B&B La Canonica di San Michele
Ranked #4 of 14 Monteriggioni B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Out of many greats night in Italy, this was our favorite! The location is on a secluded, forested, hilltop, and is ideally located to easily visit some of the best of sights of Tuscany. Siena, the Chianti region, Montepulciano, and Montalcino are easy to day-trip from here. The rooms are quaint and very clean. Sitting on the back porch at sunset, among the garden, drinking wine and Carlo's homemade limoncello is as good as it gets. The breakfast was outstanding, my wife loved the nice little touches that Claudia had everywhere. Wandering around the medieval buildings, including the attached church, was one of those lifetime travel moments. You'll find other B&Bs that are fancier, but none with better a better experience.

What a great place !!! We were here for 5 nights and it was fabulous. Fungaia is basically a 6 house village so you are in the middle of nowhere and can enjoy the peace and quite but it is a really central location for easy trips to Sienna, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and the Chianti region. We also had a really nice day just exploring the local area as there are some nice walks from the La Canonica itself. Claudia and Carlos are wonderful hosts - couldn't do enough for us - including a load of washing ! They gave us plenty of great tips on places to go, restaurants and directions for walks etc. Claudia also gave us a tour of the church which is part of their property - simply stunning. And the breakfast eggs are definitely a must have. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. Hope to get back in the future, a must stay if in Tuscany.

Room Tip: We were in the Crete room as it had a separate sitting are. This was great.

This place is wonderful!!! After 5 days in Sicily, which was very busy, we arrived at this jewel in Fungaia. It is in the most gorgeous location that is so peaceful you will not want to leave. Claudia and Carlos are so welcoming and kind, they make you feel like you have just come home. Attached to the B&B is a small church that is stunning. The villa is beautiful, with pots of geraniums everywhere, (Claudia even told me her secret to getting beautiful geraniums!!) Upon arrival we were shown to our room, which had the most beautiful view and large and beautifully decorated. She immediately brought us water and wine and then told us all about the house and the area. She made dinner reservations for us at Castle Monteriggoni and it was EXCELLENT!!
Claudia gave us a map and books of the Tuscany area and told us all her favorite places and drives. We took all her recommendations and were not disappointed!! They were all perfect!!!
The B&B is away from the busy places, but close enough to visit all the places we wanted to see, and at night it was nice to come back to peace and serenity! We would sit outside at night and listen to crickets and look at all the stars, it was heaven!!
Claudia and Carlos are like old friends who know all the best places to go. You can visit Siena or San Gimiangio, or you can walk their beautiful property, it's up to you!!
Breakfast was yummy, eggs, meats cheeses, fresh fruit or cereals are just some of the choices. You can sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous view while enjoying your breakfast.
Our first day at breakfast there were some bees and Claudia came out and showed us the most amazing trick to get rid of them. Tuscany bees love prosciutto and she put down a bowl with some prosciutto and the bees went there and left us alone!!
My only complaint about the stunning B&B is we did not spend enough time there. We wish we we had booked more days just to spend one just lounging by the beautiful pool or the hammocks doing nothing!!
We hated leaving, but got a big hug from Claudia and promised we would be back!!!

Claudio and Carlo are the best hosts we have ever stayed with. They catered for my gluten intolerance and the breakfast is delicious and you can take fruit and nibbles for your day. The rooms are big and beautiful, and they suggested both a wonderful wine tour and an excellent dinner venue for us. Don't book anywhere else in Tuscany-stay here and then like this review so others know.

Had a wonderful stay here during our 2.5 week Italian honeymoon. Loved it so much that I really didn't want to leave! Really have nothing but positive things to say about this beautiful place. Owners were very welcoming, giving us a tour as soon as we arrived and offering plenty of information about the local attractions/had good suggestions for our itinerary since we had limited time in Tuscany. They have a whole library of tourism books (in a variety of languages) available to guests, which we found very helpful. Room was very nice - clean, spacious, comfortable bed, large bathroom with all the comforts of home. Only place we stayed in Italy that had wash cloths! It's the little things sometimes. ;) Good wifi signal in our room which was also helpful. We felt the most comfortable/welcomed here than at any other B&B we stayed at in Italy.

Breakfast was wonderful with a great variety of items offered - something for everyone. Claudia made us eggs to order with local cheese that was delicious. Best B&B breakfasts we had during our entire honeymoon. Eating outside on the patio was very relaxing and a nice change of pace for us during our busy trip. There is a charming one room chapel right next to the house that Claudia opened up for us to see. The house is located up a quiet dirt road - we had no trouble finding it though since Claudia sent us good directions ahead of time with GPS coordinates to plug in - made it easy!

We traveled all over Italy and this was hands down, my favorite place that we stayed. Close to Siena and within reasonable driving distance to many Tuscan villages. No hesitations recommending this B&B to others. I only hope that I'll be able to return for a longer stay someday! Thank you Claudia and Carlo for your wonderful hospitality! :)

La Canonica di Fungaia was an absolutely magical place. It was a little hard to find, but when you see the gorgeous 1600’s farmhouse with the serene backyard (which is too wonderful to describe) you will feel like you are in a dream. The location was only 15 minutes from both Siena and Monteriggioni and a great place to use as a home base while exploring all of Tuscany. Claudia and her husband were so sweet and did everything they could to make sure we had a wonderful stay. I looked forward to breakfast every morning in the yard with a wonderful spread of food and coffee and juices. While we were there, Claudia’s grandson Adriano was staying with them and he was the sweetest boy and such a joy to have around. You really felt like you were staying at a friend’s house…if your friend owned a villa in Tuscany!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with its own private entrance and sitting room. We loved having our own staircase...

This place fully lives up to its rave reviews. Historic property, gorgeous scenery, abundant charm, and gracious and knowledgeable hosts--a great base for exploring the surrounding area. My only regret is that we didn't walk the nearby paths and investigate the adjacent medieval town. Next time!
