We stayed for 7 nights at this beautiful B&B and would recommend it to anyone.
Location: Central for exploring the area both large and small cities. It is located in a rural location (and the great news is once you've found it - Claudia and Carlo provide a typed instruction list of how to get to lots of places in the area). You could easily drive to Siena and Monteriggioni within 10-15 minutes.
Room: Attention to detail would be my best description - as others have said it is an amazing building. The room was made up every day - toilettries replaced, bed linen changed half way through our stay, extra glasses or cups depending on what you need and more!. It didn't need air conditioning and it was 35 degrees when we were there! We had amazing views over the hillside and we would see deer in the mornings!
Breakfast: We were initially the only guests - yet it was a banquet fit for ten! If we went out early on a day trip (and I mean early!!!) we'd be left some breakfast AND juice and bottles of water for our journey! Finding out our favourite tea type is another example of attention to detail. Breakfast includes meats, cheeses, eggs cooked for us, cake, toast, fruit... we ate well.
Our stay: The BEST part was all the help for planning our week - met with a map, instructions, lots of books and tips of where to go - BRILLIANT! We did visit Rome and the help of printing train times etc were very thoughtful.
Wildlife: A chance to see wild boar, deer (we even saw a badger!)... All at a safe distance!
Accommodation: Bedroom and bathroom to ourselves, shared living room and dining area. We would have dinner (that we'd buy - after all it is a B&B and NOT a hotel!) - but they'd lay a table for us and we had a treat from them of some Chianti!
The surroundings had hammocks set up, a swimming pool, chairs in the sun and shade around this tranquil place... You could use it as a base or as a full on 'do nothing' B&B...
We have nothing but praise for our stay here. Thank you Claudia and Carlo.
