did not detract from a completely authentic restoration. If it is hard to imagine how something built in 1300 can be both authentic and completely comfortable, you should make a reservation and stay here yourself to see how it's done. Breakfast was delicious and included fresh fruit and high-quality baked pastries. The hosts were very friendly and responsive. I would recommend this to any friend, and even suggest they arrange their trip to include a visit here.

Room Tip: I believe every room would be unique. I stayed in a room facing the entry gate to the property that...

This beautiful bed and breakfast combines the best of all worlds. It is located far enough off the beaten path that it would be unlikely to ever hear a car. Yet it is only 8 miles to Siena and 50 miles to Florence. There are so many fantastic places to visit within a short drive that it's hard to choose which ones to explore.

The building itself is beautifully renovated with such attention to detail. It's hard to believe the building is hundreds of years old. Our room and bathroom had all the modern conveniences and were more than comfortable. The bed was the real gem. A sturdy iron frame and great linens.

Breakfast was great. Homemade baked goods as well as cold cuts and cheese. Giuseppina and Paolo were gracious hosts and made us feel right at home.

My only word of caution to anybody interested in this lovely location is to make sure you get whatever you need on the way to the inn. There is nowhere within walking distance to grab a soda or snack. But that's a small price to pay for such a relaxing setting.

What a beautiful location, and what excellent hosts. After two weeks of Rome, Venice and Florence, our last four days here were an excellent way to slow down and relax. Both he and his wife served a delicious breakfast every morning, and Claudio gave us excellent advice on where to visit and where to eat in the surrounding countryside.
Sunflowers and firefiles(!) made the time even more enjoyable. Our heart-felt thanks to both of them for having us there.

Room Tip: In hot weather the upper rooms get a bit warm, without air conditioning a fan (provided) is needed t...
