I cannot use enough superlatives to describe this property B&B. It exceeded our expectations, Mario and Elizabetta have managed to create an absolutely beautiful, elegant, and restful place for all their guests. From the well appointed rooms to the delicious breakfast and the spectacular gardens with an incredible vista. This is THE place to stay when in Siena. Grazie!

We arrived in Siena for the second part of our holiday in Italy. We had arranged for an apartment located within Siena that unfortunately was not what we expected. After quickly looking on Trip Advisor, we came across Aia Mattonata and called them. Mario and Elizabeth had one room available and sight unseen, we booked it. When we arrived, we... More

Our third visit to Tuscany and we decided to try Siena. We like to be near a selection of restaurants, bars and shops but also like the idea of escaping to a quiet retreat once we have finished our day/evening out.

Thank goodness my wife and I invested in maps of Italy for our Garmin so that we easily located this little bit of heaven a little bit outside of Siena.

My wife and I stayed at Aia Mattonata for 3 nights in late May. Our plan was to explore Siena and the surrounding hill towns but hopefully have more than a 'hotel room' to return to in the evenings or if we wanted a slow morning start. Aia Mattonata couldn't have been better! It is a wonderful spot and added... More
