Podere Il Pero is a good place to stay near Siena if you have a car. Between the hassle and expense of parking, and the terror of the ZTL, you're much better off leaving your car well outside the city walls.

As for Podere Il Pero, it is a simply decorated, well managed place. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is some street noise, as the building is right beside a road that has moderate traffic. The owner and manager is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is basic but acceptable.

Although it is much better to leave your car at Podere Il Pero, getting into the center of Siena is not so easy. The bus stop is a 10-minute walk from the B&B, and half of the way you're on a road without sidewalks (sidewalks aren't so common in many places in Tuscany). The bus itself is good, but on weekends the bus only comes every 30 minutes, so if your timing is off you'll be waiting a while... and on all days bus service stops at 8:30pm. This means that if you have dinner in the center of Siena you will either have to walk or take a taxi back to Podere Il Pero. I walked but it is not a short or pleasant walk -- you have to go on busy roads, often without a sidewalk, and it is neither comfortable nor scenic.

Podere Il Pero is a good option, but there may be places that are more conveniently located in Siena that can also accommodate cars.

This is the perfect location for being close to the city (walking distance) and not in all the traffic of Siena. Podere Il Pero is quaint, quiet and well-appointed. The host, Gianni, is so friendly and helpful. He was very kind and patient in explaining directions, make recommendations of where else to go outside of Siena and full of general useful information. We had a wonderful 3 night stay there.
Breakfast is an optional add ... we had one morning. Typical continental style breakfast that was quite nice for the price.

The facilities you would expect from this charming farmhouse are excellent, the situation, accommodation and breakfast are second to none.
The proprietor Gianni is very friendly and extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. The lovely gardens have nice places for visitors to sit and chill out.
Sienna is only 10 minutes away by local mimi bus.
We thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

We stayed at Il Pero for a night traveling through Siena. The owner Gianni is an attentive host, friendly and helpful in providing recommendations for places to eat. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms lovely. I enjoyed the quaint feeling of the place, decorated to fit in with the location and its rich history. The room was large and very clean. The bathroom was nicely updated with heated towel racks and good water pressure. There is parking on the grounds of the hotel. We stayed in one of the rooms facing the street, which meant some traffic noise in the morning, but nothing terrible.

The podere is about a 20-minute walk to the walled historic city. There is a bus during the daytime but stops around 8pm. We walked one evening into the historic city and back, didn't feel it was strenuous or in any way unsafe. The breakfast was plentiful with many options of fresh fruits, breads, cold meats, cheese, jams, cereals and yogurt. Of course there was plenty of Italian coffee to go around. Overall a very comfortable stay with a filling breakfast, attentive host, and a short walk to all the sights. What's not to like?
