There is ar eason this is the number one rated place to stay in Siena/Tuscany, From the minute you pull up to the sadness of the minute you leave; your every need is attended to. Bags-no problems, wonderful breakfast-yes, ideas on where to go and eat-whatever you need is taken care of by the very caring owners-Mario and Elisabetta (even a ride into town which was way above and beyond). Nice size rooms, big bathrooms and a loving dog that runs around to entertain. Very nice grounds with great views over the countryside to Siena. Snacks and drinks out 24 hours a day. You feel like a guest for about ten minutes and then you feel like you have come home to your own Tuscan villa.

Room Tip: Only six rooms to choose from-we had two of them for the week and did not appreciate that there was anything could be wrong with any of them.

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and our only regret is that we had not booked more nights at Aia Mattonata Relais. Mario and Elisabetta could not have been more welcoming and professional. The room was spacious, and the bed had luxurious linens and was very comfortable. Breakfast was incredible, served outside with the most beautiful views! Mario also gave us a map with directions to several small towns that we would never had known to visit, and we so enjoyed that part of our trip. We loved every minute of our stay!

This place really felt like you were in a different world! It's about 10 minutes outside of Siena with a great view of the city on one side and the Tuscan countryside on the other. The property is gorgeous and the old (~400 years) restored farmhouse makes a great bed and breakfast. Mario and Elizabetta were awesome hosts. The breakfast spread was very impressive! They made great restaraunt and wine tour recommendations, and were happy to setup the arrangements for everything. The only tradeoff is that it is about a 15-20 euro taxi ride each way in and out of Siena...

Selected Aia Mattonata after reading Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Beautiful location close to Siena and to the surrounding sites. The hotel is beautifully maintained, the hosts gracious and helpful. Five excellent restaurant recommendations from Mario during our short stay!! If you like small boutique hotels you will not be disappointed

You'll need a car if you stay here (and a GPS), but it is easy access from here to many of the popular destinations in Tuscany
