What a wonderful little B&B, very centrally located to most Tuscan sites. Mario, the owner and father, is a pure delight. ALways smiling and helpful with regional info. He makes the most delicious cakes for breakfast as well as fresh fruit and his homemade jams. His son Carlo is the chef in the attached Osteria and his wife, Manuela, is a waitress. The food was amazing, reasonbly priced and at the end of the day the place became a small party as the inn's guests ate dinner and shared their days experiences. After ordering the house wine, Manuela showed us where the wine barrel was so we could help ourself. The rooms are spacious and filled with antiques. We stayed in the Junior Suite that has an attached bathroom that is bigger than some bedrooms in Italy!! The family dog, Merenda, lounges around all day and is happy to get a belly rub. There is a lovely pool that we didn't use due to the time of the year. We drove to Lucignano, Cortona, Montepulciano and Montalcino easily from Foiano. You truly will be treated like family here- and what a great family they ALL are. Grazie!!
