We had a fabulous stay here with Mario, Elisabetta and the team in Aug this year. We came to see this part of Tuscany and see the Palio and have a relaxing break. All of this we achieved, but only because of the superb hospitality of everyone at Aia Mattonata. The picturesque farmhouse is very well placed to strike out... More

We stayed two wonderful nights at this lovely countryside farmhouse outside Siena. The vibe is perfect if you want to relax in a well-cared for peaceful environment with spectacular views all around. The location to Siena and Tuscan wine country could not be better. We had a car but if we had more time I would be comfortable here without... More

This place is just perfect. Mario, Elizabetta and Sara are absolutely delightful. We were here for two nights - not nearly enough! - and they were the ideal hosts. The B&B is lovely, situated on a hill overlooking Siena across the valley, just a few kilometers away. The accommodations are comfortable and modern, but still have that wonderful Tuscan look...

This place was exactly what we needed for a bit of R&R between Rome and Florence sight seeing. It's in the middle of nowhere with a gorgeous view and is the most beautiful rustic cottage-esquire B&B. Mario and Elizabeth were incredibly welcoming and are running the place brilliantly! We borrowed bikes one day at no cost and had a cycle... More

I travel 100+ nights each year on business and therefore don't often write reviews. However, this hotel is so good it would be a shame not to share. Everything you see in the photographs cannot do justice of actually being there. Rooms were great, breakfast was good and the wine/beer/juices left out gave a great added touch.
