Returned yesterday from a fabulous 4 night break at the Aia Mattonata just outside Siena. On arrival we were met by Mario, later by Elisabetta, and they could not have done more for us. Restaurants recommended and booked by them were all very different but each was fabulous in their own way - local village osteria, local small Siena restaurant,... More

My wife and I spent two nights at Aia Mattonata last week. After five busy days in Florence it was a welcome and relaxing break in a stunning setting in the countryside but close enough to Siena for easy access. Mario and Elisabetta are wonderful hosts - kind, welcoming and helpful in every way. We could not have asked for... More

This is the second time we visited Aia Mattonata using the excuse that we wanted to see the Palio on 7/1 and 7/2 while staying 9 days and using it as a home base for visiting the lavender fields of Luberon in Provence.

We stayed at Aia Mattonata for 5 days as our base to explore Tuscany, its ideally located to all major Tuscany destinations such as Volterra in the north or Cortona in the south (All can be reached within a one hour drive). The distance to Siena is about 5 minutes and clearly beats sleeping in Siena itself given its driving... More

We just returned from Italy and one of the true highlights of our trip was our stay at Aia Mattonata Relais less than ten minutes from the heart Siena. What a lovely place with comfortable rooms and beautiful peaceful surroundings. But beyond that, it is the hospitality of the owners Mario and Elisabetta along with Sara that makes the experience...

When planning our vacation to Italy, Siena was not initially part of our itinerary and I cringe to think we almost missed seeing this beautiful city and the chance to stay in this wonderful countryside retreat.

Had a wonderful visit to this serene picturesque Tuscan countryside inn. Great helpful staff - and dog to befriend. If you'd like a nice quiet place about 10 minutes out of Siena you'll love this inn and spa. Thx Mario and Elisibetta! We highly recommend the memorable Ais Mattonata Relais.
