We had been travelling around Europe in a relatively budget 2-3 star hotels decided to splurge when we got to Siena. And it was well worth it! We originally wanted the white room but was unfortunately booked out and chose the yellow room instead. The room was cute and very clean. There was 2 big shower heads side by side each other which made it very luxurious. The bed was big and good quality which gave us really good sleeps.
The lodge is a bit secluded which meant the views were amazing.
I would recommend hiring a car to get around or even a vesper.
The breakfast each morning was to die for. The amount of selections they had was unbelievable.
This place would truly blow you away!!!
Frances and Franco were truly great hosts and so accommodating to your every needs. They have the highest of high quality service you can imagine. So friendly and warm too.
I have recommended this place to my family and friends!
P.s we stayed here in sep2011
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Frances’ Lodge is a loverly restored country guest home set on a hill across from Siena. Its unbelievable view looks out over the old walled city from the top of a beautiful hilltop. It is here that, since the start of the 18th century, noble families of Siena kept their “villa”—the country house where they summered from May to November, to get away from the heat of the city and to watch over the harvests from their farm holdings; and here the Owners restored the 1853' largest "Limonaia" overlooking the Historical Garden, as part of a fascinating, rich of History, wonderful Estate, belonging to the same Family since quite 3 centuries.The commanding position of the house with its 360-degree panoramic views, the closeness to the city(only 1.8 km.—little more than a mile—as the crow flies), the silence and peace of being in the open countryside just outside the city walls... all of these features await you as soon as you pass through the gates, enter the lovely driveway, and behold the incredible view of Siena’s skyline amid vineyards, fruit orchards, and olive groves. You’ll be revived by sounds that busier parts of the world have forgotten: birds chirping, cicadas singing in summer, the wind blowing through the trees. ... more less
