There are not enough superlatives in the English language to convey how wonderful our stay was at Aia Mattonata Relais. I knew from the moment I emailed Mario to inquire about available dates that this would easily be our favorite accommodation during our 10 day Italy trip, and I was not disappointed. Mario and his lovely wife, Elisabetta, could not have been more helpful and accommodating during our stay. We were able to get reservations (and the best tables, I might add) at the two best restaurants in Siena in advance, and as we were leaving Florence for Siena, Mario had the perfect suggestion as to where we should stop for lunch on our drive down. Upon our arrival, Mario immediately remembered that we were celebrating our first anniversary and remembered our plans during our stay. He and Elisabetta also helped us with driving directions to Montalcino and arranged a tasting with a friend of theirs who has a small wine production, which was easily one of the highlights of our entire trip. Mario gave us perfect driving instructions at our departure for our drive up to Milan, and just could not have been any nicer. The accommodations at the farm house are absolutely beautiful. Very comfortable beds, soft sheets, a large bathroom and shower (a rarity) and a beautiful view of Siena outside where we enjoyed wine and cheese as we watched the sunset. The breakfast selection was different and incredibly tasty each morning.
I wish that we could have stayed at Aia Mattonata Relais forever and have already recommended it to friends traveling to Italy this fall. I look forward to the day that my husband and I can return to this magical place to thank Mario and Elisabetta again in person for the wonderful memories from our stay in Siena that we will cherish forever. Thanks again to Mario and Elisabetta for such a fantastic stay in Siena.
