“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

The staff and owners of the agriturismo were extremely gracious and helpful, and the breakfasts were quite good and varied daily, with a variety of home-made pastries and even delicious home-cured salmon. Because of the agriturismo's popularity, we ended up having to change rooms twice, in order to stay 4 nights. We loved the Camera Grande and Camera Azzure -- beautiful, quiet, and comfortable, with high quality furnishings, perfect beds, and great bathrooms. We didn't enjoy the suite, which was the only room available for one of the nights. The unpleasant smell of fermenting wine filled the suite's main room from below, and despite the spaciousness (living-dining-kitchenette (without utensils) area plus bedroom and bathroom) and nice furniture, the room didn't have the light and charm of the others. Dinner was offered only one of the nights after we arrived, which we weren't able to attend, but we heard rave reviews from the guests who did. The wifi didn't work in any of the rooms in which we stayed, so we had to sit outside on the porch for that. Siena was a great base, from which we easily explored San Gimignano, Volterra, several routes through Chianti, Pienza, Montepulciano, Monterrigioni, etc.

I loved staying at this place. Our room was very luxurious. The most comfortable bed of our trip without a doubt. Beautifully decorated room and gorgeous farm house. Wi-fi was available in the common areas but not in the rooms which I found very relaxing.

Everyone we met was wonderful and friendly and we were given a tour of the cellars. Ronaldo's Vernacchia is famous and has won lots of awards so make sure you buy it from the Agritourismo as we couldn't find it anywhere else as it has sold out in all of the wine shops we went to. We got to try their cannaiolo which was very good.

Breakfast was truly amazing - one of the best I think we've ever had and all homemade. It's worth staying just for the breakfast!

Siena is very close, a 5 minute drive or 10 euro taxi journey away. Would definitely recommend and would love to go back.

The rainbow just as we arrived was a signal that this would be an extra-ordinary experience.
We were here for two nights, and wish it could have been a longer visit.
The rooms, meals, people, and even other guests were all above par and a wonderful, memorable experience. We even had a view of the dome & tower of Siena's Duomo off in the distance from our room. This is the perfect base from which to visit all those Tuscan hill towns. Absolutely beautiful, tranquil, and scenic beyond all belief--it was like being in an Italian dream. We are already hoping to make a return visit...and Siena has plenty to see as well.

This was our second trip to Agriturismo Marciano, and we were not disappointed. I'd highly recommend eating at Marciano (make sure to request this in advance). The breakfasts and dinners are cooked in their kitchen and are amazing... some of the best food we had in all of Tuscany. And our per night cost was by far the cheapest of our entire Italian vacation.

Additionally, Siena is a perfect home base within Tuscany to stay for a few nights and explore the other towns nearby. If you rent a car (which I'd recommend... Parking is free at Marciano.) you can venture out to Orvieto, Montalcino, Montepulciano or any of the other dozens of small towns within a 1-2 hours drive.

Remember that this is a quiet, rural place outside of Siena by about 10 minutes driving. Don't expect it to be in the middle of the happening night life. Go here to relax, absorb the beautiful scenery and enjoy the food and wine.

Room Tip: There are only 5-6 rooms all of which are about the same size.

Highly recommend the Agriturismo Marciano. Great location, friendly owners and staff. The group dinner was outstanding and the wine superb! Would stay again without hesitation. Close to Sienna and other hill towns but remote enough to be relaxed and authentic

A couple months ago my husband planned my surprise birthday in Marciano... It was a dream birthday and couldn't ask for more! Besides having part of my family coming as a surprise too, they accomodated all my family as well. We tried to have dinner almost every night at the hotel because they cooked VEGAN food for us (you have to arrange dinner details the day before) and was the most tasty dinner we had by far! They cook everything fresh from their farm, the wines are theirs, the cats were amazing and the rooms are beautiful! The location is great (you do need a car) and the view from the rooms is gorgeous! We felt as if we were in our own home in the center of Siena. It was like living in a romantic movie or in a beautiful postcard... I would looooove to go back! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

One of the great advantages of Agriturismo Marciano is its site close to the town walls of ancient Siena and at the same time just far enough to be absolutely quiet. It is only a short distance away from the autostrada that takes You for trips to San Gimminano, the Crete and Val d Orcia, but far enough, that You dont hear the cars at all. The in tuscany style nicely furnished rooms are very tidy. And Nadja and Valentina do their very best to make everybody happy. For instance the breakfast at the long rural table is fantastic!!
Renato, the owner, needs two cups of cappuccino in the morning to show, that he is a very friendly guy. His wines are excellent, specially his red Cammaiollo and his white San Gimmiano. Make a short walk through his olive trees, taste a glas of Cammaiollo in their shadow and try the oil afterwards and You know Tuscany!

Room Tip: all about the same quality
